The Simple Woman's Daybook, September 14th

First, let my say hi and welcome. Some of you are new and I am so glad to *see* you. However, I have been having trouble commenting on some of the blogs. I’ve narrowed the problem to two possibilities (our son, the ‘puter programmer laughs, because he knows his Mama is no “techie”). But I think it is either with Blogspot (as I am still having other issues) or I may need to load a different browser. I am trying to get this worked out. Please be patient. I’ll be by to leave comments on your blogs as soon as possible.

Outside my window... ~Partly cloudy, which after three days of this, I am beginning to feel “partly cloudy” myself, with a chance of isolated T-storms. I shouldn’t complain. The animals are enjoying the cooler weather.

I am thinking... ~ I really haven’t been thinking too much. I blame that on the cloudy weather, too.

I am thankful for... ~ hope, grace

I am wearing... ~my "everyday" stuff...old T – shirt, older jeans, bare feet; the uniform of farm life ~ same as last week, different color T- shirt.

I am remembering... ~ all I have to do the next few days!!

I am praying for…~ our country, for an online friend who has brain cancer, many things, there are a lot of people hurting.

I am going... ~ to try to learn something new this week (ß this was from last week and I did learn something, I actually learned several new things!) This week, I am going to be putting out some fall decorations and maybe learn something else!

I am currently reading... ~ I’m still not reading, not like I normally do. I am reading my Bible catching up on a couple of magazines I subscribe to. The garden is beginning to slow down, so my work load is too. With the cooler weather, I am ready to curl up with an interesting book and a cup of apple-cinnamon tea.

I am hoping... ~ to finish some projects, so I won’t feel guilty about starting some new projects! I have some gifts I need to finish and some candles that have to be poured.

On my mind... ~ FAMILY

Noticing that... ~ I need to paint and would like to do so before winter

Pondering these words... ~ (my favorite verse!) Some of you know, I have been doing a Bible study with Pam Shaley. A few days ago, she suggested if we didn’t have a “life verse” we should pick one. I happen to have many verses I love, but not one true favorite. So after “pondering” on this, I realized my most favorite is ~

“The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in his love, He will joy over thee with singing.” ~ Zephaniah 3:17

~ He will joy over thee with singing! The creator of the universe, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, will rejoice over us with singing! Honey, this verse makes me want to preach! Love it, love it!
From the kitchen... ~ Either chicken & dressing or chicken & rice, I’ll probably let honey hunk decide (he’ll pick dressing)

Around the house... ~ slowly, I am beginning to get caught up. It will take a while, but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel now ~ even though it is still kind of dim.

I am creating… ~ a peaceful home, a place of restoration

One of my favorite things .... ~ sleeping with the windows open! (ß this is from last week, too, but I love it so much it deserved a two week run!) I also like walking barefoot in the morning dew.

A picture to share...

  1. I enjoyed visiting for the first time & reading your Daybook. I love sleeping with the windows open, too, but Hubby doesn't. Our street tends to be a little noisy. Hope you get some sunshine soon!

  2. Cheryl, I feel like we should be meeting again with great big ol' hugs...first you were gone for a spell from the world of blog...and then I was gone for a spell. At last we have been reunited! Thank you for stopping by and always leaving me words of encouragement!

    I always enjoy reading your Daybook Entries. So...did your honey hunk choose chicken and dressing? :-)

    What an unique hummingbird feeder...and that shade of blue is my favorite color! Your sister did a nice job with the photography.

    Take care!

  3. Life in the country sounds wonderful right now, but I see you are always busy too. Wish I could slow down and have some reading time. It's been a long time for me. I miss those days and have been thinking a lot about simplifying things again.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is always a joy to hear from you.
