Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window... mostly sunny, high of 79.  I kept praying that this was simply a fluke and that we'd have winter again, but I don't think it's going to happen.  I caught a glimpse of our Phoebes this morning and they're arrival means, 'spring' is official.

I am thankful... for a family who delights in routine but can still be very flexible, circle the wagons, and crank when life throws us a curve ball.  We've learned that getting a mortgage in TN is far different than getting a mortgage here.  Our particular snaffu means the Anthem house is going on the market in 10 days, so we're in deep-cleaning overdrive at the moment.

In the kitchen... Lauren loading the crockpot with Chicken Parmesean.

I am creating... two new planner page spreads.  I don't like my 'flaps', and this week's theme is 'recycled'.

I am going... to take the girls to a gig tomorrow.

I am reading... I just finished the pile of 1/2 finished books on my night stand.  Time to start something new.

I am hoping... that we can all make it through this 5th-gear stage of life.  Selling homes, buying homes, two trucks/move dates, and Piotr newly assigned to a high-profile project while covering two regions of the country, all on top of concert season.  It's a lot.

I am looking forward to... all the housing situations being settled.  The sale of Anthem, the purchase of TN, great housing for the family currently renting our TN place, etc.

I am learning... about watercolors.  I'm not at all good at it, but one has to start somewhere.

A favorite quote for today... in this day and age where everyone must say something about everything . . .

"It is not necessary to react to everything you notice."

One of my favorite things... going back to bed with a barometric migraine, just to snooze for a few minutes in hopes that drugs will kick in, and waking up 2 hours later feeling so much better.  :)

A few plans for the rest of the week... gig for the girls, World Tour Wednesday, church Sunday.  The rest of the time will be deep cleaning here at home.

  1. My friend - praying for you all through this crazy (crazy-good!) season! And I LOVE the quote. How did you know I needed that?
