I spotted The Simple Womans Daybook over on Our Front Plot in the run up to Christmas and thought it was lovely idea for a regular blog post, the idea of it was to give thanks to the simple things in life in the run up the festive period.
I did think about joining in when I first saw it but forgot as soon as I left the computer so I have decided to add my own tweak to the idea and instead of posting once a week in December I am going to post on the first day of each month meaning that the simple things I am thankful for will change with the days and pasting seasons throughout the year too. I am going to call it ‘A Day in the Month’ as I don’t want to steal someone elses hard thought up name and this will be similar but different; let me know if you have taken part in The Simple Woman’s Daybook or would like to join me with this as I would love to read what others have written.
Outside… It is dark and wet
I am thinking or plotting… What needs to be done tomorrow before going back to work next week after being off; washing, more packing and outside animal and garden jobs
From the kitchen… We have just eaten omelette with chips and coleslaw, all homemade, for dinner
I am wearing… Animal clothes, my fleecy grey Millennium Volunteers jumper (which I got for completing 100 hours of volunteer work years ago), black leggings and odd socks
I am thankfully for… All the pans I collected this evening from a local freecycler and the kitcheny things, lamp and table that a friend gave us this morning. Among other things
I am creating… A mess, and hopefully some mittens
I am going… Nowhere, I’m home for the evening now
I am reading… Grow your own magazine and You are your childs first teacher by Rahima Baldwin
I am hoping… That the rain holds off on Monday, there is a big protest rally about the possible local wood land sell off here
I am hearing… The cats playing and Rhys watching the Christmas Dr. Who on Iplayer
Here is a picture I want to sharing and why… This is a photo I took at the allotments on Christmas day, it is of my neighbouring plot and I love the way crisp, deep snow covering everything looks and the shadow that the chair and garden fork are throwing
