The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...(my first one, so bear with me)

Outside my window... the horses are eating my blackberry blossoms and I'm trying not to mind

I am thinking... that it's nice to have a weekend with no work (from work) that has to be done.

From the learning rooms... We don't homeschool, but we are learning about sunflowers and bees via The Great Sunflower Project

I am thankful for... the date I had with my husband last night.  He's a fun guy to hang out with!

From the kitchen... salads with fresh greens and banana-almond butter muffins

I am wearing... jeans and predictable.

I am reading... Eve's Daughters, with my book club

I am hoping... to finish working in the front yard this weekend

I am creating... a knitted and needle felted garden for the summer nature table

I am praying... for a good finish to the school year for the kids.

Around the house... working outside, trying to decide about some outdoor furniture

One of my favorite things... lazy Saturday morning veggie omelets with Paul and Finn

A few plans for the rest of the week... going to visit my grandmother this evening.  I haven't seen her in too long.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

It's a Finn-only weekend.  He makes me smile a million times a day, and I'm glad to focus on him for a few days.


  1. Sounds like a lovely weekend!
    You've got horses? Wonderful.

  2. That great flower sunflower project sounds interesting.... haven't checked it out but would like to.

    Everything else sounds lovely... like your pictures too. Joyful is what comes to my mind. )

  3. Your blog truly matches your name, you know???

  4. Beautiful. What is this "simple woman's daybook"-- do you do this formula every week/day?

  5. I love having time with each of my kids one on one. How nice that you get these special weekends with Finn.

  6. Your life seems "full" of good.
