SWD And Birthday Wishes

I thought I'd do a shortened version of an old meme called the Simple Woman's Daybook that I used to do. I haven't done one in so long I figured it would be fun to do again.

Outside my window... it's 1:00 AM and dark.

I am thinking... about my granddaughter for today is her birthday. I miss her as she lives in Texas.

I am wearing... a knit tunic, slacks and slipper sandals right now. (I don't wear shoes in the apartment).

I am creating... this post entry right now.

I am going... to try and get some sleep after I finish writing this and putting it online.

I am looking forward to... tomorrow afternoon playing hand and foot cards with my sister Louise.

Around the apartment... Nothing to do as I do my household chores early in the morning, every morning. It's easy when you live alone.

One of my favorite things... To do is relax with a cup of coffee and maybe create some new graphics or write a poem or read a book.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Aside from Monday cards I'm not sure yet as one sister is a "snow bird" gone south until April and the rest of the family are doing their own thing. Winter is not very active for me.

Birthday wishes and photo... for my granddaughter with a poem I wrote for her.


Remembering back to a beautiful little girl
And of picking her up to give her a whirl.

Giggling out loud as her arms hold on tight
Around the room we both take off in flight.

Now looking at photos of times gone by
Remembering those days with a soft sigh.

Those happy days as she spent time with me
Now miles apart as the years swiftly flee.

And seeing her photos now a mom all grown
With a hubby and four adorable sons of her own.

She calls every weekend to tell me what's new
And always asks, "what's happening with you?"

Then ending the call with "I love you"
She answers with, "And I love you too".

Not much else to post and so dear friends have a day of blessings.


  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet grand daughter! What a lovely poem. Right now my house is a mess with sorted piles and boxes. I hate to have my surroundings a mess. It will be this way for another couple of months. Have a good time Monday with your card games.

  2. I use to do this meme. It was one of my favorites!
    Happy Birthday to your Granddaughter.

  3. So beautiful! You are quite the poet! That is such a wonderful gift! Your grandchildren have been blessed to have such a grandmother as you! I pray you are having a blessed and peaceful and warm day, safe and cozy in your home. God bless you!

  4. The blog looks lovely and your family is beautiful. It is so wonderful how they keep in touch with you.
    Family is so important.
    As always I love reading your poems because they just bring a complete picture to my mind.
    Have a good time with your sister and a wonderful Sunday my friend.
