The Simple Woman's Daybook

For September 20, 2010

Outside my window…a beautiful blue sky, no clouds, about 80 degrees. Just a few more days left of summer.

I am thankful…for being able to stay home to care for my husband and children.

From the learning rooms…study, study, study! We are now in full swing so the books are always open!

From the kitchen...leftovers

I am creating…working on a lap blanket for Julianne; napkins are finished and they turned out well.

I am reading…starting “Humility” with our Fellowship Group.

Scripture for the week: “But He gives more grace…..” (James 4:6a); what a wonderful phrase! It just doesn’t get any better than that!!!

I am hearing…not much; it’s very quiet at our house.

Noticing that…the trees have lost their lustre and some leaves are starting to fall.

Around the house...trying to keep all my garden plants alive; we are in a drought and now we have water restrictions. I can only water on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. I can water my plants in pots on other days if I use a watering can.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Co-op on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday; home the rest of the days. Saturday our fellowship group meets here.

Here is a picture I’m sharing.….this is a marker for a trail named after my dad.

I love that scripture! I will take all the grace I can get!

How neat that a trail is named after your dad, and what an appropriate quote!

It is a blessing to be able to stay home with your family.

How did your dad get a trail named for him? My dad has his name inscribed on a brick on a clocktower in our hometown. I'll have to ask my mom what that was all about, can't remember...
Have a grace-filled day!
