The Simple Woman's Daybook




For Today, Monday June 15th, 2009...

Outside my window... there are white fluffy clouds and very welcomed blue skies.

I am thinking... about our last two weeks of school and our upcoming plans for the summer.

From the learning rooms... we are in Week 33! Wow, one more week after this and we will be all done. It's a great feeling and has been a great year. We've had our hard moments and challenges but overall we have all learned and grown in wisdom and love.

This week we are studying Nehemiah and Greece's Golden Age.

I am thankful for... the wonderful visit we've had with Karl's mom. She flies home today and we are going to miss her. It's been so nice having her here, hearing stories, laughing and simply enjoying her. I am so glad she was able to be at the ballet on Saturday and able to join us for church on Sunday.

From the kitchen... we have way too much food! Lots of leftovers this week.

I am wearing... Navy blue capris and a nay and white striped top from Old Navy.

I am reading... another new book. For our anniversary Karl gave me a couple new books about Christ as the Tabernacle. The one I'm reading right now is by A.B. Simpson titled, "Christ in the Tabernacle: An Old Testament portrayal of the Christ of the New Testament." It's awesome.

I am hoping... that we continue to finish the year out strong and that I continue to be healthy and capable of serving my family.

I am creating... our school yearbook for this year.

I am praying... for contentment. I've been "itchy" to "do" something and need to be content to keep doing the next right thing and trust that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be and doing what I'm called to do.

Around the house... is evidence of much busyness and neglect! This week is hopefully my week to get the house in order.

One of my favorite things... empty hampers and empty laundry baskets. Both literal and figuratively. I love Mondays because our clothes are laundered and put away. But I love Sundays even more since I can give my "dirty laundry" to the Lord to wash in the water of His Word. We take communion every Sunday and it's a nice way to start out the week-- with a clean slate/ fresh start to the week. It makes me feel hopeful and expectant :)

A few plans for the rest of the week... school in the morning, Wednesday Karl and I are meeting again with an engaged couple from church, and celebrating Father's Day on Sunday.

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