The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...

Outside my Window...Gorgeous brilliant blue skies with puffy white clouds, a butterfly fluttering around in the garden, plants that need trimming and heat that keeps me inside...

I am thinking..."Whe will the weather cool down a bit, I miss working in the garden midday"

I am thankful for...The use of my limbs. I saw a woman about my age at the grocery store last night. She was pretty, nicely dressed, and carried herself with an air of dignity, which caught my eye. Then I noticed she had only one arm. I immediately was reminded of how easy it is to take the use of our limbs for granted. What a gift.

From the kitchen...homemade pizza tonight

I am wearing..."House clothes", lol - dark pink and brown flowered cordoroy shorts and a baby blue everlast tank top. They clash terribly, lol.

I am reading..."The Gospel According to Jesus" - by John MacArthur

I am hoping...less humidity today, and possibly a few degrees cooler than yesterday...

I am creating...I am working on a brown cordoroy backpack with horses on it, a gift for a little girl

I am hearing...Cicadas making their unique noise outside my window

Around the house...Finish cleaning windows today, bake cookies for my son and get them mailed out, work in the garden later this evening,...

One of my favorite things...Touching the soft velvet ears of my sweet dog

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...make dental appointments, continue preparing the garden for fall, finish and begin various sewing projects, clean grout (ugh...) :)

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

Though I live in Florida, I am a born and raised Texan, and any Texan knows that is something that stays with you forever. :) My favorite wildflower is the Texas Bluebonnet and my favorite place to be is the Texas Hillcountry in the spring when they are blooming everywhere. I took this photo during a trip to the Hill Country about 8 years ago when my 5 brothers and sisters and I all surprised our Mom for her birthday...

I hope you have enjoyed a peek inside, have a blessed day!


  1. Lots of great stuff and a beautiful picture! You and Kim are making me feel very non-productive at the moment! :)

    I better go get something done...

  2. Non-productive is a word (in my world). Couldn't be unproductive? Productive-not? Productivity challenged?


  3. I need to rewrite my daybook and say I DIDN'T go to the gym and some how I'll blame it on you lol. Love you my sister.

  4. What a stunning photo!


  5. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Thank you for your sweet words. It's rough in this area right now but thankfully we are are able to help others as we can. the LORD has truly blessed us.


  6. We have Texas and Florida in common! And your son is very handsome. My son also wants to serve his country in 2 years. I enjoyed taking a peek at your day!

    Blessings to you!
