A Simple Woman's Daybook Day 3

FOR TODAY ~ Tuesday the 12th of August, 2008

Outside my window...The evening sun is peeking through cloudy skies as the cows are grazing lazily. In the garden a bumble bee is busy pollinating one of the big sunflowers.

I am thinking...that I have much to do before the day is done.

I am thankful for a heavenly father that knows our every need....Little is much when God is in it!

From the kitchen...the lingering smells of pot roast, mashed potatoes, and corn on the cob.

I am wearing...my favorite pajamas

I am creating...doodles on paper and finishing a ever~growing pile of pumpkins.

I am going...to dig out my Christmas CD's and start driving my family crazy!! Usually I start it in July so I have spared them a whole month.

I am reading...Mary Jane's Farm magazine and finishing up the book of Psalms.

I am hoping...to work on some more of my Christmas shopping. I want to be done early this year.

I am hearing...the sounds of the mower as Danny is out mowing around the electric fence hoping to move the cows to greener pastures.

Around the house...I need to start putting away a few summer things and begin working towards fall.

One of my favorite things ...is making a campfire on a cool crisp night and sitting outside and just taking in the smell of the wood burning. It reminds me of the days of camping as a kid when Moma would cook over a campfire...fried chicken and fried potatoes. Daddy would be fishing and us kids would swim in the river for hours. We went to the most remote places...and slept in tents. We never stayed in a hotel. We bonded as a family, came home with a great tan, lots of fish, and poor ol' Moma came home with poison ivy every time! I don't think Moma misses it one bit.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:clean up my sewing room once again, make a trip to the library, and try to make someone happy!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing

This is a quilt that my Mother~In~Law made when she was very young for her Grandparents. She handstitched it all. When her grandparents passed away it was given back to her and she has so kindly gifted it to me. What a Treasure!

When you find a little time in your day be sure to visit Peggy the creator of The Simple Woman daybook to take a look into other lives of simple women.

Your daybook is just delightful. So beautifully written that I feel like I am there smelling that campfire and hearing those cows.

The quilt is so lovely. What a very special treasure!

LOL ~ I thought I was one of the very few that began Christmas in July. I, too, get out the tunes and my boys actually get into a bit. Of course, they're getting older now and I'm very curious to see if I can get them to sing White Christmas in 90 degree weather!

But right now I'm singing "Little is Much If God is In It".
