Simple Woman's Daybook


FOR TODAY, February 23, 2010...

Outside My Window...the sun is shining, it is warm and I am soooo happy. I have been cold since Christmas, not just outside, cold until my bones hurt. Welcome Spring. Unfortunately, the rain and cold are coming soon.

I am thinking...about all of the planning that must be done for graduation. I do not remember my senior year in high school being so demanding.

I am thankful for...a God who remains the same yesterday, today and forever, that is not surprised by my ever-changing situations and that works it all together for my good.

From the learning rooms...history, book club, math, and keeping on schedule.

From the kitchen...fresh farm eggs, a freezer full of meat, homemade~bread, granola and cookies, soap made three weeks ago can now be put to good use, and I must make some more laundry soap.

I am wearing...yoga pants, t-shirt and sneakers in hopes of a little bit of exercise time.

I am creating...(still)a very large booga bag, felted coasters, and a "studio" sloooooowly.

I am going...to complete a couple of knitting projects so I can start one that I am so excited about.

I am reading...the one year chronological Bible, knitting patterns and not much else.

I am hoping...to get a very bad case of poison ivy under control. Hannah woke up with eyes nearly swollen shut and we are trying to figure out what to do.

I am hearing...quiet as I think and the clicking of keys as I type, it is still early.

Around the house...we are still dreaming of building a barn.

One of my favorite things...a group, of ladies, that meets at a local coffee shop for knitting. People come and go in our group but there is a small core that remain committed.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: the usual things we do each week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...poor poison ivy girl ~ she looks so uncomfortable. Amazingly no complaining. I think we may head to the clinic tonight.



Thank you Peggy for hosting this constant post on my blog. I know if I manage to get only one post done in a week, it will be my Daybook.

Loving the warmer, sunnier weather right along side of you, my friend. Poor Hannah...Benedryl? If it's that severe, maybe a good dose would help with swelling and her reaction.

Blessings this day ~
