The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, March 17, 2013

Outside my window... The sky is grey and there is a slight breeze and gentle snow falling and it is cold.

I am thinking... Of how it feels like spring will never arrive.

I am thankful for... Hubbies who give an extra hand when you are feeling sick.

From the kitchen...

~Saturday: Leftover Smorg

I am wearing... Jeans, Purple Tank, Deep Blue Sweater

I am creating... A x-stitch sampler

I am reading... The Beloved Land by T. Davis Bunn & Jeanette Oke

I am praying for... Health as most of us are under the weather

Pondering these words... 
Ability is what you are capable of doing,
Motivation determines what you do,
Attitude determines how well you do it.
~Lou Holtz

I am still hoping... For spring to finally arrive.

I am hearing... Soft music playing in the background.

Around the house... Living room renovations.

One of my favorite things... Redecorating.

A few plans for the rest of the week...

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

  1. I don't know where you live, but I can tell you spring is on its way. We had 81° here in Southeast Texas today. It's just a matter of time before you feel it, too.

  2. Alana,
    I haven't seen a post by you in a while, I've wondered how you were doing. Spring is finally on its way, we had some beautiful weather over the weekend. Here's hoping you get your Spring sometime soon too.
    Love the quote by Lou Holtz. So, so true.
    Have a wonderful week!

    1. We have been doing fine! We have been busy but it is good to be back!

  3. Your menu looks so scrumptious! Do you really make dessert every day? Sorry it's still snowing there. We've got light rain, drizzles,
    heavy rain, intermittent rain, and mixed rain in our parts! LOL

    1. Well, I don't actually make dessert every day but we do have dessert every day :) Some days are leftovers.

  4. I'm thinking exactly the same thing! :/

    1. We have an after supper tradition of taking our tea and dessert and moving to our living room and there we sit and chat about our day :)

  5. I would like to come to your house for dinner! I bet you keep your husband happy!
