The Simple Woman’s Daybook

I’ve enjoyed reading the posts in this meme at The Simple Woman and visiting their lovely days. It helps to remember the simple joys of daily living.


Outside my window…2 morning doves waddling below the bird feeder, tulips bursting with color, a cardinal in the tree teasing my cat

I am thinking…that I will enjoy the evening away from my computer

I am thankful for…my husband’s hard work, my son’s humor and my daughter’s creativity

From the kitchen…fresh strawberries and blueberries, sautéed asparagus with lemon and homemade chicken and rice crockpot soup

I am creating…a new simplicity course

I am going…to the Tulip Time parade

I am wearing…green gray jeans, a pinkish shirt with 3/4 sleeves, a green, pink and gold bracelet, and a moss green scarf because it was a bit chilly walking today

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

I am hoping…for another day of blue skies and an evening of rain

I am hearing…my computer fan, my teenager’s music

Around the house…is a bag of clothes for Goodwill, a bag of food for the post office food drive Saturday and a picture my daughter says needs to be updated

One of my favorite things…is walking on the beach

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…2 Tulip Time parades, showing my son how to do a budget, continuing my Spending Fast and chatting with my daughter

Here is a picture thought I am sharing for you…
