A Simple Woman's Daybook, March 15th, 2011

FOR TODAY March 16th, 20100...

Outside My Window...Cloudy and overcast.  There is a lot of snow on the mountains, but it is warmer in the valley and on the foothills (benches).  We are expecting rain.

I am thinking...  I add my prayers to all those from around the world for the poor people who are being directly affected by the tragedy in Japan.  Help to those in need, comfort for the grieving, food and shelter for the homeless, purpose for those who can give aide, hope where there is none...all blessings for which I pray

I am thankful for...everything in my life.  The more news coverage that I watch about the unfolding events in Japan, the more that I am grateful for a warm home, plenty of food to eat, and o, so many other things.  We live amongst so much abundane that we don't fully realize how fortunate we are.  We are no longer aware of how much we have because we are surrounded by it all the time.  We live in the most abundant time in history and we have lost perspective on how rare in the overall scheme of history this is.

From the learning rooms...(if this applies)

From the kitchen...Amish Friendship Bread...Salmon Patties...Fried Okra...Lima Beans for tonight

I am wearing...

A lovely apron that I was able to pick up for a song on ebay.  Makes me feel very feminine!

I am creating...A softly decorated home Spring ...only 4 more days...
I am reading...The Backyard Homestead...lots of ideas!

I am hoping...for warmer weather...:)

I am hearing...soft instrumentals which help calm me and focus my efforts throughout the day.

Around the house...it is very quiet..but a little disordered.  I need to get up and get going!

One of my favorite things...creating a beautiful table setting for supper, so that my little family can feel that this time together every evening is set apart and special.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

St. Paddy's Day dinner tomorrow night with music provided by the Irish Tenors Dublin Concert.  More decorating and Spring Cleaning.  Some time alone with hubby at the end of the week.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Wish hats would come back in style.

Have a great day!


What I Did Today said...

That apron is soooooooooooooooo cute!!!! And I'm going to have to look up the Backyard Homestead. Sounds like something I'd be interested in. And hats can be in style. I have a friend who has loved the Victorian era and Anne of Green Gables her whole life. She's worn elaborate hats the whole 15 years that I've known her. :)

Hey Elizabeth, I adore that apron also! I love hats and wear them if they are in or out of fashion. Thanks for dropping by blog! xxx

That apron is so pretty! I got some nice items at a thrift today. It was so nice to get out after having been cooped up sick. The weather here is really warming up. :)
