Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... January 27, 2011

Outside my window...the sun is coming up and there is frost on car windshields.

I am thinking... I want to call my sister-in-law and wish her a happy birthday TODAY.

I am thankful for... conviction, brokenness, and thirst ~ three things that have overwhelmed me lately.

I am wearing... denim skirt, camisole and sweater.

I am remembering... a sweet evening spent with Godly women. I am humbled to have been a part of this group. It is good to set apart time to be encourage, redirected and challenged to live the life He has called me to.

I am going...
to complete a refresher course of reading and phonics with my three younger children to boost their writing and spelling skills. Only a couple of days in and so far so good.

I am currently reading... Chronological One Year Bible.

I am hoping
... to complete a project I wanted to finish for Christmas.

On my mind
... prayer and an intimate relationship with my Savior.

Noticing that... everything is brown and barren. This causes the train to be much louder in the morning... I like the sound of that train.

Pondering these words... spoken by my children, "you used to sing this song all the time", Yes, I used to sing that to my babies.

From the kitchen
... fresh beets that tasted as sweet as candy, menus need to be done due to activities having me out of the house in the afternoons.

Around the house... I am enjoying a wonderfully organized office, Christmas decorations are finally put away, O.K. except for the occasional item I keep finding.

One of my favorite things ~ unexpected mail from the other-side of the world. Thank you!

From my picture journal... it's either stir fry or soup...but my kitchen counter is typically covered in chopped veggies.

Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... January 5, 2011

Outside my window... gray skies, storms coming and cooler weather.

I am thinking... about beginning projects earlier this year, and the garden. Found pictures(a camera stick in the back of a drawer)like this have me dreaming about growing something...anything.

I am thankful for... the blessing of our home.

I am wearing... jeans and a sweatshirt. Had to dash to a neighbors to help redress a wound. I will be wearing a little nicer "winter" outfit to do some running around.

I am remembering... a fun, calm, family filled and sweet holiday season.~to be making a list of the many ideas I have for this new year.

I am going...
to take a boy for oral surgery the end of the week, ouch.

I am currently reading... Chronological One Year Bible.

I am hoping
... for the courage to die to myself just a little more 2011.

On my mind
... complete revision of paperwork for our business. This must me tackled within the week, makes me want to take a nap.

Noticing that... my children are moving closer to leaving at a speed I am unable to slow down.

Pondering these words... laughter makes you live longer. I would like to see something new (to me) Tim Hawkins.

From the kitchen
... fresh bread, soups, cookies made by girls and a few other comfort foods.

Around the house... we are still completely decorated but cleaning out and rearranging has begun. Dad is on the warpath to get rid of "stuff", yeah!

One of my favorite things ~ that beautiful Lunar Eclipse last month.

From my picture journal... bravely singing in church.
