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...
Valentine's Day

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!

  12. Hi dear friend, Happy Valentine's Day to you and your dear hubby. I loved reading this post. I haven't gotten back to the gym since I was sick and wondering if I should quit. Also haven't gotten back to my machine since Christmas-just need to bring it downstairs where it is warmer and I can see the t.v. Tonight we are going out for a really early dinner(4:30)because the restaurant was already booked and we don't mind eating early.
    Hope you have a wonderful romantic night.
    Hugs, Noreen

  13. Happy Valentines Day...we always have a very low key Valentines day too. Restaurants usually too busy on Valentines day. Disney World sounds like a lot of fun...especially with grands!
    Hope you have a wonderful evening!

  14. That upcoming vacation sounds fabulous...I am trying to plan one....Loved your post....Love your heart


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
