The Simple Woman’s Daybook

Posted on


For Today, Monday, March 30th, 2009

Please visit Peggy at The Simple Woman to read more.

Outside My Window… Dark and Grey – not very spring-like at the moment.   

I am thinking… that weekends are far too short.

I am thankful for… the honor of being asked to be godmother to a dear friends new baby!

From the kitchen… A big steamy pot of oatmeal is on the stove right now,  for lunch we will have bagels and veggies,  dinner will be crustless quiche and a green salad. 

I am wearing… A black skirt, a red long sleeved t-shirt and a grey scarf around my head. 

I am creating… Nothing on the loom at the moment.  I am preparing to paint the dining room/school room in a few days.  Spring cleaning is getting underway this week!

I am reading…  I just finished Left To Tell  by Immaculee Ilibagiza – a very amazing story of survival and Hope. 

I am hearing… silence ~ a very rare sound in this house!

One of my favorite things… Nursing a newborn in bed very early in the morning – listening to everyone breathe around us.  It is the most content feeling in the world.  Thank You God. 

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… The upstairs will get a serious cleaning today and tomorrow.  The dining room/schoolroom will be purged and painted on Wednesday and Thursday.  In between that we have mass, two holy hours,  drum/guitar/piano practice,  fencing practice and school work.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…   With a newborn in the house,  I could never share just one picture!    Here are a few of Greta’s many emotions:

So Pretty:


So Sad:


So Happy:


So Loved:
