April 6th Edition of The Simple Woman's Daybook

These writing prompts are available from Simple Woman's Daybook where each Monday we're invited to join in celebrating the beauty of everyday moments around us.

FOR TODAY ...
the eve before Monday, April 6th

Outside my window...
Night has fallen and I can still see the glow of the snow on the ground, although its edges have shrunk back after a full day of spring sunshine. The shadows of the thirty year old trees rock in the breeze and I wonder where our busy squirrels sleep at night.

I am thinking...
I have written more in the last week than I have in months and it feels good. I feel like I'm where I have always wanted to be.

I am thankful for...
my husband and the patience and support he has shown me this past week.

From the kitchen...
all the ingredients are laid out to make gluten-casein free banana chocolate chip muffins for tomorrow morning. Tonight there is nothing out to eat.. because I'm sticking to my plan and there is no snacking after 7pm.

I am wearing...
fuzzy PJ bottoms and an old, overstretched long sleeved t

I am creating...
a new vision for myself. I feel like I have made some big life decisions and acted on them in the last several weeks. I'm excited about the future.

I am going...
to "stick to the plan"

I am reading...
"The Book of Negroes" by Lawrence Hill for my book group and "Healing and Preventing Autism" by Jenny McCarthy & Jerry Kartzinel

I am hoping...
that this week is less stressful than the last.

I am hearing...
silence. And loving it.

Around the house...
piles of clutter on every possible surface that will never shrink. As soon as it is put away, it is soon replaced by more.

One of my favorite things...
my bed that waits for me upstairs. It is King-sized with a pillow top mattress with the perfect shade of blue sheets and pillows that are calling to me now.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
to get through it without losing my temper. House needs to be cleaned from top to bottom in anticipation of our house guests who arrive on Friday!!! (Dana and Emily).

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
my hometown of Bowmanville. Because I'm feeling kinda homesick and I'm wishing I had an icy glass of Hard Apple Cider from Archibald's. A not-unusual feeling at this time of night.
