Simple Woman’s Daybook

simple-woman-daybook-large October 26, 2009

Outside my window...gloomy, grey skies and 42 degrees. 

I am thinking...a little “shut eye” would do me good this afternoon.

I am thankful working dishwasher.

From the learning rooms...we’ll be watching a few “Families of the World” dvd’s this week.  I picked them up at the library. . . Ghana, Australia and China

From the kitchen...leftover spaghetti for dinner and chicken noodle soup this week.

I am wearing...jeans and a soft, fuzzy, dark brown sweatshirt

I am creating...postcard, Christmas letter ideas

I am stay on top of the clutter which accumulates in the office.  (I’m hoping positive thinking helps ;))

I am reading...the October issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray magazine.

I am hoping...our 3 days of health and wellness continue after a bout of the stomach flu last week.

I am hearing...a very tired, fussy, two year old who needed a longer nap.

Around the house...I hear the basketball bouncing outside, the washer stopped and needs to be put into the dryer and the kitchen is temporarily clean from lunch.

One of my favorite things...Lucy the cat purring on my lap.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...three excited boys who found success in their trap line today. . . a raccoon.

Read other daybooks or create one of your own by going HERE.

Happy Monday,



  1. Great photos. Where in the midwest are you? We are in Wisconsin. I love some of Rachel Ray's ideas too.

  2. It would be a good afternoon for a little shut eye! My littlest decided she wanted to take a nap and I told her to go for it :-) After she fell asleep I suddenly felt panicked thinking perhaps she wasn't feeling well. But she's up and perfectly fine...WHEW! Stay healthy there!

  3. What a great photo! How close in age are your boys?

  4. That's the best photo ever! Totally captures boys and their excitement over things like that. (Ben still acts like that over some things...shhh don't tell) :)

  5. I check out those dvds from our library too. I really enjoy them. I hope you all have a healthy, good week.

  6. I love the photo.
    How wonderful to have a daughter, too. I loved reading your daybook and will be back.
