The Simple Woman's Daybook

I love it that some blogs have regular features on their blogs. Rosa's Wordless Wednesdays (or wordless wendsdays! :-) and I used to read a Monday devotional on My Messy, Thrilling Life. I'll miss her blog when it turns off at the end of the month.


So I might start a Monday tradition myself. This is from the Simple Woman's Daybook.



Outside my window... is a lot of drifted, clean, white snow providing protection for my perennials. I'd rather see daffodils.


I am thinking... that if the proposal is going to get finished tomorrow, I'd like to see a draft in my in-box VERY soon.


From the learning rooms... Alice is sounding out her words, and the ESL students are making random guesses.


I am thankful for... a clean, tidy, quiet office to work in.


From the kitchen... SHOOT! The bread has been rising for two hours!! Oops.


I am wearing... a comfortable shirt with too-short sleeves, but I'm about to drape a big warm blanket over it.


I am reading... "Tales of Despereaux" where music smells like honey and the light streaming through the stained glass windows looks like heaven. I love it.


I am hoping... for a stress-free day tomorrow.


I am creating... peaceful, clutterfree rooms in the house.


I am hearing... the silence of children sleeping and the distant sound of the Space Channel.


Around the house... the house is creaking as the temperature outside drops still further. -29 C and dropping to -32 C for tomorrow morning. Luckily very little wind.


One of my favorite things... mindless finger exercises on the piano, feeling the strength coming back.


A few plans for the rest of the week... birthday lunch, piano lessons, gymnastics, and ending with a potluck supper on Saturday.


Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
