The Simple Woman’s Daybook –July 19, 2011



TODAY is July 19, 2011


Outside my window…since it is 10:05pm, it’s dark , but there is a big moon, not full, and stars


I am thinking…about a line from Walking through the Valley of Vision, the book of puritan  prayers, “May I view all things in the mirror of eternity”

I am thankful for…The Delta breezes of the Sacramento Valley

From my learning rooms…I’m trying to learn to use my time wiser so I can get done the many things I want to do.

From the kitchen…hash browns with bell peppers and red onions and scrambled eggs from the pullets and bantys for dinner

I am wearing…brown skirt and a brown and beige paisley t-shirt

I am creating…starting the 5th project of the Kaye England’s bread & butter society, it’s a log cabin quilt. I’m mostly using 1800’s fabrics from my stash

I am going…to get blood drawn tomorrow for my check up next week,

I am reading…The Scarlatti Inheritance, an early Robert Ludlum

I am hoping…our veggie stand does really well this year. Tuesdays and Saturdays, it’s my picture today.

I am hearing…the roar of the floor fan and not much else

Around the house…the laundry has piled up-do tomorrow

One of my favorite things…watching ocean waves crash on the rocks, I have a favorite spot at Pacific Grove, CA near Monterrey

A few plans for the rest of the week:the laundry, a little cleaning, some knitting and building log cabin blocks

Here is picture I am sharing…


left–Saturday at the street              right —  Tuesday at church

Scripture to go with what I’m thinking  —  Col 3:1-2 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

Join Simple Woman’s Daybook and me to pause and reflect on Tuesdays
