Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... February 8, 2010

Outside my window...
dark and cold.

I am thinking... about changing our dog Emma's diet to real food. I'm not sure and I'm still doing the research but she has developed epilepsy and believe her diet could cause more seizures.

I am thankful for... the official end of football season. I have a love hate relationship with football and so I am happy to see it come and often more happy to see it go.

From the learning rooms... new schedules

From the kitchen... soup, soup and soup ~ baby it's cold outside.

I am wearing... jeans, undershirt and sweatshirt.

I am creating... this booga bag (picture included after a couple of people asked what it is. The entire bag is a knit stich (I think that might be called garter.) and then felted. I felted mine by had and wanted it to be a little stiffer. A lady in my knitting group was kind enough to take it home and put it in her machine. I do not have a machine with an agitator.

I am going... to get new knitting needles so that I can start my next project. It is a caplet type thiny made out of the most delicious yarn I have ever used, it's going to be so fun.

I am reading... Sign of the Beaver, with Caleb. Do Hard Things, as a family read-aloud.

I am hoping... for a much better week than last, things were tough around here. I was struggling emotionally, very overwhelmed and frustrated.

I am praying for... a music audition this weekend and college plans to materialize.

Pondering these words... by C.S. Lewis on the subject of worship. "I did not see that it is in the process of being worshiped that God communicates His presence to men.

I am hearing... Emma whine because she wants to be outside running, but it is just too cold for her.

Around the house... things are pretty straight (except for that studio space, but it's coming along) so this means I get to work on a few projects.

One of my favorite things... Superbowl commercials. A popular soda company had the worst commercials and my favorite was this.

A few plans for the rest of the week: much of the usual stuff, but with a little more scheduling added for sanity purposes.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...two boys fishing in the rain.Head over to Peggy's to read more Daybooks and meet other women who share how they accomplish simplicity in their everyday life.

One of my neighbours has one of her cats on a special diet. Not for epilepsy, but something else and she manages, but she is single and i guess her cats are her babies.

The bag is awesome! I haven't written much but wanted to let you know that I have been praying for you friend. Life has been overwhelming here as well... as I said in a post, I'm so thankful for "My Rock." Praying tonight that you are encouraged and draw strength from Him as well. Day to day right now is so crazy with many unknowns, not sure of nexts, etc. But we have an awesome faithful Father who is carrying us and I'm so thankful!
