The Simple Woman's Daybook

It's been over 2 months since I have done a Daybook and decided  that it was time. It's always a fun and enjoyable post for me and hope you enjoy it as well..........



Outside my window...
the clouds are hanging low, it's very overcast and dreary - not what I want - but what I get ~grin~

  I am thinking... that although there are many times I wonder if God really knows what He is doing by the things He allows, I know that HE does and that makes my heart rest in His peace

  I am thankful... that my Dad is having some better days

  In the kitchen... I have all the ingredients ready to make a big pot of good ole Cajun Gumbo either this afternoon or tomorrow. Can I just say, it is very good!

  I am wearing... some black jeggings, grey sweater with tee underneath - comfy clothes for this dreary day

  I am creating...plans for our trip to Savannah, Ga. the first week of April.  We've never been and I really can't believe that, but we're meeting some dear friends there and I'm so excited.

I am wondering...
about a whole lotta there ever a time when one doesn't wonder?  And, I do believe that the older we get, the more we tend to wonder. ~smile~

I am reading...
Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend - a book about when to say yes, when to say no and taking control of your life.  I highly recommend it, one of the best books of this type that I have ever read.

  I am see the Lord work in miraculous ways this coming year in lives and in our country

I am looking forward to...
our daughter and Grandson's visit in March.  She's on Spring Break and will come for a few days.

I am learning...
to have a better attitude about some things that I have struggled with for quite some time.  It's such a good feeling!

Around the house...
well, truthfully, not much going on here but I am thinking about Easter decor.  Easter is so very early this year that by mid-February, I'll be putting out Easter.  I love, love Easter!

I am pondering...
well, actually a whole lot but Valentine's for my little Prince and Princess.  I always like to get them a little something and of course, I have to mail Clancy his, so I have to think ahead a tad.  I'm on to a thought that I think will make them happy and show them a little "CiCi and Poppa" love.  

A favorite quote for today... 

I love this and if we all did this,  the world
would be richer for it.

One of my favorite things...
is slipping into my cozy lounging PJ's after dinner and crawling up in my soft recliner, covering up with my afghan and enjoying an evening with Hubby (and he's in his recliner, see I knew what some of you were thinking ) ~wink~ 

  A few plans for the rest of the week......well, Hubby is wanting to go to the Boat and RV Show being held in a nearby city tomorrow.  I'm thinking I'll be a "good wife" and tag along, but heaven knows, we have one boat and don't need it and we sure don't need an RV.  He says it is just something to do. Hummm...........

A peek into my day...
I got an early morning call from my son this morning telling me that the Princess is running fever.  So, I will get her in a little while and love on her.

My picture of the day.......the Bluebird of Happiness

  3. I was just thinking of THE DAYBOOK this morning and thought I haven't done it in awhile either. I use to do it once a week.

  4. savannah is a little charleston with a french flair. i think you will like it! and you'll only be 2 hours away from me! : )

  5. Good morning! Always love the daybook...might do one soon too. Been raining here ALL night. Prefer that to just overcast and dreary. Enjoy your week-end, and hope Princess feels well soon!

  6. I haven't done a Daybook in quite some time. I enjoy them and don't know why I don't do one more often.

    You'll enjoy Savannah, and April will be here before you know it. ;-)

    It's overcast and dreary here, too. But at least we didn't get the icy precipitation that they were forecasting.

  7. A very good read for me this cold, grey day! I haven't done a daybook in quite sometime,I always enjoying reading them. sending prayers your granddaughter is feeling well soon. thanks for sharing.

  8. Okay, so I wasn't actually thinking "anything" about you crawling into the recliner and enjoying an evening with hubby until you said, "Wink". Then I got this picture of the two of you in ONE recliner under an afghan and...oh, my, I was wondering if maybe you had put on your Mrs. Claus apron again! LOL

  9. Thankful your daddy is having some good days. I am praying for personal breakthrough, as well as a great move of God in our country as well. Have a blessed Sunday!


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!
