The Simple Woman's Daybook - "See What Is Going On In My Day~

For Today... April 10th, 2015~
Take a moment and visit other Simple Woman's Daybook entries; Enjoy!
Outside my window...it is a beautiful partly cloudy day. I love it when there is sunshine because it elevates my mood.
I am thinking...that it is time to make some appointments with physicians that I need to see. I keep putting it off. All I need to do is pick up the phone and dial. What I dislike about making appointments is that you never can get to a receptionist anymore until you go through a menu of options. Then when they do answer they put you on hold. Ugh!! 
I am thankful...today for a very attentive husband that is always willing to listen to all my thoughts. He is a very loving and tolerate man. I am very blessed. 
I am wearing...Gray jogging pants, red top and black slippers. I am dressed well enough to go out front and pick up  my mail.
I am creating...genealogy and family history files. I have been having fun looking at old pictures. 
Here I am searching for some chocolate~ The beginning of my addiction~
I am going...to the temple tomorrow for my morning shift. I love the assignment I have right now. I work with the sisters that are coming to the temple for the first time. After the temple we are leaving for Rexburg, Idaho. Our grandson Austin will be ordained to the office of a Priest in the Aaronic Priesthood. We are going to have with us our grandson, Joseph and Christian who are all the same age. I love getting them together; it is the best. 
We just had Austin's family here for three days and we had a lot of fun with them. I will be doing  a post on our family visits soon. 
I am wondering...why life seems to go by so fast. I am starting to feel my age more and I don't know if being old is all that much fun. However, I love life and plan to live a good one. 
I am reading...The New Testament with a commentary. I love The New Testament and I love reading about the Savior's life. It is the study this year in our Sunday School Class. I have been behind for a while; but I am now caught up.

 I will be going back to reading the Book of Mormon which I loved to read over and over. It is another Testament of Jesus Christ. 
I an reading the Novel, "Fire and Steel - A Generation Rising" by Gerald N. Lund. It is volume one so it is a series book. I really love Gerald Lund as an author. This book is set in the era of the rising of Nazi Germany. Thus far it is very captivating and I am loving the plot.


I am learning...to play some mind strengthening games. I worry about getting Alzheimer Disease. My father had it. I am finding it challenging to do some of the games but I feel like I do well on some of them.
In my garden...there is nothing right now. However, I have decided to do a deck garden this year. I don't think that my husband and I can really do a big garden. I am planning on planting tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, carrots and some herbs. We will also be doing some landscaping with bushes and flowers. 
In my kitchen...there is nothing cooking. It will be a simple fare tonight. In fact, my husband hasn't been feeling very good; so I don't know what he will feel like eating. He has had an upset stomach today. 
Something new about me.......I love to decorate my home. I am getting ready to purchase some curtains for a few of the rooms in my home. I am also redoing some things in my kitchen. I am excited to brighten up that area. 
A favorite quote for today...

A peek into one of my days...
Here is my dearest husband with our youngest grand-baby, Haven~ 

One of my favorite things...is go to movies. I am sure I have mentioned this before. I will recommend two movies that we have gone to recently that were outstanding. I loved; "Macfarland USA", and "Cinderella'. Macfarland USA was such a marvelous movie of courage and endurance. I hope all of my children will take my grandchildren to this movie. I have always loved the story of Cinderella and of course I had to see this one. By far this is the best movie of them all. Both my husband and I cried in this movie.There are many values that are learned from this plot. The best of all was to always be Courageous and Kind. I love those qualities. I want to go to the movie; "Freetown". This movie is the inspirational story of missionaries that are caught up in a Civil War in Liberia, West Africa. I have placed links to all three of these movies.

Thanks for the beautiful post. Have a great time in Rexburg. That's God's Country, you know. Congratulations on your grandson. I get to sub at the temple tonight, and I'm excited. I LOVE my temple assignment also. Hugs. Have a great trip.

Gerald Lund books are great. Always good read. Living where I do, we do not have a movie theater and it is a 100-mile drive to the nearest theater. I love to see movies, too.....thank you for pointing out some that I need to put on my go-to list. Some of those brain games....well, lets just say some of them are pretty tough. This was a great/fun blog - thanks for sharing!

I enjoyed your daybook, LeAnn. We have similar thoughts about several things. Time is indeed going by much too fast for me. I really can't quite believe that I'm nearly 70 years of age, that is until I try to do some of the work that I used to do and then have the aches and pains to deal with! But I am very thankful for these years I've been given and plan to enjoy many more, God willing.
That is a cute photo of you digging for chocolate. I love my chocolate, too, but I'm really not supposed to eat it. Hope you get those appointments made and over with soon. That is another thing that comes with getting older I've found...more doctor appointments. And I dislike going more than most!
Hope you have a nice weekend, take care!

Hi LeAnn!

What a cutie you were (still are), I love that cute little curly head! Will we ever get over our love for chocolate?! Let's hope not!

Getting old is definitely not fun! I sometimes, in my mind, feel like I am 18 . . . then I have to move! You and Roger look great though, and you stay active, and I think that is the secret to staying young.

I think it's wonderful that you take Joseph with you when you come up and do things with the boys. He is such a nice young man. It was so fun to see him again when you came for Christian's ordination.

I need to get busy and read the Book of Mormon again. I love to read random scriptures when I study, but I need to just make it a goal to start right from the beginning again.

I need to go to the movies! Everyone says that, Cinderella, is really cute!

Much love to you sweet sister!

Hugs and Love,
Barb
