The SImple Woman's Daybook

Outside My Window ... HOME! It's been a wonderful 2 weeks away, but it is good to be home now.

***

I am listening to...just started a Netflix movie, No Greater Love; recommended by Ignatius Press.

***

To Live the Liturgy...Mass this Wednesday with our Parish, Mass to celebrate our 4th Anniversary later this week, sound ministry over the weekend.

***

To be Fit and Happy...Started our new exercise routine. Three days a week, I put dinner in the crockpot so I can go use the elliptical when DH can watch Pearl after work. Then we trade and I finish dinner prep while he gets his workout in. Then when he walks back we can sit down to dinner together.

***

I am thankful for...coming home. Getting back into our rhythms again.

***

From the kitchen ... searching for some creative spark.

***

I am wearing...pj's.

***

I am creating ...Fall plans. How to celebrate the liturgical year, autumn traditions, family visits, etc.

***

I am reading... Hitler, the War, and the Pope.
***

I am pondering...some radical ideas.

***

I am hoping for...wisdom discerning those radical ideas.

***

On Keeping Home... Some big plans forthcoming to re-do Pearl's room. She can climb out of her crib now, so we're ready to move her to a twin bed close to the floor. It'll take some getting used to, but I think it will be a good thing overall. She is getting to be so big.

***

One of my favorite things ... warm sheets fresh from the dryer.

***

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:

Helping to care for my FIL after he has foot surgery this week. Please say a prayer for him!

Welcome home!

Prayers for your FIL coming right up! Asking for some help from Saint Servatus, the foot patron.
