My Simple Woman Daybook For February

The past two days I have been so busy the past couple of days that I didn't have a chance to write this before now. 

So here goes.

For Today

Looking out my window and seeing the parking lot of the hair salon I'm at. You see it's time to get my hair done. I have to say I like the view out my home so much better

I am thinking about doing a 5k, walking not running. I was never a runner. Cycling was my thing when younger. 

I am thankful for a strong heart yesterday I had a treadmill stress test and all is good. And I have no reason to get out and exercise like I had in the past. The pain in my chest is from another reason. Looking at some sort of indigestion problem.

One of my favorite things is my morning cup of coffee. 

I am sewing on Words to Live By quilt. I'm in the home stretch. I will be so pleased when I'm done, it has taken me awhile to get this far.

I am wearing .. Black yoga pants with a black knit sweater. It had cooled down some today. Yesterday it was in the 70's and today the 40's. Go figure.

I am reading is the Hidden Life of Trees.  Since I was young my fondness has always been trees. I love to grow anything but there is nothing more awe inspiring than a tree

I am watching too much MNBC. 

I am hoping to go to Ree Drummond Merc tomorrow.

I am learning how to meditate, well more like how to make meditation a part of my life. I have done some but I have come to realize there is so much to it then what I have done. And I'm excited to experience more.

In my kitchen is the addition of a new dishwasher. Right before the holidays the old one decided it was going to stop working. Perfect timing, right. Gone all this time without it and I was fine with that for the most part but seeing how I was going to have surgery and not use my hands that for a brief time, the man of the place didn't want to have to do dishes so he commanded I replace it. That's the kind of command I can tolerate.

In my garden is still just bare ground. I hear it calling me. 

"A weed is a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered" Ralph Waldo Emerson 



  1. Indeed it must have taken you awhile to get that far. That quilt is an amazing feet to conquer and is so beautiful!

  2. the chest pain is something I went to the doctor about 5 years ago and found out it was heart burn from undetermined causes - and cost a bit to get that diagnosis! hope you hand surgery is scheduled soon and get it done. nice dish washer - funny how it gets replaced quickly when He might have to do dishes LOL 50's here today but I heard it will warm back up

  3. It is the little things, isn't it? My hubby gave me a new pair of yoga pants for Xmas and I was surprised because I already had two pairs. When I asked him why, he said I always put them on when I get home from work and obviously needed some more. He also gave me money to buy another 2 pair. Now, I have 5 pair and I don't even do yoga, but I sure love the comfy pants! My doctor also told me I had heartburn for two plus years and she was wrong, my gallbladder was full of stones. As so as it was out, I was perfect!

  4. Mt heartburn was indeed a gallbladder problem that needed surgery. Loving the stunning quilt. I did smile about the dishwasher.

  5. Words to Live By is coming along beautifully! Congrats on being so close to a finish. Hope you find the source of your chest pains. I went through that several years ago and again just recently. Those stress tests are no fun, but it's good that it's not your heart. It's amazing how many other things it can be.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
