The Simple Woman's Daybook {July Edition}

For Today

Looking out my window... a picture perfect day

I am thinking... my July calendar page will have to be placed in a mat and saved

I am thankful... that every summer I get to revisit Joan Anderson's books. It is almost time to begin again

One of my favorite things... Sundays at the park and having plenty of room to pull away from the crowd

I am wearing... a black maxi skirt, a cute vanilla, black sleeveless blouse and vanilla pair of sandals that match perfectly

I am creating... papercut journey pages and just opened a new account on instagram where I am sharing them. You are welcome to follow my work


I am watching... The Quest videos by Beth Moore (available at LifeWay)

I am reading... Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

I am listening to... this

I am hoping... to get that sweet baby boy in my arms soon

I am learning... to walk slowly through life

In the garden... the very same list of things we have planted for nearly 32 years

In the kitchen... corn, cucumbers and very soon yellow wax beans

  2. Loved the entire post! Happy July and happy summer!

  3. Thank you as always. Yes, you too, Kay!

  4. I have always loved the pictures you share looking out your windows, Peggy. The very first photo in this post causes me to want to sit and think about the beauty that surrounds your home. xx

    1. Thank you Dianna. We live fairly rural for these days and it is so quiet here.

  5. Love this entry! Looks so summery. =)

    I tried to link up but couldn't get it to work.

    1. I just tried to add your entry and I had trouble. Site may be down. Try again sometime this week and I will continue to check in and see if it works for me.

    2. Amy, I tried again today several times and still no luck with it loading correctly. So sorry, not sure what is wrong. It looks like others are adding their links okay...could be a glitch.
