The Simple Woman's Day Book---January Edition
Outside my window... It is cloudy and cold. The air is sweet and feels like diving into a cold swimming pool on a hot summer day. It is refreshing and clear and brisk. Right now, I am in love with winter this second week of January.
I am thinking... I have so many things to get accomplished today. I really shouldn't be on the computer. The laundry piles are huge mountains to climb. School needs to be started. The dog decided this weekend was a good weekend to shed all over the place.
I am thankful... That I have a nice roof over my head. That I have electricity. That I have lots of normal to get done today. I like normal.
In the kitchen...My son is eating breakfast before he goes to work. He will be the third person out the door this morning. Emilie starts her new job today. I am so excited for her. I can't wait to hear all about what she learns on her first day.
I am wearing... Sweats and a white shirt and tennis shoes. When I use bleach and cleaners I always wear things that won't be destroyed.
I am creating...I have four rugs and three counted cross stitch patterns I am working on.
I am going...to keep looking forward and not back.
I am wondering...If I will be able to do all that I have set my face to do this year.
I am reading...Christy, Bleak House, My Bible and all of my devotionals, I got a new one using the selected writings of C.S. Lewis which is fantastic.
I am hoping...That we keep getting rain, and that it stays cold. I am not ready for any kind of warm up yet.
I am looking forward to...This weekend
I am learning... No body cares what I get done or what I don't get done for the wedding. All that really matters is that the bride and groom are there. The vows are short and the food is served quick and there is lots of it.
Around the house...
I am pondering...How long I will be upstairs today doing school.
A favorite quote for today..." Know that the Lord is God It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture, Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise, give thanks to him and praise his name." (Psalm 100:3-4)
One of my favorite things...right now are lambs and sheep. I just can't get enough of looking at them. I guess it is because this time of year the shepherd bring the sheep to eat down the alfalfa fields. I always think of that this time of year and listening to them and watching them as I drive by.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I am watching my four grandsons this week. Peter is driving with a instructor this week. Lots of things going on.
A peek into my day...
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a very nice week.
