Simple Woman's Daybook

I'm continually amazed at how God is always right on time! The past few weeks, I have felt so frazzled and out of sorts, due to too many commitments and a general lack of being able to do things that truly bring me joy and peace. I decided yesterday to let go of some outside commitments and focus more on home, family, and devotion (Bible study, prayer). And tonight, I came upon this great meme on Homesteaders Heart's blog! This will be a nice reminder that I need to slow down, stop, and think about the little things each day in my desire to be a more Simple Woman. :)


FOR TODAY...

Outside my window...it is dark & rainy.

I am thinking...that this is a cool new-to-me meme.

I am thankful for... the fridge FULL of food that we are blessed to have, even though I have no room for the stuffing I have to make tonight for tomorrow's work luncheon.

I am wearing... brown yoga pants w/pink trim, and shirt that says:

I am remembering...
that I need to make that stuffing for tomorrow's work luncheon!

I am creating... this blog post. :)

I am going... finish this blog, check my Facebook, try to locate some wedding songs for a friend, and either read or watch some mindless tv before sleep (desperately need the downtime).

I am reading... Peace Pilgrim - "Peace Pilgrim walked and spoke continuously across America from 1953 until her death in 1981. "Walking until given shelter and fasting until given food," she carried a simple yet powerfully enduring message of peace."

I am hoping... to hear from my sons soon.

On my mind...work tomorrow and all that needs to be done in the next two days before Thanksgiving vacation.

Noticing that... the house is quiet except the hum of the dishwasher.

Pondering these words... "Count your blessings"

From the kitchen... again with the stuffing for tomorrow!

Around the house... I got a bit done today: some laundry (still not completely done, but is it ever?), sweeping, kitchen & bedrooms are clean, office could use some tidying.

One of my favorite things. . . my beautiful inside-and-out daughter!

A few plans for the rest of the week. . . work tomorrow & Wednesday, lunch at Mother-in-Law's house Thursday, then to my moms to see all of my family (the ones in the continental US, at least). SO looking forward to seeing my baby grand-niece again!

From my picture journal...

HUGE fish my brother caught in the Bay on Saturday!

Sorry about your friend and your precious dog. Congratulations, however, on your daughter's accomplishment. That's a great honor. Happy Thanksgiving.
