The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window... It is foggy and gray, the trees are dripping with fog, the ground is wet and
the air smells like a deep freeze. My thermometer reads 37 degrees.
I am thinking...That I am not yet tired of winter. I am not ready to attach a hula-hoe to my arm like that guy in Edward Scissor Hands. Every where I look I see Chick Weed and Lesser Nettles growing.
I am thankful for...Today. I am so thankful for my home, for the dryer working away, for sons that I still can teach and for my life. Today, I am very, very thankful for my life.
From the learning rooms... Last night we had a young man stay for dinner. I am thankful that God brings people to our table that want to learn of Spiritual things and that he was comfortable enough to be open and ask questions and that God can use our home to minister to others who have been hurt in the world.
From the kitchen...I am so glad that I have a kitchen in which to cook and that even though I still haven't got my dishwasher fixed, I really do enjoy washing dishes and the time that I can stand and dream looking out my kitchen window.
I am wearing...My ratty old walking jacket, Jeans, (I can wear them now, and I didn't have to lay on the bed to get them zipped nor did have to go though all kinds of contortions to pull them up.
A old black shirt with that because it is a house cleaning day.
I am creating...I am working on my hooked rug and I plan on making some more things I just haven't worked out somethings in my head.
I am going...To be going upstairs to teach school.
I am reading...Walking Away From the Faith By Ruth A. Tucker and Hot Tub Religion by
J.I. Packer, Great Books of the Christian Tradition by Terry W. Glaspey
I am hoping...That the sun comes out this afternoon.
I am hearing...The gentle hum of my computer, the heavy sighs of the dog who wants to go for a walk, the sound of the jeans in the dryer and the sound of the zippers hitting the metal.
Around the house...I need to get the floors mopped after school.
One of my favorite things...I love schedules. I love knowing that things are being done according to plan. I love that my house is pretty clean and I am calm.
A few plans for the rest of the week:School, sewing, running my house hold and formulating a plan to declutter my house.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
I am glad I am not having one of these weeks.
I hope you have a wonderful week, thank you so much for stopping by
today, and I thank Peggy for her Day Book entries.
Blessings to you today,
