A Simple Mama Daybook

Today, Monday,  April 11, 2011  The Feast of St. Margaret d'Youville,

Outside my window... It's a cool spring day.  Rain cloud are hanging over head.  

I am thinking… About my neighbor.  She is very ill and nearing the end of her life.  Please offer an Ave for a happy death?  We will be praying the chaplet of Divine Mercy for her @ 2:00pm  for her if anyone would like to join us.   It is times like this when the Communion of Saints becomes so evident. 

From the kitchen… Considering the price of gas,  our meals will be pretty basic for awhile.  I have beans soaking right now. 

I am wearing… A khaki skirt, brown, red, blue and green striped quarter length sweater,  and new red open toe Birks that my mother gave me.

I am creating…  I purchased the yarn to make swing cardigans for Molly and Greta.  I hope to have them done for Easter. 

I am reading… Boys Should be Boys by Meg Meeker on the recommendation of some friends.

I am hearing…Dishes being done in the kitchen,  Molly humming,  Nick and Gabe arguing. 
One of my favorite things... My husband.  Okay,  so he's not a 'thing'.  But, he is absolutely my favorite person/place/thing ever. 

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… We are officially into our ten day inspection period on the farmhouse.  We  have a family friend that is a general contractor,  he will be going through it with Tony sometime this week.  We will also be having the septic pumped and inspected.  I am really looking forward to spending more time over there. 
Here is picture thought I am sharing…Sammy's Slash impression! LOL!


  1. I'm honestly curious, has he ever heard guns n roses? Does he know who Slash is? Tell him from his Aunt Jenny that "he rocks!!". LOL

  2. Um, yeah. He's heard Guns n Roses and he's seen video of Slash --- remember he has a 16 year old brother...
