The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . September 9, 2014

Outside my window . . . foggy! The old wives tale around here is the more fogs in August and September, the more snow come winter. We shall see.

I am thinking . . . autumn colds are for the birds!

I am thankful . . . that I am feeling better after a weekend of doing nothing but fighting a fever.

In the kitchen . . . grilled burgers, baked beans, sweet potato barrels, and chips.

I am wearing . . . one my cotton gowns (as usual)

I am creating . . . a rug for the guest room and a shawl. Pretty soon I've got to get started on projects for Presents with a Purpose.

I am going . . . therapy and then back home to do some paperwork and maybe a bit of crafting (yoga's on old until I'm fever free for 24 hours).

I am wondering . . . how our society arrived at the level of loathing so many women feel for their bodies. I wrote a post last week about weight and self worth and was kind of blown away by some of the responses I got via Facebook. Lots of self criticism out there!

I am reading . . . Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo. Almost there, just didn't feel much like reading over the weekend.

I am looking forward to . . . a quick trip next week with dh to Connecticut. He's got a meeting and I get to tag along.

I am hearing . . . dogs settling in for morning naps, and birds chirping. It's interesting how the fog changes sound.

Around the house . . . still some reorganizing (although not as much as I'd hoped) and thinking about some autumn decor.

I am praying . . . for the global issues. 

One of my favorite things . . . is starting a new Precept study. It's kind of the way I used to feel about starting back to school. I did some "homework" last night, and it felt good to stretch those muscles again.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . coffee with a friend tomorrow. Precept class on Thursday (I'm providing snacks). Lunch with a college friend on Friday. Alan has class on Saturday, and then church on Sunday (I missed last week with my cold).

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing . . . 
This is Steve, my new buddy.
Steve went exploring over the weekend.

  1. What a quirky , fun picture. I hope you will share more about creating the rug. I have seen a few kinds on Pinterest but haven't tried any. Hope you feel better soon ! Blessings !

  2. How are you liking the book Breakfast with Buddha? You've got me curious :) Also, I agree that our society has gone way over the edge with self-criticism.
