Simple Woman' Daybook

Daybook for September 11,2011


Outside my window… it's just beginning to sprinkle.

Thinking about.... the history of this day and hope for the future

Thankful for…my family most of all.

In the kitchen… there is a little leftover chocolate cream pie
wonder if I can get it before Lee does.heh heh

Wearing… khaki pants /shirt no shoes,funky looking glasses.

Creating…in my sketchbook

Going to…take a trip this fall.

Wondering  if all of the Hatch chilies I bought this weekend are too mild.

Reading…a book of prayers

Hoping to spend some time making art this week.

Looking forward to a good week.

I am hearing…Alicia Keys singing New York, New York

Around the house…evidence that my grand children play here

One of my favorite things…music

A few plans for the rest of the week… working,laughing,playing,living, loving


  1. Reading this, I thought of how much all the little things mean in our lives. I loved the sentence - "evidence that my grand children play here" - that tells me your home is loved and lived in and not just a show place.

    Great sketch!!

  2. Love this little self-portrait Gemma. And your thoughts on the significance of yesterday too.

  3. I like doing these occasionally and always enjoy reading them. So where are you planning to go?

  4. I really enjoyed reading this post and seeing the day through your eyes Gemma :)

  5. Beautiful signs of life and its ability to endure and overcome.
