The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . September 4, 2012

Outside my window . . . it is gray and cloudy. We are still covered by the remains of Isaac, but haven't gotten an enormous amount rain.

I am thinking . . . about difficult things. This is a bad time of year for abuse memories, and I've been stuck in a loop regarding two of the abusers for a little while now.

I am thankful . . . for a good day with the whole family yesterday. No one had to work and ds was home from college. Lots of talking and laughing.

In the kitchen . . . we're enjoying the last of the summer veggies from the Farmer's Market. Last night we had squash souffle with peppercorn asiago cheese, garlic okra, and fresh cooked green beans.

I am wearing . . . a big white t-shirt and my pj pants with pink rollerskating elephants.

I am creating . . . afghans, but I am making progress.

I am going . . . to lunch with my bestie, ccd, at a little French cafe called Fleur de Lys Cuisine.

I am wondering . . . why my dd feels it necessary to talk incessantly while getting ready for school!?!

I am reading . . . The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen. It may be too gritty for my taste right now. Has anyone else read the Rizzoli/Isles series?

I am looking forward to . . . doing some beading and quilting in addition to the crocheting I've been working on. One of ds's friends asked me to make him a rosary, so I've got to get started on that soon.

I am hearing . . . quiet, now that dd has left for school.

Around the house . . . I'm doing some reorganizing and a little freshening up. Time to put the summer decor (such as it is!) away and pull out a few fall things.

I am pondering . . . how counseling will go tomorrow. I've been having a fair amount of pain which frequently means it will be a rough session.

One of my favorite things . . . my quiet time in the morning. I read my emails, check Facebook, blog, and do my Bible study. It's restful and puts me in a good place for the rest of my day.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . lunch today with ccd, therapy tomorrow, Precepts class on Thursday, and a quilting class on Saturday.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing . . . 
our haul from the Farmer's Market


  1. Great daybook post! Lunch with a friend :O) :O)
    Hope you'll stop by my blog sometime. Susan @ The Secret to Having It All http://journalingmywaythrough2010.blogspot.com/

  2. I have read all of the Rizzoli and Isles books by Tess Gerritsen and I have loved them all. Yes, they are a bit gritty in places, but they are brilliant books to get stuck into. If you've seen the TV show then be prepared for the different characterisation in the books. The TV characters are one-dimensional imitations of the ones in the books, the books are FAR superior! Enjoy :)

    1. Finished the first book last week. Where was Isles? Anyway I haven't really watched the show, but what little I did know about it made me laugh. So Angie Harmon is their idea of Rizzoli? Really? I'm sure I'll read more, but I think I'll have to break them up with lighter stuff.
