Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, March 16, 2009

Outside My Window. . . the day has already started and here I sit with sleep still in my eyes and being lazy. A light breeze blows the plastic bag scraps that are snagged in my front tree. Weatherman is predicting temperatures in the 50s today, but with snow on the ground, it doubt whether it will be that warm.

I am thinking. . . about my childhood and the mornings that I walked to the county road and waited for the yellow school bus to come lumbering up the road. To pass time, I would break the ice on puddles along the side of the road. Other times, I would scamper (I could scamper in those days) up the ditch bank and scan the horizon for the bus. How carefree my life was, and I didn't even realize it.

I am thankful... for another Monday morning with no commitments. I woke early, rolled over and went back to sleep for another hour.

In the kitchen... the rug frame is leaning against the table with only two inches remaining to twine. I am amazed that I will have accomplished my goal for another month.

I am wearing... my pajamas and some fleece slippers. (I told you I was being lazy)

I am creating... the twined rug, of course, and another Oddball baby blanket.

I am planning... a May support group meeting in Cheyenne. It is difficult to plan and coordinate when I am not familiar with the local resources and meeting places. It is gradually coming together.

I am reading... Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson.

I am praying... for the homeless, especially the children who don't understand why their world has been turned upside down.

I am hearing... the ringing of a cell phone from my bedroom. Of course, that is impossible since my phone is in another room, so the sound's source must be the radio. It sounds realistic and definitely fooled me.

One of my favorite things... Scrabble and other board games. Nothing beats a good game with a friend or a group of friends. No batteries required.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . none at this time.

A quote worth sharing. . .

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb."
~ Sir Winston Churchill ~

  1. Last night we heard a cell phone ring and thought it was John's, but it was only on TV.

  2. It sounds like my kind of day, Nancy. :-)

    I have the e-mail alert on my computer set to a ringing sound. Family is used to it, but it always fools people who are here visiting when they hear the ring, but no one hops up to get the phone.

    I love Scrabble. I'm not terribly good at it, but I love to play. I frequently play it on Facebook when I can find willing players.

  3. Beautiful weather here today, 71 degrees. We grilled outside, the only thing that would have made the burgers better was a fresh homegrown tomato. I laughed when the doorbell rings on TV and Ruby the quilting dog jumps up and looks at the door. And tonight my girlfriend told me "your cellphone rang before" but it was HERS, not mine. LOL Mine plays funky calypso music when it rings!

  4. Nancy..No Plans..that is a first I think for you...LOL
    Lazy days are good..we all need them..Enjoy the rest of your week:))
