The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...........March 23, 2009

Outside my window...I see the beauty of the day ahead. The green grass now covering my yard, flowers in bloom, my hummingbird pole waiting for me to place the feeder onto it, and of course the birds chirping and the squirrels playing. I love spring time.

I am thinking...about planting my 6 new rose bushes today, if I can find the time. Maybe I need to make the time to do something that makes me happy.

I am thankful for...My family, my health, and my wonderful blogger friends who come by daily to read my thoughts and ideas.

From the learning rooms...I realize this title is for the homeschoolers out there, but in my life I learn something new every day and want to share. I am learning about Crohn's Disease. Trucker has had this for many years now. Up until a few weeks ago he hasn't had a flare up in almost three years. I never ask anyone to pray for us or a member of my family, but if you prayer, please include him in your prayers. We believe he has a stricture which may require surgery. He is making a doctor's appt. today.

From the kitchen...There will be NO cooking today, not even toast. We are having left overs tonight and I am on a deadline.

I am wearing...A silver lame gown and the most beautiful silver and crystal heels you've ever seen. Who am I kidding here, we all know I'm in my pj's still.

I am creating...a simpler life for myself and my family. One that involves staying home more, using less, growing a garden and not worrying about the neighbors. Learning to love what we already have.

I am far as the outside perimeter of my yard to the mailbox today. That's it, no further.

I am reading...the third and final book in the Nora Roberts Trilogy called "the Pagan Stone". Damn good trilogy I have to say. Not quite as good as the Twilight series but awfully close. I recommend if you enjoyed those books (and we all know you did) then be sure and get this set as well.

I am hoping...for the day to be full of Sunshine and no rain. For the gray clouds to move over and let the gorgeous sun I do know exist to shine through.

I am hearing...Rug Rat 2 on the computer in the living room, that child talks to himself all the time.

Around the house...I just say "to hell with it" and ignore it once again.

One of my favorite things...Is taking a moment out of my day to enjoy the beauty of God's work.

A few plans for the rest of the week: hopefully to catch up on all of my deadlines, clean this heck hole up, and spend some time gardening.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Good morning, Isn't life just crazy some times. But it is good to get back to basics and not worry about the neighbors. I will keep your Trucker in my prayers. We have a very good friend who has suffered with Crohn's for years. I know the struggles he has been through.
Have a blessed day and hope you meet all your deadlines.

These posts just calm me so much. Thinking of Trucker. I know far too many people who suffer from Crohns and Colitis. Blessings.

My mom, and our family, has been dealing with Crohn's for most of her life. She made our lives a living hell because she was in so much pain for most of the time. It's hard to be even remotely civil when you hurt like that. But as a family we survived, and have never held resentments for the anger and times she just wasn't there for us. Then one day she finally broke down and accepted the fact that she would have to have surgery. They removed a rather large section and she made it through surgery with flying colors. And a wonderful thing happened. She started feeling better. She was out of pain for the first time in too many years to count. And it was the first time in my 30 years on this earth that I got to finally know my real mother. The woman behind the pain. She's been clear of the non-stop pain for several years now only having mild irritations occasionally. It was truly a blessing that she had the surgery.

If your husband has to go down that path, say your prayers for his quick recovery. But in the end it really can be a great relief for him and your family.
