A Simple Woman's Daybook for March 26, 2012

A Simple Woman's Daybook for March 26, 2012

Outside my window...the sun is trying to burn off the grey clouds and I noticed that the grass is a bit green already!

I am thinking....I have so many projects to work on I am not sure where would be the best place to start.

I am thankful for...having more space, including a spare bedroom, so that I can have three house guests and not feel like we are walking all over each other or having to tip-toe around in the morning while they are still sleeping.

From the kitchen...comes much rejoicing over the fact I now have a window to look out while I wash dishes!  What a world of difference!

I am wearing... a long grey dress with embroidery work over long-johns, knee-high socks, sandals.

I am creating... a necklace for Adam, a skirt for tie-dying, a home.

I am work in the yard, uncovering leaf-filled and overgrown flowerbeds, after I get off work.  It is going to be awesome. 

I am reading...A Day in the Life of the Amish in print and Mockingjay in audiobook.

On my mind... is how I am getting better at taking unexpected changes to my plans and schedule in stride.  I used to get all hung up with “I was supposed to do X, Y, Z, but then such-and-such happened and I couldn’t so now I didn’t get anything done!”   I’m glad that I am getting better at it.  I think it is a very useful skill--going with the flow.

Around the house... oh, don’t even get me started….

One of my favorite things... flying kites. 

A few plans for the rest of the flower beds, baking Derek a birthday cake, re-framing concert posters, finishing Adam’s necklace and mailing in back to him, hanging all our picture frames and tapestries, doing my taxes, and whatever else I can fit in.

A small window into my life...

  1. Beautiful! I know exactly what you mean about going with the flow - never been my style either, but the baby is helping me get better with that, too ;)

  2. I love the part where you say you are creating... a home. Yea! And, yes, you are. How wonderful.


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and ideas. I value the advice and friendship that you share with me!
