The Simple Woman's Daybook



FOR TODAY: March 30, 2009


Outside my window...It is still very dark since it's 4:33 am. I will actually be awake to see the sun rise today. So unlike me. I have been basically sleeping the last few days away. I hate allergies, I hate Benadryl.

I am thinking...about Trucker and how he has to get up this early every morning and how strong he is to do this.

I am thankful for...the fact that he does awake this early to take care of his family. How lucky I am to have found him and how I continue to be lucky having him in my life.

From the kitchen...I am hearing the coffee maker starting it's early morning hiccuping to life. I smell the coffee and am waiting patiently.

I am wearing...a dark gray pair of jogging pants, my night shirt in pale green, and a flannel long sleeved man's shirt over the two of them. It's chilly in the house this morning and I can't be held responsible for how I look.

I am creating...a home for my family's sanctuary. A place we all want to be together. Full of laughter, learning and good times.

I am going...to the store later to pick up a few things we need.

I am reading...nothing at the moment but fixing to start "The Necklace" by Cheryl Jarvis. I hear it's very good.

I am hoping...that the rains stop so I can get my laundry done and hung out, my rosebushes planted and to be able to transfer my seedlings into containers.

I am hearing...absolutely nothing but silence this early. Nothing but the sound of me pecking away at the keyboard.

Around the house...I have a bathroom left to clean and scrub, dishes to do and laundry as well.

One of my favorite things...is hearing the birds awaken each morning, hearing the sounds of the kids feet as they descend the staircase to get off to school and the laughter that goes along with it.

A few plans for the rest of the week...gardening, working on about 50 more articles, cleaning and just enjoying each day to it's fullest.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...Princess went to the zoo last week and took several pictures. This was one of my favorites.

I love the quiet of early mornings, the smell of coffee, the planning of chores to be done around the house.
