Simple Woman's Daybook

The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...another hot, humid day in the great Atlantic northeast. Everything is green.

I am thinking...about how tricky it is to grandparent/parent a child with autism.

I am thankful...for being rid of all my junk - moving was the perfect opportunity.

In the kitchen...the stove is cold but needs some cooking to be done.

I am wearing...olive green capris and a coral top.

I am creating...a vacation in my mind.

I am stay home the rest of the day.

I am wondering...if it will be possible to take a vacation. It has been several years since the last one.

I am Bible and the newest Glenn Beck book.

I am hoping...for relief.

I am looking forward parents' visit next week.

I am praise God through the storms as well as the good times.

Around the house...except for my son's room, all is pretty neat and clean.

I am I got to where I am today. Oh, those past decisions.

A favorite quote for today..."Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my God and my Redeemer."

One of my favorite things...sleeping a bad mood away.

A few plans for the rest of the week: a possible bbq for the fourth of July, sleeping in a couple of days

A peek into my day...not really but I like the picture!


  1. I enjoyed this so much Gail and this photo is just beautiful.
    Your quote and script is one I know so well. I got it passed by mouth from my Mom.
    Sending you hugs..

  2. enjoyed your daybook :)

  3. I have a nephew that has aspberger's along with ADHD and a mood disorder.. He never got the help he needed when younger which is sad. He is 19 and said something a couple weeks ago about spending the night here with my daughter. He can be a lot to deal with and sadly my husband and myself are not sure we are up to the task.
    Getting rid of stuff feels really good.

    1. Ruth, it is okay to say no. It is hard to know how to handle things without the proper training. Sorry he didn't get the help early on. It is so important.

  4. I know what you mean about past decisions. I turned 50 this year and have been doing some looking back. Sweet picture of your little girl.

    1. Kara, I am 56 and have many regrets but need to learn to live in the present looking toward the future. That little sweetie is my granddaughter, Isabella!

  5. Hi Gail,

    Like your quote and your favourite thing. God Bless

  6. Great to see you back in this space Gail. Your positive attitude always lifts me up. I've had tons of company and tons of fun. Most left yesterday and today was the HUGE clean up. Feels good to have an organized house again, but I'd trade it to have my family back :)

  7. I know how much you love your family, Marie.

  8. I really enjoyed reading this post. We have a lot in common. I felt, a little, like I was reading one of my own posts.
