Just for Today

diary_and_penOnce a month I like to take a few moments to just linger in the present moment. So today I am linking up with other ladies at “The Simple Woman’s Daybook” site.

Sometimes we are way too busy thinking about and doing things for the future that we skip right past the present. I don’t know about  you but I do not want to skip past the precious moments of today. I want to take the time to slow down and focus on the simple things and good things in my life.  It is good to linger and reflect on the simple things of this life.


Outside my window… it is cloudy and rainy. I think we have had more than our fair share of rain for this year.

I am thinking… it is so nice to have a three day weekend. Even though school  has only been back in session for 4 weeks it seems like an eternity.

I am thankful… for the health of my husband and children.

In the kitchen… Cheeseburger pie is for dinner, and the day will be spent organizing the cabinets. For some reason dishes never get put back where they belong, so the cabinets are a mess.

I am wearing… GYM clothing. Getting ready to hit the gym.

I am going… to get some things organized in this house over the next few days.

I am wondering… if the PT exercises are really going to help with my knee pain management.

I am reading… Under the Dome. It is so much different than the television series.

I am hoping… that the next two weeks pass quickly. I am so ready for vacation.

I am looking forward to… just two more weeks and we will be on vacation. Ready for some time with family that is uninterupted by work.

I am learning… about hidden food allegeries. I have had to eliminate several items from my diet in order to find out which items are causing me issues. So not fun. I miss cheese.

Around the house… things are quiet and peaceful. Just like I like it. A house full of peace and harmony.

A favorite quote for today… “People with fitness goals succeed because they know where they’re going.” ~ Felicity Luckey

One of my favorite things…curling up with a nice cup of hot tea while reading a good book.

A few plans for the rest of the week… nothing much going on this week. We are having dinner with some dear friends later in the week and will spend some time helping them pack as they are moving in just a few weeks.

A peek into my day… no photo for today… maybe next time.


Would you like to linger on the simple things…then join me and many others in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those who are focusing on simplicity…beauty of the everyday moments visit The Simple Woman’s Daybook hosted by Peggy Hostetler.

    I think I am enjoying the series more than I did the book. I usually don’t feel that way. Thanks for sharing your day.

    I am just starting the book, so not sure yet which I will enjoy more. Usually I like the books more.

  3. I enjoyed visiting you today through Simpl Woman’s Daybook. You have a very nice place and I hope to get around to browse about a bit more.
