Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... January 11, 2010

Outside my window... cold, 25 degrees outside.  The air looks pretty clear here by the mountains,but because of the inversion that is so common here, the air at a lower elevation is hazy.

I am thinking... how nice it is inside my warm house (73 degrees).

I am thankful for... time spent at Christmas with all my family.

I am wearing... jeans, a long sleeved blue henley T-shirt and a blue jacket top that I bought for $5.00!

I am remembering...how fun it was to watch my little 9 month old grandson crawl across the floor and explore all the new (to him) things in my house.

I am going...with my daughter to look for her new sewing machine.

I am currently reading... well, I am going to check my library for the book club book for this month which is Everything's Fine.  By my bedside is Cup of Comfort.

I am hoping... to each less food and lose a few more pounds this week.  I ate too much over the holidays and it shows.
On my mind... needing to make several Dr. appointments and get my flu shot.

Noticing that...my house seems much bigger since all the Christmas is put away.  I am loving the space.

Pondering these words... "Have I done any good in the world today?  Have I helped anyone in need?  Have I cheered up the sad, and made someone feel glad?  If not I have failed indeed."  These are words of a favorite song.
From the kitchen...trying to keep it clean and clear this week.

Around the house... some bills that need posting, some sewing done for my aunt that needs to be returned to her, my bathroom closet and drawers are straightened because I am looking for a missing ring.

One of my favorite things~ new pictures on my desk of my grandchildren that I got as presents for Christmas.

From my picture journal...

Silhouettes of my grandchildren.

I also enjoy reading your Daybook journal entries. I also went shopping with my daughter this morning to Joann's and then to Pine Needles in Gardner Village to get a quilt kit to make a new grandson a quilt. He will be born sometime next month.
Enjoy your Week,

I love it when you do this...simple and yet so "normal" and peaceful.

Great daybook Jean. I always love your daybook entries! It's just like having a little visit together. What fun to get to go shopping for a sewing machine with your daughter! I miss doing things like that living so far away from mine. Have a wonderful day!! xxoo
