The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, May 6, 2012

Outside my window... The sky is blue, the sun is shining, there is a slight breeze and there is snow on the ground - yup, I said snow.  We had a storm come through yesterday that brought a spring snowstorm that lasted all afternoon and into the evening.  Hopefully all traces of it will be gone by the end of today.

I am thinking... I am glad I didn't put my flower pots out yet.

I am thankful for... the fact that my dads appointment at the cardiologist went very well and things seem to be looking good.

From the kitchen...
~Today: Pork Roast, Homemade Buns, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Broccoli w/Cheese Sauce, Corn, Green Salad, Strawberry Angel Food Cake
~Monday: Creamy Tomato Meatballs & Rice, Buns, Turnip, Green Beans, Salad
~Tuesday: Beef 'n Broccoli, Rice, Asian Salad
~Wednesday: Maple-Balsamic Salmon Fillets, Seasoned Rice, Corn, Peas, Salad
~Thursday: Sweet & Sour Chicken (crockpot), Rice, Corn, Salad
~Friday: Pork Chops 'n Gravy, Carrots, Broccoli, Salad
~Saturday: Leftover Smorg

I am wearing... Black dress pants, purple shirt, black cardi, black flats.

I am creating... Embroidered pillowcases.

I am going... To see the Avengers this week.

I am reading... Small Changes for a Better Life by Elizabeth George

I am praying daughter to find a job for the summer.

Pondering these words... The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook. (William James)

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

I am hearing... The air purifier running & the shower.

Around the house...Finish up the extra laundry and hopefully get the decks cleaned up and ready for summer use.

One of my favorite things... Sitting with my family in the evening and catching up on everyone's day.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
~Monday: The whole family is going to see The Avengers at the theatre.  Going to the theatre is not something we do very often.
~Tuesday:  Planting in the garden (weather permitting)
~Wednesday: Finish cleaning out rosebed (weather permitting)
~Thursday: Shopping
~Friday: Housework
~Saturday: Relax

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Beautiful spring pinks from my mystery bush in the garden.

Thank you Peggy for the The Simple Woman's Daybook {follow links to read more}.


  1. I liked your daybook post, and I browsed through some of your photos. You have a knack for decorating that I certainly lack.

    And snow? Wow!


  2. Great way to organize your week!

  3. I really enjoy the simple daybook posts. Such a fun and easy way to *meet* a fellow blogger and keep up to date! Love the color of your tulips in the previous post!

  4. I haven't seen this day book idea before. It's really lovely. Sounds like a great week ahead.

  5. Hard to imagine snow in May, but it's currently in the 70s and has been warm enough for the air conditioner for weeks where I live. Other than the snow thing, it sounds like you'll be having a great week! Thanks for stopping by my blog today to say hello.

  6. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments :)


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
