The Simple Woman's Daybook, Monday, September 9, 2013

For today...Monday, September 9, 2013

Outside my is evening, dark and cold. We always know the weather will turn cold - and quickly - but it always seems to surprise us. It's early this year, too.

I am thinking...that I need to clean the heating vents to get the dust (and cat hair!) off of them before we turn on the furnace. I hope it's soon!

I am thankful...for God's faithfulness in so many things, large and small.

From the bean burgers for dinner!

I am wearing...a pink, floral top and a pair of shorts.

I am creating...a little more order in my pantry. :) I used an extra-large plastic magazine holder to hold the boxes of foil, plastic wrap, parchment paper, baggies, etc. I saw the idea on Pinterest and knew that it was just what I needed! You can see the Pinterest pin here.

I am try to remember not to have anything but water tonight since I have to fast for a blood test tomorrow morning to check my cholesterol level.

I am to better balance what I need to do around the house and the need to rest and not over-do because of the fibromyalgia.

I am hoping...and praying that my husband gets through his yearly 'first few weeks of both jobs' well. He is usually very tired for a while and then gets used to it. So far, so good this year.

I am hearing...times of quiet with an occasional car going by.

I am looking forward to...doing something else in the house this week. Yesterday was a hard day for me regarding fibromyalgia because of two meals I made. Then I did some housework this afternoon and made dinner tonight. I shouldn't plan on repeating that tomorrow. I will try to do more housework on Wednesday.

Around the's not too cool yet. I'm comfortable on the recliner with a light blanket over my legs and feet. :)

A favorite quote for today..."Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." ~unknown. We can't tell what someone is going through just by looking at him or her. Be kind! Be kind to yourself, too! :)

One of my favorite when a good breeze makes the fall leaves drop from the trees like snow! I love watching it!

A few plans for the rest of the and a regular week. Hoping to rest *and* be able to do some housework.

A picture thought I am sharing...

A pretty way to decorate with fall leaves!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

  1. You have a lovely blog. I notice that we have something in common...fibromyalgia. I'll be praying for you...determining what is too much often can be done only AFTER we've done too much. Bummer! But it does come easier after a while. Fly Lady helped me a lot after I was diagnosed. Her theory of anyone can do something for 15 minutes really worked for me. It was frustrating at first, but after a bit I started adding time to it.

    I pray you have a good night's sleep.
