Simple Woman #82

For Today . . .  March 29, 2010

Outside my window . . .  it's sunny and +15 degrees C!  It's so beautiful outside!  There are only a few pockets of snow left where the deepest drifts had been and the Canada geese are honking loud and clear as they circle and fly further north.  

I am thankful . . .  for the change in the seasons.  I am looking forward to green grass and seeing the leaves on the trees again.

And I also am thankful . . .  that I still have potatoes and onions from last year's garden.  

I am praying . . .   for Bob's dad who celebrated his 88th birthday on Saturday with a big family gathering.   

I am thinking . . .  about seeing family this weekend. 

I am creating . . . 
  on my quilt again - it's been stacked away for far too long!

I am celebrating . . . Holy Week as we move towards the cross and then the empty tomb.

From the kitchen . . .  Tropical Granola (thanks again for the recipe, Jill!) for breakfast, cheese and tomatoes on toasted oatmeal bread for lunch, and roast beef - mashed potatoes and gravy - creamed corn - roasted asparagus - mashed carrots and turnips - fresh whole wheat honey buns - and apple pie for supper.  We are having friends tonight :))

I am wearing . . .  black track pants, red tshirt and still a fleece jacket.

I am reading . . .  Luke 22 - The Last Supper  (I skipped ahead to read these chapters during Holy Week.)
                           Reclaiming the "L" Word (Renewing the Church from Its Lutheran Core) by Kelly A. Fryer - chapter 3 "Jesus is Lord".
                           A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer - "a story of fate, fortune, redemption and revenge."

I am hoping . . .  to go for a bike ride tomorrow.

I am hearing . . .  the Dr. Phil show on CTV.  I don't watch this very often but I'm working in the kitchen so I turned it on.

I am going . . . to vacuum and dust as soon as I finish this.

Around the house and yard . . . all the winter dishes and lingering decorations have been packed away and the spring wreath is hung, the bathroom is clean and I am ready for spring!

One of my favourite thin
gs . . . playing games with friends.  I think there will be one or two on the agenda after supper tonight.

A few plans for the rest of the week . . .  some closet cleaning, sewing, scrapbooking, a trip to the bottle depot, things to mail at the post office, a meeting, and several church services.  

[add]A quote for today . . .  Epiphany  (from StoryPeople)
She saw herself reflected in the store window & then the sun changed & she disappeared & all she could see was her eyes & she remembered thinking, I make a very nice floor lamp & that was the day she decided to quit her job."

Here is a picture thought I am sharing . .  .  tiny little plants that Naomi has started are coming to life.  I hope I can keep them alive this week!

Once again I am using Peggy's idea over at Simple Woman Daybooks.


  1. I want to come for dinner!! I LOVE reading what you are cooking!!

  2. We still have loads of onions from last year's garden, too! Yesterday I picked up more bulbs to plant this week. We're going to try garlic this year, too.

    I enjoyed 'Epiphany'. Sometimes I think I'd make a nice floor lamp...
