Simple Woman's Daybook

August 4, 2008

Outside My Window...

It's a clear, sunny, hot day

I am thinking...

About our fellowship last night with a new couple coming to our church

I am thankful for...

Getting to hear my husband preach yesterday morning - a treat for me!

From the kitchen...

Leftovers from the weekend today

I am wearing...

A black knee-length skirt and a green polo shirt

I am creating...

Probably pick up my dress again this evening

I am going...

To take Beth to a friend's Sweet 16 party this afternoon

I am reading...

On Writing Well and Shadows over Stonewycke

I am hoping...

That the weather won't get quite as hot as it's predicted to this week!

I am hearing...

Cars whooshing by on the highway (that's what I hear every week - I need to play some music or something)

Around the house...

Extra cleaning for the college tour group coming this weekend

One of my favorite things...

A yummy hand cream from Bath & Body Works

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week . . .

Preparing for Friend Day at our church

Here is a picture thought I am sharing . . .

For more Daybook entries, please visit The Simple Woman.


  1. That picture looks so peaceful!
    Enjoy your week

  2. Hi, I came here from The Simple Woman's Daybook.

    Your photo looks so peacefull, a great place to sip coffee/tea and talk with a good friend while soaking up God's handiwork.


  3. Zinnser's book "On Writing Well" is a really good book! I've reread that one several times.

  4. Thanks for sharing..

    we are dealing with heat too..only ours is Texas style. :/

  5. I read the Stonewycke Trilogy years ago and really enjoyed them. :)

  6. Faith, my dh took that picture as I was standing on the balcony of our vacation suite. It was so calm and peaceful there! Thanks for stopping by!

    Elaine, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment! I did go out and have a cup of coffee on that balcony, and it was great!

    Terri, I had never heard of Zinsser, but I found his book at the library. I love his writing style - so much hidden humor!

    Marye, I do not envy you your Texas heat. We lived there 14 years, and that's one thing I don't miss at all! Thanks for stopping by!

    Mrs. C, this book is the second in the trilogy. I don't know where I got it, but it's been on my bookcase for a while, so I decided to read it. Now I'm feeling the "need" to get the rest of the trilogy! ;)

  7. I read the Stonewycke trilogy years ago and loved it. I'd love to revisit it some time. I should read more books on writing, too.

  8. These are so much fun!
    I love the picture, very nice!

  9. Hi susan
    I love your thoughtful picture. Your verandah looks so fresh and white. What were thinking of??Perhaps happy thoughts???
    Your thankful list was just lovely.

  10. Barbara, this is the first book on writing that I've read since my senior Advanced Comp. class. That's been a LONG time! LOL It's also made me very self-conscious about how I write now; I don't know if that's good or bad.

    Tori, I love to read all these things that ladies are doing each week. They motivate me!

    Sandra, I just wish this were my verandah! My husband and I were at the shore on a short vacation last week, and he snapped that pic as I stood one morning. I was thinking how much I wished we could move there! ;) Thanks for stopping by!

  11. Hi Susan,

    I wanted to stop by and say hello. I was reading some of your past posts and stumbled on the one where you changed your sending church to Bro Capaci's church. We just had a singing group from Champion Baptist College at our church 3 weeks ago. They were a blessing and the message from the preacher that accompanied them was just tremendous. It was about pastors and how we as a congregation should stand behind our pastor. I tell you, it hit home with me and I don't think there was a dry eye in there when it was all said and done.

    Just wanted to share that with you :o)


  12. Laura, I'm so glad you stopped by and left a comment! What a blessing the group was from Champion. The singing groups from these colleges are doing a great job across the country, singing and promoting their chosen schools. God bless!

  13. Love the picture you shared. So peaceful.

    Tag you're it!

  14. Thanks, Deanna! It sure was peaceful. I told Wes yesterday that I wish we could go back already.

    You captioned the photo "a picture thought" and I found that very appropriate. The picture makes one wonder...." what she is thinking about....". What is that old saying..."a picture is worth a thousand words" or something like that? This is that kind of picture. Blessings...v from n. Idaho

  16. What a wonderful, unique post this was! You told about your whole day in those short lines of writing - brilliant!

  17. Thanks, V, for your kind words! I could have stood there forever, I think!

    Mary, thanks for stopping by. I love doing the Simple Woman posts; they're so easy to use to sum up a day or week.

  18. hey this is ben just wanted to
