Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, March 23, 2009

Outside My Window. . . winter has returned. A cold, wind is blowing, and the ground is covered with snow.

I am thinking. . . of walking to the mailbox. I dread walking in the wind. I have been known to drive to the mailbox when the weather is bad which is pretty pathetic because my mailbox is only a half a block from my house.

I am thankful... for all the moisture in today's snow.

In the kitchen... the groceries I purchased are waiting to be put away. I found some really good bargains at Safeway this afternoon.

I am wearing... a long-sleeve fleece top and black pants.

I am creating... a short-sleeve sweater for myself. I have been talking about this sweater for months, and now it is on the needles.

I am reading... Lost Lake by Phillip Margolin

I am praying... that our leaders can get things straightened out. I get so discouraged when I read and see the news, but I will continue to pray, and pray, and pray.

I am hearing... the wind. Something to ponder: does the wind make noise or is the noise caused by the the items that are subjected to the movement of air, i.e. a flag, the trees, the dirt?

One of my favorite things... a neat room. Of course, it is a rarity in my house.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week. . . I don't have any specific plans this week.

A quote worth sharing. . .

“Daffodils that come
before the swallow dares,
and takes the winds of March with beauty.”

~ William Shakespeare ~

  5. Oh Nancy...No plans again...Are you OK??LOL

  6. If the weather were bad, I'd not think twice about driving a half block to get my mail. Better safe than sorry, as you could always slip and fall on slippery snow!

    I have never knit a sweater. When I get ready to take that step in my knitting, I'll start with a baby or child's sweater, and see how it goes for me.

    That wind question made my brain hurt. ;-Þ

  7. Nancy..are you OK?? No post since Monday?? I hope you are not getting bad weather??TTYL
