A Simple Woman's Daybook


FOR TODAY, SEPTEMBER 25TH, 2009

Outside my window...it is sunny and warm, a positively lovely, early autumn day.

I am thinking of...how much I would like to jump out of this bed (bad back) and accomplish a thousand things

I am thankful for... being able to roll over in bed today and for all the years of good health that I have had.

From the learning rooms... my son is working hard on the paperwork he's missed at school from being ill.

From the kitchen... nothing much is happening today, but I am planning to burn some cherry vanilla incense to make up for it.

I am wearing... my favorite pajamas and not particularly lovely today.

I am creating... dreams, am spinning dreams today.

I am going... to try and stretch some to see if I can gain a little more mobility.

I am reading... all the magazines and catalogues I never have time for as well as catching up on my favorite blogs!

I am hoping... for opportunity and God's blessing.

I am hearing... Eva Cassidy playing as well as some beloved instrumentals. They feed my soul.

Around the house... it is very q.u.i.e.t.

One of my favorite things... burning incense, lighting candles and listening to soft music playing in the background.

A few plans for the rest of the week... to get better, to create more Fall Nesting and to drink deeply of this time of year.

Here is a picture thought I am thinking..

A tree began to grow in our garden from a seed long ago discarded by previous owners. I left it alone for months, always promising myself that I would cut it down, but never having the heart to do it (how I love living things). Yesterday, my daughter came running in the house. "Mama, look what was growing on that tree in the vegetable garden?" In her hands she held one lone peach... A tiny peach tree is growing in our garden.

Thank Heaven for small, but very sweet miracles.

That incense sounds lovely. I've been thinking about trying those incense sticks I keep seeing everywhere...the ones that don't need to be burned.

Thanks for sharing your picture thoughts. :)

I have to do a lot of stretching. I seem to get muscle cramps and stiffness much more than I used to when I was younger. It does the trick though. More than exercise, the stretching seems to work the best.

Prayers offered up for you - God's blessings .:)
