Simple Woman’s Daybook
Looking out my window
I see a bit of snow on the ground! Winter is having its last (I hope) hurrah! I’m so ready for spring.
I am thinking
About the lack of sleep I got last night. Sadly, our family has been passing Norovirus around and I’ve been quite sick the past few days. I’m also remembering that it’s April Fool’s Day and hoping no one is planning to try and prank me. As much as I love holidays, this is one I’m not that enthusiastic about.
I am thankful
For a sneak preview of a new cozy mystery called Queens of Mystery on AcornTV! I’m quite taken with the charm of cozy British mysteries but have run out of new things to watch. Although it doesn’t actually premiere until April 8th, they released the first episode on their Facebook page. It was a lovely treat at any time but when not feeling well, it was most welcome.
One of my favorite things
Honest Magic Balm. It’s not available yet in Canada so I’ve been rationing myself a bit but this stuff is amazing. I use it for nearly everything and anything to do with my skin and it makes such an improvement.
I am creating
I am wearing
Pink panda pajama pants and a baggy black t-shirt. The t-shirt used to say “Nevertheless she persisted” on it but that has faded away. It’s still the most comfortable t-shirt ever though so I continue to wear it, especially when I need to feel cozy and comfortable. I would also be wearing gray wool socks (you know the kind with the red stripe at the top?) but Walter doesn’t seem to like for me to wear socks and he is always taking them off my feet.
I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to
I am hoping
I hate to dwell on being sick but man oh man, I am hoping this goes away soon. Each time I think I’m getting better, it knocks me flat again. Having Norovirus on top of Crohn’s makes things a little trickier. I just want some energy again. In the meantime, I am allowing myself time each day to just indulge in some R and R – reading, watching movies, napping.
I am learning
In my kitchen
In the school room
We don’t have any school age kids in the house but watching Walter learn new things each and every day brings me such joy. Recently instead of saying “yeah”, he has said “Bes” (yes) a couple of times instead and it’s so stinkin’ cute! He also has started, when noticing my books sitting on the table, to look at them, smile, and say “No” while shaking his head. He’s acknowledging that he understands they aren’t things for him to play with but seems to accept that quite cheerfully!
In my garden
A moment from my day
I just love the little curl sticking out above his ear. Reminds me of his mama when she was little. Look at the hint of an impish grin there too.
