Open House....

I found this "daybook" type meme on this charming little blog that I love to read. I don't think she has done any of these in awhile but  I think I will start doing this once a week. I hope you can join in! 


I am wearing... .my favorite Cruel Girl Jeans, a black v-neck t-shirt, silver & black hoops in my ears, silver & gold flip-flops, wedding rings, Brighton Heart watch, my Montana Silversmith Rose ring and full make-up. (And, of course, sunglasses on top of my head! I know my little sister is laughing reading this!) (I felt bad yesterday and stayed in my pj's all day. Today I got up and got dressed. Still feeling a little puny but the clothes actually made me feel happier!) =)

I am listening to...  SILENCE....ALL 3 children are taking a blessed blessed wonderful nap!!!

I am reading... Some Fancy Nancy to the girls...Angelina Ballerina to the girls...The Ministry of Motherhood...So Long Insecurity but I am antsy, I have read all of my books and made notes and now I am ready for another book!! I am a total bookworm...absolutely ♥ books! =)

I am looking forward to...  my visit with my sister and her sweet little family. My niece's baby shower and family coming in from Maine.

I am thinking... about babies. =) 

In the kitchen:  Homemade chicken & dumplin's 

In the yard/garden...
.  GORGEOUS spring flowers all over my yard (will have to post a picture this week!!) and, we are working on our garden!!! Can't wait to start canning and freezing veggies!!

Praying for... my babies to be over this sickness soon! More sleep tonight for me. We are praying most especially, for a little boy we know who has severe health problems. 

Thankful for... Jesus. Healthy children except for occasional sickness. Healthy husband. My health. A lovely home. The ability to be a stay at home wife and mother. Our wonderful marriage of almost 12 years. Sweet precious hugs from my beautiful children.

Here's a picture I am sharing with you!:

Hi Julie! I love doing the Simple Woman's Daybook - it makes us take time to reflect on the simple things.

Loved your post! What a sweet picture of you & your children. I hope that everyone in your home is over the little bug now...not fun having little ones that don't feel well. Have a blessed week Julie! Hugs
