The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Jan 11... yes it is a little early but I wont have time tomorrow

Outside my window... is a COLD and windy night

I am thinking... of reminding myself to stay thankful even though what I am thankful for is wearing me out! (home renovations)

I am thankful for... the BEAUTIFUL door I found on Craigslist for $10!!!!!

From the kitchen... nothing is brewing... our entire downstairs is upside down with paint and putty!

I am wearing... yoga pants Nursing tank and a cumphy t-shirt

I am creating... so many wonderful things in my head while I reputty the ceiling in my licing room! I have designed my new porch set up, a table, some planters, and some really adorable decorations for Lesley's First Birthday Party which will be in less than 2 months... ( I can't believe it)

I am going... to try and get caught up on laundry before bed

I am reading... a new food and wine magazine

I am hoping... to get SO much accomplished before my birthday party this friday. I have to cook all day Friday!

I am hearing... Lesley "talking" and trying to figure out the dog kennels....

Around the house... its chaos hence why I keep escaping in my mind to design other things

One of my favorite things... this may sounf terrible, but Lesley was SO tired earlier and was balling, something she almost never does, but it sounded like her little baby cry... I realized how much I loved that little cry and how I miss it! I have such a big girl now!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Finish reputtying, touch up paint on one wall (missed a spot or two), measure for crown molding, repaint bathroom, hang beadboard, paint it, clean and organize my "craftroom", LAUNDRY!!!, and cook for my birthday party. HOW I AM GOING TO BE BUSY!!!

Here is picture thought I am sharing... Lesley enjoying blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries for the first time! I love that she looks like a T-rex that has just eatin though!! LOL Thank God for his amazing blessings!!!


  1. Glad I'm not the only one who creates beautiful things in my head whilst dealing with the not so beautiful practical realities of life.

    Your dd looks gorgeous - and you are so right, the time whooshes past you.

  2. Ha! if I only had a tenth of the beauties I have created in my head done... what a treasure trove m home would be. Great daybook.

  3. Awww too cute! You are going to be busy! GL!
