Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside My Window. . .the street is slowly coming to life. Neighbors rush to cars on their way to work, children sluggishly plod to school. Squirrels scamper the deserted driveways, looking for possible treats, dropped by the distracted humans.

I am thinking...how much I like to linger over a cup of tea in the morning. I rarely drink coffee. In my experience, coffee is not a beverage that likes to linger. Coffee is for those in a hurry; it is a grab and go drink. Tea demands patience.

I am thankful...that I had a safe trip on Friday and Saturday and that I connected with one more patient for the PH support group.

In the kitchen...the preparations for a pot of minestrone are waiting to be assembled. I love soup and can eat it anytime of the year, but I find it especially comforting in the fall and winter months.

I am wearing...khaki slacks and a black sweater.

I am creating...my Christmas gift list and checking it twice, just like the big guy. I have one more gift to make and the list will be complete.

I am going...to volunteer at the hospital again this morning. If I make one person's day a little less stressful, just one person, then my shift will be worthwhile.

I am reading...The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Actually, I am listening to the book on CD's while I knit. I am on disk #7.

I am hoping...to get back on a weight loss plan. I don't understand why I can doggedly focus on projects that involve other people and be successful, but this one thing for myself I always fail.

I am hearing...the timer beeping, reminding me it is nearly time to leave for my shift.

One of my favorite things...a ruby ring that my mother gave me for Christmas. It was such an unexpected gift. I need to wear it more often, but I don't wear a lot of jewelry, never have.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:sprinkling system to be winterized, finish another pair of socks, knit on three Oddball blankets that should be arriving by Friday.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...


Find beauty in your surroundings.

  1. beautiful picture. I agree about tea and perhaps that explains why I never really got into drinking coffee. I prefer things much slower. Have a great Monday!
