Simple Woman's Daybook


For today...
Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Outside my window...
the grass is greening up and this makes me happy, all animals are home from fair ~ the two and four legged ones.

I am thinking...
there is way too much that must be done. I have made a list for fear some important things may get overlooked and they have large consequences if they are forgotten, you know ~ the expensive kind of consequences.

I am thankful for...
a husband that never complains about the things I can not manage to get done.

From the learning rooms...end of the year planning. Assessing what needs to be done to wrap things up and peeking around the corner to next year.

I am wearing...
a neck and headache. A trip to my chiropractor would be nice but I don't know how to work that in.

I am creating...
two baby quilts and not much else. I have many things that need to be done and they have left me with little creative energy. I have many things I think about and wonder if I should sketch or list them in some little way. With the busyness of life creativity feels like more work and I don't like that.

I am going...to be very glad when the boys are finished with this semester.

I am reading...
The Age of Opportunity by Tripp and thankful for the encouragement.

I am praying for...
people around me with medical issues and direction for Jacob.

From the kitchen...
a freezer too full to get one more thing in. Meat and veggies sound healthy and good.

I am hoping...
Jesus returns soon...that I can get these two quilts finished...Nanny and Poppy have a wonderful time on vacation this week.

I am hearing...
what else?...Jacob on viola.

Around the house...birthday decorations remind us that two people are another year older.

One of my favorite things
...
a certain smell the air has in the spring. Sunday night it had that smell and we spent a little time outside in fellowship with friends.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
things are pretty much back to normal activities. Kids are back to school work, paper work for college, planning for the fall and getting everything in place.

Here is [are two] picture thought[s] I am sharing...[couldn't decide]


below is a picture of me leaving our house and headed
to the neighbors on our tote gote.
I was laughing and felt like I should be in Europe.

Hope your neck and headache get better, and that you get through all the things you need to. Take care!

Love the picture of you on the bike. When creativity seems like more work you know to much is happening. I pray soon the end of a tunnel will be there for you soon.

Hope you are feeling better. I love the Tote Goat picture:) Looks like fun! Gladyour school year is winding down, ours has been rough and discouraging in some ways,but I am thankful for the things my children have learned about suffering, sacrifice and compassion through it all.
Take care my friend, praying for you.
Blessings,
gayly

I never heard of a tote gote ... is that like a motorbike?

Don't you love it when the freezer is full?

Happy birthday to your children!
