The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, April 29, 2012

Outside my window... The sun is peeking up over the horizon and the sky is pale blue with the distant cloud cover reflecting pink and purple from the sunrise and the grass is sparkling from the dew.

I am thinking... It looks like a beautiful day after the rain we had the past two days and that it would be great to go for a nice long walk this afternoon.

I am thankful for... Sunshine and rain.

From the kitchen...
~Today: Roast Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Buns, Broccoli with Cheese Sauce, Corn, Salad & Chocolate Roll for dessert
~Monday: Chicken & Pepper Stir-Fry, Rice, Salad
~Tuesday: Porcupine Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes, Turnip, Green Beans, Salad
~Wednesday: Chicken 'n Sauce (crockpot), Buns, Salad
~Thursday: Chicken Stew with Biscuits (crockpot), Corn, Salad
~Friday: Salmon, Rice Medley, Peas, Salad
~Saturday: Leftover Smorg

I am wearing... Dark Brown Dress Pants, Peach Ruffled Tank with a Cream Cardigan and my favorite Brown Tri-Colored High Heels

I am creating... Grapevine Bird Bath

I am going... To try and go with the flow this week.

I am reading... What Happened to My Life? Finding New Passion, Purpose and Joy by Dana Demetre

I am praying for... My dad as he is seeing his cardiologist this week.

Pondering these words... My grace is sufficient for you. (2 Cor. 12:9a)

I am still hoping... That the weather will really begin to warm up.

I am hearing... The furnace running & the birds singing outside.

Around the house... Laundry, laundry and more laundry.  Everything that my daughter brought home from school needs washing - bedding, winter clothes, etc.  At least one extra load or two a day should get it done.

One of my favorite things... The birds singing first thing in the morning.  They are always so happy to greet the new day.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
~Monday: Gardening (if it's not too wet outside)
~Tuesday:  More Gardening (again, weather permitting)
~Wednesday: Drive Dad to cardiologist appointment (3 hr drive one way)
~Thursday: Shopping
~Friday: Housework
~Saturday: Relax

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

  5. Your menu plan sounds wonderful. I remember when I would plan out a 2 wk. menu and shopping list. Now with just hubby and I we are pretty flexible. I usually decide that morning what I will fix. We always have beef and pork in the freezer so I usually have plenty on hand for figurring a meal. Best of luck to your father. I hope that tomorrow brings you sunshine. We are getting it here and I am loving it
