The Simple Woman's Daybook - September 14, 2009

FOR TODAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th EDITION...


Outside my window... a slightly overcast day.

I am thinking... of the scripture I read this morning:

"... be imitators of God (copy Him and follow His example) as well-beloved children (imitate their father.)" Ephesians 5:1 AMP

I don't know about you, but when I was a little girl I wanted to do everything my daddy did. It always tickled me if someone told me that I looked just like my daddy. I should have that same attitude about Abba Father.

I am thankful for... a week off work!

From the kitchen... chicken and dumplings.

I am wearing...my favorite blue jean capris and an aqua T-shirt.

I am creating... treasures out of some of my yard sale goodies. Stay tuned for pictures in upcoming days.

I am going... nowhere today! I'm having a blessed day at home.

I am reading... I just finished re-reading Catherine Marshall's "Christy," one of my all-time favorite books.

I am hoping...to get some projects done during my week off, but also to rest and relax - which is very hard for me!

I am hearing... the breezes in the trees across the road because I get to have my windows open. It's only 68 degrees right now!

Around the house... so many things to be done I can hardly list them. I don't understand anyone that gets bored at home. There are so many things to do! (And, I did used to be a stay at home mom and led a very full and happy life.)

One of my favorite things... saving money and I'm hoping to get better at doing so.

A few plans for the rest of the week: attending a Jeff and Sheri Easter concert, the farmer's market, yard sale-ing, and attending a John Starnes concert.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...


This is another photo I took of the place where my dad grew up.

However, the pond wasn't there when he was a boy.

I so love your photo, is that your yard? It is so nice to see you again Jerri. I wish we had our windows open the humidity due to all the rain is bad,
Blessings to you these week off, more work being at home then being out.

We saw Jeff & Sheri Easter in concert last year at the fair. It was so much fun! Hope you have a terrific week. Karen

Enjoy your week off. Hopefully you'll get lots of time for bike riding and more beautiful picture taking. :)
