Monday: The Simple Woman's Daybook


~~Outside my window~~

the sun is shining brightly but there is still a chill in the air.

~~I am thinking~~

of how I long for spring and spring flowers.

~~I am thankful for~~

no snow or ice storms. My in-laws live in Cincinnati and I have heard all about the snow, ice, snow, ice...ugh. We have only had a few "snow-flurry" storms, :) never leaving us with more than an inch or two of snow at a time which quickly melts away within a day or so. However, we have had our share of windchills below 0. **AND** I am thankful for friends I have met online like dear Jan at Rose Haven. I won a teacup from her giveaway last week (see post from Friday). How delightful! I will cherish it fondly.

~~From the kitchen~~

I smell coffee brewing and english muffins toasting. Getting ready to scramble egg (beaters--allergic to egg yolks). I think we will have baked salmon on cedar for dinner with pasta and fresh veggies.

~~I am wearing~~
my favorite sky blue top with little navy flowers, navy pants.

~~I am creating~~

yet another punchneedle pinkeep for our craft business :) and a menu for the rest of the week--life really would be easier if I would plan more often.

~~I am going~~
to work very soon...I am just happy/grateful/blessed to have a job in this economy.

~~I am reading~~
Having a Mary Spirit: Alowing God to change us from the inside out
by Joanna Weaver.

~~I am hoping~~
for an early spring and good weather. I love and adore daffodils. They remind me of my grandmother in the spring. She always had tons of them in her yard and brought them in for vases in the house. It was always so cheery.

~~I am hearing~~

music in the background, coffee brewing, my tea kettle humming, the washer filling.

~~Around the house~~

I need to dust & vacuum! And so many other things. But we spent Saturday working at the other house...still hoping to get moved this spring.

~~One of my favorite things~~

hot tea. ALWAYS. :) Although I enjoy herbal tea, I am a black tea lover. Sometimes with lemon, sometimes not. Just plain today.

~~A few plans for the rest of the week~~

finish this pinkeep and add some things to our eBay shop; plan a Valentine dinner with my DH; Wednesday night bible study at church; dentist appt on Thursday.

~~Here is picture thought I am sharing~~

I love vintage images & especially vintage Valetines...
