A Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...APRIL 27, 2009

Outside my window...Life is beautiful. The hummingbirds are eating from my feeder finally, the garden is growing and thriving, Trucker mowed the yard and it's now gorgeous. Later I plan on being outside to plant more veggies and start some seedlings.

I am thinking...About how much I have to do today and should have done more over the weekend. Oh well, I've got all week I guess.

I am thankful for...the fact that Trucker was home both days over the weekend. He needed that break so bad for rest.

From the learning rooms...That being home each day can be nice if you make it that way. That my family really doesn't care how clean the house is as long as food is on the table. I am learning that living simply is living well.

From the kitchen...I won't be doing any cooking tonight. Over the weekend I made two huge homemade chicken pot pies and will be eating on those again today. Leaving me more time to clean the kitchen.

I am wearing...A simply ugly summer dress but I love it. It is flouncy (that is a word) and falls around my knees. It is bright and vibrant and covered in hot pink flowers and green leaves on a leopard background. I said it was ugly, but it is so comfortable.

I am creating...a home that anyone would feed comfortable to visit and live in. I have finally become the "housewife" I dreamed of being.

I am plant wildflowers today on all the kittens graves. We have lost four of the little kitties in the last three days. They will now be known as the "Wildflowers".

I am reading...various magazines I have recently gotten in the mail. "Victoria", Harper's Bizarre, Organic Gardening and many more.

I am hoping...that I make someone smile each day. I have made it a goal to make at least three people a day smile and laugh.

I am hearing...The quiet sounds of the air conditioners running in the background. I stood it as long as I could but when the inside of the house reached 85 degrees I had to turn them on. Hot flashes you know!

Around the house...The floors are dirty, the kitchen is a mess, the bed is covered in clean laundry to be folded and more to go on the line. But it is HOME.

One of my favorite going outside about dusk and sitting close to the hummingbird feeder and watching them eat. Trying to take pictures of them is so very hard but I am determined to get at least one this summer.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Just enjoying being home and doing my usual things.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...This is how my container garden looks so far. I snapped these pictures late yesterday evening as the sun was going down.

I LOVE usual! One day, I hope to be able to stay at home. In the mean time, I will just be content with gathering everyone for a meal as often as possible, and making sure everyone has clean underwear!!! The rest can wait.

My hummingbirds returned over a week ago...I've missed them "buzzing" me on the porch!!

Happy Monday;)
