The Simple Woman’s Daybook—Birthday Edition

The Simple Woman’s Daybook—Birthday Edition

For today … my birthday—Monday, March 9, 2009
Outside my window … cold, cloudy, foggy, a chance of snow
I am thinking … about the wonderful time my family had this weekend with some friends who we haven’t visited with in a long time
I am thankful for … another year of life, God’s grace and blessing, my husband and children
From the kitchen … it’s well stocked, after several days with bare cupboards; a new chicken recipe tonight
I am wearing … red turtleneck sweater, jeans, brown polka-dot socks
I am reading … Fatima: The Great Sign, Lent and Easter Wisdom From G.K. Chesterton, Faith and Family magazine
I am hoping … to stay on track with healthy eating this week (minus the treat I am enjoying right now; see below)
I am creating … the same pink scarf (Boy, am I slow!)
I am hearing … kids chatting while enjoying a snack
Around the house … it’s clean—YEAH!—but I have a bunch of laundry to catch up on, and I want to figure out a lenten/spring cleaning plan
One of my favorite things … a free coffee drink at Caribou on my birthday (I got a mint white chocolate mocha—total treat!)
A few plans for the rest of the week … My calendar is blank until Saturday. After the busy, stressful and emotional last few weeks, I am grateful for the quiet of this week. We are having friends for dinner on Saturday, who were recently married. We will be having Cuban black beans, rice and pork. It’s a favorite dish of mine … And my husband makes it remarkably well! I can’t wait!
Here are two pictures I am sharing with you …

Me and my mom

Pink Hibiscus—It was windy the day I took this photo, so I had to hold it … I will share more Florida flowers soon …

  1. Soooo pretty!

    Happy BIrthday!

    Your saints celebrating this feast day are St. Frances of Rome and St. Dominic Savio…google them!

  2. Happy Birthday! The pics are beautiful. We have snow again today, so the flower is a cheerful sign of the coming spring time.

  3. Happy Birthday. That hibiscus is gorgeous. I can’t wait to see the ones in HI. I’ll be posting flowers and birds all the time starting in June.
