There's no place like home.

There's no place like home.
Home is where my husband and I reside; wherever that may be.

The Simple Woman's Daybook 17 June 2013


Outside my window...the sun is shining brightly and the air is perfumed with the heavy, sweet scent of the peonies in the front yard.  The weatherman is only calling for a 30% chance of rain this afternoon.  Does that mean that we have 70% chance of sunshine all day?  I sure hope so but my math skills have always been a little shaky.

I am thinking....about hello's and goodbye's.  For the last three weeks I have been spending time in the pool at our local rehab center.  I have to say that I am going to miss some of the people that I have been spending time with.  The aquatherapist is one of the most caring people that I have ever met.  Also quite a few of my fellow patients are fine examples of the human spirit.

I am thankful...for a daughter who is loving, self-less, giving, and thoughtful.

From the kitchen...there is a big question mark hanging in the air.  No leftovers are in existence since everything that MK prepared yesterday is gone.  The meal she prepared is going to be a tough act to follow.

I am wearing....shorts and a tee shirt.

I am going....to stay home for the rest of the day.  I have four quilt blocks to finish then a top to set together.  My goal is to get this sampler quilt together so I can get it onto the frame tomorrow.

I am hearing...Melissa putting newly dried herbs into jars in the kitchen, Layn talking to himself while he plays out on the front porch, and Elton John singing in the background.

Around the house...the cleaning is done, laundry is out on the lines, and Melissa has a whole bunch of oregano drying. Sound like a good day to get things done.

One of my favorite things...watching young children discover their world.

A few plans for the rest of the week...live the best life that I can.

Here is a picture thought that I am sharing with you...

I just love the photo of MK. What a sweet, serene look she has on her face, she seems to be such a sweet young woman...I sure wish y'all lived closer, I think it would be nice to visit over coffee. I know how you feel about those "salt of the earth" kind of people. I miss some too, I ran across the postcard written by an elderly gentleman last month and I just hate it that he is gone now. I guess we have to be that salt of the earth now to carry it on and carry on on this crazy earth.

MK is a true gem and a living testament to the kind of woman who raised her.

I'm jealous of your rain. We're getting a few pithy clouds and not much else.
