My DayBook

For Today:  Monday, May 18th, 2015

Outside My Window:  It's partly cloudy and I see lots of weeds in my front garden.

I Am Thinking:  I've got to go to Walmart for a couple things this morning.

I Am Thankful:  For Kerry, my handyman.  He is coming tomorrow to help me weed and to build me                            two more raised garden boxes for more veggies.
In The Kitchen:  I can hear the dishwasher running.

I Am Wearing:  Jeans and a blue short sleeved T and of course my garden clogs.

I Am Creating:  Another post for today besides this one.

I Am Going:  To Walmart in a little bit.

I Am Reading:  Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover".

I Am Hoping:  To get myself on a budget from above book!

I Am Looking Forward To:  Going to the barn and taking a riding lesson Thursday.

I Am Hearing:  The constant faint sound of lawn mowing on the golf course.

Around the House:  It's pretty quiet, dogs are napping after their run outside.  The clutter is still                                           here!!

I Am Pondering:  Whether I'm too old to start vlogging on YouTube!!!

One of my Favorite Things:  My iPhone, mostly because it means I have a camera with me every                                                      minute of the day!

Plans for the Rest of the Week:  Working in the garden with Kerry tomorrow, riding lesson on                                                                 Thursday and a massage that day too!

A Photo To Share:  My son and Linda and my two grandkids at Ava's 1st communion.
 Taken by my daughter Michele, the photographer.

Have a great day everyone!

  1. At least you have a plan, if you will carry it out. I just take one day at the time and hope for the best.

  2. I too have thought about vlogging... but don't think I could actually do it! Cute family!! I too love my iPhone and that I don't have to lug around a camera! Have a great week!

  3. Stopping by for Simple Woman's Daybook! I've been doing it every other week but decided I missed out on too many great posts! Thanks for sharing yours, Shirley! Excited to see her "new link up" on June 1st!!

  4. Hello Mrs.Shirley...My name is Renee
    I found your blog through
    I enjoyed your day book a lot..

    Blessings,Renee @

  5. I've thought about vlogging as well - maybe in addition to blogging but not in place of. I think there are a lot of us older gals that have wisdom to pass on that the ones coming after us might want. It's just that I don't care what I look like blogging - vlogging would be a whole different ball game! Congrats on the first communion!

  6. Dave Ramsey is so good!
    What a beautiful family photo..
    Hope you have a wonderful week! :)

  7. I think this is my first visit to your blog. I, too, am a retired RN. However, I am raising two teenage grandchildren. So they live with me in my bubble! I don't think we are ever to old to do anything. LOL Good luck with vlogging. Wish I had someone coming to help me pull weeds. Sigh!

  8. My first time here, I'm visiting from The Simple Woman.

    First, what a lovely family. Second, why would you be too old to vlog on You Tube? I'm sure you could do it!
