The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY . . . September 28, 2015

Outside my window . . . it's cloudy and muggy. We've got storms moving in later tonight and all day tomorrow.

I am thinking . . . about how to improve my ability to express what I want.

I am thankful . . . that our trip to Chicago went well (even with a reaction to the seafood from the dinner on Thursday night!)

In the kitchen . . . the cupboards are BARE! There must be a trip to the grocery store later today.

I am creating . . . the poncho which is growing quite nicely. I got a couple of compliments on it while crocheting on the plane.

I am going . . . to catch up from my weekend away and spend a bit of time crafting with my bestie.

I am wondering . . . about the tan and white cat that just walked across my patio. I see her from time to time around my house and wonder who she belongs to.

I am reading . . . Marnie by Winston Graham. The novel that the Hitchcock film is based on. 

Also, The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton. 

I am looking forward to . . . another trip coming up! This fall is a travel fall which is rather unusual for me. In a couple of weeks I'll be going to Austin, TX to spend a week in a spa! Happy anniversary to me :)

I am hearing . . . peace and quiet, although I just had a phone call from the hubs, and I do wonder if ds is supposed to be going to classes this morning. Hmmmmm.

Around the house . . . dh vacuumed when we got home yesterday and ds cleaned up his mess in the kitchen, so it looks like today will be laundry and grocery shopping.

I am praying . . . for strength and knowledge.

One of my favorite things . . . is seeing new things. I so enjoyed the museums and architecture while we were in Chicago.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . . everything is pretty normal which is just what I need.

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

  1. The book, "The Seven Story Mountain" looks very interesting! Have a great week.

  2. Chicago is a beautiful city :). I've visited twice and enjoyed my time both visits.

  3. Going to the grocery store is NOT one of my favorite things. But when the cupboards are bare, we must! A spa trip in Texas sounds like so much fun! Happy Anniversary

  4. Oh I feel ya on the empty cupboards deal! I actually went out last night because I didn't want to have to leave the house today - but we had the same issue! ;)

  5. Loved that you shared the picture of the Tsavo Lions! I heard about them from my dad's cousin, who was a missionary in Kenya. Saw them at the Field Museum as well. Have you seen the movie, The Ghost and the Darkness?

  6. Yay for a good Chicago trip. I've always wanted to visit Chicago. Hope you have a good week ahead :)

  7. Sounds like a good trip and looks like you are going to be busy even at home.
