The Simple Woman's Daybook............May 4, 2010

Outside my window............Rhett and Rosco (our labs) are doing their most favorite thing, chasing squirrels.  They will sit at the bottom of a tree for hours just waiting on one of those pesky squirrels to come down so that they can take off after them. Quite entertaining! Two spoiled dogs!

I am thinking.........that some things just aren't worth the effort and that some things are worth more than the effort.

I am thankful for...........a husband that is quite the handyman. About the only thing that he doesn't tackle is plumbing issues.  In recent days he's been replacing 4 of our light fixtures with new ones.  And, he's a perfectionist about everything that he does.  I am blessed for sure!

From the kitchen......it's going to be grilled burgers tonight. I know they are so easy, but we do love them and we eat our fair share of them in the spring and summer. It's also time to make a fresh batch of Bran Muffins as I ate my last one this morning, so that will be on my list for this afternoon too.

I am wearing.........a tee shirt and capri pajama pants but will be getting dressed shortly.

I am reading...........Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers and it is just as wonderful as the rest of her books and I understand a sequel to this book will be out in the fall.

I am hoping............that our daughter, her husband and our precious Grandson will have safe travels as they come to see us from Oklahoma tomorrow.

I am hearing..........."Dancing with the Stars" on the TV and the clicking of the keys on my laptop.

Around the house............the ironing is done and I will be "readying" things for daughter and family's arrival tomorrow.

One of my favorite things............is visiting with my precious Vietnamese friend while she does my nails. Ami has been doing my nails for about 7 years and we have become very dear friends during that time. She and her husband own the Nail Salon and are two of the hardest working people I have ever known. It has been so neat to get to know them and their two adorable children. 

A few plans for the rest of the week............spending time with our daughter and her family. I can't wait to see our 19 month old Grandson and see all that he has learned since we last saw him about 6 weeks ago.  He is so full of personality and just a delight to be around.

  1. I enjoy reading your day post. Enjoy your Mother's Day with your daughter, son and grandbaby.

  2. I'm blessed with a handyman as well! I can't image how much money he has saved us over the years and is savings us now on this house rennovation by doing things himself. Truly a blessing! Glad you'll be with your daughter to celebrate Mother's Day!

  3. Ya gotta love those handymen! Hope you have a wonderful visit with your daughter and her family. I know you can't wait to get your hands on that grandbaby! I wish I could be with my momma...instead I'll be flying to San Jose! :(

    Have a great week!

  4. What a beautiful daybook entry, you are so blessed. Your hubby is great!

    Thank you for visiting my blog, and your sweet comment....I love your blog and look forward to following it.

    Have a wonderful Mother's Day with your family.


  5. Hi Lea!

    Thank you for stopping by to say hello!

    I so enjoyed your daybook! I too love Labs. I take care of my sons Black Lab, while he works out of town all week - he is an amazing dog, I don't know what I'll do when he come home :O(

    My husband is also very handy, aren't they a blessing in our lives? I love having him around.

    I'm excited for you to get to see your children and grandchild, you are indeed a lucky woman - I'm sure you will be giving lots of hugs!

    Isn't it funny that all those domesticated things, like ironing, are so outdated by so many? I love ironing - it gives me time to think quite thoughts or listen to good music . . . time for myself.

    So fun to meet you - stop by again.



  6. I enjoyed reading your daybook! Your dogs are REALLY CUTE!!!

  7. I bet you are excited about your family coming home. Enjoy your time with them. Love the pics of your babies.

  8. Thanks for stopping by! Have fun with the grandson! My parents are 10 mins away, but the in-laws are a couple of hours away. I know they all enjoy spending time with the boys.


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!
