The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . March 23, 2015

Outside my window . . . we have bright sunshine, blue skies with wispy white clouds. It's going to be another lovely day. 

I am thinking . . . about perceptions. It is so easy for me to get caught up in what I think people think of me. I am reminded of the saying, "It's not my business what anyone else thinks of me".

I am thankful . . . the beautiful spring weather we are having! It lifts my spirits and puts joy in my heart.

In the kitchen . . . last night I made a chicken pot pie and you would have thought it was ambrosia from the gods! Sometimes I forget how good a basic meal can be.

I am creating . . . still working on my secret crochet project and spring sewing goodies. 

I am going . . . to therapy, lunch, and then running errands today. Another bike ride this afternoon :)

I am wondering . . . about my trip this weekend with hubby to Los Angeles. He has a business meeting and I'm tagging along. I've never been to LA, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with what to make sure I see!

I am reading . . . The Haj by Leon Uris. I picked it up some time ago from the free books bin at McKay Used Books. It grabbed me from the first page!

I am looking forward to . . . more bike riding and spring weather! Spring isn't at all predictable here, so I have to grab it as it comes.

I am hearing . . . just the sound of Squeaker wandering around the house. We are all getting acclimated to Yaya's absence. It is still difficult, but especially so for Squeaker. At 15, she has never been an only dog, so we are giving her extra love and attention. I don't think I realized how much she got from Yaya!

Around the house . . . still working on getting things cleaned and prettied up for spring. 

I am praying . . . for peace and discernment about life experiences.

One of my favorite things . . . is relaxing with a good movie. I recently read an article about the best "foodie" movies. Sunday night I re-watched "Julie & Julia" and enjoyed it just as much the second time around. 

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . errands, biking, a walk at Radnor Lake with hubby, a massage, meeting with my spiritual director, and then off to LA!

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

  1. I love these posts - random bits of info!!!

  2. I love these types of post. Where do you plan on visiting in LA. Since I live here I could give you some tips. It is supposed to be hot this weekend. Like in the 90s hot so make sure you pack for summer. And have fun!!

  3. Love pot pie!! Haven't tried one homemade; I cheat and get a microwave one - which is not nearly as good as the homemade or those you get at restaurants!!

  4. Julie and Julia is such a great movie!! And I'm jealous of your Spring weather. It is snowing big fluffy flakes here at the moment!

  5. I love these kinds of posts too! And thanks for the reminder of how good Julie and Julia was... I will have to rewatch again soon too!
