Simple Woman's Daybook...

Outside my window...
...there are single blossoms atop the hollyhocks. The rest have gone to seed.

I am thinking....
...of how delicious the supper smells as it cooks. Tonight it is Creamy Sausage Stew with Virginia Peach Pudding for dessert. What else can a girl be thinking about?

I am thankful for...
...a smart husband and grown son who figured out how to fix the inner workings of the tractor's joystick which would've been a huge expense to purchase new.

From the kitchen....
...ditto "what I am thinking about" (see above).

I am wearing... jeans with a hole in the right knee, a white T-shirt, my silver cross necklace (that I rarely take off), and bare feet.

I am creating...
....another bit of stitchery for the Grand Angel.

I am going... eat supper in about 20 minutes!

I am reading...
...Martha Stewart Living, October 2008. O joy!

I am hoping... have a little more time to stitch tonight.

I am hearing...
...the screen door slam. J. just came in from hitting golf balls.
I've also been hearing the sound of the sprinkler's "tic-a tic-a tic-a" as it spins round and round all day long. I'm soaking down the lawn before it freezes.

Around the house... feels like summer still. People in and out, flies buzzing in trying to find a warm place to be. It's Monday, the day I wash the sheets. While it's still nice outdoors, I'm hanging all of today's wash on the clothesline.

One of my favorite things...
...afternoon coffee time, preferably with chocolate on the side.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
Pregnancy testing the mature cows.
Feeding the crew.
Daily home school lessons.
More embroidery.
Freezing sliced apples with the same ladies as last week.
Serving Pie at the Cowboy Poetry & Art Show at the community hall.

Here's a picture thought I am sharing...

Hubby and I went for a drive in the Canyon.
It's bliss to me!

  3. Love reading about your day - Virginia Peach Pudding sounds delicious!post the recipe if you have a minute- I'd love to give it a try. Thanks for the beautiful fall pictures - ours are just beginning to change.

  4. Super fun to read, Jody! :-) I loved all of it. And I think the photo of the colorful leaves is sooo pretty! Our weather is erratic lately, so we've had some hot, summery days, too, which is strange since it was cool for so long. Enjoy that grandbaby! :-)

    Susan, another happy Grandma
