From Mary's journal....Monday, March 22, 2010
Good morning, from Ontario.

We had a beautiful week for the kids' March Break. It was in the 70s several days. On Friday the temperatures dropped, but not so much to spoil the weekend.
Outside my is a gray, overcast day. Snow flurries ae predicted.

I am mint green robe.

From the kitchen....a little Raisin Bran cereal this morning. One of my favorites.

I am thinking...about all I have to do today.

I am thankful for....many things. A roof over my head, food on the table.

One year ago today...I was with the boys. They were on Spring Break and we had a lot of fun together. This year I only saw them one day of March Break because their mother isn't working. We went to the sugar bush.

On my prayer list....Denise from OK, Denise & Eddie, Grams and many others.

I am creating.....crocheting dish cloths right now. I love home made dish cloths. So absorbent and you can make them any size you want.

I am reading.....Daisy Chain by Mary DeMuth. This is the second time I've read it. Very similar theme to Harper's Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird."

I am work on my projects today and do laundry.

I am hearing....the furnace running. The house is very quiet. Hubby and Dakota are sleeping.

Pondering these words... Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. by Plato. This is a quote that everyone in the world should take literally.

I am hoping....that my Etsy store will continue to be successful. It's doing great. I'm very busy and am happy with something to keep my time occupied.

Around the house... hoping to get working on the kitchen again soon.

A few plans for the rest of the week....creating a few things, household chores and a bit of time to relax.

One of my favorite things.....keeping busy. I am not one to sit or lie around. I'm the type of person who needs to be on the move.

So that is what I'm doing with my time. I have visited a few of you and will try to visit more in the coming week. Take care and have a wonderful week.


  1. I didn't spend any time with Wonder Boy and the Princess during Spring break either. They spent the week at the House of Mouse. They're back. I'm wondering if the Princess might come over on the bus today.
    Raisin Bran is the only cereal I'll eat with milk on it. Maybe I'll have some tomorrow morning.
    It is still raining ice out there. "Who stole Spring?" I know it isn't officially Spring yet but almost. I was loving the warmer temperatures. This just makes me want to curl up and read.
    Well, the sheets are almost dry and I need to try and get them on the bed.
    Have a good week, my friend.

  2. Enjoyed your daybook sweetie. I love you, and appreciate your prayers.

  3. Congrats on the the 2 lbs and glad to hear your Esty store is doing great. Loved the way you did this post which gave us a small glimpse into your world. Peace
    PS Love the new look of your blog.

  4. I was blessed to have five of our grandchildren here for Spring break. We used to get all eight. As they get older the numbers dwindle.

    Let me recommend THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett if you haven't already read it. It is guaranteed to be a favorite.

    Just a little hello from my part of the U.S! Hope your doing well. School has been busy, I look forward to the end of the semester! Please take care,Lori

  6. Starting your day right with Raisin Bran. I should but am having coffee instead. But it's decaf! LOL
    I understand you not liking to sit around. I keep busy too and even at night when I'm too tired to be physical, I do some kind of hand work while I watch news or whatever.
    Our temps have been warmer but we are getting rain today which always makes me want to curl yop with a warm blanket and a good book. Right now I am reading The Singing God by Sam Storms. A fascinating book.

    Take care dear friend
