Simple Woman's Daybook , June 1, 2010


Outside my window...
Well, on my porch since this is where I am sitting it is beautiful. A frog is talking, the birds are singing, it rained and the squirrals are bouncing from branch to branch and dropping water droplets everywhere. It makes it sound like it is raining all over again.
I am thinking...
Of how happy I am, my hubby is home. he was in Florida over the weekend from Thurs to Sun and I didn't sleep a wink.

I am thankful for...
 The knowledge I have of the plan of salvation and temple work and the comfort it brings to me.

From the learning rooms..
School is out for a few weeks at least. I have been working on summer school schedules and we have been planning what needs to be worked on etc.

From the kitchen...
Nothing to exciting
Yesterday, I cooked up the first squash of the season it came in last week and I just got around to cooking it. Our garden is slow at taking off this year. It might be because of the rabbit eating the beans, or the fact I tried something someone else suggested and it didn't work so I went back to what worked for me and everything is doing much better.

I am wearing...
My long tiered demin skirt, a grey t-shirt with my hair pulled back, and my pink outside shoes since I am outside on the porch.

I am creating...
hmmmm.... Nothing comes to mind a skirt still on the sewing table needs to be sewn, Yguy needs a new rob his is from when he was 7 and he has definately outgrown it.

I am going...
To one of our local food pantrys to volunteer today.
I am reading...
Proverbs 31 and I am letting my mind slip away into a science fiction book that I Love and haven't read in awhile. The White Dragon by Anne Mccaffrey I love her Dragonriders of Pern books
I am hoping...
We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.

I am hearing...
Birds lots of birds
Around the house...
fur, unfortunately hubbies dog is shedding and I am vacuuming it up daily
One of my favorite things...
Learning and broading my mind....narrow mindedness is the lack of knowledge
A few plans for the rest of the week:
volunteering today and friday, start shopping for girls camp kitchen supplies, youth, gardening...

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
here is a picture of some flowers our neighbor gave me not long after we moved in 4 years ago and I have not a clue what it is. But is is so prolific, it seeds its self but the original plant is still there and comes back bigger every year. It blooms profusely and after the flowers die off there is a black seed where the bloom was. The flowers close up at night and open when the sun is on them. Does anyone know what this is called?


  1. I like to visit a few of the daybooks near mine on the Mr. Linky. Yours was just 2 under mine.

    Great Daybook.
    I love the verses you shared and your "thankful for..." salvation is such a wonderful gift.

    I was great to get to "know you" through your daybook.

  2. Sounds like your home is a comforting place to be. What a blessing!

    Enjoyed your daybook. Have a wonderful week.

  3. Thanks for sharing your daybook with us. It's so fun to peek into other people's lives, isn't it? Your picture is beautiful...but no idea what it is, sorry. Glad hubby is home safe and sound. Have a great week!
