The Simple Woman's Daybook - Sept. 1

Hi everyone, come on in and see what's in my daybook!

If you want to join in, just got visit Peggy over at The Simple Woman, read the guidelines here and then add your name to Mr Linky. There are so many other participants sharing their day, I'm sure you'll enjoy looking through them :)


Outside my Window
...cloudy skies and wind

I am thinking...that I can't believe my computer gave me the blue screen of death again, I'm sick and tired of fixing it.

I am thankful for...the fact that even though the computer messed up, I am blessed to HAVE a computer of my own.

From the kitchen...for breakfast we had bacon, maple sausages, biscuits and gravy. For dinner it's Corned Beef Hash

I am wearing... blue lounger dress

I am reading...Beyond the Highland Mist by Karen Marie Moning

I am hoping...that I get more of my Advent Calendar pockets done today

I am hearing... The dishwasher buzzing in the background, Curtis typing on the computer, the kids cleaning their rooms

Around the house... the scent of Vanilla Honey candles, pugs laying on the couches napping, laundry waiting to be put away

One of my favorite things...sleeping to the sound of rain

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Meet the Teacher nights for Jasmine and Nicholas

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...


  1. Hi Sandra,
    Vanilla honey candles...mmmm, I bet they smell good! What kind are they? I have been burning a gardenia votive from Seda's good, but pretty strong so a little goes a long way!
    Have a blessed day!

  2. Kelly, I actually picked these up at Walmart, they're from this brand called FarmStand and they come in the cutest little containers. They smell SO SO good.

  3. Candles sound really good for a day like today. I'm going to dig some scented ones out now!

  4. Eeeek! The blue screen of death! Again!!

    Happy September...

Thanks for stopping by my blog too.

  14. Your breakfast sounds great! I love breakfast. I love all the food pics on your sidebar. Those milk tartlets looke delish!

  15. Your family are so fortunate, they eat so well.....
    did not get to make milk tart but we did get koeksysters.

  16. Sleeping to the sound of rain is one of my MOST favorites things in the world!! We had biscuits and gravy for breakfast too!! :) Have a great week.

    Sorry to hear about your computer woes...but God know's what you need and He will provide you a new one... just look to him.

    I enjoyed your daybook entry too.. .and I love the pictures of your cottage on your blog header (If that is your cottage). Your blog is very sweet.

    Be blessed.

  18. Enjoyed your blog, and loved the pictures. I live in a lovely English country cottage ( in the lovely English weather) and if you are visiting UK sometime it would be good to see you.

  19. Vanilla candles sound good to me on a grey rainy London day. My Mac started to misbehave last week - almost unheard of but I also reminded myself that I'm lucky to have a computer all for me! :)

  20. Hi Sandra.

  21. Hi Sandra,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. By the time I got home from work last night, I was exhausted! No computer time for me...I pretty much went straight to bed!

    I really enjoyed your recipe photos. I LOVE to cook and try new recipes. I must try the pumpkin pancakes! Thanks for sharing your day and looking forward to hearing more. :-)

  22. Ah, hearing the rain while sleeping is so therapeutic! It's one of my favorites too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a blessed week!


  23. I love the smell of vanilla and honey together yum.

  24. I love the picture. Also the vanilla candle is one of my favorite scents. I need to go get some more yankee candles.

  25. Hi Sandra! I'm getting caught up on all the Daybooks from yesterday. :) I'm glad someone else asked about the Vanilla Honey candles---they sound so cozy and homey; I think I'll see if they have them at my local Wally's next time I'm there!

    I'm sure glad it's lunchtime. Looking at all the food pictures on your sidebar is making me hungry!

    Have a terrific week!

  26. Wonderful daybook! Hope you all have a great week.

  27. Thank you for visiting my Daybook. I'll be tuning in tomorrow! I loved your photo, too. So serene. :-)

    And how awesome that you like "The Secret Garden." I have the exact same CD!
