The Simple Woman’s Daybook for 2-23-09

FOR TODAY FEBRUARY 23, 2009
Outside my window…
“Blue skies smilin’ at me.   Nothin’ but blue skies do I see.”

I am thinking…
“May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart’s testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.”

I am thankful for…
“the God on the mountain is still God in the valley
When things go wrong He’ll make them right
And the God of the good times
is still God in the bad times
The God of the day is still God in the night”
~Tracy G. Dartt

From the learning rooms…
we are learning patience for a restored health to return to a young body.

From the kitchen…
salmon cakes, steamed vegetables, baked potatoes

I am wearing…
a jean skirt, blue top

I am creating…
articles, blog posts, for sale ads

I am going…
to the library but I’d rather stay home.

I am reading…
“how to” articles.

I am hoping…
for a better week health-wise, that the washer can be fixed, and for good news all around.

I am hearing…
Keith & Kristyn Getty

Around the house…
Housework – and lots of it!
My second favorite household chore is ironing.  My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.  ~Erma Bombeck

One of my favorite things…
 “honest open smiles,
kisses from a child,
tomatoes on the vine,”
and Tom T Hall 

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Pancake Day, Sewing Class, and Church

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

clock-before

Hideous Indoor/Outdoor Clock the my dear husband insisted on putting in the great room.  I believe that homes should reflect the personality of all the individuals living in it and that husbands have every right to some prime locations and not just be banished to the den or the garage.  However, I also knew that my handsome man wouldn’t mind a bit if I gave her a much needed makeover…

The reveal!

clock-after

Hideous no more!  I washed her face with a bit of leftover craft paint and created something with which both my honey and I can live.

  1. Enjoyed the quotes in your daybook. Like the clock make-over.

  2. I love the ironing quote – if I didn’t think it would make for a bad example for our daughter I just might stitch it into a sampler! Cute clock makeover! I enjoyed your daybook!
