The Simple Woman's Daybook Apr. 13th issue

FOR TODAY April 13th, 2009

Outside my window...there is glorious sunshine, and the dog is sprawled out on her bed on the deck soaking it in

I am thinking...what a difference it made turning off my computer fopr the whole week-end.

I am thankful for...our health, and the openness our kids have with us.

From the kitchen...Ooooh, lots of leftovers from Easter. Quiche, colored eggs, spiral ham, pineapple casserole, mashed potatoes, turnips, cake and ice cream and of course candy LOL

I am red flannel nightgown for another 5 min. than I'm off to get ready for the day.

I am creating...a large commissioned painting. A calming, minimal seascape.

I am NYC this week, probably the Met.

I am reading...a wonderful book one of my collectors in Canada sent me for Easter, Fifty-Seven Words that Changes the World, A Journey Through the Lord's Prayer

I am hoping...that the builder will have floor plans done by the end of this week and that we find property we can afford.

I am rabbit Rosie (The honorable Rosemary Woodsorrell) munching on her lettuce and carrots.

Around the house...things are still in good shape after cleaning for Easter. (sigh of relief!)

One of my favorite the smell of hyacinths at Easter.

A few plans for the rest of the week: NYC trip, preparing teaching materials, helping daughter make costume for anime convention (Teaching her to sew)

Here is picture thought I am sharing... My Violas

Firstly, I am so digging ur blog! Every week I find at least one new blog that speaks to my heart through the Daybook.

Secondly,I had a similar experience this weekend, when I turned off the computer. Me thinks I need to do this more regularly. Does this make me an addict? XD

Thanks for sharing!

Hi and welcome! Thanks so much for visiting. I've enjoyed the many of the blogs I find on the Simple Woman's Daybook, also.

Yes, turning off the computer for a few days was an eye opener. I think I need to do it a little more often!
