Lea's Daybook - Friday, September 25th

It's the last Friday in September and it seemed like a good day for daybook.  Thanks to Peggy over at The Simple Woman for hosting this month in and month out.  Always fun to look inside someone's day.

For Today...
 it's Friday and I plan to get a whole lot of things done today.  Even though I do not work outside our home, I still look forward to Friday and the weekend.  A lot of folks might say that everyday should be a weekend for one that doesn't work outside the home, but it's just never been that way for me.  I am a busy woman, I generally have an agenda everyday and usually feel pretty productive at the end of most days. Wow! guess I got a little carried away on that. ~chuckle~

Outside my window...

the sun is beginning to shine brightly through the front windows.  It will get so bright in a little while that I generally keep the shutters closed until it changes positions.  We would love to have the sun come up over the pond in the back of our house, but it just did not work out that way.  So, we get to watch the sun set over the pond and that's a pretty site at the end of the day. ~it works~

I am thinking...

that it's going to be an endurance contest to survive the long road to the Presidential election in Nov. 2016.  May all we as Christians do their part!!

I am thankful...

for my good health thus far.  I have lived long enough to see how quickly our health can be taken from us or comprised to such an extent that it causes major life adjustments. Aging generally brings health issues that few escape, so every day that I am  healthy is a huge blessing.  

I am wearing...

some leggings and a long tunic.  I'm going to be busy here at the house for most today and about all I am worried about is being comfortable.  Cuteness matters most days, but not so much today. ~just keeping it real~

I am creating...

a warm and inviting home.  The decorating process is in full process now and I'm so enjoying our house becoming a home.

I am going...
 no where in particular but am ready to go somewhere in particular for sure.  Hubby and I pretty much put our traveling on hold when we started the construction of the new house.  Hopefully we'll get our traveling shoes on after the first of the year.

I am wondering...

if Jesus came to earth for a visit would the streets be lined and the crowds formed as they were for the Pope's visit.~just wondering~

I am hoping...

our new little Grandson continues to thrive as he has thus far.  I can't believe he will be 4 weeks old on Monday.  And, his due date is still 2 more weeks away.  Little stinker! ~scared us too death~

I am learning...

over and over again that things are just not always as they may seem.  There's just so many hurts behind smiles. It's all the more reason that we need to reach out to each and every soul we come in contact with.  They may well be fighting a battle behind that pretty smile.

In my kitchen...

I am so enjoying my new kitchen and have conjured up some pretty good meals in the past month that we've been here.  I've been doing a bit of bulk cooking and that means that our freezer has some ready meals and that makes me a happy gal.  As I've said many times, I am definitely NOT a gourmet cook but I'm a pretty good plain ole cook. ~ wink~

A favorite quote for today...

Just had to share these 3 from none other than Yogi Berra......
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
You can observe a lot by just watching.
It ain't over till it's over

A peek into one of my days...

My days are never the same. But, everyday there is some kind of house work going on.  A lot of days there are errands to run and about 3 times a week I stop by to visit with my Dad.  I can say that I am never bored!

One of my favorite things...

is watching our new house become a home.  Each day we get a little more settled and the decorating has begun. ~finally~  It's a process for sure.

A picture worth sharing...
Thought you might enjoy a little sneak peek at some of the decorating taking place.  This is our Master Bedroom that we finished up this week.  I could not be happier.  I love the brown, aqua, and golden colors. Hubby and I are most pleased.  Stay tuned for more pictures on Monday's post.

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. The master bedroom looks great. I'd rather have a pretty sunset over a sunrise any day. It goes better with wine. Have a great weekend.

  2. I always enjoy these......I am like you in that I have rarely worked outside the home, and never full time, and not in over 15 years, and yet I am always busy. I have a schedule and I stick to it [or try to anyway!] and my week-end days are definitely different. I am wondering if that will change when hubby finally retires? Soo glad the new grandson is doing so well! Some answered prayer for sure. Love the master bedroom. I am looking forward to seeing all your decorations that willl make that gorgeous house a home. Have a good week-end!

  3. Wow, what a beautiful bedroom you have. Love it.

    I am partial to the sun rising ... the day is fresh and new and a beautiful sunrise heralds the start of the new day.

  4. Beautiful! Looking forward to seeing more. :)

    I was just saying to my hubby, I wonder if Jesus would draw such a crowd and such adoration if He were to travel down the streets of New York City. It made my eyes water, as I doubt that he would. But oh... when He returns!!! :)

  5. You have beautiful taste in decorating. I'm so glad everything is coming together well for you. And what good news that the new little grandson is thriving. The Lord be praised!

  6. Your bedroom is beautiful! Enjoyed reading your post, 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!
