Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY (Monday, October 19th)

Outside my window... it's a beautiful fall day. The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the air is crisp. I love days like this.

I am wondering... if anyone actually reads my simple woman's daybook when I participate in it.

I am thankful for... friends who share my passion for scrapbooking. I enjy spending time with them either cropping, shopping, or just chatting. I'm blessed.

From the scrapbook room ... I spent the day at a crop on Saturday. I didn't get as much done as I could have, but I had a great day laughing and chatting. I even got my bags all unpacked and all my stuff organized and put away again.

From the kitchen... Satay chicken noodles. Yum!!

I am wearing... my usual Monday morning yoga pants and top, with a green sweater over top.

I am creating... I just finished my menu box to hold my weekly menus and recipies. I will post pictures later.

I am going... To the Chiropractor shortly. I think it's making a difference. I haven't woke up with a sore back in a week.

I am reading... nothing right now. I've been wondering if I should pick up Twilight and see what all the fuss is about.

I am hoping...

I am hearing... the news on the television. Can you believe the Balloon Boy story?? What do you think, hoax or no? It sure sounds like it's a hoax.

Around the house... It's time to get painting again ... especially before things get busy for Christmas.

One of my favorite things... looking out both the window in the family room, and my scraproom, and seeing the big tree right outside with the bright golden leaves ... especially when the sun is shining on it. Beautiful!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Same old, same old around here. Driving boys around, cooking, cleaning, laundry. Nothing exciting.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
This was for a challenge where I had to use both bling and a heart on a page. That's a challenge with teenage boy pages.

  1. I've been wondering the same thing about the Twilight series - then I think about all the great classics I haven't even read yet!! I think I should give those first priority. I love yoga pants on Monday too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. Enjoyed reading your daybook. I especially liked the piano theory. I've made a note to add that to my blog this week. Thanks.

  3. Thanks for stopping by and I was wondering that same thing. This is only my 2nd time participating. It's fun but when life gets busy it's hard to remember all these little things to do.

  4. Your dinner sounds yummy!

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my daybook post..

    Have a nice week!

  5. Thanks for sharing :) It get's hard when we are busy.

  6. Just found your blog.
    I LOVE your header info. I find it very refreshings.
    Love your day book entry.
    God Bless

  7. Wow wow wow, I love how you worked the bling and heart onto that very masculine page. :)

    And yes, I read your posts... and I love them. Every time I see this on your blog, I think I should give it a try. :)

  8. Alas, the buble boy story was a hoax. How sad to use small children like that. I love your scrapbook page. I use to do that until my health got too bad. I like using a menu box. It's easy to rotate the meals. I hope you have a wonderful week. Doylene

  9. Well, I read your daybook. I'm jealous of your Monday attire.
