The Simple Woman's Daybook.......March 9, 2010

Outside my window.........it is dark and it makes me even more excited that Daylight Savings Time begins this Sunday. Yea!!! I'm more than ready.

I am thinking..........that I love being a Southern Gal. I recently read that a Southern girl always wears lipstick and sucks her tummy in. I think I qualify!

I am thankful for..........my hair. That may sound silly, but I am blessed with a thick head of hair and so many ladies are not.

From the kitchen.........I have groceries bought and menus planned for this coming week-end and the following week. My brother will arrive on Thursday and our daughter and her husband and baby will arrive on Saturday for a 6 day stay. I always like to do as much advance planning and cooking as possible, so that I do not end up in the kitchen all day every day. I plan to start my cooking on Wed. and will freeze it to use next week.

I am wearing..........my cute flannel lounging pajama's

I am creating........well, if crocheting on an afgan for the past 4 years counts, then that's what I'm creating and eventually I will get it finished! I have to be in "just" the right mood and quite obviously I don't get in a "crocheting mood" very often. Maybe talking about it will inspire me to grab it and get to work. ~smile~

I am going......to enjoy seeing my two grandchildren interact next week. They are 17 months (boy) and 5 months (girl) old. The last time they were together was Christmas and the little one had not really even started responding yet. Now, she is definitely responding and it should be interesting to watch them.

I am reading..........nothing but the Bible Study that I am currently facilitating, "Living Beyond Yourself" by Beth Moore. But, I'm anxiously awaiting the release of Francine River's newest release on March 13th, "Her Mother's Hope." She's one of my very favorite authors.

I am hoping........that spring is just around the corner. I'm ready to get my patio all decked out with pretty plants.

I am hearing.........Tom Brokaw as he interviews folks about "The Boomers." Quite an interesting show since both my husband and I are "boomers."

Around the house........our two labs sleep in their beds as they enjoy their couple of hours inside with us before going back outside where they really belong. :o)

One of my favorite things..........is knowing that I was able to get everything crossed off of my "to do " list today. It makes me feel like I had a productive day and made good use of my time.

A few plans for the rest of the week............cooking for company, going with some girlfriends to a Viking Cooking School (I'm sure that will be a blog subject afterwards), and enjoying some wonderful family time.
