Tuesday's Simple Woman's Daybook

I thought I'd do a shortened version of the Simple Woman's Daybook for today. I haven't done one in awhile so here goes.


Outside my window... it's 5:00 am and dark and quiet. Street lights are still on. We had such strong storms yesterday that did damage around the area. The rain and wind along with thunder and lightening was so forceful you couldn't see your hands in front of your face. More than 1,600 people lost power after heavy rain, wind and thunderstorms pummeled Columbia County on Monday afternoon. Thank goodness I didn't.

I am thinking... about my Tai Chi exercise class I had yesterday. It was fun with 10 other women participating and I'll be participating every Monday and Wednesday morning. The instructor is a woman named Jenna. She was patient, friendly and so easy to follow. Tai Chi is such a graceful and peaceful exercise and those who couldn't stand too long were able to sit or hold on to a chair for balance. It's an 8 week course and I'm looking forward to participating. I'm surprised as how much I enjoyed it.

I am wearing... a comfortable knit tunic, slacks and slipper sandals right now.

I am creating... this post entry right now. I'm happy with my new blog and graphics.

I am going... to try and get some sleep after I finish writing this and putting it online. I seem to be sleeping less and less lately.

I am looking forward to... tomorrow's exercise. Not much else planned

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. Right now I'm reading another Mary Higgins Clark mystery titled I've got you under my skin.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Aside from Monday cards with my sisters  (we played last night)  and tomorrow's exercise I have nothing really planned. I'll just wait and see what turns up.

Today's photo... is a just because I like it. LOL!


Hmmm, just noticed I lost all my followers. Pretty please dear friends follow my blog again. Not much else to post and so dear friends have a day of blessings.


  1. Good morning Toni! I love your new name and how it looks in here! Glad you like the Tai Chi, I thought it sounded like fun! Enjoy your week my friend!

  2. Good Morning...I really need to get going, but you know...its summer...lazy days (giggling). I hear ya on the storms, you must of got ours. It is summer after all, sigh.

  3. Oh, thank you for the reminder to follow your new blog! You might want to make that announcement with each post for a while! I'm glad you enjoyed your Tai Chi class. Sounds like good exercise! I love your new blog...and am looking forward to all of the Treasures you will discover and share with us here! Enjoy your week. Glad the bad weather didn't hurt you! Take care my friend!!

  4. It's nice that you like the tai chi.
    Storms not too bad here after all but then again in South Jersey we get Delaware/Maryland/Virginia weather.
    I like the new title,but then again I've liked them all.
    I just really like the header though. Comfy and inviting.
    Oh, before I forget. I was sleeping less and less and my doctor sent me for a sleep study. I was not breathing during the night and so it made sleep difficult. I was given a Cpap machine and I sleep like a baby now.
    Just an fyi in case.

    1. I went through sleep study Annie but that's not the problem. I have been like this all my life. As a youngster my mom would call me her human alarm clock LOL! I woke up early in the morning. Thank you for your compliments. I had this title years ago on one of my many websites.


I so look forward to your comment as I appreciate your visit here. Today and always, I am thankful for your warm welcome and for being a friend to me. I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you dear friends, my heart has no bottom.
