The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today

Outside My Window cold steely grey skies and blissful rain!

I Am Thinking about how to cut back a bit more so that we can send $1,000 per month to our adoption loan.

I Am Thankful For my husband, who balances me so well.

From the Kitchen stuffed manicotti tonight.

I Am Studying nothing – as I’m cleaning files this week instead.

I Am Reading the Fifth McGuffey reader!

I Am Hoping for no rain next Saturday morning. (We’ll be waiting outside for an hour before the book sale opens up.)

I am Creating birthday presents for young ladies.

I Am Hearing children praying before enjoying lunch.

Around the House a long lobster bath while enjoying a movie tonight.

One of My Favorite Things coffee and cream on fabulous cold days.

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week a one hour therapeutic massage tomorrow, World Tour Wednesday as usual.

Here is a Picture Thought I am Sharing With You

My Appologies - I didn’t take any photos this past week. Instead, imagine me, minus the 5 inches I’ve lost in the last few weeks!

Care to Join Us?


  1. Can you refresh my memory if you've already blogged about it....what is World Tour Wednesday? Enjoy your massage!!

  2. Hi Kelly,

    Our family has one vehicle, we live a north of town, and our girls take music lessons 50 minutes away. So - on Wednesdays we load up early (ice chest, studies for the children, lunch, instruments, etc.), drop Mr Perfect off at work, and run ALL our errands. Dr/Orthodontist/Dentist appointments, all grocery shopping, library, lessons, and then pick up Mr Perfect when we're done. We cover between 125-200 miles and are gone for 7 to 10 hours depending on the logistics. It's a long, crazy day, but the beautty of it is - we're home, sweet home for the rest of the week.

    Thank you for stopping by!
