It's that simple

I'm taking part in the Simple Woman's Daybook today thanks to the inspiration of my friend Jenilee.

Outside my window... it's 36 and cloudy. It must have rained during the night because the driveway is wet.
I am thinking...about how to balance work and home
I am thankful for...PapaBear's ability to play for hours and hours with the kids
From the kitchen...Sam is on his way in there to get a rice cake for a snack
I am wearing...a 10 year old Abercrombie & Fitch sweatshirt & Eddie Bauer pajama pants that PapaBear gave me the first Christmas we were married
I am creating...a 440 page blog book for a widow and her three boys
I am going...somewhere....maybe. Tuesday is a work day for me, but sometimes I work from home and other times I go to the coffee shop. It depends on how needy the kids are.
I am reading...Dawn's Prelude by Tracie Pederson
I am hoping...for pleasant weather this Spring. We only get a few weeks off between renting skis and the camping season. If the weather is poor, that time seems even shorter.
I am hearing...the crunch of Sam's rice cake
Around the house...are scraps of paper, Tuperwear stencils, and cut out boats & helicoptors
One of my favorite things...the feeling of contentment that I started my day with yoga and Bible Study
A few plans for the rest of the week: Finish two books, photograph a six month old, study up on Maple Syruping for our Maple Syrup event on Saturday.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...


  1. I used to participate in this little meme. I should again someday. It's fun to get these little snapshots into your day!

    ...anytime I hear "maple syruping" I think of Little House in the Big Woods...:)

  2. Loved the little snap shot into your day! I love that picture! How fun!

  3. Hey, we're doing boots and mud here, too!

    Enjoy your week!
