The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today...
Saturday, March 23, 2019

Looking out my window...

I am thinking...
Of the things I need to get done this weekend
vs. the things I want to get done this weekend.

I am thankful for...
Date nights with hubby.

One of my favorite things...
It's not about the coffee,
it's about the senses,
the feel of the cup & warmth,
the scent & steam,
and of course, the taste :)

I am creating...

~Some cards I made last month.
 I am currently working on some Easter cards.~

I am wearing... 
Red jeans & a black t-shirt.

I am hearing...
My Saturday playlist playing,
the air purifier running.

I am reading...
The Paradise of Glass by Petra Durst-Benning
The Rest of God by Mark Buchanan

I am learning...
That getting up at 5:00am is not as hard as I thought it would be.

Around the house...
Getting ready for a family Spring BBQ this next weekend.

In my kitchen...

In my garden...
The snow is finally beginning to melt.

Pondering these words... 
"The one who is most free is the one who turns
 the work of his hands into sacrament, into offering. 
All he makes and all he does
 are gifts from God, through God, and to God.
~From "The Rest of God" by Mark Buchanan

This past week...
~Went to see the Green Book - Such a good movie. One of the best I've seen in awhile.
~Re-started my walking program - I was surprised how sore I was!
~I got a start on some Easter cards.
~Had a lovely visit with my parents - it was good to see they are recovering from their colds.
~Hubby & I weren't able to attend the Home & Garden Show as I ended up working late,
but we did go out to a nice restaurant and enjoyed such delicious & relaxing dinner out.

A few plans for the upcoming week...
~Keep up with my walking program this week~
~Family Spring BBQ~
~DD is coming home for the weekend~
~Shopping with DD - we are looking for a dress for me
for her wedding & we will be going for a dress fitting for her~

A moment from my day...

~Hubby & I  are getting ready for July 1st
with these new Canada Day t-shirts we found!~


~Finding the amazing in the simple~

  4. Thank you for sharing that you needed to list the things that you NEEDED to get done and the things you WANTED to get done. That really spoke to me because sometimes I stress over not getting accomplished everything that I had on my to do list.
