Simple Woman's Daybook - March 23, 2010

Outside my window.......the sun is shining and it appears to be warm, but there's still a "nip" in the air left over from our very cold "snap" on Sunday. Ugh! I'm ready for spring to fully arrive and STAY!!

I am thinking........ that while our country seems very divided over issues, we must remember that God is still on His throne and He is in control. One way or the other, He will prevail!

I am thankful for....
the ability to sleep good 95% of the time. I hear so many folks talk about their inability to sleep and thus far, that has never been a problem for me. It is a rare thing for me not to fall right off to sleep and then wake up "raring to go." I hope I can always say that. My husband often says that I must have a clear conscience to be able to drop off to sleep when my head hits the pillow. Well?????????

From the kitchen..... I'm taking the easy way out this evening. I've taken some chili (that I made and froze last month) out of the freezer and we will enjoy "gourmet hot dogs" for dinner this evening. We really do like them and thank goodness, my husband is just fine with most anything I fix. Oh, the joys of "cooking ahead" and freezing it.

I am wearing......a taupe colored velour jogging suit with a brown turtleneck and my Merrell clogs. I had already pushed this type clothes to the back of my closet, but...........I guess I got a little ahead of the weather. I'm ready for flip-flops and capris!

I am going.......to a plant nursery in a little while to check out some possibilities of plants for my patio pots. I've been waiting for warmer weather and surely that is almost here.

I am reading......the last session of the Bible Study I am currently facilitating, "Living Beyond Ourselves" by Beth Moore. I just haven't tried to read anything else while involved in this study because there is a lot of scripture reading and studying that goes along with it. But, this is our last week, so I plan to start my new Francine Rivers book next week.

I am hoping.....to apply many of the truths I've learned in this Bible Study to my life and not stray from them. It is a daily striving for sure!

I am hearing......gorgeous "Easy Listening Music" coming from the TV. Our cable company offers some great music channels and I keep ours on the Easy Listening channel anytime I am home. I'm not "into" daytime TV, but do love soft music playing.

Around the house.......things are in pretty good shape. Our daughter and her family were here last week and left on Friday so I worked tirelessly getting things cleaned and back in order after their visit and it's still holding together. Yea! There are about 4 loads of laundry laying on the couch to be folded. That will be cleared out shortly!

One of my favorite things......is crawling into bed on fresh clean sheets. I actually get excited about going to bed on the days that I change the sheets. I know, that's silly, but it is true!

A few plans for the rest of the week......I will go for a Bone Density Scan tomorrow. I had my first one 7 years ago and got a great report, so I'm hoping that my bones are still good and strong. I will also go for my regular "trim and color" at the salon later this week. That seems to roll around way too often, but I suppose that is no one's fault but mine. But, it makes me feel good when my hair is well kept and looking it's best and it takes a "trim and color" about every 5 weeks to accomplish that.

Here is a picture worth sharing............our 17 month old Grandson. This was taken while he was here visiting last week. He's our little Oklahoma cowboy! I know, go ahead and say it, "he's precious." ~chuckle~

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Great daybook CiCi. So, does this mean your husband doesn't have a clear conscience? Ha! I'm ready for Spring as well. We had a few inches of snow on Saturday. It's in the 70's today though so maybe this is it! Blessings to you this week!

  2. I enjoyed your daybook, and of course, your picture of your grandson. Must say that I am jealous of your ability to wake up raring to go-- and your sleep habits, for that matter! You are blessed!

  3. What a truly sweet boy - such a joy! And such a good reminder...regardless of the politics of this nation, God is sovereign!

  4. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I am an organizational enthusiast too! I have trained my 9 children that way too. "Everything has a place and everything in its place!"

    Your grandson is so cute. We live in Oklahoma too!


  5. What a sweet daybook. Looks like you've had a great week and, yes, your grandson is adorable! :)
    (Thank you for peeking in on my blog too.)
    In His love,

  6. Beautiful grandson! I can't wait to crawl in fresh sheets, too, especially when they were dried outside.

  7. Hope you had fun at the nursery...I SAY I am going to do something lovely every year. And every year I end up with ferns in my pots and that is about it. Maybe someday! I love fresh sheets, too. There is just nothing like crawling into those fresh, crisp sheets, aaaaah!
    Love the picture! :)


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
