A day in the Simple Womans Daybook
Outside my window...Daffodils are in bud, . Dare I believe that spring has indeed arrived and cold weather will not return? It's raining today but something we needed.
I am thinking...about my planted seeds some of which have germinated and how the garden will look in the summer with all the flowers.
I am praying... for peace of mind as it looks like I will not be returning to my home town in Essex in the summer after all, as after 14months of no work at all, Mike has been offered work here. This is so hard for me as I was counting the weeks.
I am thankful for...a relaxing Saturday at home with Mike, real coffee in the conservatory and some stitching
From the kitchen.. Dried fruit soaking in cold tea to make a fat free tea loaf, one piece each with our afternoon cups of tea!
I am wearing...My grey fleck skirt and just my rose coloured jumper, a few weeks ago that would have been two jumpers.
I am creating..a new writing for Magpie Tales which is a box of nails! What will I write??? Haven't a clue.
I am going... to try to do better with blogging. And reply to the lovely comments I receive, so must try harder
I am reading... Suite Francaise by Iréne Némirovsky...There is nothing that makes me quite so happy as a well-written, engaging novel on my bedside table to look forward to after a long day, but at the moment the book I am reading is for the U3A reading group and is a translation from the French and while it is quite a pleasant read I have had to back track as there were so many french family names I lost track of who was who, I am sure once I really get into it will be fine!
I am hoping...that I will get back into losing weight again I seem to have lost the enthusiasm.
I am listening to...Radio 2 'Sounds of the 60s' Sounds from my youth!
Around the house... Everything is tidy and clean from my very good clean on Thursday, so a nice easy day.
One of my favourite things... My stitching..... and I have started my Rose Swalwel design which is 'Winter' and I have my next Round Robin piece which is Clare’s.. Mine has moved on to its next stitcher, so exciting.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I am one of the Welcoming persons at church tomorrow so must be early. Hair trim on Tuesday and Nell for her yearly innoculations, Slimming Group on Wednesday, then on Thursday we have planned to go the Nec to the Hobby Craft exhibition which I am really looking forward to, Friday I have the Freedom in Christ course with my church group, so a fun filled week!!
