Daybook Post: Week of April 27th

Decorative Succulents in the Garden

*Daybook posts  used to be one of my favorite types of posts to write. I am re-visiting that today.

**********

For Today... the week of April 27th.

Outside my window...

it is early in the morning, and it is still dark outside.  I am headed to the flea market in a few minutes where I hope to stay away from cookbooks!

I am thinking...

that writing blog posts requires a rhythm, and I am not quite there yet.  The space bar on my laptop isn’t working which means every single sentence I type has to be corrected. I have decided it’s a test.
I have also decided it is time to leave it at Best Buy, where I hope it acts as badly for them as it does for me- so I don’t sound crazy.

I am thankful...

that I ,for the most part, can create my own schedule.
After teaching for 32 years, I value TIME to do what I want to do when I want to do it- which isn’t always the case- but it is enough of the time.

I am wearing...

a knit nightgown from guess where?  Ross.  
For those of you who used to sew, remember the Make it Tonight Wear it Tomorrow patterns designed for double knit fabric? 

Even if I get rid of this favorite nightgown, it will never self destruct. Knit never does.


I am creating...

a pile of things to take to my daughter and grandsons at the end of May.  I miss them terribly.

I am wondering...

why NPR radio changed their morning program line-up.  It used to be so soothing and interesting to listen to Bob Edwards and others ease us into the day with interesting real life journalistic feature stories.  Now there is a program with someone loud and people speaking over each other. 

I do not want to hear what the journalist thinks- I want to hear what the guest thinks.

In my garden...

things are blooming! Plus I have more garden spiders this year than ever before.  I am constantly walking into cob webs that wrap around my neck- which then causes me to run around screaming.  You get the picture.


In my kitchen...

I hope my husband will cook supper tonight.

I really enjoyed reading this! I love to know about someone's day. I've found, with blogging, to treat it like a job. Though, since you've retired, you might not want to do that. I just naturally know I'm going to post every day, and that's a morning thing. I just stick to a schedule because I love writing.

I always enjoy a Daybook post and you made me laugh over the double knit. Brought back memories of all the double knit leisure suits Hubby had and the pants suits I had. Goodness! Enjoyable post!

I haven't done a DAYBOOK post in such a long time.
I remember when everybody was doing them, it seemed!

Your's was sweet to read.

I am at 20 years of teaching and I am already thinking about more time to do what I want! I have a few more years to go.

I too am addicted to cookbooks. I can read them like a novel!

I've just spent some time reading past posts and I have enjoyed them. I love your gentle, easy going writing style. We are both former teachers with three lovely daughters. We are both grandmothers. I'm so glad you found me so I could follow you back here and never miss a lovely post!
And - my oldest grandsons, 6 year old twins, are also "baseball players." So, my heart just melted when I saw the picture of yours, wondering how soon you could be there to join him!

Don't ask me to pick which I love the most...Daybook, Dear Daughters, or Ranch Recipes. I love them all equally for they are written straight from the heart.
BTW...we all become Ninja warriors when encountering webbing in the great outdoors!

I love this kind of a post. It's what I call an "over the back fence" chat about the dailies of life. I also appreciated you encourager post earlier in the week. It's such a good thing to be intentional about.
