The Simple Woman's Daybook - March 2011

FOR TODAY - March 31st


Outside my window...there is sun and warmth. No sweater needed today.
I am thinking...that I have a zillion things to do today and instead I am blogging. I do hope I am not addicted to blogging.
I am thankful ...that my sweet daughter was able to tolerate a medical test that she had to have today. I am very grateful that my 97 year old Aunt who broke her hip last Sunday was able to tolerate the surgery. I am grateful that I could spend some time with both of my Aunts this week.
From the learning rooms...I am learning so much from being around my Aunt Della who is 97 years old and my Aunt Alene who is 90 years old. I interviewed them this week and I will be creating a blog on their thoughts on life.
From the kitchen...there is nothing coming into my mind for dinner tonight. I think take home pizza sounds good. I am really bummed out that the price of Chocolate is going up. I don't know how I can survive without it. I wonder if there is a way to store it. I need a year's supply for sure.
I am wearing...stretch brown Levi's and I need the stretch today - a brown flowered tee shirt and light blue slippers.
I am creating...a list of all the things I need to do to begin Spring Cleaning. De junking is number one on the list.
I am going... over to the Riverton Hospital to visit a friend that had knee surgery on Tuesday. I may take a moment to see if I can find a blouse or sweater to go with a new skirt I bought.
I am reading..."Snow Rising". I thought I would have plenty of time to read while I was sitting with Aunt Della; but I didn't get any reading done at all. I am just slowly plugging a way on this book. I finished the short book on the temple and it was so inspirational, I plan to read it again.
I am hoping...that the sunshine will stay for a couple of day. I am praying that my daughter and son in law will have a safe drive to Idaho Falls. My son in law, Brandon's father passed away after suffering with cancer. His father was a very good man and will be greatly missed by his family.We will be driving up to Idaho Falls for the funeral on Monday. We love this family and pray for them to be comforted.
I am hearing...the TV, my fingers typing this post, and the cars going by. I have been listening to the birds each morning and it sounds so good. I feel spring is coming!!!
Around the house...I need to dust!
One of my favorite things...llately, is reading other blog posts. I am so impressed with all of the beautiful thoughts that are expressed by so many. I love those who write about their beliefs, family events, and just their musings. I love making new blogging friends.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I plan to catch up on my journaling and work on some genealogy - Maybe a Friday date night with my hubby - Enjoy every moment of conference - Drive to Idaho Falls for the funeral on Monday
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...




Here is our sweet Suesue and Sammy

Hi LeAnn!

I just can't believe how much sunshine and warmth you are getting! It's not really cold here, but the wind is blowing 30 miles an hour!

I do hope that your aunt is doing better - she sounds like a wonderful, interesting lady, and I can tell you love her so much! She's very lucky to have you in her life.

I was sad to hear that Brandon's dad passed away, my prayers will certainly be with them to feel the sweet comfort of the Savior.

Drive safely on Monday!

Hugs and love,
Barb

I like reading your posts. I am so glad for the sunshine! I hope it stays around a while. I am with you on the chocolate! Maybe that is why I need stretch pants too:) Take care! Melody

Isn't it wonderful to have sunshine and warmth. It makes me feel energized. I, too, am sad that the price of chocolate is going up. I think we have 8 weeks to stock up. Can it be frozen? I am sorry to hear about you Aunt. Hope that things will go well for her. We have a dear sister in our ward who is 99 and fell while getting out of a car at the temple and broke her hip. She is an awesome lady and walks a mile every day. She is my inspiration! Sorry for your son in law's loss of his father. Please do drive carefully on Monday. It really is fun reading other blogger's posts. There are some wonderful women out there who lift and bless the lives of their readers and you are one of them. I so enjoy reading your posts. Thanks for stopping by to visit me also. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy conference.

Hi LeAnn, happy April! I, too, enjoy reading blogs. I don't watch tv, so I tell myself that I'm not wasting too much time. :D Am in the de-junking mode here, too. Have a lot more to do. I keep getting sidetracked! Sorry to hear about your son-in-laws father, have a safe trip Monday. And thanks for stopping by my blog!
Hugs, Cheryl
