May's Simple Woman's Daybook

May  13, 2013

Outside my window...

Finally it might seem that spring is here. No more snow on the ground and the wind is slight and warm. The sun is shining.

I am thinking...

I am thinking of all of the things that I would like to do outdoors. And wondering if I will be able to.

I am thankful...

I continue to thank the Lord everyday for my husband still being here with us. And for him having some good days too.

In the kitchen...

I just finished my meal planning post so I need to make the grocery list to get off to the store and start some of those really good recipes...............

I am wearing...

I am wearing white shorts and a black 'glee' tee shirt with my old standby crocs on my feet

I am creating...

I haven't really been into creating lately! But I am always thinking and always pinning ideas to my Pinterest. Do you Pinterest?

I am going...

I am either going to the store this afternoon or I am going to take a nap. Can't decide which yet.

I am wondering...

I am wondering how I am going to go about getting my little garden patch ready to plant.

I am reading...

I am reading a new medical thriller that I downloaded for free on my Nook Color: Syndrome by Thomas Hooker

I am hoping...

I am hoping this beautiful weather holds out and that I get a new roof on my house this week. That is the plan.

I am looking forward to...

I am looking forward to Memorial Day when my cousin is coming for a 3 day visit.

I am learning

I am learning that I really need to work on being more patient. But it is HARD.

Around the house...
Around the house we are going to start going through clothes. Seeing what fits and what no longer fits and hauling them out of the house.

I am pondering...

I am pondering what TV will really be like without Barbara Walters, who announced that she will retire next year. I am NOT a fan.

A favorite quote for today...

One of my favorite things...

One of my favorite things is summer. And I am so looking froward to the sunshine and the warm days.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

The rest of the week: Darian has Scouts tonight, every morning the rest of the week will be early arising for weight-lifting and cardio classes (for Darian, not for me) Wednesday is church and Friday Justin and Paige will be here. Tomorrow they are supposed to start replacing our roof.

A peek into my day...
This beautiful pot of my favorite flowers; alstromerias, were given to me for Mother's Day by my son's wonderful girlfriend. (Do you call them that when they are in their mid-thirties?)
