The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window: the robins and the blue tits are fighting over the food.

I am thinking: why aren't my horses outside? It's only rain.

I am thankful for: my desk. I read on a forum recently that lots of people have so little room they have to craft on the sofa. That would drive me bonkers.

From the Learning Rooms: More practise with my Sizzix Bigshot.

I am wearing: brown cords and a black sweatshirt, mucking out gear. What happened to carefully colour-co-ordinated me?!

I am reading: Perfect Manners by Kelly Marks. Still not sure...

I am hoping: to collect some fresh eggs today.

On my mind: There is no bread left in the freezer.

From the kitchen: What on earth am I supposed to do with this huge piece of braising steak? Delia, help me!

I am creating: sweet little cards using Forever Friends decoupage.

I am hearing: the rain drumming on the roof.

Noticing that: this room looks so much bigger now the Christmas decorations are all down and packed away.

Around the house: I have so much laundry to do.

One of my favourite things: 'Starting Your Day Right' by Joyce Meyer. So uplifting.

A Scripture thought: The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want...

A picture thought:

My darling youngest grandson, Caelan.


  1. I imagine your clothing was perfectly color coordinated with the stuff you were handling while mucking out...

    What did you do with the braising steak? I'm thinking shredded beef for enchiladas...

  2. Oh Jane your grandson is gorgeous and Ive no doubt the apple of your eye.
    Now the braising steak, I would pop it in a casserole with onions, carrots, mushrooms and gravy and cook in the oven for an hour, then serve with veggies, and baked potatoes in the jackets, yummy. With lvoe and hugs Shirleyxxx
