Simple Woman's Daybook Entry

Outside my window...Is a beautiful spring day. Gentle breeze, blue sky with a few puffy white clouds, birds chirping. I am soo enjoying this right now as we have had some gloomy, raining days this week.

I am thinking....about all the sewing projects I am working on. I just finished another set of a receiving blanket and nightie. Yesterday, I found a fabric store that carried the bumper pad inserts I was looking for and 40% off as well! But I found ANOTHER piece of flannel fabric I couldn’t resist as well, so looks like little Sam will have yet another receiving blanket and nightie, haha…Soo cute. I will show pics soon I promise.

I am thankful for….soo many things. I am thankful Mel came for a couple of days, though I am missing her right now. I am thankful I didn’t gain a single pound with my road trip last week-end…I tried REALLY hard, lol. I am thankful for my husband who is truly my best friend and spoils me rotten. ; )

From the kitchen....not much going on out there but the whir of the dish washer

I am wearing….. old jeans (that are getting kind of baggy!) and a purple knit top.

I am creating....lots of baby items….see above. : )

I am my parents tonight for our weekly card game. We are still behind a game mom!

I am reading….not much other than my Bible recently. I need something new. Plus I have been spending a lot of time reading up on different ideas and ways of making baby nursery items online.

I am have a relaxing week-end. Seems like we have been soo busy recently.

I am hearing...the whir of the dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Oh, and the birds singing outside my window. I wish I knew the kinds of birds around here, or really any for that matter. I also have some elevator music (as my kids call it, haha) playing in the background. And now, I am hearing a lawn mower from a nearby neighbor. I love that sound!

Around the house....nothing going on out of the ordinary for a Friday.

One of my favorite things….is time spent with grandkids…I am needing a visit with some this week-end.

A few plans for the rest of the week....just a quiet weekend at home.

Here are some pictures for thought....Are they the cutest things you ever saw or what???

JD & them so!

Hope you all have a wonderful week-end!
