The September/October Edition of The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today

Looking out my window... I see the sun breaking behind the tree line further to the east this morning

I am thinking... what a productive summer it has been

I am thankful... for pictures

Once we painted the living room, I went through pictures and found 3 of my very favorites

This picture was taken in 1999 while we attended a home school field trip

Once our last little guy was born and healthy enough, we re-visted the very same spot in 2005. These two pictures are my captured heart of hearts as a momma of six. I could never love two pictures more than these.


Another picture I love is this one of my husband and his dog, Shep. My husband was raised Amish, thus the suspenders and hat. 

One of my favorite things... garden treasures

I am wearing... a lot less choices since going through the closets and drawers. Nothing like a good clean out!

I am creating... clean and tidy spaces

I am watching... and going through these studies again. Be sure to pay attention to this new to me gal, 

Kristi Mclelland and her study, Jesus & Women. This is fantastic!!

P.S. Even if funds are tight and you can not purchase the study guides, take advantage of the FREE video series in the studies. They are well worth your time!

I am reading...

See above link to LifeWay

I am listening to... this and I never grow tired of it!

I am hoping... and yet already know that this 24th year of homeschooling will be a gem! 

In the garden...

A tiny sample of what I received out of our garden this year. It did so well for us that I made a foot path from the house to the garden from my daily trips. I never left empty handed.

I am learning... a few new things from gardening and canning this year.

Lovely peaches waiting for their turn in the kitchen

In the kitchen... so much went through my hands this year and the pantry and freezer is stocked with garden goodness. All that is left to put up is Pear and Apple Butters and Applesauce. Oh! and no doubt venison.

Shared Quote

"For years I viewed my interaction with the Bible as a debit account: I had a need, so I went to the Bible to withdraw an answer. But we do much better to view our interaction with the Bible as a savings account: I stretch my understanding daily, I deposit what I glean, and I patiently wait for it to accumulate in value, knowing that one day I will need to draw on it. Bible study is an investment with a long-term payoff." This is an excellent resource! I highly recommend this one.
