The Simple Woman's Daybook . . .
FOR TODAY, June 23, 2015
Outside my window ...
It's very overcast. Not as light out this morning. It was very showery off and on all day yesterday. A real mixed bag and I thought it was quite cold last evening . . . well, for June at any rate.
I am thinking ...
As a church we were recently counselled that the days were coming that we would need enough courage to stand alone against the tide of popular public opinion and beneath the scrutiny of Political Correctness. That day has come.
I am thankful for ...
The Gift of the Holy Ghost which is with me always and helps me to know the right from the wrong.
In the kitchen ...
Homemade "Salad" Dressing. Similar to Miracle Whip. Easy to make. Economical too. Delicious. It comes together in seconds.
On my "To Cook" List ...
From Whole and Heavenly Oven, Copycat King's Hawaiian Bread Rolls. These look really good.
I am Creating ...
I love this Billy Ball Pillow. There is a step by step Tutorial on Front + Main.
I think these crochet Ballerina Flats are really cute. The full pattern on Ravelry.
This is just one sheet of the six free sheets of printable labels which are available on The Digital Bakery.
Tutti Frutti Pot Holders. Simple to make and I think quite cute. From Craft Gawker.
ADORABLE. That is what I think of this Minion Pin Cushion. Found on Lady Joyceley.
I am reading ...
Anne of Green Gables, by L. M. Montgomery.
I have seen the film. I have seen the musical play. I had never read the book.
"Anne, an eleven-year-old orphan, is sent by mistake to live with a lonely, middle-aged brother and sister on a Prince Edward Island farm and proceeds to make an indelible impression on everyone around her."
I've been to the house the Book was based on, and seen the Lake of Shining Waters. I thought it was more than about time to read the inspiration which all of these things were based on. Childish perhaps . . . but I don't think it hurts to feed your inner child now and again.
I am hoping ...
That I can collect more of these Puffin In Bloom Classic Novels. I think the next one I am going to save for will be Heidi. I adored that story as a child.
Makes me smile ...
This little red headed grandson of mine. He's enjoying some pizza out with his dad. I think you are probably smiling now. All he wants for Christmas is his two front teeth. Love him to bits.
I am learning ...
That more often than not, the people who should love and accept you are the ones who don't. Sad but true.
Around the house ...
How to make Leaf Stepping Stones for the garden. A complete Tutorial on Dream Garden 101.
11 Plants that Repel Mosquitoes. Plant Care Today.
The Right Way to Store Lemons. From The Glamorous Housewife.
Miracle Pan Release. From Love Bakes Good Cakes.
Outdoor Tuna Can Lanterns. From In My Own Style.
I am pondering ...
What does my family really think of me and do I really want to know??
A favourite Quote of the day ...
`*.¸.*´Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ¸.•´¸.•~♥♥♥~•.~ ღϠ₡ღ¸.
"True Love is an act of the will. A conscious decision to do what is best for the other
person instead of for ourselves."
One of my favourite things ...
Butterflies. They are not as common as what they used to be.
A Peek into my Day ...
I feed and exercise my spirit every day. If you don't use it, you lose it.
And that's my daybook for this week!
