bonin farm daybook

Outside my window... ~the frogs are singing and the birds are chirping, and the first crows of the morning from Mike...my very own symphony of nature.

I am thinking... ~that life is what you make and that i am thrilled i learned that lesson.

I am thankful for... ~repentance.

I am wearing... ~black yoga pants, tiffany blue tee.

I am remembering... ~my book club that met on my birthday. how beautiful they made it for me...complete with my mother's signature cake. can't think of a better bday cake!

I am going... ~for my yearly well check this morning. just might have to stop by the book store on the way home.

I am currently reading... ~Coop by Michael Perry 

Reading Aloud...~ Stuart Little by E. B. White
(Sawyer choice and is LOVING it)

I am hoping... ~Jordan to do well at his golf tourney today. Cameron to have a productive day. Sawyer to continue loving learning.

On my mind... ~finding and keeping balance. being a better mother, wife and friend.

Noticing that... ~simplicity makes me happy.

Pondering these words... In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.  
Robert Frost

In the kitchen... ~bread is baking for breakfast.

Creating...~pillows from bank bags i thrifted and Valentine fun

Around the house... ~all are asleep and quiet. Kevin left for work an hour ago. i am having some quiet time.

One of my favorite things ~snuggles.

From my picture journal...


  1. Lovely. Frogs singing and birds chirping! Such a world away from here where I look out my window at 2 feet of snow and more on the way. Looking forward to hearing the peepers this spring, but trying to enjoy the coziness of winter.

  2. What a wonderful daybook! I love how you answer various questions and prompts, some simple, some much more complex.

    Love the cake picture -- yum yum and Happy Birthday!


    p.s. the frogs and birds crack me up -- out my window I hear the cold, cold wind!!

  3. i just started Coop this morning and i'm already in love with it. and simplicity...yes indeed, it's such a good thing!
