The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY (Monday, March 30, 2009)

Outside my is dark and all is quiet before the sun rises to wake the sleepy world.

I am thinking...that I would like to stay home and have a quiet, simple day, puttering around my house and yard, but I will get myself to work and make it a productive day.

I am thankful for...these quiet early morning moments when I can collect my thoughts and prepare myself for the day ahead.

From the learning rooms...I'm excited about the software I'm learning at work and the new forms and feature we'll be rolling out to the Firm this week.

From the kitchen...two brown sugar cinnamon poptarts and a glass of milk.

I am wearing...grey slacks and a grey sweater. Hey, monochrome is slenderizing! Besides, I love the color.

I am creating...a feature at work to honor and bring notice to LAAs.

I am bring Devi in to the vet tonight to have her stitches removed.

I am reading...two books, Poltergeist by Kat Richardson, and The Right to Write by Julia Cameron.

I am hoping...that I find some missing documents at work today.

I am hearing...the kittens munching their breakfast and the clock ticking, telling me I need to shut down the laptop.

Around the house...the dishes need to be done and the folded laundry on the dining room table needs to be put away.

One of my favorite things...the stillness of early morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Clean house, sew some patches on my son's jacket, pay bills, and have family night.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Last year's peonies from the bushes on the east side of my house.

I'm looking forward to this year's beautiful blooms.

  2. It was nice to find you via The Simple Woman! Your peonies are beautiful - I hope they do well this year. Take care and have a happy week!!

  3. I love the early morning stillness also. I am almost always up at the crack of dawn. I love to hear the birds wake up and see the sky get lighter...and I like that all the kids and Mr. Hip are quiet as well.


Thank you for your comments. They certainly brighten my day!
