Simple Woman???? Are there still some of those around?

I saw this on someone else's blog and thought it was great idea. I will not do it every time but I thought it might be fun to do every once in a while. I also challenge others with blogs to try it (Ashley, Paula, Casey). So...

A Simple Woman's Day Book
Outside my window... it is sunny! and a beautiful morning!
I am thinking... I may have to stop doing this for a while because I need to get ready for work.
I am thankful for... Summer and all it brings!
From the kitchen.. We are going out tonight for our Anniversary!
I am creating... My multi colored summer shawl and a sleeping mat for Martina.
I am going... to work today for 3 hrs. then get groceries which I should have done yesterday.
I am wearing... my jammies!!!! I really need to go get ready for work (I will be back.)
ok I am back
I am reading... Bittersweet Country, by Elaine Long (Author of Jenny's Mountain, one of my fav. books of all time!)
I am hoping... to be able to finish this before I go to work.
I am hearing... the guy next door screaming at the top of his lungs (he is disabled, so I guess he has an excuse)
Around the house... I have so much to do it isn't funny (actually, when is it funny?)
One of my favorite things... to do is to sit on the porch in the morning and drink my coffee (Ashley and I got to do this yesterday)
A Few plan's for the rest of the week... Clean house, get groceries, go to the Amish farm get veggies, go out to dinner with my husband.
Here is a picture I am sharing with you...
This is me and my Martina, you won't see many pictures of myself on my blog because I just don't like doing that, so cherish this one, save it in a safe spot, even print it out, because... It is the only one you will see!!! Great picture of my cat though isn't it?

New poll for this week, If you don't have to get up for work, what time do you get up in the morning?


  1. Martina looks right at home on your lap.
    I look out at the lake every morning and, in fact several times a day and think what a beautiful place I live in and how lucky I am.
    I don't really plan out my day except on Wednesday night or Thursday mornings I clean. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays I work out at the club house.
    Happy Anniversary!!!! have a great time.
    Love Ya, Mom

  2. Happy Anniversary!! Sounds like you have a busy week ahead of you. This thing looks fun so I might do it next time!
