The Simple Woman's Daybook - June 8, 2010

It is so good to be back this week!  I've been busy helping our daughter and family get moved and settled and missed The Simple Woman's Daybook last week. My week just wasn't the same.

Outside my window.......the sun is setting and the patio twinkle lights have just come on.  I love this time of day!

I am thinking.......that while I love computers and a lot of the high tech gadgets, they can sure bring a lot of frustration into my life when something goes wrong with them. ~yuck~

I am thankful for.......my Mom's 78 years of life.  If she had lived she would be celebrating her 80th birthday today.  Not a day goes by that I don't think of her and appreciate the woman that she was and the impact that she will forever have on my life.

From the kitchen.......I made my first trip to the Farmer's Market today and look forward to enjoying some fresh veggies this week and throughout the summer.  Not a lot of other "kitchen plans" at the moment. Shame on me!!!

I am wearing.........silky lounging pj's

I am going.........for my Bone Density test tomorrow morning and for my annual eye exam tomorrow afternoon.  It seems it is always some Drs. appointment for a checkup.

I am reading........"Her Mother's Hope" by Francine Rivers. I am about 3/4 of the way through it and am hopeful that things are going to turn around in the plot shortly.  It's been a little distressing to me, but I love Francine River's writings and feel sure that it will have a great spiritual lesson in the end.

I am hoping........that my daughter will get a teaching job that she will really enjoy this year.  

I am hearing.......the a/c running and Fox News.

Around the house........things are in good shape. I finished the ironing just a few minutes ago and that's always a good feeling.  

One of my favorite things.......is hearing the belly laughs of our 8 mo. old Granddaughter and our 20 mo. old Grandson. Instantly brings a smile!

A picture I'm sharing.........I found this flower arrangement and cards on the kitchen island when I got up yesterday morning. It was our 39th wedding anniversary and Hubby had this waiting on me.  He had bought the miniature Calla Lillies at the grocery store, cut the fern out of the flower beds and found this bud vase in the cabinet and put it all together. I was so impressed!

  1. I enjoyed your post.
    Love your blog name. Funny thing.. my name is Lisa and my eldest nephew dubbed me Cici when he was little. :)

    Glad you are enjoying the journal as much as I am!

  2. Hi Lea-
    My name is Janera Jepson and I host the new Wednesday meme Wednesday Wickedness (http://jjatww.blogspot.com). Don't let the name throw you. We are a family oriented meme that's similar to Linda's Random Dozen. We base our questions each week on quotes from someone famous. This week is Frank Sinatra. Since Linda is taking time off I thought I'd invite you to play during the hiatus. We always post on Tuesdays (we're up now!) so players can play on either day. We hope that you will join us! :)


  3. Lovely daybook CiCi. What a wonderful suprise from your husband. My parents 59th wedding anniversary is today. My dad who is 83 has the anniversary date written on a little card and placed in the "window" of his wallet, you know where the driver's license is supposed to go. I thought that was sweet. Anyway, glad you are making sweet anniversary memories.

  4. Awww ~ so sweet of your hubby to surprise you with the flower arrangement first thing! Happy Anniversary & have a great week!

  5. I know you are so excited to have all your family together in one place again! What a blessing...I miss being close to my family terribly! I am very impressed with the bouquet! He did a great job! Hope you have a wonderful week!


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!
