The Simple Woman’s Daybook 03/01/2010


FOR TODAY
Outside my window... it’s dark, as night closes in after a beautiful, sunny spring-like day.

I am thinking... about how beautiful the water of the bay and the gulf were today when we went to lunch.

I am thankful for... my kids and my grandkids. They’re a never-ending source of delight and an occasional source of frustration :) 

From the kitchen... nothing except the faint, lingering scent of the pot roast I made last night. The garbage disposal is fixed so we can do dishes again (drat!)

I am wearing... an old pair of jeans that is getting a little big and a blouse. Barefoot, of course.

I am creating... answers to assignments people have posted in the workshop I’m teaching this month at RWA Online.

I am going... to my daughter’s new house later this evening.

I am reading... a book for the RITAs.

I am hoping... to be in my own house by this time next month.

I am hearing... The BackYardigans entertaining the 3-year old and the 10-month old blowing bubbles in her playpen.

Around the house... Silence on the edges of the kids’ contented noises. It’s a very nice sound.

One of my favorite things... root beer. I just swigged the last of my Diet A&W and wish I had more.

A few plans for the rest of the week: staying on schedule with both workshops I’m teaching, plotting the first novel in a series I’m hoping to sell soon, lunch with new friends on Saturday. 

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Hey Sherry,

Just wanted to say I loved your article in the RWA newsletter about saggy middles. It was SO informative and right what I needed at this point in time!

Thanks again!
