My Simple Woman’s Daybook

I love reading my friend’s daybooks, so I decided to join in and hopefully you’ll enjoy reading mine!!

For Today… Monday October 19, 2009

Outside my window... It is a beautiful blue sky autumn day in Florida!  A lovely mild 65 degrees!

I am thinking... This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!! 

I am thankful for... My hubby’s Dr. appt. was trouble free!

 I am wearing... Blue jeans, white sweatshirt and my Crocs!

I am remembering... That perfection isn’t the necessary end to everything!

I am creating… A couple of handmade thank you cards.

I am going... To buy some groceries.

I am reading...Following God With All of Your Heart by Elizabeth George {because Liesa said it was so good and it is!} Thanks, Liesa!!

I am hoping... To get the valances for my family room sewn and hung!!

 On my mind... My lovely friend Lady Katherine and her surgery on Wednesday.

 Noticing that... The doggies in our lives are shedding quite a bit!!!

Pondering these words...

Success is living in such a way that you are using what God has given you--your intellect, abilities, and energy---to reach the purpose that He intends for your life.  **Elizabeth George

From the kitchen…
Homemade Creamy Squash Soup (didn’t get it done yesterday!) with crusty bread!  YUM!!!

Around the house... The wonderful aroma of my pumpkin cookie candle, cool breeze coming in the windows, and a full heart thankful for a lovely weekend.

One of my favorite things… Looking at other people’s outdoor fall decorations.

A few plans for the rest of the week…  schooling, sewing, potting some herbs

A picture thought I’m sharing…


Praying that your week is full of God’s best!!
Love ‘n hugs,



  1. Love that Becky! Just simple enjoyments. They're the best. It's definitely Fall here. Rainy, cool & lots of color. I'm crossing my fingers for a day full of yummy baking and a yummy casserole. Heaven!!!

    Have a great day dear!

    Love and hugs!!!

  2. Becky, I love these daybooks, too, and yours is certainly lovely! Enjoyed reading your thoughts and sending the love of the Lord right back in your direction...

  3. Becky, this is just wonderful. I love doing my daybook. It helps me focus on the things at hand and I love reading other people's as well. I'm a still in Utah and haven't had time to read any blogs lately. Just barely time to post on my blog for Jim to be caught up a little on what I have been doing.

    It sounds like you have some good plans for the week and I am glad Randy had a good Dr. Appt. My Jen is struggling in pretty much every way right now. I am just trying to help her get her head above water again. I am supposed to leave tomorrow but I am not sure that is happening yet.

    You are such a ray of sunshine in my life Becky...keep that light shining!

    Love you,


  4. Enjoyed your daybook, Becky! I like looking at other people's fall decorations, too. Have a great day! Karen

  5. Becky,

    I LOVE these women daybook posts. Yours was REALLY good. I especially liked the thing you are remembering.. that perfection is not the necessary end to everything..I have soo much to do today (and with hurting knees it is soo hard) that this is a great thought to carry me thanks for sharing that. I am having a hard time deciding which blog post gathering I want to participate in anymore, as they are all soo good. I chose another one this morning which I just discovered which is also great. I imagine eventually I am going to have to let some go that I want to do as it is certainly adding to my business, haha, but it is hard. Have a good day. Blessings to you, Debbie

  6. Enjoyed your daybook, dear friend! I really want to do one, but I always forget!

  7. Dear Becky, I love your list! Thank you for your sweet comments about our greenhouse setup:) Florida sounds so lovely. I would like to visit there some day!

  8. I truly enjoyed reading your Daybook thoughts--like having a little visit with you today Becky. It's the little things that make up the fabric and substance of our lives, isn't it?

  9. Very nice seeing what you're up to today! Hope you got the curtains done!

  10. Hi Becky! Hey- here I am reading YOUR daybook:) I didn't get one up today- hopefully tomorrow! Loved reading yours- you have such a sweet spirit for the Lord and those around you in life and here in bloggy world!:)

  12. That's a nice journal entry. Get to see what's on someone's noodle. Cute idea. Now what time is that creamy soup and crusty bread being served so I can catch a flight out of Kansas to Florida?
