Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY...October 19th

Outside my window... The sun has been shining all day but the clouds seem to be rolling in and the wind is picking up.

I am thinking... it felt good to exercise today.

I am thankful for... the warmer temps outside today. . .I loved cracking a window open and enjoying the fresh air.

I am wearing... brown sweat pants, dark brown top and a grey vest.

I am remembering... that I need to cut the boys’ hair this afternoon.

I am going... to the Wisconsin Dells this week with my family, my sister’s family and our parents.  Fun!

I am reading... a Photography magazine I picked up at the library.

I am hoping... (praying) little Marshall’s croup is all gone. . .for good.

On my mind... What are we going to have for dinner tonight?

From the learning rooms... it’s 4:15pm and we’re still finishing up.

Noticing that... we are surviving just fine without TV this fall.

Pondering these words... God created the world out of nothing, and as long as we are nothing, He can make something out of us.  Martin Luther

From the kitchen... a pot of chicken broth boiling on the stove. . .soon to be chicken noodle soup.

Around the house... after cleaning this weekend the clutter is somewhat under control and I’m glad my vacuum was able to be fixed.

One of my favorite things~ warm apple crisp.  Mmm, Mmm, good!

From my picture journal... remembering one of the kids’ summer delights. . .fishing with Grandpa.  (Thanks for the picture, Grandma)


You can enjoy reading other daybooks, HERE.

Happy Monday,




  1. We are transplants to the midwest too in Wisconsin not far from the MN border. I saw your Luther quote - my husband is a Lutheran pastor.

  2. another comment, did the Luther quote come from a particular book?

  3. It was nice to crack open some windows today, but I'm afraid that beautiful fall weather may be heading out of town :::sigh:::

    Sooooo, I'm thinking Mr. A is quite brave to wear that shirt....*wink*

  4. Tammy- HA! I didn't even notice. . .you're right. I better "photoshop" out that #4!

  5. A great memory picture. Grandpa's are special. I hope your son's over his croup. It's a bad thing to have. I love apple crisp too. I haven't made any in a long time. I'm glad you have survived without tv for a while. How long do you plan to do this? I would love to but my husband is a big sports and Fox news fan. Doylene
