Daybook For Thursday, May 15, 2008

The Simple Woman's Daybook project intrigues me. I have always been interested in what people are thinking about the small things in life. Everybody talks about the big things that happen in life but rarely do we mention the simple every day things that happen along the way, but none the less change our journey each and every day. The instructions were to post our journal entry on Monday but I am going to take the liberty of posting today, Thursday! I've been a busy girl!! Here goes:

Outside My Window...the birds are singing, the sun is shining, someone is cutting their grass and creating the most wonderful smell, a sweet mother bird is creating her nest in the lilac tree outside my guest room window!

I am thinking...about my boy, who has recently flown my nest.

I am thankful for...God, who demonstrates every second of every day that He is in control.

From the kitchen...a giant pitcher of iced tea awaits, of which I intend to drink every drop!

I am wearing...jeans, white tea shirt, my favorite lime green jacket, and my ultra comfy Skechers.

I am creating...a room fit for all the future guests I love and hope will visit again and again!

I am going...to make a new memory today with my 4 year old granddaughter, planting flowers.

I am reading...Home To Holly Springs by Jan Karon

I am hoping...to have a clean house in a week!!

I am hearing...my husband coming home.

Around the house...signs of my family are everywhere.

One of my favorite things...lilacs, which I smell from every window.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I intend to finish my guest room, clean up the mess from the decorating and my son's moving, plant all my gardens, get back to blogging!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing..


I am missing my parents today. This picture was taken the last time I visited them in Tennessee. It is reminiscent of the mountain home of my heart. The mountains, the streams, the wild flowers - the beauty is incomparable.
