The Simple Woman’s Daybook—March 23

The Simple Woman’s Daybook—March 23

For today … Monday, March 23, 2009

Outside my window … rainy and windy

I am thinking … about how overwhelmed I feel about my to-do list

I am thankful for … Lent and the focused time God gives us each year to sacrifice and draw closer to Him in His suffering

From the kitchen … I have to get to the grocery store soon! hopefully, I can scrounge up something for dinner. (I usually have a plan, really!)

I am wearing … rusty orange hoodie with matching pants, white T-shirt, striped socks

I am reading … Lent and Easter Wisdom From G.K. Chesterton
I am hoping … to attend my parish’s reconciliation service tomorrow night; there will be 17 priests available to hear confessions! it is always a beautiful evening.

I am creating … a cleaner, more organized home
I am hearing … 3-year-old and twins enjoying snacks; girl twin chatting; boy twin bouncing in his highchair
Around the house … the playroom is on the agenda today (such a daunting task!) and there is some laundry to plug away at

One of my favorite things … the fresh smell of bedding hung out to dry in the spring air. Mmmm …

A few plans for the rest of the week … continue working on my Lenten/spring cleaning; register for my knitting class (a birthday gift from dh and kids) and pick out my yarn at the needle arts shop; attend a benefit spaghetti dinner for a family of my parish (the mom is really struggling with health issues and they are raising money to hire childcare for the kids); scrapbooking Friday night with some friends
Here is a picture-thought I am sharing with you …

One year ago today was Easter Sunday. Remember how early it was last year? As you can see, we held our neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt on our snow-covered lawns. The white stuff and cold temps didn’t stop these kids from participating in the festivities! Hopefully, it will be something they’ll never forget; I know I won’t!

  1. I know I would remember a snowy egg hunt. Not very spring-like, huh?

    Your to-do list is a lot. Can you imagine how great it would be to get that all done? What an accomplishment. For me, I don’t know that I could keep up the pace. Although thi sis the time of year that gets me purging and cleaning too.

    Good luck!

  2. i hear ya about feeling overwhelmed. while the deep cleaning is getting done-it seems like the other stuff is piling up! hang in there-i guess…
    you pray for me and i’ll pray for you!

  3. Allison, I’m not sure I’ll be able to keep up the pace either, but I will do my best!

    Regan, yes, let’s pray for each other!

    God bless both of you, dear ladies!

  4. I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. I’m always trying to come up with a better plan for getting things done. Praying that we can all take on our plans!

    WOW … snow last year! Hopefully you won’t get that this year.
