Simple Woman's Daybook

For today March 19

Outside my window.....The skies are dark as it's just before 8:00 pm.

I am thinking....I'm behind on blogging this week due to a few unforeseen happenings this week.

I am thankful.....that it's Friday!

I am sport pants, pumpkin colored t-shirt and a taupe sweater.

I am hearing.....NCAA basketball playing on the television.

I am creating.....a logo and letterhead for a small company we are establishing.

I am box up clothes the little ones have grown out of and simplify those closets.

I am reading.....Caddie Woodlawn to the kids.

I am praying.....for peace and direction concerning family decisions.

I am remembering.....the fun I had with the home school mom's basketball team playing against the kids on Thursday.  The kids were even surprised how well the moms did!  It was great exercise, and my teammates kindly encouraged this out of shape player with very limited knowledge of the sport.

I am hoping.....Lucy, our cat, continues to recuperate from a week which included a two night stay at the animal hospital after hallucinations, fear, and extreme aggressiveness forced us to "commit her".  It is assumed that the bizarre behavior occurred after she ate "fish bait" used for trapping.  I even brought the kids to the vet to "say good-bye" to Lucy when it was looking as if she'd be "put down". . .  thankfully God had other plans for her.

On my comment to Mr. E. last night, "We've come a long way baby!  You're fixin' toilets and I'm playin' basketball!! It really is funny considering our lack of talent in those areas!

Noticing that....most of the snow is gone!  In March?  We'll probably get dumped on again but we're heading into spring!

Pondering these words....."We are to hate sin in ourselves and in all men, but never undervalue the man in whom the sin is found."  A.W. Tozer

From the kitchen.....Crepes for dinner tonight.  A family favorite.

Around the house....Piles of clean and dirty laundry to be dealt with tomorrow.

One of my favorite things.....A happy, purring cat in my arms.

A few plans for the rest of the week.....The week is almost done and the weekend plans are few which feels wonderful to me.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you....

We're glad to have you back home Lucy!

And may you sleep as well as Lucy on this end-of-a-long-week night.




  1. Oh my, she looks so content. I'm so glad she's home and I bet she's glad, too.

  2. Wow, you did have a full week! I am so glad your kitty is better. : )
    Yay, for you and the basketball! I think you must be a fun momma.
    I used to have crepes as a child. It has been a long time. I will need to check them out.
    Interesting that you are starting a business. I hope it all goes well for you!
    I love that quote too!


  3. Oh Heather, I am so glad to see Lucy home :) For sure a FULL week for your family!


  4. Hi Mrs E, a very busy week in your household. I love the quote you are pondering on, it's one every Christian needs to have on the forefront of there minds!
