The Simple Woman's Daybook . . .

FOR TODAY, September 20th, 2016

Outside my window ...
It's still dark, but the sun is beginning to show on the horizon with light appearing just above the tops of the houses to the front of us.   The clocks will be going back an hour soon.  It seems like it hasn't been all that long since they swept forward an hour, but time is racing, so no surprise there!

I am thinking ...
Todd has his Doctor's appointment this morning.  I am hoping all is well.   Please say a little prayer for him.  Thanks so much!

In the Kitchen ...

Hot Turkey Taco Salad.  Using the turkey leftover from the roast turkey breast, but you can use fresh ground turkey also.  It's delicious either way.

On my "To Cook" list ...

From the Recipe Critic, Five Minute, Million Dollar Dip.  This looks incredibly delicious!

Good to know ...


How to become a morning person.  From The Office Caveman.

I am creating ...

 DIY Mini Pocket Notebook from a cereal box.  Found on Creme De La Craft.


DIY Cable Cosy.  From  Live it, Love it, Make it.


Epsom Salt Luminaries.  From Remodelando Casa.


Snowman Salt and Pepper Shakers from Debbie Doos.  Easy.

I am reading ...

One Thousand White Women, the Journals of May Dodd, by Jim Fergus

One Thousand White Women is the story of May Dodd and a colourful assembly of pioneer women who, under the auspices of the U.S. government, travel to the western prairies in 1875 to intermarry among the Cheyenne Indians. The covert and controversial "Brides for Indians" program, launched by the administration of Ulysses S. Grant, is intended to help assimilate the Indians into the white man's world. Toward that end May and her friends embark upon the adventure of their lifetime. Jim Fergus has so vividly depicted the American West that it is as if these diaries are a capsule in time.

I love books with historical backgrounds. This is fascinating.

I am looking forward to ...
We are invited to some friends for lunch today.  Looking forward to the break and change of scenery!

I am learning to ...
Bite my tongue.  The older I get, the harder it is!  What's up with that?

  3. Good morning Marie. I pray that Todd's visit to the doctor goes very well. I hope that lunch goes very well for you. Have fun.

    Today Beth had to travel across town to the dentist. Then she had to get a specialist x-ray and tomorrow on to the orthodontist. After that we went to Costco. Beth was majorly amazed at the size of the packages etc. Some of the stuff was a great deal and others not.

    I have never heard of that program of women being brides for the native Americans. I think I need to look for it. I wonder if it is in our library system.

    God bless.

  4. I really am not looking forward to the time change. We fall back an hour and loose that precious daylight in the evenings. It seems all I can do to stay awake past 9 o'clock as it is. When the days are short and the nights so long all I want to do is hibernate.

  5. That girl with the slver hair♥

    So pretty..
    lots of neat things here..love how you are always inspired..and inspiring!

  6. Thanks Kate! It turns out he has high cholesterol. So some changes are needed. He is as thin as a rail! But still has high cholesterol. Same with my mom! HOpe all is well in your world. xoxo

    Thanks Suzan, lunch was lovely. Costco does have super large packages. We don't belong, but I wish we did! Oh, and do check the book out at the local library if they have it. You will enjoy.xoxo

    I am not looking forward to the time changes either Pam! I wish they wouldn't do it! xoxo

    Thanks Monique, I love that silver hair also. I wish! xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
