The Simple Woman's Daybook - February 23rd Edition

For Today...February 23rd

Outside my window... a few thin white clouds and behind them; gorgeous blue sky. It's going to be so pretty today.

I am thinking...My brother's wedding was so sweet. I'm glad it turned out well. They won't be going on a honeymoon until the fall because my brother had to go back to work today. I called my sister-in-law this morning and asked "How's married life?" She replied "Fantastic!!" Makes me remember how happy I was when Mike and I first married. I need to think about that and act that way more often. :)

I am thankful for...My precious family. I am so blessed.

From the kitchen... Nothing too adventurous today (I'm still tired from the wedding), but I think I may do a little baking.

I am the moment my robe and fuzzy slippers. My wet hair is in a towel (and it's going to dry in the towel and be a mess if I don't get off the computer soon). I can't decide what I want to wear because although it's cold right now it is supposed to really warm up this afternoon.

I am reading..."Out to Canaan" by Jan Karon. I've been re-reading the Mitford books, but I am having to read them out of order. The library never has the next one in the series when I'm ready for it so I am just skipping around.

I am hoping...That I don't get sick. Bobby was so sick last week and I have been feeling sort of run down since after the wedding.

I am creating...Another notecard for the James Challenge. It's coming along much more slowly than I would like, but I figure that as long as I stick with it it doesn't really matter how long it takes.

I am hearing... My washing machine filling up (the actual churning is so quiet I can't hear it unless I'm in the laundry room). Love my washing machine! :)

Around the house... tons of laundry to catch up on. I didn't get any done this weekend. I also need to make my list and buy some groceries today.

One of my favorite things...a quiet Monday after a busy weekend.

A few plans for the rest of the week...More family get-togethers this weekend.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

My matron of honor bouquet. Isn't it pretty?

I have been so crazy busy these last few weeks I haven't looked at other Daybook entries. It's my very time here and I love your site!

I can't wait to look around. But first we must get going with school for the day.

Just wanted to say Hi and I'll be back!

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog. I loved what you did with the bedroom! I really love the look of plates hanging on the wall and would you believe I have never hung any?
