THE SIMPLE WOMAN'S DAY BOOK
Outside my window...Spring is in full bloom. The sky is a brilliant blue and all the birds are singing.
I am thinking...what a fortunate woman I am, with all my family members living nearby and with a delightful circle of women friends as well.
I am thankful...that, apart from a temporarily (I hope) painful knee, I am extremely fit and active for my age.
In the kitchen...nothing is going on. I'm going out for supper tonight so Malcolm has had a main-meal lunch at the local club so that he'll only need a snack tonight.
I am wearing...a rather old, light mauve and turquoise blouse, with a spencer under it because there's still a chill in the breeze. I'm also wearing mauve and turquoise beads and ear-rings. I'm not a snazzy dresser, like some of my friends, but I do like things matching!
I am creating...this blog page. But I have ideas for a new play festering away in my mind. A friend has asked me to write a little comedy about Lawn Bowls, to take around to bowling clubs, but I first have to find out more about the game!
I am going...to the VIEW club tonight. This is a ladies' club whose soul purpose is to raise money for The Smith Family, a local charity. I joined the group when its meeting coincided with the meeting of his Car Club. He no longer goes to the Car Club, but I still continue with VIEW, because I like the company of the members.
I am wondering...whether we will have a really bad bush-fire season this year. We have had two years of drenching rain and so there's a lot of fuel for fires. We are safe here, in a city on the edge of the sea, but I still find bush-fires terrifying.
I am reading...'The Help' which is the chosen book for my Book Group this month. I am enjoying it so much. I saw the film, but I think the book is infinitely better.
I am hoping...the pain in my knee is going to ease-up soon!
I am looking forward to...tomorrow. I am taking my melodrama group to perform at a local church. The play is called 'Between the Sheets'! It's about a Librarian saving his girl-friend from a 'fate worse than death' through a clue left in a library book. I write song-parodies so there's a lot of audience-involvement.
I am learning......oh dear! I don't think I'm learning anything!!!!
Around the house...As we intend to sell-up and move into retirement accommodation in about four years, we're not doing much to the house, but we feel the carpet will need cleaning any day soon!
I am pondering...the state of the world. I do it frequently. If there were no newspapers, or news broadcasts I'd think the whole world was happy (it seems to be so here) but, unfortunately, the world intrudes. There has just been a ghastly murder in Melbourne, and that has unsettled everyone.
A favourite quote for today...'Ladies! If a man says he'll fix something, he will. There's no need to remind him every six months!' I saw this on-line the other day and it made me smile!
One of my favourite things...is a beetroot sandwich!!! I love beetroot in any form and I've just had some for lunch. I believe it's good for you but I'd eat it even if it wasn't!
I'll add my most recent photo. This is my melodrama group, taken at a get-together last week. We had just presented a program of two plays at a local community centre and we were meeting to discuss the pros and cons. I am the lady on the far left in the front, in a white top.
My main blog is at http://rinklyrimes.blogspot.com On it you can find many photos of my activities and my family as well as regular poems about Life with a Capital L. See you there! Just typing Rinkly Rimes into Google will take you there.
