The Simple Woman's Daybook {February Edition}

For Today

Looking out my window... clouds, lingering ice and an otherwise good day to look into my new goodies. A new fantastic looking magazine, sweet cactus stamp, floss and fabric...of late it is all about the fabric. It is the little things in life...

I am thinking... what a difficult day yesterday (thus the day late daybook post) and how being with my sweet girls ended it with a rainbow.

I am thankful... for library stores where you can pick up nearly-new books for a few dollars.

One of my favorite things... when the latest Gudrun Sjödén catalog comes in the mail. A bit pricey, but a much appreciated piece or two a year is all I need. 

I am wearing... black leggings, black cami, black tee, gray knit long-sleeve and long, black vest tunic over it all.

I am creating... mini quilts and loving my new steam iron.

I am watching  watched... this movie and it was extremely good.

I am reading... the latest issue of Prevention magazine.

I am listening to... this and thinking it's about time this message found a song! 

I am hoping... that this daybook post inspires you to create your own.

I am learning... a new way to stitch and it is fast becoming addicting. I love the lines of Sashiko!!

In the kitchen... always fruits and vegetables...preparing them in different ways and combinations.

because I love my pixie, which gets a bit more silver every time I get it cut!

  1. I really enjoyed a saying I found on your pinterest board for gray !!!
    Letting go of who you think you should be and being who you really are...
    I guess that is what you have done... Thats where I have been at since Dad died on my Bday last May... and not letting or allowing others to stand in the way of that process !

    1. Yep, Linda that is what I am doing. I am who I am..{smile} Sorry to hear about your dad.

  2. Hi, Peggy, loved everything about your February Daybook! Enjoyed your photos and thoughts and shared interests and hobbies. I'm inspired!

  3. No wonder you're addicted to sashiko, it is incredible!
    I also like buying books and mags for nothing, or visit a library to borrow them. I think it is a very ecofriedly way.
    Kind regards from Hungary,

    1. It sure is...I am working on getting my first piece framed.

  4. I like your papercut for February! Happy to hear that you are enjoying sashiko. I did a quilt back in 2010 shortly after my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. I found the repetitive and simple stitching of sashiko quite calming. Your posts and images always are inspirational! Thank you for hosting.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Yes, those simple stitching are very calming.

  5. I thought I would try the link up again. I'm embarrassed to say, but I seem to always get confused on how to do this. I guess I get those "senior moments"!

    1. Yeah! Regina, you did a very fine job with your daybook. I enjoyed reading it! Thank you for joining us.
