The Simple Woman's Daybook - September



FOR TODAY
Monday September 30, 2013

Outside my window...
are lots of huge mushrooms that popped up after the wonderful rain we got over the weekend.  HOW do they just grow overnight like that??  One day they're not there, the next day they are.  Amazing.


I am thinking...
that I certainly waited until the last minute to do this month's daybook. ;-)

I am thankful...
for the rain, my crazy kids, a husband that always knows just what to do and say to keep me happy, and a job I love.

In the kitchen...
I made maple scones over the weekend and I have a bag of granny smith apples and some jalapeƱos that I am planning to turn into apple jalapeƱo jam sometime this week.


I am wearing...
what I wore to work today - white blouse, denim jacket, brown skirt and brown flip flops.

I am creating...
a knitted baby blanket and trying my hand at some knitted baby booties.

I am going...
to our ranch this weekend!  Yay!

I am wondering...
how in the world my baby is turning 14 this week?

I am reading...
my daughter's FFA magazine and catalogs.

I am hoping...
that Loretta will sit on her fertilized eggs long enough to hatch one!

I am looking forward to...
celebrating my son's birthday this weekend at the ranch.

I am learning...
more about how to do my new job efficiently.

Around the house...
my son is working on his homework, my daughter is in the shower, my husband is exercising, and I am counting the minutes until bedtime.  It was a long Monday!

I am pondering...
if 8:30 is too early for bed? ;-)

A favorite quote for today...
"Everyone smiles in the same language."

One of my favorite things...
is a cool, crisp autumn morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
To do my best. :-)

A peek into my day...



Chupa seconds before she fell backwards off this stool.
It was funny and she somehow landed on her feet. :-)

Monday's are always long! :) We take that evening to unwind from starting our week. Happy Birthday to the birthday Man! I only wish I could knit! Hope you have a great time at the Ranch.
