The Simple Woman's Daybook {October} Edition



For Today

Looking out my window... clearing with a blue sky after days of much needed rain

I am thinking... how things you thought would never change...simply do


I am thankful... for the really good books I have collected over the years. Pulling them off the shelf for some cozy October reading

One of my favorite things... is this view of the garden


I am creating... a large packing list for an upcoming week at the lake cabin with my beautiful daughters who are my best of friends!



I am watching... Anne of Green Gables, the entire series from start to finish

I am wearing... black capri  pants, gray cami and gray tunic tee

I am reading... Zen And The Art of Quilting : finding peace through piecework
just beginning this little hardcover book that came in the mail on Saturday


I am listening to... nothing, windows are open and the glorious day is blowing in through the window...cleansing my spirit.

I am hoping... to get through this winter and out the other side in one piece with a new direction

I am learning... that for me, midlife is so much more than a span of years

In the kitchen... meals of sauteed brussel sprouts and chickpeas in olive oil, taco salad and roasted root veggies
