Simple Woman




Outside my window...

Izzy trying to convince Miss C. that it's okay to plug your nose when you put your face in the water! Especially when you're only 2 years old!

I am thinking...
about the great gentleman in our parish who died about a week ago.  He was a devout Catholic, a loving husband, good father, and cherished grandfather. He also was not afraid of technology and wrote frequently in online forums and even had his own Facebook Page.

A few years ago, after his wife's funeral, he introduced me to a friend of his, and he gave me a great compliment. I'll decline sharing that with you here, mostly because I don't feel worthy of it. But I'm still glad he said it and it's something that I try every day to live up to.

I am thankful...
for the examples from the generations ahead of mine - and I appreciate the more and more as time goes by.

In the kitchen...
Ribs in the crock pot with sauce.

I am wearing...
A denim dress with embroidered front that is one of my favorites. I just pull it over my head and go!

I am pondering...
Noah's first week of college. My head is swimming with all of the information I have read about paying for college and getting scholarships etc.

But it also seems that he had a very good first week running with the cross country team, and he made friends in other parts of the school in all of the Opening Weekend Activities - so I am very excited about his future.

Also - he only used 1/2 a tank of gas after driving 30 minutes away six days in a row!!  Much cheaper that dorm room expenses!

I am going...

I am reading...

    A quote to share...

    “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” 
    ― Calvin Coolidge

    Wonderful photos :) I've considered the Wheat Belly program, too.
    Have a great week!
