The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, Monday April 27th, 2009...

Outside my window... overcast and gray. At least it's not currently raining.

I am thinking... about how much sense it makes that Jesus was born in a manger. He is after the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. Where else would a lamb be born?

From the learning rooms... we are heading into week 27 and the life of Elisha.

I am thankful for... how the Lord, once again, showed Himself faithful to me and my family last night. Wow.

From the kitchen... I haven't given a single thought to meal planning for this week. I'll have to pop back into this post once I figure it out. My mind has been occupied with other things!

I am wearing... gray slacks, a gray turtle neck shell with a sweater thrown over it. And yes the lilac Ugg's are on... the tile is cold this morning.

I am reading... the usual. I just finished an amazing book, "The Same Kind of Different As Me" by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. I highly recommend it especially to those that like biographies. I don't know what I'll pick-up next...

I am hoping... to get caught up on editing science videos and blogging posts. It was an interesting week last week and I just needed a time of silence.

I am creating... a couple of projects leftover from the last few weeks that I haven't been able to do.

I am praying... prayers of gratefulness and thanksgiving. The foot of the cross is an amazing place...

Around the house... we are getting there!! Last week I "found" my kitchen counters (yea!) and then the Captain and I picked out a new shower curtain and shower caddy. We came home and he cleaned the bathroom and hung up the new stuff. I can't believe how something as simple as changing the shower curtain made everything feel so new and fresh.

Last night he tackled the kitchen floor so we're in a pretty good spot coming into this week.

One of my favorite things... freedom in Christ.

A few plans for the rest of the week... just plugging away at school, the usual lessons (violin and ballet), hopefully Bible study tonight. It's very quiet this week. *** Edited to add I now have a physiatrist appointment tomorrow and will be picking up my traction unit this week!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Today is The Captain's birthday but it's also his late day at work so we gave him his gifts last night. His best childhood friend sent him Legos :D It's so fun to see a now 41 year old man get excited over new toys. hee hee.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!

YEAH,,you get your traction they are QUICK!!! That is one of the most endearing things about the Captain I think...the childhood glee over simple things has not been pulled out of is GREAT!!!

Happy Birthday Captain!!!

YEah Lord and Your might and restorative works in our lives, both physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Love you all

forever I am His said...

thank you for visiting at my blog! it has been a joy to meet you.

I laughed when I saw your husband's birthday present! how, cute; the thing is... my husband has not grown out of Star Wars or super heroes for that matter yet, and I am not sure that he ever will :O) ((It's good to have the 'kid' still in the man.))

blessings to you and yours.

Looking for something??
