Simple Woman's Day Book #1

That's me, a simple woman, with simple taste's, and a simple mind.

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the prayers that I know where sent up for me this past week. I greatly appreciate your love beyond measure. Things worked out after all and the medicine is here. I'm happy and I give God the glory "Great things He hath done ..."

Ok, this is my first attempt at filling out the Simple Woman's Day Book linky. I hope it's not too boring for my readers. *smile*

 Simple Womans Day Book


Outside my window: Bright sunshine. VERY hot. It hasn't rained here in almost three weeks. It's getting scary dry again.

I am thinking: About how concerned I am for our country. We're being invaded daily by Mexico and the President is aiding and abetting the enemy. They are not "children", by the way, but young teens infested with diseases being shipped, unescorted all over America under cover of darkness. An evil darkness sits in control of our government.

I am thankful: For so many things but I will put my laser like focus on that medical things seem to be straightening out. 

In the kitchen: I just finished cleaning up the supper dishes. Hubby created a real superb meal (he said I needed comfort food) of fried chicken, garlic gravy, ford hook lima's, and baked bread with real butter.

I am wearing: What is this? A crank call? *lol* Ok, plaid (duh) Bugle Boy shorts with a matching plain blue Icon T-shirt. and my favorite World Wide Sportsman flip flops

I am creating: A more organized, clutter-free home, I hope. We've been systematically working through every nook and cranny and deciding what to sell and what to throw out. Thanks to all this work, we now have an official pantry! It's big too. An entire room off the kitchen. All that is needed is more shelves.

I am going: Nowhere at the moment. Already ran my errands this morning; banking, grocery shopping and RiteAid for a few sundries. RiteAid was having a Buy One Get The Second Free soap sale so I stocked up.

I am wondering: What else I can sell to loosen up more room in the house.

I am reading: The Life of Elizabeth I by Alison Weir. I really enjoy Tudor History and just about anything English, especially related to the monarchy.

I am hoping: I sleep better tonight. I think I shall now.

I am looking forward to: Cooler weather, perhaps some rain, so we can ride again. I am seriously considering buying a more open helmet for hot weather but I so dislike having my chin 'out there' in case I take a tumble. 

I am learning: To be a little more patient, I hope, and trust the Lord more.

Around the house: Again, organizing, cleaning, utilizing our space more.

I am pondering: Hmmmm ... I'll have to get back to you on that.

A favorite quote for today: "Let your conversation by without covetousness, and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5

One of my favorite things:  No contest! Lindt 70% Dark Chocolate.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Auction is Friday evening in the neighboring town of Blackshear. I've kinda gotten hooked on these things. I even bought some of those little battery powered hand fans to keep myself cool. The boys, the Jack Russell Terriorists, will be one year old tomorrow. Where has the time gone!?

A peek into my day: This is what's in the garden. Well, at least the flowers are doing well after the Great Vegetable Massacre. *giggle*

Thanks for tagging along. Have a wonderful evening folks.

Glad that your med arrived. A number of blogging buddies have had medication woes...being shifted from one thing to another that required getting "used to" over many weeks. There certainly are many things to be concerned over these days.

So thankful for your meds.
Can't believe your pups are a year old. Wow!
Hot and dry here today too.
Would love to have rain all night long.
Good for you making room for a pantry. I would like to add shelves to a hall closet for a pantry. Keep us posted.
