Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY...January 8, 2010 (OK it's the 11th, I think I lost several days.)
Outside my window...icy cold. We do not have winters like we are having this year. I do like it, but it is my frame of mind that is struggling. If I knew it would be cold for a month then I would be prepared mentally. I am used to it being cold for a day or two and then warm again. Oh,and I would own more cold weather clothes.
I am thinking...it would be nice for winter to be like this every year.
I am thankful for...heat, gas fires and wood fires.
I am wearing... yoga pants, long~underwear top with t-shirt over it and clogs.
I am remembering...to trust Him in all things. I am reminded again and again that He takes care of even the small simple details if I will make my petition known and just leave it there.
I am going...to be setting up a "studio" (aka: craft room) for me and the girls.
I am currently reading...My one year Bible, Bight Arrows, Do the Hard Thing.
I am hoping...to finish the upstairs.
On my mind...all of the things that must be done for Jacob's senior year. It has sure changed since I was in school and there are so many things that must be done by certain deadlines.
Noticing that...everyone feels a little lighter when deep cleaning (room rearranging) happens.
Pondering these words..."I can't believe we had this much junk. I think things must be growing in there. It's dangerous, you might not want to go in there. I don't want any of the stuff that's in there. Just get rid of it all." words spoken by three boys that shared this room for eight and a half years.
From the kitchen...beans soaking, tons of stir-fry, soup, homemade tortillas.
Around the house...Daddy's on vacation and we wanted to do a lot of outside work. Since the weather is not cooperating maybe a little outside work and a lot of inside work. In addition, family meals, movies, games, and an outing or two. Happy to have this time off and get some children and things in order.
One of my favorite things~frosty mornings, a dusting of ice on my windshield that looks like snow.
From my picture journal...It snowed for the first time in twenty years...
