Simple Woman's Daybook 4/12/10


Outside my window... Cloudy and a little bit hazy, but very mild - probably about 66 degrees on my outside thermometer right now.  We need some warm weather!

I am thinking... Weddings?!

I am thankful for... The Gospel . . . the blessings are amazing, prayers are answered, lives are changed.

From the learning rooms... I'm learning to never try to out-guess myself!

From the kitchen... Beef stew for dinner.  Doesn't that sound so good?  I think I will just let it simmer all day while I do some housework.

I am wearing... Jeans and a navy blue long sleeved t-shirt . . . no shoes!  

I am creating... Well, I just made laundry soap - that's creating!

I am going... To get ready to go camping for a week.  I know it is early, but we have a wedding anniversary on the 19th, so my husband is taking the week off, and we are going camping!!  I want to go to this really quaint, small,  RV park, next to the most beautiful little golf course.  I like to golf, but I'm not very good at it, and I'm slow - so this would be perfect!!

I am reading... My scriptures, and, Faith of our Fathers, by N.C. Allen.  It's a beautiful story set during the Civil War. 
I am hoping... That the weather holds out for next week - I don't want to go camping in the rain!  We have an RV, but it's just no fun to be stranded in the rain!

I am hearing... Peaceful music on my computer and a ticking clock.

Around the house... There is so much that needs to be done!  I need to change my bed, do laundry, make laundry soap . . . you know, just general cleaning that got neglected over the week-end.  We did a lot of yard work, so nothing got accomplished inside!

One of my favorite things... Is waking up to birds singing in the trees!  I love to hear the birds, better than any alarm clock!

A few plans for the rest of the week:

Today - Cleaning and puttering, helping with a quilt - maybe, if I find the time!
Tomorrow - An eye appointment at 9:50, then lunch with mom and sis!
Wednesday - I think I will get the trailer ready to go, plan a menu, make sure all my ducks are in a row!
Thursday - My girls are coming to see me!!!  We will go to lunch, do a little shopping, play with the kids, just hang out and talk about weddings?
Friday - Getting ready for a week of fun!

Here is video that I want to share . . .

Warm Blessings and Hugs,

I love to hear about what you are doing. I think we all have weddings on our minds. I know it will all turn out how it is supposed to.

I so enjoy your blog. I love hearing your thoughts on your day. I think this is such a great way to journal. I did hear there may be a wedding. Have a great day with your girls. I wish I lived closer and we could have such a great time. Have fun on your RV trip.
Love Ya! LeAnn
