The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . June 9, 2015

Outside my window . . . after heavy rains yesterday, it is 73 and clear this morning. 

I am thinking . . . about feeling better emotionally after tackling something potentially stressful yesterday.

I am thankful . . . for my bestie who always has my back.

In the kitchen . . . last night was sweet and spicy pork chops and mac & cheese. Tonight I'm not so sure as I've got to sit down and make my menu list later today.

I am creating . . . specific creativity has been on hold lately. Not sure what will jumpstart it.

I am going . . . to therapy and then to swap out my new bike for a happier color. 

I am wondering . . . about the future possibility of going back to work.

I am reading . . . Norwegian by Night by Derek B. Miller. It is unexpectedly good. I thought it sounded intriguing, but I can barely put it down to get anything else done.

I am looking forward to . . . figuring out some things about the future.

I am hearing . . . Squeaker snoring at my feet. The clock ticking. A plane flying over my house.

Around the house . . . I'm working on another new routine. This one is the best I've found in a while. I don't think it's the routines or even me that are the problem. I think it's the constantly shifting stress that plays havoc with my routines.

I am praying . . . for more improvements around the home front. Things are getting better. I'm focusing on being less reactive to everyone else's stress and moods.

One of my favorite things . . . is reading fiction. For some reason, I tend to feel guilty about reading for pleasure lately. I'm really working on allowing myself time and space to enjoy the experience again.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . coffee with a friend tomorrow. Driving dh to an out town meeting on Thursday. An afternoon of cooking freezer meals on Friday, and then no big plans for the weekend.

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