From: The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...the darkness and relative quiet of 11:00 PM...a time I cherish in its peacefullness.

I am thinking...about what it will take to sleep without the interuptions of memories.

I am thankful...for my family's health and love.

In the kitchen...the dishes are washed and the floor awaits deep cleaning!

I am comfy plaid pajamas my mother-in-love gave me for Christmas.

I am creating...a memory on my blog page...then scarves for Special Olympics.

I am a reunion of the girls' chorus I was in in high school - hooray!

I am wondering...why some memories won't stay in the past.

I am reading...John Sanford's latest, Shock Wave.

I am mother-in-love's health improves.

I am looking forward to...may parents' birthday party in February (75 and 80)!

I am learning...patience...the hard way.

Around the house...I see a disaster zone which needs addressing desperately.

I am to keep up with the visits I need to make to the sick.

A favorite quote for today...‎"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own." —G.K. Chesterton

One of my favorite things...being alone in a quiet house.

A few plans for the rest of the week: My reunion, Weight Watchers meeting, doctors appts.

A peek into my day...get Isabella ready for school, get myself ready for the day, try to keep up.


  1. It makes me so happy to when all the dishes are washed and the floors are swept. Patience is something I am constantly working on too, but I am making progress and it feels good to not take things too seriously sometimes.

  2. Hopping over from Company Girl. Great post! I used to post Simple Woman's Daybook as well. I should do another one. Thanks for sharing! Beautiful picture.

  3. Hello from the Company Girl blog hop! I am currently in my Christmas pajamas as I type but alas, all the chore await too. However, today is my day to let the stress of it go and take a few minutes later to do one thing. No stress today :)

  4. Used to love doing the Daybook, haven't done it in a long while! Hope you have a great weekend! Blessings to you!

  5. I love a quiet house too! Best part of the day is just before everyone wakes up and I have my first cup of coffee on the couch.

  6. I am stopping by from Company Girls. I added you to a blog list on my blog so that I know when you update so that I can read more of your writing. I like this post style. I haven't seen it before. What is the Simple Woman's Daybook? I hope you'll stop by and visit me soon as well.

  7. Ah, a quiet house...wonderful luxury!

    I love reading a "Simple Woman's Daybook" posts. If I was a blogger I'd participate in that!

    Hope you have a blessed week!

  8. I also love being alone in my quiet long as my doggie is with me :)

  9. Hope you are keeping warm ((hugs)) to you my friend.

  10. Hi Gail, Loved reading your daybook entry!
