The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . May 19, 2015

Outside my window . . . it's 70 degrees and cloudy this morning. It's supposed to clear off later in the day. Still heavy pollen though.

I am thinking . . . about struggles. There's quite a bit of those in my house right now. Would you pray for us?

I am thankful . . . for a good day in the end yesterday. It started out rough, but got better as the day progressed. Grateful as always for my bestie, LBB, who is always so caring and supportive.

In the kitchen . . . the other night was sausages, potatoes, green bean casserole, and mac and cheese. I'm thinking crockpot pork chops tonight with sauerkraut and polenta.

I am creating . . . beading projects! I spent Saturday organizing beads to make it easier to create. Here's a couple of bracelets from the day –

I am going . . . to keep beading as much as possible as I had forgotten how much I love it.

I am wondering . . . about how to get back into a more consistent yoga practice.

I am reading . . . A Very Private Woman:The Life and Unsolved Murder of Presidential Mistress Mary Meyer by Nina Burleigh
For morning contemplation I am continuing with A Prayer Journal by Flannery O'Connor, 
Practicing the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence, 
and The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron.

I am looking forward to . . . a trip in June to Wisconsin's Apostle Islands. Dh is doing his first ever inline skate marathon. I'm just looking forward to some peace and beautiful scenery.

I am hearing . . . absolute peace and quiet. So lovely!

Around the house . . . I need a housework day.

I am praying . . . for my friend KFH. We said goodbye to his 94 year old mother yesterday. It was a lovely service.

One of my favorite things . . . is a private get away with just me, myself, and I. Planning on one very soon!

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . therapy, walking, a fun day with dd for her birthday -- shopping, lunch, manis/pedis. No specific plans for Memorial Day weekend. Just relaxing and working on decorating the new deck!

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