The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . March 3, 2015

Outside my window . . . gray, cloudy skies. We are in the upper 40s, heading up to mid 60s, but with rain. Tomorrow brings more rain, changing to sleet and snow with a possible accumulation as temperatures dip back down below freezing for a couple of days. Nashville weather is much like a menopausal woman!

I am thinking . . . what a good day I had yesterday. My bestie and I were discussing how much just turning the calendar from February to March lifts the spirit.

I am thankful . . . for a good worship service and fellowship on Sunday.

In the kitchen . . . last night I attempted making fried rice for the first time ever. It wasn't fabulous, but it wasn't awful either. I've got some ideas on how to improve it next time.

I am creating . . . a secret crochet project to be revealed later. 

I'm also working on some home decor items for spring.

I am going . . . to therapy, out to lunch, and then for a sauna session. After that home for some sewing and cleaning.

I am wondering . . . how to stick to the spring cleaning plan I've set up. Wondering about methods of motivating myself.

I am reading . . . on a whim, I started a new book last night -- Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Myth, Metaphor & Morality by Mark Field. My kids and I watched Buffy reruns all through their teenage years, and recently dh and I have been watching them. On the one hand it's a silly, sometimes very dark program, but it certainly hit a nerve with the public at large. References to Buffy crop up everywhere. She's even listed as one of the 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived. I couldn't put it down last night, and I'm still in the introduction!

I am looking forward to . . . plans I've made for the next 10 days or so. Sort of a spring reboot for my lifestyle approach. That sounds very ambitious, doesn't it!?!

I am hearing . . . total quiet.

Around the house . . . spring cleaning is on the horizon!

I am praying . . . friends who have lost loved ones. A friend's granddaughter who is in treatment for cancer. Healing for so many people from various diseases and injuries that always seem to come during the cold weather.

One of my favorite things . . . is my birthday! Friday is another one to celebrate. I'm just a kid at heart and always look forward to my birthday as day to guiltlessly enjoy things I like.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . lots of sewing and crafting. Lunch with dd on Wednesday and maybe a walk with dh if the weather cooperates. A meeting with a PhD candidate, and then celebrating my birthday with a weekend of fun activities with family and friends.

Here's a picture for thought I am sharing . . .
