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 3 June 2013


Outside my window....the hot muggy weather is gone, replaced by cooler more seasonable days.  The soft sounds of the wind chimes and the breezes blowing through the trees are a welcome change from the oppressive stillness of the past week.

I am thinking...about carefree days and days full of responsibility and obligation.  Don't let it get around but I think I might be growing up.  The days of obligation seem to be winning out over the days with nothing planned and nothing to do.

I am thankful...for sunshine and rainbows that follow the storms.  I know that God has blessed me every time that my sons call or my daughter smiles.

From the kitchen...there will be something on the table tonight, I just don't know what it is quite yet.  

I am wearing...warm and cozies!  It's a mite chilly this morning but I am happy for the relief so bundling up is in the cards for today.

I am going...to PT this morning and to run a few errands after then it is back home to enjoy my family and my life.

I am reading....about St. Monica, a woman close to my heart.  For the first few days after school ended I was so overwhelmed by the idea that I could read anything I wanted that I wasn't able to read anything. Now I cannot seem to stop reading.

I am hearing....Layn chattering away as he helps his Auntie feed the dogs,  Melissa get the laundry machines going for the day, and MK's rousing military workout music playing in the other room.

Around the house....Monday morning things are happening.

One of my favorite things...the routineness of our days that at the same time offer room for the surprises of large families and friends.

A few plans for the rest of the week....except for standing appointments I am out of the planning mode for a few weeks.  

Here is a picture thought that I am sharing with you....
Papa and Layn worked hard together on Saturday to build raised beds so MK can plant the rest of the garden today.  What would papa do without all the help he gets from Layn?

Hi Ann, A nice late morning to you! : )

Life is good but strange at our age isn't it? I know what you mean when your write about your son's calling or your daughter smiling...I feel the same way on things. I feel just so thankful.

I really love that photo of Papa and Layn...That is the sweetest thing ever and I plan on showing my husband. I can so see him being like that one day when we have grandchildren.

Enjoyed your daybook as always, I'm getting ready to throw some beans in the crockpot and we'll see what happens from that! Ha! Perhaps it will morph into a mexican casserole or something of the sort. ; )

Take care now dear one,
love, ~amelia
