Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...Monday, September 21, 2009

Outside my window...the first sign of light is beginning to fill the sky. The weather is calling to scattered thunderstorms. Funny, I just heard thunder, followed by rain on my roof. Last night the air felt like the major heat has begun to let up slightly, when is the first day of Fall?

I am thinking...about how long it has been since I visited this spot. This is the place that allows for reflecting. I find myself constantly trying to catch my breath and seriously thought about giving up this adventure all together. But, who cares how long it is between posts? My original intent was for my children to have words and pictures to document the ordinary daily events on our family journey, if this is still the case, goal accomplished.

I am thankful for...healthy children.

I am wearing...brand new jammies ~ it is still dark out.

I am remembering...that I have a present hidden from a birthday celebrated on the 12th. Someone is going to be happy to get a surprise.

I am creating...a crocheted pumpkin to add to the fall decorations.

I am going...to be getting things in order. My mother is having surgery next week and I hope to be organized enough to help her.

I am reading...very little, not time for this right now.

I am hoping...for a positive experience for my mom and as quick a recovery as can be expected.

On my mind...ENG1101 and the struggle my young men have with this class.

From the learning rooms...slow start to the bookwork with our trip this week taking our minds away from paperwork and pencils

Noticing that...I am way too tired on Monday mornings. This should not be the case, so something needs to be done differently.

Pondering these words...You do not have, because you do not ask God, When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures(NIV). James 4:2.

From the kitchen...menus and a few meals in the freezer. Due to the set up of my parents house they may need to come here for part of the recovery process ~ no stairs. Meals in the freezer will allow for greater ministry to my parents, my husband and our children.

Around the house...could someone please get out the fall decorations!!

One of my favorite things~listening to the rain falling on our metal roof. Working in the school room upstairs and watching the rainfall out the windows.

A few plans for the rest of the week: organizing, cleaning, school work, music lessons, football practice, helping with paper writing, weeding and yard-work.

From my picture journal...remembering last fall.

It sounds like a busy week for you! I pray you'll be able to do everything you need to do and don't worry about the rest. There is always tomorrow!

Hope your mom's surgery goes well and that she heals quickly.
