Simple Woman's Daybook , October 26, 2010

Outside My Window.....it is gray and glooming, a lite breeze, and very humid. We just took the dogs for a walk and all that keeps it from being down right uncomfortable is the breeze

I am thinking....of all the things I must do today we took last week off from school for a little fall break and this week it is back to the books.

I am thankful for...the blessings I have, though at time I feel I have none, I know I am abundantly rich in what I have been given.

From the kitchen...Apple butter, tonight is meatless night and thinking of something yummy to make.

I am wearing...right now my sleeping clothes but will be in a green skirt and muslim blouse soon. All homemade with an apron.

I am creating....I am trying to create things to sell on etsy

I am going....walking with my daughter this morning to do our mile walk.

I am reading....school books

I am hoping....our neighbors well is fixed today and that it isn't bad at all something simple. They came over and filled pots and buckets with water last night and we gave them 2 cases of our hurricane drinking water. I'm glad we were able to help them some. And that our son's dog, Flower, gets better soon she has hurt her leg, she didn't even want to go on her morning walk.

I am hearing....
the stillness of the house.

Around the house...Ashley is working on seminary work, I am planning the day out, fabric calling my name to make it into something fun...

Here is a picture thought:

Wonderful creation all around us, we just need to take the time to look.


  1. Oh Erika, these pictures are just beautiful.

    Your muslin blouse, is it like the one that you have on your sidebar. I really like that style.

    My dear friend, it is always such a joy to read your words...but this medium can never replace the joy I feel when I receive your letters. :)


  2. Maria,

    Yes, the blouse is the the one on the sidebar. The pattern is Simplicity 3835. Very simple and easy to make. I have several I have made and have plans to make more.

    I love getting letters as well it makes it so much more personable and enjoyable. So much more can be shared and expressed.

    Have a wonderful day
