Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY...October 12th, 2009
Outside my window... I have red and yellow and purple and lime green in my yard and the mountains are ablaze with color. There has not been any rain for a week so the color is staying for a while although there are a few dark clouds in the sky this morning.
I am thinking... Who makes all this mess in my house?
I am thankful for... family and friends who show love to me.
I am wearing... a long sleeve heathered blue henley top with a back knit collared vest (very warm) and black pants.
I am remembering... actually I am feeling guiltly as I remember that I used to work out every morning and that I need to sign up again. But, each day it so easy to start in with my regular household routine which squeezes out those thoughts and each day blends into another.
I am going... to start cleaning up the kitchen first thing this morning. Later I am hoping to be able to visit my dear friend who came home from the hospital after spending over 70 days in ICU. She has experienced not just one miracle but many there.
I am reading...the Julia Child book, My Life in France
I am hoping... to begin teaching my granddaughters how to sew.
On my mind...
Just the myriad of items that need taking care of today and this week.
Pondering these words..." Fill your life with as many moments and experiences of joy and compassion as you humanly can. Start with one experience and build on it." Marcia Wieder
From the kitchen... I am happy. I have my favorite (leftover cake my family made for my birthday) Oatmeal Cake.
Around the house... I am cleaning out clothes from my closet so there are sorted piles around. This is brought about by an episode on Oprah about hoarding! I decided I was not going to ever let that happen here!
One of my favorite things~being with family and friends.
