A Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... Monday, January 11th, 2010

Outside my window... gimme a 'G'--G!, gimme an 'R'---R!, gimme an 'A' ---A!, gimme a 'Y'---Y!  What's that spell?  gray... it's gray :)

I am thinking... that I do much better in my week when I do this daybook.  I was discombobulated last week and never, quite, recovered.

I am thankful for... a wonderful birthday weekend for our eldest, that so many poured out love and encouragement for her, and that my order from Precepts actually did ship and should be here today

I am wearing... jammies... the laundry is going... need pants...

I am remembering... and realizing how fast time seems to go as our children get older.  The last five years went by super quick!

I am going... to have a Demarle party here on Tuesday, a meeting with some lovely women from church on Wednesday, ahhh... mid-week study on Thursday, and then hopefully no where else except church on Sunday!

I am currently reading... the Book of Hebrews, assorted passages, and my new Noro yarn knitting book.

I am hoping... to grow in love and grace this year.

I am creating... not a pair of socks.  I ripped them out.  There was a typo on the pattern and after fixing it... I was just d.o.n.e. with that sock.  I will try again another time.  I am (Lord willing) creating a little bolero sweater for myself from my Noro book.

On my mind... school, cleaning the house before tomorrow, and the faithfulness of God to work in our children's lives and that He is trustworthy.

I am hearing... the heater, eating, and humming :)

Around the house... things are not as orderly as I like them to be but the people in the house are doing great!  So I'll try to keep persepctive...

One of my favorite things~ during this colder time of year is sitting and knitting.

From my picture journal...

This is a picture of our Pastor praying for Micah and Marla (and family) as they prepare to go back to Brazil and the mission field for two more years.  They are returning a new daughter richer and although we will miss them, we rejoice that they are willing to go where the Lord is sending them.

Micah and Marla's family are the first missionary family that Mishmash Maggie will be supporting with the proceeds from the Zazzle store.  I received my first sample of the mugs and it is a nice mug and the graphics are really clear!  I was happily surprised. :)

Wow, if you grow in love and grace this year that would be amazing- they are already characteristics that seem to define you!

Thank you for your b'day message. I'm always embarassed to admit my age (you I know what I'm talking about at 7 kids...come on:)

Hoping school is going well...those "big yellow things" that pass by our home each day are tempting me. I did, however, read the last chapter of BronzeBow aloud to the kids just hours ago...I'd miss those times so much if I let those "big yellow things" wheel my babies away...

Happy Tuesday!

BTW...Zazzle Store is awesome. Still thinking of the dishes mug for Kylie's 13th...then I saw the Pirates one...decisions, decisions:)

Looking for something??
