Simple Woman's Day Book

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

1 Chronicles 16:34 (NIV)

Today Peggy at The Simple Woman hosts the Monday meme The Simple Woman's Daybook.
Here's my entry for today.

Outside My Window...horses munching on grain. We have been worried about our old horse he is loosing so much weight. So much that people have stopped and even called the sheriff. He is 27 years old. Very old in horse years. Even our daughters riding instructor (who btw is married to a vet) told us that all the horses that were from the school and all her friends horses have already died. I am sorry I am venting here. But it is annoying when you get a knock on the door to see the sheriff and there is a round bale outside, a full tank of water etc. Anyway we went to the feed store oh I forgot to mention the grain the horse was eating was recommended by the vet. Anyway we went to the feed store and talked to the owner who we have known for 10 years or more. He suggested another kind of feed. That was two weeks ago. Well this morning the horse was trotting around and almost knocking me down. So much so I had to make Daisy stay out of the pasture! Now this is the polite horse that always minds. But it made me smile to see him so frisky.

I am thinking... that was a lot to write in one little entry. Sorry.
I am thankful for... for the above and that Buck is feeling friskier. I am thankful that I get to see our grandson almost everyday. I am thankful that he gets to go to church.
From the kitchen... gosh haven't even thought about that yet. I think I will try biscuits again. I'll have to definitely write a post about that one. Maybe Friday some people write funny things then! today it is funny. The story I'll share later wasn't so funny when it happened! I'll give you a hint
flat biscuits and a smart aleck husband.
I am wearing... a lovely little ensemble..(hehe I must be as frisky as the horse!) sorry. Navy capri workout pants with red and white stripe (bought for our one and only cruise) and a red t-shirt and white socks. Already lost the shoes I wore outside. Which btw were not boots. Don't do as I do
I am creating... A blog for our grandsons. And I am preparing to sell fabric on my other blog. So if you are a seamstress please stay tuned. I'll have dressmaker fabric, craft fabric and quilting fabric. Yardage and kits.
I am going... I am going to pick up a desk and a canoe bookshelf for our grandson. It is a hand me down from one of my daughters riding students.
I think the shelf will go in Texas Grandpa's(Cowboy) "man/boy" room. The desk will go in the master next to the crib to use as a changing table. It is getting harded and harder to change the baby in the livingroom on the ottoman. So this should work better especially when the house is full of people.
I am reading... The same book I was last week.
I am hoping... that my daughter gets the job she applied for.
That is why I didn't read much I spent most of last week keeping the baby while she either went looking or sat on the computer looking for a job. She found one and has applied. It is with our state in the juvenile corrections part. And the Blessing would be she would be working with us. It is at the office where we take the sacks of groceries.
I am hearing... the news on the t.v. talking about evacuee's leaving North Texas to return to Galveston. If you have been watching the news it is not really as they let us think. I spoke to one of our mentee's last night who I haven't talked to in too many days. The roof in her apartment collapsed on Fri. night she returned from work to find out she couldn't get in. Her Guinea pigs are still there. She is trying to call the humane society today to get them because the apartment would not let her in. She had to go and buy some clothes to wear to work over the weekend. She has been at a friends. She is 19 and her birthday was on the 13th so it was an ordeal for her instead of the party that was planned for her.
There is still much disaster in areas of Houston. Please pray for these people.
Around the house... Chaos. We spent so much time with our daughter last week that I didn't get much cleaning done. I did the bathrooms yesterday so all I have to do today is vacuum and just pick up. And clean off the computer desk. It appears to be a catch all.
One of my favorite things... I wrote about this yesterday after praying about it and confessing to God. But one of my favorite things is my blog and my friends that I have found through blogging. Some of you don't even know how much I enjoy reading your blogs. Now don't think I am a lurker. I do leave comments. But just realize if I leave more than a couple of comments on your blog, then you can count on the fact that you are one of my favorites. See the photo below it is for you.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: normal schedule. But back to my Sunday post. I am working toward getting closer to God. And spending more quiet time.
Being Still time. So that I can rest and find refuge in God's arms. And so that I can seek him and his plans for me.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
I love flowers. I love to have flowers in my home and outside. I want to share this bouquet with you. Please copy it and post on your blog it is my gift to you today.
Thanks for visiting! Have a Blessed week.

WOW! Amazing what a change in diet can do! I'm glad your horse is feeling better! What did you tell the sheriff?

I love fabric. it's a weakness.

I love flowers, too! My family owned a flower shop and I miss working with them (I don't miss the customer service part). Thanks for sharing!
