{February} The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window .... the sun is shining, there is hardly a cloud in the sky and my youngest two are playing together after being apart all day.

I am thinking .... that I really must get my sleeping habits back in check

I am thankful .... that I learnt to cook well

In the kitchen .... is the aftermath of dinner. Apricot Chicken one of our family faves we don't have nearly often enough

I am wearing .... a basic tshirt, crop exercise pants and sneakers. Minus the bra! It is the end of the day after all!

I am creating .... a blanket for the 67 Blankets for Madiba Australian Chapter

I am going .... to be taking part in Jellywears first seasonal yarn club next month! So excited!

I am wondering .... what projects we'll be creating in the yarn club

I am reading .... about colouring soaps ready for when I start making again in a few weeks.

I am hoping .... that Brian's step grandfather doesn't suffer much longer.

I am looking forward to .... the cooler weather.

I am learning .... some new crochet stitches. Love how I can be doing a craft for 15 years and still learn something

I am pondering .... what flavours I'll bake with Herman this week

A favourite quote for today .... Start where you are, Use what you have, Do what you can - Arthur Ashe

One of my favourite things .... homemade vanilla bean ice cream

A few plans for the rest of the week ... finally start my Project Life album tomorrow, some more baking with Herman on Friday.

A peek into my day ....

We went foraging for blackberries. 
This last batch was turned into jam.

I altered a basic notebook to keep track of all my Herman experiments.

Linking up with The February edition of The Simple Woman's Daybook.

  1. What is baking with Herman? Popped in from SWDB for February. Just curious.

    1. Hi Hilary, thanks for stopping by
      Herman is a sourdough cake starter. Also called Amish friendship cake.
      As with all sourdough it's super good for your gut and digestion.
      I blogged about it here :)
