The Simple Woman’s Daybook
I haven’t done a Simple Woman’s Daybook for a long time, and today seems like a good time for a Daybook.
Outside my window... it’s just starting to lighten up.
I am thinking... that I’m glad our taxes are done (well, almost done … DH will review our returns today, and then if everything looks ok to him, I’ll file our returns this evening).
I am thankful... that DH is so tolerant of my passion for quilting and doesn’t begrudge my time in the sewing room (or my purchase of fabrics).
In the kitchen... there are a few dishes on the counter that need to be put away.
I am wearing... blue jeans, long-sleeved t-shirt, black Sketchers.
I am creating... a quilt for T#2’s bedroom makeover … I’ve got the body of the quilt pieced … now I just need to piece the borders and sew them on.
I am going... to get back to the Y today. I gave myself a bit of a break the last couple of days … time to get back on track.
I am wondering... whether we’re ever going to have a “real” snow this winter.
I am reading... Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
I am hoping... to be able to get the borders T#2’s quilt on so I can start quilting today.
I am looking forward to... our trip to Florida in May … 8 days at Disney World and 4 days at the beach … 12+ days with DD, DSIL and the grands … perfect!
Around the house... it’s peaceful and quiet … I love getting up early in the morning like this.
A favorite quote for today...
One of my favorite things... is spending time with my Ts, which I got to do last night.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Today is Valentine’s Day. DH and I will keep our celebration rather low key, with dinner out and a movie at home. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
