The Simple Woman's Daybook {January Edition}

For Today

Looking out my window... a cold and raw rain is arriving.

I am thinking... about my word of the year

I am thankful... for those sweet little texts from my daughter on her work break, reminding me to use her ipod and where the charger is if I need it when I get on my mat.

One of my favorite things... those now and then material things that make you smile. 
(my son has great taste for his mommy and Vera no less)

I am wearing... brown leggings, long-sleeve dark jade tee and an open-front brown tunic

I am creating... ideas for some new fat quarters I bought before Christmas...I needed some blues.

I am watching... Gilmore Girls

I am reading... The 22-Day Revolution by Marco Borges

I am listening to... this one as I reflect on the man I married six children ago and our future together and how that will look, even through the trying times

(we had just met a few weeks earlier, he had just nipped my toe with his boot and was awkwardly trying to figure out why this girl was interested in this Amish-raised boy ~ June 1981)

I am hoping... to find a few more boxes of things I no longer need. The Minimalists have inspired me to take it up another notch...yes, even this dejunker extraordinaire!!

I am learning... new embroidery stitches and joining fun this challenge

In the kitchen... currently three sauteed meals that are my favorites; red cabbage with chick-peas, sliced brussel sprouts with roasted cannellini beans, sliced broccoli with grape tomatoes

shared from my pinterest board  "i am wearing" since this is the year of the tunic and leggings for me (I noticed that my entire board is nearly just that!)
