The Simple Women's Daybook

I thought I would participate this week in this bloggy tradition.




Outside My Window — Beautiful, sunny 70 degree weather.



I am thinking – about the joy of delivering my newest blessing in the next few weeks.



I am thankful for — Gods’s hand in what could have been a fatal accident last night, when the car I was in broke down on a busy highway in the dark going highway speeds. Cool thing, if I had gone into labor, I was with my midwife. She is just as good at controling out of control vehicles as she is at delivering babies.



From the kitchen — my 13dd cooking dinner.



I am wearing — maternity clothes with nice spots on the belly of the shirt.



I am creating — a clean and clutter free home.



I am going — to the apple orchard soon.



I am reading — "The Age of Opportunity" by Paul David Tripp



I am hoping — to adopt blessings soon.



I am hearing — my blessings being quite, studying and resting (so I guess that I am not hearing anything).



Around the house — vacuum cleaner taken apart to be fixed.



One of my favorite things — the dinner table set and a few candles smelling the house.



A Few Plans For This Week — Apple picking, washing, dehydrating, canning, pies, etc
