The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Saturday, February 1, 2014

Outside my window...
I am thinking... That I actually typed February - where did January go?

I am thankful for... My hardworking hubby.

I am wearing... Black sweatpants and a blue striped sweater.
I am creating... Scrapbook pages, cards, painting a picture and x-stitching.

I am reading... Debt-Free Forever by Gail Vaz-Oxlade and Distant Dreams by Judith Pella & Tracie Peterson

I am praying for... Family & Friends

Pondering these words... Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson~
I am still hoping... To get over this bug that has been plaguing me since the beginning of January.

I am hearing... The radio and the furnace.

Around the house... It is quiet and things are in their place.

One of my favorite things... Candlelight.

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

  1. I always enjoy this Alana! Your menu sounds delish! I haven't made S&S meatballs for some time. One of our favs! Get better and enjoy that mountain get away!

  2. Your violets are beautiful, Alana. Mine are starting to come around for blooming again...I love my African violets. :) It is always nice to see when a woman appreciates her husband...and isn't afraid to say so. :)

    1. Thanks Dianna! I love the cheerful blooms on my kitchen window sill. They make the gray, dreary days so much brighter :)


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!
