The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today...

Outside my window...it's cool, clear, and sunny.

I am thinking...about having to go to the grocery store today.  Ugh.

I am thankful...that our garden is producing so well.

From the learning rooms...school is officially over - except for Math on Mondays.

In the kitchen... scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and Southwestern Bean Soup for supper. Also, putting cucumbers in salt brine. I love making pickles!!  :)

I am wearing...a jean skirt and a turquoise top.

I am creating...crocheting a white shawl for myself. I've been working on it since early spring, and I'm almost finished!  Next on my list is a baby blanket for my baby granddaughter due to arrive in August.  :)

I am going...to deliver a birthday gift to a dear friend today.

I am wondering...if our hens will ever hatch the eggs they're sitting on!

I am reading...the six volumes of Charlotte Mason. I don't think I'll ever get through all of them.

I am hoping...for a relaxing week-end.

I am looking forward to...being with my daughter and son-in-law when my granddaughter makes her entrance.  :')

I am hearing...our roosters crowing and our turkeys gobbling.

Around the house...laundry, laundry, and..did I mention laundry?  ;)

I am pondering...Philippians 4:8. I struggle with keeping my mind on the good things.

One of my favorite things...hearing the laughter of my children.

A photo to share... this photo was shared on a missionary friend's Facebook page. We could not get over  the size of this monster crocodile! I have no idea where it was taken, but he said that villagers were frequently disappearing. The Army was finally called in to kill it.

Hope you all have a wonderful week-end!

  1. That is one amazing picture Lisa! Oh my goodness the size of that reptile - Quite hard to believe that it grew this size.

    Thank you for sharing today...praying that our little granddaughter makes her appearance with calmness (as calm as one can when we are being born!) and that everything goes well for your daughter!


    1. Thanks for stopping by, dear friend.I will be praying for your little granddaughter. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing, cant believe the size of that croc

    1. So glad you dropped in, Mary. :)
      Many blessings!

  3. Oh, you are expecting a grandbaby, how exciting. Is this your first? And now you have made me hungry for scrambled eggs & toast, I should have just popped on over.

    Wow, that is one amazing croc! It looks like it could swallow the entire village. I had to show the family.

    Thanks for the sweet comment Lisa at my place. You are such a ray of sunshine!

  4. Hello Jane,
    This is our 4th grandchild. :)
    You're welcome to breakfast - or any other meal! It might be quite a drive, though. ;)
    I hope you have a lovely week-end, friend.

    1. 4th???? You don't look old enough to have one. You must have been a child bride. :)

      Okay, so I scrambled some eggs to put in fried rice last night, but I thought of you. (wave)

    2. Jane,
      My hubby and I were high school sweethearts and got married at the tender age of 16. :) We're celebrating 30 years of wedded bliss next month. :)
      Yum - fried rice..love that stuff! :)
      Hope your week is blessing-filled!

    3. Ahh, that is really neat! I didn't get married until I was 34 (better late than never, ha).

      Have a super week!

  5. Can so relate to laundry being everywhere. Either hanging and ready for bedroom closets, or on the couch waiting to be folded, or on the top of the couch, already folded and waiting for drawers. It's never ending clutter. Ugh. I am so thankful to have a washer and dryer, however. And to have clothes to wash at all. Have a good weekend! Excited for you about another granddaughter!

    1. So true, Christine..I would hate to have to do all this laundry on a washboard. ;) A blessed week-end to you too, my friend.

  6. I hear you on the "ugh" about going to the grocery store. I always dread having to go shopping too. I'd much rather be home! And that is quite an amazing crocodile!

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Lady Violet.
      I hope you're having a wonderful week-end. :)
