~ a simple womens daybook~

I was over at Owlhaven and was inspired to join Mary in the Simple Women Daybook..
for today...


Outside my window… sunshine streaming through towering fir trees...dappled shade on the lawn.


I am thinking… about the amazing bonds of women and the beauty of relationships


I am watching… my kiddos bound around the house doing their morning chores and being all around silly


I am thankful for… my life in every way....the challenges I have faced that have brought me here, the people with whom I get to share this journey, being a mother


From the kitchen… crepes leftover from Eden's 11th birthday...thawing on the counter for supper tonight. the question: do we fill them with fruit and yogurt or steamed veggies and cheese sauce??


I am wearing… brown well worn gaucho's, a brown t-shirt and a super soft grey v-neck sweater


I am reading… Eragon to my daughter Eden (whilst daddy reads Franklin and dr.Seuss to the wee ones) for myself: African Ark: People and Ancient Cultures of Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa (Hardcover) by Carol Beckwith, Angela Fisher and Graham Hancock AND Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese


I am praying… for my Dad as he journeys through his battle with lung cancer. Also for patience and strength for those families who are waiting to pass court so that they can be together forever.


I am creating…costuming for my dance performance tomorrow at the Canada Day celebration


I am looking forward to…Going to Vancouver with my family to be with my Dad while he undergoes surgery.
