A Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... Monday, January 18th, 2010

Outside my window... There was sun this morning! It was beautiful and very appreciated.

I am thinking... that the readers of this blog are very amazing and very sweet and are very dear to me.

I'm also thinking about the start of the new bible study tonight.

I'm thinking about how quickly our children are growing up.

I am thankful for... the people God has placed in my life to encourage me and point me back to Him when I forget to look up. I'm thankful for the Word and that reading it is a balm for my soul.

I am wearing... jeans, a black top, and my big Ugg boots because my feet are really cold today!

I am remembering... that I have prescriptions that need to be refilled.

I am going... to have wonderful women in my home tonight, to take Brigitta to an eye appointment tomorrow, and there is some mysterious thing on my calendar on Thursday. All it says is, "2:15." Am I supposed to be somewhere??!! Is someone coming over??!! I have no idea what is supposed to take place this Thursday at 2:15... sigh... my brain has left the building.

I am currently reading... the Book of Hebrews, assorted passages, and my new Noro yarn knitting book. (same as last week)

I am hoping... for so much for so many...

I am creating... this sweater (still)

and hopefully, our Christmas cards (lol), and I need to burn a lot more DVDs of the movie. We keep running out and we haven't even started on our mailing list!

On my mind... whether or not to do the Roman Feast activity this week. My heart is not in it at all.

I am hearing... the washing machine, Leisl asking Kurt if he would like the peel on his apple (yes, he likes the peel), and the scribble of Briggita's pencil as she works on her art for today.

Around the house... we finally got a new mat/rug thing for the entry way. Everyone was slipping on the tile on rainy days. Wet tile is rather dangerous!

One of my favorite things~ being a girl ;)

From my picture journal...

Last week Katie-kins showed up to my house wearing me on a T-shirt!
It was the strangest, surrealist (is that a word??), and most surprising experience I've had in a very long time!

It was also very fun and cute and sweet.
I love you Katie-kins! Mwuah!!

I'm excited to know there will be some money sent to our missionary family this month too :)

Love the T-shirt, yes "surrealist" is a word.

I say skip the feast if your heart is not in it. There will be plenty of other activities to do. The kids will notice if Mom is "unsure". No good.

...Wish I could say the appt Thursday at 2:15 was me and Kylie meeting you and Leisl for lunch :) wouldn't that be fun?!!

Talk to ya later!
