The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today



Looking Out My Window
It was hot today.  I think the weatherman said it's been in the 90s for the past 60 days.  Is it Oct yet??

I am thinking
about planning a road trip.  It's been a LONG time since we went on one and wanderlust is kicking into gear.  I've added a travel column to the budget.

I am thankful
that my kids still like to hang out with me.  We went to the mall last night to return some stuff and get #1 Son some pants.  AND we went geocaching!  I havent logged a cache since the end of February.




We had such a good time! I really want to remember days like this because I know they wont last forever.

I am wearing
a REALLY old sleep shirt

I am creating
garbage.  No really.  I'm slowly going thru piles in the apt and am amazed at what I still have



I thought twice abt getting rid of these magazines because I still want to read them.  However when I realized that I packed and moved them TWICE, it was time for them to go.  They are actually sitting on the cou…

For Today



Looking out my window

We have been having heavy rain showers every afternoon.  Nothing like Louisiana, but drenching nonetheless.
I am thinking that I like the older version of the Daybook better than the revised one.  I made some changes in the post back to one I used back in 2015.
I am thankful That I have a job.  That I have a working car.  That my kids are healthy. My job can be boring (on a daily basis), but it allows me the flexibility to take time off for family.  I drive a car as old as #1 Son and we have to share it, but it works.  My kids can make me crazy, but they are turning into productive humans.  Life may not be where I imagined it would be at almost 50, but it's SOO much better than it could be  

I am wearing A Mickey Mouse night shirt.  It's long, down to my knees, and I've been know to drive Baby Girl to school while wearing it.  
I am creating

Socks.   I have turned the heel and will be starting the decreases for the foot next.  
I am reading (read) …

What's on the Needles on a Saturday Afternoon

What's been going on??

This....








It's no wonder I'm getting nothing done.  However I cleared the schedule for the afternoon and decided to look at what projects I've got on the needles.  In no particular order....

1.Sweet Georgia Brown Socks
I started these back in May of 2014.  I am on the heel of the second sock.  It NEEDS to be done before the end of this year.
2.TV blanket

I started this around Oct of 2015 (I think) I cant seem to find a start date, I'm just going by what I've written down before and after it in my notebook.  I have 18" done in a 60" blanket.  I did literally one row today.  It's still too warm to keep it on my lap.  AND it holds on to floating cat hair.  But it's soft so I will continue with it.
3.Curvy Girl Cabled Cardigan
I started this in July 2015.  The back was done by Oct.  That's as far as I got.  Add the fact that we didnt get much of a winter either, there was no incentive to continue with a very heavy sweate…
