Anyday but Monday

I think Simply Jean is going to just be an any day post as I never seem able to get something done on Mondays so for Thursday

Outside my window: it is overcast with a light drizzle, so different after yesterdays beautiful sunshine.
From the learning rooms: Well that an 84 year old mam can still teach a daughter how to make pastry. When I visited mam we baked pies for my son but I wasn't rolling the pastry correctly, mam said 'roll away from you then turn' I was just rolling back and forth a few times before turning. Never too old to learn something new.

I am thankful for: answered prayer, for my family. I love spending time with them and it was great going to spend 2 weeks in my home town and seeing everyone.

From the kitchen: nothing today but I am definitely considering baking again as I don't do baking but I made biscuits for my grandchildren when I was at mams so look out kitchen here I come.

I am reading: Several books at the moment one on prayer and the other on the pentecostal blessing, also the book of Revelation which I love reading.

I am creating: space - yes space, I am going to have a good sort out and get rid of everything I don't need as I am surrounded by clutter ...
Around the house: De clutter - which goes along with the creating space.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Babysitting tonight as it's Marc and Sams 7th wedding anniversary. Silver Art clay workshop with a friend on Friday. A weekend of just relaxing as I am shattered after a day out with 3 grandchildren all on my own but we had a great time and it was worth the being shattered.

A picture thought I am sharing: I thought I'd share another family pic with you. Again this one was taken last year at the beach when I visited mam and the family but as I've just come back from sharing another 2 weeks up there and didn't take any pics I decided to show you this one of my sister Brenda, brother Michael and Mam and me ofcourse. Believe it or not the dolphin was a rubbish bin - don't ask me why we were taken by a rubbish bin!!!!


  1. Yoo hoo, it's me again :) I like when you blog then I feel like we just chatted and I caught up with what you're doing. I wish our Brenda would blog too but we know that will never happen!
    I'm still in my jimjams having another lazy morning. Soon it will be over and I'll be getting up at 6am every day to take Kristen to school! Love ya sis, enjoy your weekend.

  2. Love your blog!

    I would love to get your comments and perspective on some of my recent entries. Feel free to stop by when you have a little time!

    God bless!
