The Simple Woman's Daybook - April 6

For Today:

Outside my window: Grey and cold. We're supposed to get rain mixed with snow over the next few days. Just when I thought Spring was here...

I am thinking: that I'm really happy that I took a few days off this week. It will be nice to spend some time with the kids and get some spring cleaning done (since we will be stuck inside).

I am thankful for: Naps on Sundays. They are just so peaceful.

From the kitchen: Simple meals. Tonight hamburger and fries, tomorrow pizza with friends and then conies on Wednesday. Wednesday night will be time to plan for the next two weeks. I should try something new...any suggestions?

I am wearing: Yellow...I need a little brightness on this miserable day.

I am reading: Rondell and I are preparing to lead the discussion in our Crown study, so I'm making sure I'm ready and prepared.

I am hoping: to have a little bit of sun this week.

I am creating: a plan for Jamison's tea party on Wednesday. I want it to be simple yet cute.

I am hearing: Quiet...it's always quiet on Monday mornings.

Around the house: So much Spring cleaning to do and only 3 more weeks till I would like for it to be all done. I'm making a master list today of things that still need to be done.

One of my favorite things: Naps

A few plans for the rest of the week: Tomorrow some friends are coming for pizza, Thursday we lead the discussion at Crown and Saturday Jamison starts soccer again.

What's on your mind?

I'd really like to hear what you do for the tea party! I'm thinking about planning a Generations tea party for Mother's Day and inviting both the Grandma's over.

Have I told you before that I love seeing all the color you add to your posts? So cheerful!

I so agree with you on the lack of spring. It is so cold today and we have a frost warning out for most the the week. There goes my spring flowers. We also love Sunday naps. However this week we didn't get one as I did some catch up around the house. If you need some simple recipes go to my blog and on the left hand side there is a picture of Trey cooking that will take you to the food! Have a blessed Monday!

Hi Kelli! Bummer about the weather! I have quite the hefty spring cleaning list as well. So much to do...so little time, right? Try to enjoy the few days you have off of work and don't clean the WHOLE time, K?
