The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, May 27, 2012

Outside my window... Cloudy and cool.  We are supposed to get more rain today.

I am thinking... Of everything I need to do today to get ready for my daughter's birthday celebration we are having.

I am thankful for... My wonderful daughter.

From the kitchen...
~Today: Out for lunch to celebrate daughter's birthday
~Monday: Teriyaki Beef & Mushrooms, Rice, Asian Salad, Rocky Road Cake
~Tuesday: Chicken & Bacon Casserole, Peas, Cauliflower, Salad, Lemon Meringue Pie
~Wednesday:  Pizza Skillet Hot Dish, Garlic Tear & Share Bread, Ceasar Salad, Italian Cream Coconut Cake
~Thursday: Tuscan Tilapia, Rice, Green Beans, Turnip, Salad, Rocky Road Cake
~Friday: Pork Stew, Buns, Salad, Lemon Meringue Pie
~Saturday: Leftover Smorg

I am wearing... Black Dress Pants, Black Tank top, Deep Pink Cardigan

I am creating... Birthday Gifts

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

I am praying for... My daughter finds a full time job.

Pondering these words... Set your mind on things above.

I am still hoping... The weather will finally warm up as the nights are still near freezing.

I am hearing... The air purifier, the furnace, otherwise it is still quiet this morning.

Around the house... We are getting a new bathtub installed!!

One of my favorite things... Family movie nights.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Yard & Garden work, Tuesday we are having contractors coming to replace our bathtub (been waiting a long time for this!) and farm sitting for my parents as they go to visit some family.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

My back door welcome!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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


  1. Happy Birthday to your daughter! Daughters are such a wonderful blessing! Your menu for the week sounds divine. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend. :-)

  2. Alana, this is so sweet. Reminds me so much of my younger days. I always made a weekly menu plan. Now that It's just the two of us I just kindof do a mental plan. We always have beef, pork, and chicken in the freezer so it's easy to just decide in the morning what I will fix. Wishing your daughter a Happy Birthday and great aspects for finding a job.
    p.s. Loved your back door welcome.

  3. Thanks for your comments on my blog.

    Snap on two counts ... we're currently planning for a new bathroom and my family call me Alana (after the song Eileen Alana).

  4. House at Bluebird Lane - Thank you and I will pass on the Birthday greeting to my daughter :)

    Jann - Thank you. I've been trying some new recipes since I've been getting bored with my usual ones. I will pass along the Birthday greetings to my daughter.

    Eileen - Hope you share pictures of your new bathroom once it is done :)

  5. I hope you have a wonderful birthday celebration with your daughter! Happy Sunday! Angie xo

  9. I always enjoy reading your simple woman's daybook though I normally don't comment. Wanted to let you know that I do read it each time. Your menus always sound so good. I wish I were better at planning the dinner meals a week in advance.
    Happy B-day to your daughter. Fingers are crossed that she will be able to find a new job,
    Have fun getting your new bathtub.

  10. Jana - Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a note :) I will pass on the wishes to my daughter. I am really bad at coming up with last minute meal ideas so I plan my weekly meals out of necessity - lol.


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!
