Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today

Outside my window ... The sky is partly cloudy. Perhaps we'll get some light showers today.

I am thinking ... How much I enjoy hearing the birds every morning. One of the first things I hear after the neighbor starts his truck (vroom, vroom) and leaves for work. Blessed birds!

I am thankful for ... Another beautiful day on Mother Earth

From the Kitchen ... I have delicious strawberries from the Farmers Market. I think a strawberry cobbler is in order!

I am wearing ... Gray shorts, a gray Austin City Limits T-shirt, no shoes.

I am reading ... one of my favorite series ... set in Tibet ... Beautiful Ghosts by Eliot Pattison.

I am hoping ... to work on a knit shawl.

I am creating ... a journal page as prep for a new mixed media canvas on cats!

I am praying ... for Coy. He has a viral infection. Carol ... as she undergoes a procedure this morning.

Around the house ... all is quiet! I have the urge to clean out cabinets again!

One of my favorite things ... my cup of tea in the morning. This morning Jasmine Green Tea.

A few plans for the rest of the week ... Rice baseball starts again after a week off for finals, make dental appointments, read. It's nice to be retired. There is a lot to be said for slow motion! Dance and sing!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you ...

Isn't waking up to the birds just one of the best sounds ever? I just love it! And those strawberries are sounding pretty tasty right now.:)

Thanks for visiting me ... enjoyed your Simple Woman's and I practice paying it forward, too! I'm from Amarillo but live in the deep south now. Austin City Limits has always been a fav of hours ... I like meeting bloggers who share common interests!

God bless,

What a wonderful post. I can almost see you in your shorts snitching a strawberry, while drinking your yummy tea and enjoying the birds. You really are at peace. I was looking at your weather pixie, she looks happier than mine. Although today the sun is shining and I am heading to the garden to plant azaleas, then back to my stitching. But first to Simple Woman's. Toodles Sharon

Listening to the birds singing is one of my most favorite things in the whole world! And I like the idea of The Simple Woman's Daybook. One of these days maybe I'll give it a try.
