There Was An Owl

We went to Pasadena the other day for Mr D to get some things he needed from Academy.  When we were leaving he ask me if there was any place I would like to go while we were in the area.
 
Well, does a frog sit on a lily pad?  Of course ~ there's several stores I would like to visit.  Let me see..eeny, meeny, miney, mo, which one of my favorites shall I go?
 
I decided on Marshall's, they carry a lot of overstocked inventory from some of the 'finer' stores.  It was eye candy for sure.  As I walked up and down each aisle looking and touching, my eyes saw what I knew I had to have.

A new coffee mug!
He's so cute!

 
There was an owl

who lived in an oak.

The more he heard,

the less he spoke;

the less he spoke,

the more he heard-

Why can't we be

like that wise old bird?


I hope you're smiling. 

Thanks for visiting today.

Until Next Time

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Proverbs 17:22

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Join me for:
The Simple Woman's Daybook

TODAY...
 
Outside my window...
I see the dogbabies playing and hear them barking too!

I am thinking...
About my Momma, she's 100 years old and sometimes she doesn't remember who I am.  But I'll always know who she is.
Here she is at 95, holding her great, great granddaughter.

I am thankful...
For the loving God I serve.

In the kitchen...
I have so many new recipes I want to try...I need a trip to the grocery store!

I am wearing...
Still in my pj's...you can do that when you retire.

I am creating...
Several projects right now.  I really need to finish a cross stitch I started before Thanksgiving.

I am going...
To heaven some sweet day.
What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

 
I am wondering...
If it's going to be warm enough to turn on the A/C today.  Crazy Texas weather, we go from winter to summer in a matter of minutes!
 
I am reading...
Just started reading this book, I think it's going to be a good read.
 
I am hoping...
To go junkin' this week.  We haven't been in while, it's so much fun.

I am looking forward to...
The next family 'get-together.'  I love when all the family is together.  4 great kids, 3 awesome son-in-laws, 9 special grandchildren and 6 beautiful great grandchildren.  A couple of sweet girlfriends and a boyfriend too.

I am learning....
Patience, my special word for 2015. 
Time to slow down and smell the roses.

Around the house...
It needs a good cleaning, maybe spring cleaning a little early.

I am pondering...
How to handle a very touchy situation.  Let me say, I'm praying as I ponder.

A favorite quote for today...
 “If you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. If you look at God you'll be at rest."
Corrie ten Boom

One of my favorite things...
There is so many things I enjoy, it's hard to pick a favorite.  I know at the top of my list ~ a good Bible study with my girls or friends or both.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Go be with Momma ~ love
Buy groceries ~ don't love
Go junkin' ~ love
Doctor's appointment ~ don't love
and whatever else comes along.

A peek into my day...
The best part of my day is the mornings.  Mr D and I get our coffee and laptops and sit in our recliners and just be together ~ commenting on different issues and sharing our heart.

My picture for the day was taken just a few blocks from our home.

Until Next Time
It's the simple things in life that mean so much.
