The Simple Woman's Daybook & Link-up ~ March 23rd Edition

For Today...March 23rd
(while I post on Mondays, I most time write my daybook pages over the week-end)

Outside my window... snow nearly melted and ground thawing

I am thinking...  about taking that first speed walk outside very soon

I am thankful... that I live in a private area surrounded by nothing more than trees

I am wearing... black workout capri pants, baby blue top, sneakers and black ankle socks

I am creating... fresh pieces with lots of color

I am going... to begin making my own glass and counter top spray cleaners. I want to begin putting my essential oils to use.
*If you have an simple recipe that you are using, please share in the comment section.

I am wondering...  what to take care of first once a lovely 60 degree day is at my doorstep

I am reading... (rather skimming)
Canning & Preserving 
by Ashley English 

I read this copy in/on: borrowed copy from my local library

HERE is the link where you can see more about the book or make a purchase

My personal thoughts on this book/magazine: This is a nice starter book for canning. I found 2 recipes that I want to try.

I am hoping... for the mud to dry up just a little bit

I am learning... that things happen in their own, good time
I am pondering... pieces I want to add to my spring and summer wardrobe. I am currently and slowly changing my style of dress
(see more under the prompt "From the boardroom...")

In my kitchen...
{roasted cauliflower topped with Parmesan cheese and vinegar...delish}

{citrus-topped double blueberry muffins}

In My Garden...

{last week I was spreading the lime and fertilizer on the garden and had a wonderful treat while doing so...of course I heard them first, but then seeing them was a very special sign for me}

A favorite quote for today...

My Paper Cut Journal
{pages 17 & 18}

{just like my days of late...white, gray with spots of color}

A peek into one of my days...

One of my favorite things...  my oldest daughter, Olivia, coming home to plan and begin her quilt project

From the board room...
