It's been a while since I last participated in The Simple Woman's Daybook, so here we go...
Looking out my window... the sun has set on what was a beautiful day in the Rocky Mountain West.
I am thinking... these cherries we bought today are perfect!
I am thankful ... for the above-mentioned cherries because they make a great snack before heading to bed.
One of my favorite things ... well, cherries, and peace with quiet.
I am creating ... a king-sized quilt for my bed. No, I won't be doing the actual quilting, but I am piecing all 49 blocks together. I finished the blocks a couple of days ago and now I need to sew them together...
|one of the 49 blocks, with 48 more stacked underneath|
I am watching ... the news every night and praying for our leaders and wanna-be leaders to listen to godly counsel.
I am wearing ... white capri pants with a gray-and-white striped 3/4-sleeve-length hoodie, silver hoop earrings and have just kicked off my sandals.
I am reading ... Heaven by Randy Alcorn. (very, very interesting reading)
I am listening to ... just the fan blowing right now.
I am hoping ... a combo magazine rack and toilet paper holder I ordered from Amazon arrives on the day it is scheduled to come.
I am learning ... to French braid my hair! Every day it gets a little easier and I am so pleased!
|this is what the back of my head looks like these days|
In the kitchen ... I continue to eat healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free meals. It's been 32 months of eating this way and the health benefits have been very good.
In the schoolroom ... we don't have school-aged children any more, but some of my grandchildren are busy with homeschooling and one of my grandsons will be returning to his private Christian school in just a couple of weeks.
In the garden ... (so glad you asked!) Last week Beloved planted a Weeping Willow tree in the back of our yard where there is perpetual drainage of water due to the slope of everybody's yards around here.
|I nick-named the Weeping Willow, "Cry Baby"|
Shared Quote ... "The most magnetic quality in a Christian is not our faith or our love but joy (laughter)." Chuck Swindoll
A moment from my day ... I've made the wonderful discovery that one has to buy green onions only once during the growing season. Cut off the bulb end and stick that in dirt. You'll have your own fresh green onions for the rest of the summer! Just watch them grow, trim, watch them grow again, trim ... It's delightful!
Closing notes ... Fires, floods, shootings, plane crashes, earthquakes, political unrest and terrorism -- I think God is trying to tell us something! Are we listening?
