Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, March 9, 2009

Outside My Window. . . a light snow is falling. It is so fine that it is difficult to see unless highlighted by a dark background. It appears to be persistent and will probably fall all day, leaving a measurable accumulation.

I am thinking. . . about making a short road trip this week, just to get out of town for a day. I need some new scenery. Today's snow may delay the trip.

I am thankful... that I can stay home today. Another volunteer wanted to work my shift at the hospital today. I got to sleep in on a snowy day, and I don't have to get out in the snow. Life is good.

In the kitchen... the ingredients for a pot of soup are on the counter. Snow days are perfect for making soup.

I am wearing... my robe and pajamas. I am being lazy this morning, remember.

I am creating... another Oddball blanket for the West Coast group from my stash. This one is blue and white stripes, using a seed block stitch.

I am planning... to start another within the next week or two.

I am reading... nothing at the moment. I just finished Forever Odd by Dean Koontz and plan to begin The Gingerbread Girl by King next.

I am praying... for patience.

I am hearing... the drone of an airplane, preparing for landing. I can almost tell time by their approach during the day.

One of my favorite things... a warm bubble bath, a good book, and a cup of tea to soak life's worries away.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . a) send the support group newsletter, b) haircut

A quote worth sharing. . .

in two words - wait and hope”

  1. Nancy, your description of your day makes it sound like the kind of day I'd like to step into for a spell.

    Though it is a tad cooler today, we've had to run our a/c the past few days. The idea of a snowy day and hot soup on the stove sounds quite enticing.

    It takes a brave soul to pray for patience! ;-)

    Enjoy your lovely day. :-)

  2. Your snowday sounds like ours. We lounge in our jamaies and make a pot of hot soup.
    I hope you find the patience you pray for !
    Have a warm safe day!

  3. Wow..Nancy..
    Where are you traveling too?? Not too far I hope??
    I am hoping this means the SOB is better...
    I cannot believe you are having snow is almost 80 here and muggy out..
    Take care and be careful on your journey:))

  4. I hope the snow doesn't mess up your trip.

  5. OH I love a good haircut and look forward to mine.
