A Simple Woman's Daybook





For today... November 30th, 2009 (actually the 29th)

Outside my window...
are twinkling Christmas lights-- festive and bright

I am thinking... about projects that I would like to complete soon. I'm also thinking about future projects and activities and what the Lord would like me to do with the time He has given me.

I am thankful for... for the beautiful day we had, our church family, and I am very thankful for a pastor that faithfully teaches through the bible.

I'm very thankful we had a sweet, simple, mellow Thanksgiving Day celebration. It was one of the best Thanksgiving days I've ever had.

I am wearing...
jeans, a sage-y green turtle neck shell, black cardigan, and boiled wool slip-ons.

I am going... actually, I just got back from running errands with Nana. We want to do at least two more weeks of school before our break so I didn't want to have to run errands this week. Except for the usual lessons, I think the library is the only thing on the list.

I am reading... Footsteps of the Flock, the Book of Hebrews, and assorted bits and pieces of other reading material. I need to pick-up my grammar workbook again-- soon :)

I am praying... and my hubby prayed for me today at church, to have a fresh out pouring and filling of the Holy Spirit. The Lord gives good gifts to His children... I'm so grateful we need only ask.

I am hoping...For revival in our neighborhood.

I am creating... this little sweater, in white, from Knitting Pure and Simple

I'm also creating the DVD cover for Pirates in the Suburbs.

Pondering these words...
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, In everything give thanks; For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise the prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.
Abstain from every form of evil. 1 Thess 5:16-22

From the kitchen... An attempt at creative bento box making. I'll keep you posted :)

Around the house...
Unfortunately, the only good thing to report here is that Christmas lights are up. I really needed down time and apparently I needed a three-day migraine to insure that I had it. I am feeling much better and hope to do lots of "damage control" this week.

One of my favorite things~
cuddling with my kids right after they shower and smell so yummy.

From my picture journal...

Our son was curious about gears and I remembered that I saved these toys.
He LOVED playing with the gears and re-arranging the configurations.
Ah, a boy after my own heart :)

Hi Lainie,
I am sorry to hear about your migraine. I also had a whopper this weekend. Mine are ocular migraines and they are not fun. I hope you have a better week.
His Child,
Sandi

Thanks Sandi... I hope you are feeling better too.

I'm just grateful I wasn't in the ER like I used to be. Definitely-- no fun.

I'll be praying for your headaches to stay away...
