The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . March 17, 2015

Outside my window . . . we have bright sunshine, blue skies with wispy white clouds. We're already up to 60 degrees. It looks like it's going to be a lovely day. 

I am thinking . . . about my dear sweet Yaya. She got much worse on Friday night, and Saturday I took her to the vet. They did all they could, but we had to put her down. She had been my constant companion for 10 years. I feel quite lost without her, but I know that time will help me adjust to her absence. Missing her sweet face and snuggles on the sofa.

I am thankful . . . that the boys arrived home from their trip out west, with the only casualty being a camera that fell from 80 feet up a climbing wall!

In the kitchen . . . last night was roast, macaroni and cheese, steamed broccoli, and rolls. Tonight may be the night to fire up the grill for some chicken and a big salad.

I am creating . . . still working on my secret crochet project and spring sewing goodies. Unfortunately I haven't got as much done as I would have liked, but this week looks more promising.

I am going . . . to therapy, lunch, and then the grocery store today.

I am wondering . . . about too many things to list, but this is my new "go to" scripture -- 
2 Corinthians 10:4 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
. . . for the weapons of our warfare are not merely human, but they have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments

I am reading . . . well, I'm not sure. I've recently gotten several new books, and I'm not sure what to read next!

I am looking forward to . . . another ride on my new bike. I'm trying to go out each day that the weather is nice and ride for 10-15 minutes to get acclimated to the new bike (fewer gears than I'm used to) and to get my biking legs back!

I am hearing . . . dh showering and the oven clicking as cinnamon raisin scones bake for him to take to a meeting this morning.

Around the house . . . I'm continuing to work on reclamation. Yesterday I went shopping with LB and picked a few spring home decor items.

I am praying . . . for my dad and his cousin's in the loss of his aunt/their mother. The circumstances are odd (not suspicious) and the situation has raised some old family struggles.

One of my favorite things . . . is spring time. I love being able to be outside enjoying the warming weather and pleasant breeze. Springtime around here can be a bit schizophrenic, so you have to grab each nice day that comes.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . therapy, baking desserts for the homeless dinner, grocery shopping, and hopefully a bike ride.

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