The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window ...
is a world of white, snow has fallen and everything looks lovely.

I am thinking ...
how cold I am as I had a whopping gas bill and I've turned the heating low

I am thankful for ...
knowing a wonderful Saviour and part of a loving family

From the learning rooms ...
The Lord supplies and meets my every need - even getting me a vacuum cleaner

From the kitchen ...
the washing machine needs emptying

I am wearing ...
jeans, two jumpers, two pair of socks - I look frightful but hey it's a cold day

I am creating ...
an enamelled necklace

I am going ...
to go and make a cup of tea which might just warm me up

I am reading ...
and being blessed in Ephesians

I am hoping ...
we have more snow and school is closed tomorrow

I am hearing ... my stomach telling me it is past lunch

Around the house ...
the curtain pole fell down this morning and my vacuum cleaner blew up but praise God my friend Ri has a spare vac that she said I can have

One of my favorite things ... being around my 2 adorable grandsons

A few plans for the rest of the week ... Babysitting figures largely in the plans, school is back tomorrow after being closed due to snow

Here is picture thought I am sharing... (some of my lovely family - taken at my mam's 80th birthday party made more special because my youngest sister flew over from America)


  1. Hiya Sis, so glad you started this, it sure is fun to read each week :-) Are you going to add one of those pretty blog themes like on your craft page? I need to go do my simple daybook today too.
    Have a lovely week. Thinking of you.

  2. Hi Jean! I'm Denise's Canadian buddy, and just wanted to come meet my "sister's" Sister!!

    I bet it is cold where you are. Do you get a lot of snow? We are having another snowy year here in Toronto.

    God bless your reading. I enjoy Ephesians too!!

    Hugs xo
