The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window . . . is a beautiful, sunny day! It's in the '40s and feels like spring compared to the bitter cold we've been experiencing. The beauty and warmth are beckoning to me to take a walk.

I am thinking . . . that I really, really want to be done with this nasty cold I've had for days. I am trying to remember that when it's over, I will feel very thankful for good health again. What I really want, though, is to be is thankful IN THE MIDST of the sickness.

I am smelling . . . not much with this cold but I do smell a faint whiff of lavendar from the soap that my friend and I made the other day.

I am thankful . . . for family. Sundays are usually a day of visiting, and yesterday was no exception. We spent several hours at M.'s sister's house with her family, another sister and her family, as well as his parents. What fun we had together - just talking and laughing over coffee with Hank Williams blaring in the background. I love you all!

I am going . . . nowhere for the next few days but will need to go out towards the end of the week to pick up ingredients to make stromboli for M.'s birthday dinner. On Saturday my sister and I are going for tea and thrifting for her birthday.

From the kitchen . . . meatball sandwiches with green beans for supper. And some sort of dessert if I don't run out of time . . . and energy.

Around the house . . . cleaning, laundry and writing up schoolwork for this week - all the things I didn't get done on Saturday since all I did then was sleep and watch "Sense & Sensibility."

Some of my favorite things . . . a clean house, handsome sons and a quiet week.
