It is a beautiful morning,the sun is brightly shining and it is 56 degrees outside and should reach 75 today. It doesn't get much better than that!

I have been spring cleaning this week, taking down and washing curtains, shampooing carpet,washing walls hanging pillows on the clothesline and opening the windows and letting the cool breeze blow through.

This morning when I woke up I could tell that I am not use to working this hard,my shoulders and legs ache, but thats o.k. when I have finished it will be well worth it.

I can then sit down with a nice cup of coffee or tea and feel good that my home is fresh and clean.

A Beautiful Morning

It is 8:45 on a beautiful Wednesday morning , the sun is shining and its about 49 degrees here, i just put my grandchildren on the bus and I am setting down with a cup of coffee to do what has become one of my favorite things,blogging.

I just read one from a woman in France, and wonder how would i have ever met or talked to someone in France if i had not found the world of blogging. Thank you Sophiemae for introducing me to this,I still have a lot to learn,but I am enjoying it immensely.

There are a lot of things going on in our world, some in my own family, that could cause us to be pessimistic but I have decided to be thankful for all the good things in my life and give those things i cannot control to the lord,so rather than worry about things today,I will be thankful for my 4 beautiful and healthy grandchildren,my husband,my home,family, church, friends,the robins and squirrels that are playing in my front yard right now.

Oh yes, the lime green curtains ended up in my grandaughters (7 year old) room.
I hung them up while she was at school ,she only had 2 windows so I had 2 extra panels which I used to make a swag over her vanity/dressers mirror.(A wonderful gift fromSophiemae) When she and her friend walked in the room after school they yelled AWESOME! pictures will come,hopefully.

I hope everyone has a great and thankful day!

The simple womans Daybook

Outside my window the sun is shining and its in the 70's, a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
I am writing on Sunday because my Monday mornings are so busy.
We had a wonderful church service this morning and then I took my 7 year old grandaughter and her friend to a chinese buffet for lunch, not my favorite place but thats what they wanted.
We are now back home and they are playing in the backyard while I have a nice cup of coffee in my "old Country Roses" cup and saucer and enjoy my blogging. My husband will soon be home from work and my grandson and sil will be here also so I am thinking about what I will have for dinner.I am thankful for my wonderful family and the life we share with each other.I am still wearing what I wore to church this morning a black lace sweater and brown long skirt and black pumps. Yesterday my grandaughter and I went to a near by town that is know for its antique stores . They were all having a sidewalk sale we shopped and ate at a little tea room,we had cuban sandwiches and spearmint tea it was wonderful. I am so happy to have a grandaughter that enjoys these thing neither of my daughters did. I bought an old aluminum cakepan and some beautiful lime green curtain panels with silver sparkes on them. I do not have a clue what I will do with them but I just had to have them.There are 6 panels and I have 3 windows in my family room so they will fit those windows but not match anything, I have 2 sage color chairs and a floral sofa of red pink yellow and sage, but I know I will find a way to use them somewhere.
Brittney found her a lovely hat for tea parties, rhinestone clips for her hair,she loves sparkly things just like her grandma. Hopefully I will soon learn how to post pictures so I can share those with you.My plans for the week are to declutter and continue to find ways to simplify life and enjoy the "simple pleasures"

Its been almost a month since my computer crashed and I have been unable to blog and I have certainly missed it. Today I have been reading and trying to catch up on things I have missed.
It is good to be back with you all. I Had all 4 of my grandchildren for a week,the 2 youngest went home today, 10 months and 3 years, my house is just too quite tonight.
Love and Prayers,
