Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my's dark at 9:15pm.

I am thinking.....this cold I'm fighting has me draggin'.

I am thankful.....for the recent milder temperatures.  The 30's feel wonderful!

I am walking shorts, black tank and a plaid flannel shirt. . .totally precious!

I am hearing.....the Olympics on TV.

I am creating......DVD's of photos and videos to edit and give to friends.

I am clean up the kitchen, and make my husband's lunch before heading to bed.

I am devotionals and a few low-carb cookbooks I picked up at the library.

I am praying.....for safe travels as my folks will be on the road heading south.

I am remembering.....(after just sneezing four times) a friend from years past (Pete Robinson) who would say after someone sneezed. . .  "God Bless you", and they sneezed again. . ."God Bless You". . . and they sneezed again. . . "the third time your on your own!"

I am hoping.....that I can keep losing the pounds as the scale revealed -3 this morning. Yeah!

On my mind.....we were exposed to the chicken pox so I'm curious what the next month will bring.  Also, my grandpa turns 93 tomorrow!

From the learning rooms....the solar system today. "My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nine Planets".  (Mars, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto)

Noticing that....the Olympics have us watching lots of TV lately.  And it's been fun to follow those amazing athletes.

Pondering these words..... "God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us."  Augustine

From the kitchen.....Chicken noodle soup this week and hopefully a few new recipes from the cookbook I'm reading.

Around the house....the Monday laundry is done but not put away, and the counters are beginning to collect the usual clutter once again.

One of my favorite things.....watching the ice skaters in the Olympics.

A few plans for the rest of the games for the boys, home school sports club, watching a black belt ceremony and the final winter swim lesson.

Here's a picture thought I am sharing. . . The boys did a great job at their first piano recital last night.  A fun time was had by all!


Thank you for stopping and visiting my daybook. If you'd like to visit others who are participating or write a journal yourself, please stop over at Peggy's at Simple Women's Daybook.

Hope this last week in February is a good one for you!



  1. Great piano recital pictures. I love to see boys at the piano. Do they enjoy it? My son takes lesson only because we make him. I'm hoping someday he'll appreciate it more. Funny about the planet thing. I learned it "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas". :)

  2. Did your family not get the chicken pox the year they were running rampant, Heather? My grands are coming up in a few weeks and my daughter-in-law is hoping there may be some lingering pox somewhere around here....
