The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...dead leaves hanging and falling from trees

I am thinking...about breakfast

I am thankful...for today

From the learning rooms...developing academic independence 

In the kitchen...clean dishes in the dishwasher

I am wearing... a hoodie, jeans, slippers

I am creating...this blog post

I am going...to de-clutter downstairs

I am wondering...how long will it take(:

I am reading..."Safe Haven" by Nicholas Sparks!! 

I am hoping...to finish it today.

I am looking forward to...Christmas(:

I am hearing...the spin cycle on the washing machine

Around the house...I'm still putting up Christmas decorations

I am pondering...what life has in store for me and my family

One of my favorite things...quiet

A few plans for the rest of the week: shopping and wrapping gifts

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Gertha and Bertha!!! --- My sister and her family are in Germany.  It's hard during the holidays; I miss her much:(
  In this photo, we hadn't seen each other in three years!!!  (taken Aug. 2010)


  1. Hey Gertha . . .

    Things seem peaceful around your home. Have fun shopping and wrapping presents!!!!
    Have a very Merry Christmas!!!!

    (PS. Nice pic of you and your sis!)

  2. It was peaceful at that moment and I thank God for those times(: Thank you for the compliment!! I miss her dearly. You have a Merry Christmas as well and a Prosperous New Year!!!!

  3. I know how hard it is to be away from family. It had been two years since I had seen our son when he came home this Christmas. Hope you get to see your sister soon! Blessings!
