The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...October 20, 2008...

Outside my window....as always it's still very dark, still and quiet. My favorite time of day!

I am thinking .....about how my coffee is still over there in the pot and not in a cup right here in front of me!

I am thankful for.....the friends we had over yesterday. We had a wonderful time of fellowship and fun.

From the kitchen....I am making granola bars today.

I am wearing....my red pajamas AGAIN, that say Happy Hollydays lol. I really love my Christmas pj's.

I am creating.....a new nightgown out of some of the flannel I bought at the after Thanksgiving sale at Joanne Fabrics LAST year. Also see above. I think I need a new one.

I am going....to the gym today.

I am reading....The Fast Track Detox Diet. I am going to loosely follow this to more so lose weight then detoxify. But I have done it to the tee and felt great afterwards but that involves giving up the bean juice and I just don't want to do that right now. Especially since the weather is starting to feel a bit more like fall.

I am hoping....that my kids don't wake up early today as I have a few things to get done this morning.

I am hearing.....the wind blowing through the palm trees out side. I can't wait to open my windows in a couple hours and get some of that fresh air.

Around the house....I will be homeschooling the kidlins and doing my

daily duties.

One of my favorite things...quiet time in the morning. It just starts the day out on the right foot.

A few plans for the rest of the week..... I'm going to help my husband with the cottage out back, finish night gown, look at my Christmas books and start planning gifts to make and make my meal list for Thanksgiving.

Here is a picture thought I'm sharing....these are the stairs to my grandmother's old house. When we made our trip to Maine I was able to go inside once more. Though the place was gutted because of a remodel, these stairs still stood and the guy was wonderful for letting us walk through and take all the pictures we wanted. I ran up and down these stairs a thousand times as a kid. Slipped and hit my shin and got the biggest goose egg you've ever seen in your life, lol. I love those stairs.

Blessings to you.


  1. That is an amazing stair way. It looks like it holds very dear memories for you. I am with you on the daily devotion time. That is the only way to start the day. Blessings to you!

  2. I am throwing open the windows again today as well. I opened them last week and hubby complained he was hot (plus he woke up all congested) so he turned the a/c back on. Not only do I love feeling the breeze come in the windows, I love knowing our electric provider isn't going to collect as much money from us for usage. LOL

  3. How fun to visit your blog. I look forward to seeing you again soon! (Love them stairs)

  4. Have I told you lately how much I love your heart?

  5. I love hearing your plans for the week!

    And that pic of the stairs is so neat. So nice to have it to remember the good times.

    And I am freaking out at the Christmas countdown on the bottom of your blog - it just CAN'T be right!! :)

  6. What a beautiful morning! I love the picture of the stairway because of the picture it holds in your heart!

    Blessings to you today, my friend.

  7. I just found your blog, and had to comment...I see nothing wrong with wearing a Christmas nightgown all year long. My husband sings Christmas songs year-around, though, so maybe it's just me. :o)

  8. Loved reading your thoughts and plans for the day. And what an "awww" moment re: the stairs! How great is that?

  9. sounds as if your day is going to be wonderful. My started off on the run and that makes me frazzled the rest of the day. Story of my life.

    I love the stair case. Glad they are leaving them alone.

  10. Sounds like a wonderful day! :) Love the picture of the stairs. I want to visit Maine somday.

    I'm glad you and your husband are atleast going to look at the site. Everyone gets to choose what to do,that's the beauty of America. I just want people to be aware of other more Godly men running and really seek God's guidance. Thank you for your kind words! I'm adding you to my blog roll!

  11. Never give up the Bean Juice sister! :) LOLOLOL - detox anything you want, but the morning cup-o-warm Yum must remain! :)
    We had such a nice time yesterday, thank you again! :)

  12. Thanks for visiting my blog, always fun to hear from a fellow Floridian.
    Isn't the weather wonderful??? I am looking forward to some time at the park tomorrow.
    I love the stair pic, the bannister is beautiful.


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
