The Simple Woman's Daybook May 3, 2018

For Today May 3, 2018
 The Simple Woman's Daybook was started right here. Take a look.

Looking out my window it's dark and warm outside.

I am thinking we went from winter to summer here in Ohio. One day we're wearing winter jackets and the next we're sleeping with the windows open!

I am thankful that we are getting things done to sell our home soon.

One of my favorite things is snuggling with Chloe at bedtime.

I am creating another afghan to be donated to Warm Up America. I finished this one and have started another one.
I'm also working on caning my rocking chair. It is over 100 years old and needed the seat re-caned.

I am wearing a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes.

I am watching the Cleveland Indians play a double-header and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat Toronto in Toronto. They come home to play Saturday. Go Cavs!
I am hoping that it won't be difficult living with one car. We went from two cars to one car this week.

I am learning that I have to sit back and let God lead me. This is especially true when you differ with God on the 'next step.

In my kitchen all is quiet. We went to Panera for dinner. Tim wanted something different.

In my garden things are green and growing and filling in. I saw a lone tulip among the hyacinths.

A moment from my day-My son set up a family breakfast for my father-in-law's birthday. His birthday is Monday, but all of the kids couldn't be there so we ate breakfast together.
This was Dad's 'go to' place for meals. They know him. When they found out it was his birthday they sang to him, gave him a huge piece of cream pie, and gave us all a small piece of cake.
My son made Grandpa his favorite lemon cake and took it to Grandpa's to celebrate some more.
What a special son I have. He is sensitive and has a heart for Jesus. He and his wife see Grandpa each week or two. I'm so blessed.

Closing Notes
I had to share this image of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. When I was a beginning teacher, people got me many Winnie the Pooh books, toys and stuffed animals for my classroom. 
My kids grew up on Winnie the Pooh videos and books too. Pooh has been a favorite at our house. I just smiled and said, "Awwww, so sweet."

This is a challenge card for Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to make a simple card with a pet on it.  This is a double triangle card. You take an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper and score it at 5 1/2" and 4 1/4" side(which is the center of each side of the paper.) Then cut the paper on the diagonal.  Then cut a piece of designer paper 5 1/4"x 4" and cut it on the diagonal and add it to your card.  The ribbon is to hold it closed. You could use a belly band instead of ribbon.

 This was the color challenge this week at SCS. The colors were white, black and powder pink.
I added pink to the background with painter's tape. Then I used versamark with the flowers and clear embossing powder. Then I added the sentiment and flowers.
 This was Monday's technique challenge. The challenge was stamping with tape. You take a piece of painter's tape and push the sticky side into the ink pad. Then you stamp with the tape. I used a few colors here.  I liked the rough background look to go with the sentiment.
 This is the card for Wednesday's sketch challenge. This will go to South Carolina's Juvenile Justice System.
Verse of the Day:
Image result for Proverbs 18:6

This song spoke to me. There are so many people out there with hardships we'll never know about. God knows and stays near to all who need Him. Ordinary people are used today just like they were in the Bible pages we read.

Blessing of the Day: Spending time with the kids and Dad to celebrate his 90th birthday. What a blessed time it was.

Thanks for stopping by.
