The Simple Woman's Daybook

I am participating in The Simple Woman’s Daybook, hosted by Peggy at The Simple Woman. It is a great way to start off the week! Stop by Peggy’s blog to see who else is participating and read their entries, then think about joining us!

Outside My Window…a beautiful day is dawning.
I am thinking…how wonderful it will be to spend the entire day with hubby for our anniversary. After a leisurely breakfast we’re going to do the flea markets in St. Germain and then dinner at Golden Pines.
I am thankful for…having a wonderful marriage and a fantastic, sweet, sensitive, kind and romantic husband, (but tell him I told you – he still think everyone thinks he’s macho – you know that military attitude thing).
From the kitchen…I’m starting to prepare soup and stew packets for the freezer for the winter.
I am wearing…a skirt and blouse with my favorite sandals.
I am creating…the end of the cookbook this week.
I am going…start my query letters to publishers.
I am reading…The Manning Sisters by Debbie Macomber.
I am hoping…summer lasts a little longer.
I am hearing…the early morning stirrings of our little town.
Around the house…everyone is still sleeping and the silence is golden.
One of my favorite things…canning the summer fruits to enjoy in the winter.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: cutting back the spring bulbs, painting the deck and front porch, cleaning out the front closet and finishing the trim molding in the upstairs bathroom.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…

Red and yellow Parrot Tulips are the first flowers hubby ever sent me. They were SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO beautiful. I still have the petals saved.

Hill upon hill

Lovely touch with the tulips. I am also reading a book by Debbie Macomber, but am being sidetracked by all the notes from school/preschool. I bet living in a small town is just lovely.


Oh I hope you have a happy day and evening. I enjoyed your daybook.
And good luck on all your projects.
I am trying to read and comment on all the daybook entries.
I know your busy today but come by later in the week and say hi.


Boy, you have a lot of work planned for the rest of the week. Whew!! I wish I had fruit and veggies to can to have for the winter. We’re not in a location where I can have a garden and I don’t have canning supplies, but I like the idea, and my grandmother used to do it the whole time I was growing up. Maybe one day…

btw, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Have a memorable day with your husband.


Happy Anniversary! Enjoy your day together.

I’m also a Debbie Macomber fan. I’ve really enjoyed her series of books from Blossom Street.

Have a blessed week!


Thank you for visiting my blog. 🙂

Happy anniversary!! Hubby and I just celebrated our 19th just a few days ago. 🙂

I had a hard time getting into her book A Good Yard. Each chapter was for a different person. Are all of her books that way? If not I’ll try reading one of her books again.:)



Enjoy your special day! You are very lucky to have such a great man and such a full life.
Debbie Macomber is one of my guilty pleasures. I secretly read her. 🙂 I just finished Twenty Wishes.
The simple woman’s daybook sounds wonderful. I’m going to have to check that out.
