The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . October 22, 2013

Outside my window . . . . the sun is shining over the rooftops of downtown Knoxville, TN.

I am thinking . . . about acquiring a new study Bible. I've been looking at The Interpreters Bible (NRSV). I'm also interested in reading the New Jerusalem Bible.

I am thankful . . . that dh and I had a safe trip here last night. 

In the kitchen . . . is not my problem today!

I am wearing . . . my white batiste gown and my favorite shawl. I'm still in bed with a glass of water and a cup of tea while I type this.

I am creating . . . still working on shawls, but a friend asked me about doing a poncho or sweater for her new granddaughter, so I've got some yarn to play with on that as well.

I am going . . . to putter around the hotel and Market Square until dh is done with his meetings and then we'll head back to Nashville.

I am wondering . . . about making more structured time for writing.

I am reading . . .  I am reading A Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L'Engle in bits and pieces. Lately it seems as if I pick up crocheting rather than reading.

I am looking forward to . . . the Michael Buble' concert tomorrow night with dd.

I am hearing . . . traffic down on the city streets and the housekeeping crew beginning their work in the hotel.

Around the house . . . I left things in pretty good shape. Dh is building us a new bed frame since we upgraded to a queen size bed. I'm looking forward to getting that installed once he's done with staining and sealing.

I am praying . . . for a friend who's daughter is having knee surgery; two friends suffering from brain cancer; my dh and some meetings he has this week; dd to finish her paper on time; and ds who is away at college.

One of my favorite things . . . is walking with dh. I didn't grow up doing much walking just for the sake of walking. We never went on walks or hikes. I joke and say the only time we went outside was to get from the house to the car! 

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . heading home today, Michael Buble' tomorrow night, my 5 year old friend Thursday afternoon and evening, shopping with dd on Friday, and Fun Girls' Day on Saturday.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing . . .
dh's craftsmanship

  1. Sounds like a nice time away from home. Lovely that your husband can build you a bed! Our room doesn't have room for a frame where the bed fits the best--and we've never had a proper bed frame in 17 years of marriage. I dream of someday having one.

  2. My hubby and I have been going on walks together too. l love it. It is such a peaceful and enjoyable time together. It also relieves any stress!
