Simple Woman's Daybook - February 9, 2009


Outside my window...rainy, dreary day - all I want to do is curl up with a good book so I could snooze and lounge the day away

I am this time of year is not my favorite, as I am very antsy for spring and the fresh color of green to bless the land

I am thankful for...a mom who is gently prodding me to follow through with some educational testing for my oldest son

From the learning rooms...TJ is going to learn how to use the "widgets" section of an online program today as she loves to put inventions together. That will keep her entertained and learning while the older two plug away

From the kitchen...have chicken breasts thawing for something???

I am wearing...slippers, wool socks, jeans, blue shirt with a flannel shirt over the top

I am creating...a list of dictation my dh needs to get done before I can send out some billing

I am hopefully get a menu planned for the week so I can get to the store and use our money in the best way

I am reading...The first book in Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion series, and I'm still working on The Love Dare

I am hoping...for a light dusting of snow to cover all the bare, brown earth

I am hearing...JT teaching TJ how to use the widgets program

Around the house...seems like our "Mission Organization" has fallen slightly by the wayside - I'd like to get the kids back on track and keep our house in better the very least, I'd like to get the storage room back to its normal state

One of my favorite things...a big bowl of steaming, hot, flavorful soup - I could eat soup every day!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Church meeting tonight, Wednesday noon presentation, church activities Wed night, a focus group meeting Thursday, cookies to bake for Valentine's Day, and something???? for Saturday, but not sure what it will be yet

Here is picture thought I am sharing... This picture reminds me each time of God's light leading the way through a dark world!

Beautiful photo, Sarah! I like your idea of the weekly menu. It does make it easier to plan. Have a lovely week.

Oh... I love the Mark of the Lion Series...I think of Haddasa(sp?) still.. The first time I read that series, I could not put it down.. I plowed through it... I love soup in the winter too.. It's honestly the next thing to heaven if you ask me!
Goodness, girl, your picture is gorgeous! The silhouette of the trees, lake and the clouds are beautiful! Great angle and contrast!

I love your picture and thanks for the comment on my day book. I just had to laugh when I read your comment about school and your B-day.

I love the photo. You are so right about it also. My Husband and I are going to begin the Love Dare this Saturday. We are so excited about it. Have a great week.

Hi, Sarah,
I enjoyed seeing the picture of your home with the snow around it (on the sidebar).

We really enjoy soups and stews at our house, too, especially during this cold weather.

Have a good week!

The Mark of the Lion Series is so beautiful. I cried so many times while reading these books. Hadassah is so faithful,loving and excepting of God's plan,that even though she is a fictional character I find myself truly admiring her.
