Simple Woman's Daybook for September 28th

Outside my window…6:07 and dark, windy and cool.

I am thinking…about too many things this morning! Loose ends to tie up, bills to pay, chores that have been put off for too long...How I wish I could magically bring everything up-to-date and have a nice fresh start!

I am thankful for…a fairly relaxing Sunday. We stayed a long time after Mass visiting with friends and at home Gemma had a decent nap so that I could work on one of my projects.

From the kitchen...Okay, I'll admit it. We are all sick of muffins. Today it will be egg and sausage breakfast burritos since we have tons of sausage from our last pig and the chickens seem to be laying a bit better again (I think they are coming out of a long molting period!)

I am creating…Una's sweater. Started on the second half of the front. I do hope to be done with it by the end of October, but that may be pushing it...

I am reading…I don't read much other than my Bible and books for school these days. I keep telling myself that one day the kids will be grown and there will be plenty of time to read.

I am hoping...for this interminable bug to leave my friend Marilyn's home! And for God's grace to get a lot done next week. We are taking off after 6 weeks of school so that I may form a goal-list for the next six weeks and restock my freezer with broth, breads and a few meals.

I am hearing…Sebastian and Gabriel quietly playing in the living room.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Other than school, trying to squeeze in a few moments for my projects; order ink for the printer (Agh! I bought ink in July and I'm out again!), attend Mass on Friday.

I am praying...For my mother to stay well so that nothing spoils her trip to Rome next week! And I continue to pray for work for Bret. He is finishing up his second altar, this one for Our Lady of the Caves in Horse Cave, KY, and I don't know what he will be doing when it is finished.

A Picture Thought: a few days ago we had a visit from a neighbor we'd never formally met. This is a shot of Andy and Doc (Doc is the one without a hat). It's nice to live in a place where people occasionally come past your house on horseback or, as in the case with our Mennonite neighbors, in buggies.

Now go and visit Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook to read some more entries.


  1. Do you have plans for Saint Michael's Feast Day? It is coming up tomorrow, and I was looking around for ideas.

  2. Thanks so much for the thoughts and prayers. At least Miss Anna has had it mildly thus far.
