A Simple Woman’s Daybook Post…

For Today…

Tuesday, October 4, 2016.


Looking out my window…

I’m still enjoying my windmill and all of the flowers surrounding it.  We received 2 1/2 inches of wonderful rain, yesterday, and it was much needed!  I couldn’t even remember the last time it had rained.

I am thinking…

How nice it was not to have to water all of my flowers, this morning!  Thanks to yesterday’s rain, they were still nice and moist. I love my flowers, but it’s a chore to keep them all watered.

I’m also thinking how much Ed and I enjoyed visiting, yesterday, with the former pastor (and his wife) of the last church we attended.  He and his wife are really nice and we always enjoy our time together.  He’s currently serving as a supply pastor, and waiting on God to lead him to his next church.

I am thankful…

for a lot of things, but, at the moment, I’m most thankful that my back is feeling better!  It makes the day SO much better when I can bend and move without pain.

One of my favorite things…

is this time of the year.  I love it when the mornings and evenings are cool, but the afternoons warm up nicely. October has always been one of my favorite months.

I am wearing…

a blue/white checked nightgown (lazy morning)

I am creating…
some fall floral arrangements.  This arrangement actually serves a dual purpose.  In addition to being decorative, it lights the walkway at night.


I am watching…

a few of the new fall shows on television.  So far, we’ve watched “Designated Survivor” and “Bull”.  I like “Designated Survivor” because I’m a fan of Keifer Sutherland.  I’m still deciding what I think about “Bull”, but an interesting fact about the show is that it was co-created by Dr. Phil McGraw.

I am hoping…

God will show us where our new church home is supposed to be.  We’ve been joining our son’s weekly service at a local assisted living home, and visiting around some. I’ve come to look forward to those sweet services at ‘the home’, and have developed a fondness in my heart for the residents we worship with each week.

I am learning…

to have more patience than I’ve had in my entire life…  Learning to wait on God.

In my kitchen…

I cooked ham, butterbeans, cheesy mashed potatoes, and peach cobbler for supper, last night.

In my garden…

Ed planted some cabbage, lettuce, carrots, and radishes, last week.  We will plant some mustard and turnip greens as soon as the ground dries out a little more.  After this week, our fall peas will be gone.  I should be glad, but, actually, I’ll be a little sad.

Shared Quote…
“All that I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

A moment from my day…


the windmill and flower garden

Closing Notes:
I haven’t been able to sit for long periods of time, so I haven’t been on the computer much during the past week.  I’ve spent most of the past week moving from the chair to the couch to the bed, due to my aching bottom. I’m feeling much better now, and am so glad my surgery is behind me.  I’ll get the stitches removed tomorrow.

Many thanks to Peggy Hostetler for hosting Simple Woman’s Daybook.

  1. I sure enjoyed catching up with you here! Your windmill flower garden looks amazing! We’re still waiting for cooler evenings and mornings. Maybe by the end of the month! Glad you bottom is better and good luck tomorrow! It always feels better getting stitches out, no matter where they might be!

  2. That’s a great Emerson quote! Love all the photos and a wee glimpse into your days, thank you 🙂

  3. Love the Emerson quote. Fall DOES tempt us to lazy, cozy mornings. Good news! Your back is better. Haven’t seen Designated Survivor, but I think it looks intriguing.
    Visiting from SWDB. Happy October!

  4. The Emerson quote is so wonderful! Thank you!

  5. Glad your back is better and i’m wishing you a speedy recuperation from the recent surgery. My son was on storm duty in the Savannah area for Matthew. Hope you suffered no damage in your inland location.
