The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my inch of ice in the yard and the thermometer reading -8

I am thinking... about having to go back to work tomorrow

I am thankful for... my nice warm house

I am wearing... the usual warm cords, pink polo neck sweater, angora socks

I am remembering... lots of things about my youngest son as I start to scan photos for his 21st birthday scrapbook.

I am going... to finish that scrapbook page I started at the beginning of the week.

I am currently reading... The Haunted Abbot by Peter Tremayne

I am hoping... we don't get too much snow this week (again!)

On my mind... family stuck up on their hill farm, at least we can still get the cars out.

Noticing that... I am obsessed with the weather lol!

Pondering these words... Low Fat!

From the kitchen... Leek and Potato Soup

Around the house... nearly all signs of Christmas have gone, just a few little bits lingering.

One of my favorite things~ Christmas cake and it's nearly all gone now.

From my picture journal... it's so cold that the loch (lake) in the next village has frozen over and people are skating and curling on it. This hasn't happened for a very long time.


  1. Great pic of the frozen lake! It's quite cold here too...12 degree and negative wind chills in the teens. We have a "snow day", school is closed.

    Enjoy your week!

  2. Lovely photo! And why not obsess on the weather when it is soooo cold! Thanks goodness we all have warm homes to tuck into ;) - Kathy
