The Simple Woman’s Daybook

I love peeking into the lives of other people.  The Simple Woman shares other people’s daybooks, like my day below. It helps to remember the simple joys of daily living. You can join us too.


Outside my window…sunshine, two trees are flowering

I am thinking…different parenting methods for my 15 year old son

I am thankful for…serving communion for the first time on Sunday, a great discussion with friend’s last night

From the kitchen…Rice Krispies Treats

I am creating…an atmosphere of peace and joy

I am going…to be productive today

I am wearing…red bandana skirt, white button down shirt, red dangly earrings

I am reading…The ZooKeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman

I am hoping…my 13 year old daughter has fun in Mackinac with her class this week

I am hearing…the cat jingle jangling

Around the house…piano bench needs to be cleaned off, my son and I did a ton of dishes yesterday after a weekend of cooking

One of my favorite things…taking hikes in the woods

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…a new Bible study, a friend’s birthday to celebrate, a Kid’s Hope party at Crazy Bounce and the nature center on Sat

Here is a picture thought I am sharing for you…


to be able to rest like a cat…
