The Simple Woman's Daybook......3-30-10

Outside my window.......the sun is shining brightly and the plants that I have planted in pots seem very happy thus far. There's still a bit of a chill in the air, but that is usually gone by late morning. The birds are busy at the feeders that my dear Hubby keeps full for them.

I am thinking........about all the awesome truths that I have been reminded of during our recent Beth Moore Bible Study, Living Beyond Yourself. The study ended last night after 11 weeks. It is so easy to be involved in these wonderful studies and then when they are over, we act as though they never happened. I do not want that to be my case, I want to be different as a result of this study and that is my prayer.

I am thankful.........that I am able to keep my little 6 month old granddaughter when her regular sitter isn't available. What special memories we make and what a precious little girl she is. I will have her 3 days this week.

From the kitchen.........I have taken spaghetti sauce out of the freezer for our dinner and I made some chicken salad to have for lunch. As you know, I'm all about freezing in bulk and pulling it out on a day that either I don't know what to cook, or I don't want to cook. It works so well and I've been doing it for years!

I am wearing....... one of Chico's Zenergy outfits, comfortable black knit pants, with ecru long knit top. I love these and am always looking out for them to be put on sale. They are just a bit more dressed up looking that sweat shirt and sweat pants. Great stuff!

I am creating...... nothing at the moment, but sweet memories.

I am hearing.......
the sound of Tom & Jerry on the TV while my Granddaughter plays in her Exersaucer. What wonderful item they are for entertaining little ones. I am totally amazed all the "stuff" available for little ones today. I don't know how we ever managed. ~smile~

One of my favorite when Hubby and I get in our recliners in the evening and just enjoy "being." We may talk, we may not, we may read, we may watch a TV program together, but it's a special time for us.

A few plans for the rest of the week.........I'll be hosting a Kelly Kids Show for one of my young friends on Thursday and on Friday my daughter in law and I are going to take my precious Granddaughter to a neighborhood egg hunt. She's still too little to join in, but she might enjoy watching all the children and being outside. We're hoping it is a beautiful, warm spring day.

A picture worth sharing..............our front door and porch all "decked out" for Spring.

  1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by today. I have enjoyed your daybook as well,Three cheers for Spring!

  2. Saw your hubbies picture. Is he a State Farm agent or work in a regional office. My daddy was an agent for 30 years. Between working for him and the regional office in GA, I worked for SF for 12 years!

  3. I love those moments with my hubby. We always start our morning together this way, drinking hot tea. You have a beautiful front door! I imagine thie whole house is beautiful! Happy Easter!

  4. Thank you for the birthday wishes! I'm sorry I didn't get around early; I had a packed weekend.

    One of my favorite times with My Hubby sitting in the evenings too, and doesn't matter what we're doing, we're connected. We'll be married 4 years in May, so it's nice to hear from a someone who's been married longer, that it can still be so. That makes me very happy.

    I hope you have a good week and Happy Easter!

  5. Love your door, it is so pretty and springy!

    Glad spring is on its way there. We are finally getting some pretty weather here and I am thrilled! I am having as much trouble focusing on school as the kids because I want to be out in the sunshine!

    Hope you have a great week!

  6. I enjoyed reading your daybook. I thought that was so sweet your mentioning that one of your favorite things is spending time "just being" with your hubby. I hope you are having a good week. Have a very Happy Easter!!! ~Karen
