Simple Woman's Daybook



For Today... December 15, 2008

Outside my Window... It's been dark & dreary all day... and was completely dark by 5:00...

I am remembering... All the wonderful extra curricular activities/ministries our family used to be a part of.... LAF (homeschool group), CF!E, and HMB (nursing home ministry).... such good times!

I am thankful for...
My mom & sisters making it home safe & sound... just as the ice storm was starting to get bad!!

I am thinking... How blessed we are, to have such a healthy, energetic, busy, & vibrant little girl... after talking to a dear friend tonight (who's 17 month old has Spina Bifida), I was struck with the realization that not every one is nearly so lucky...

I am wearing... My new, super cute, brown (with silver music across the front) tee.. silver heart necklace around my neck... jean skirt... barefeet (with the cute french pedicure my sister did for me!)... hair pulled back in a messy bun, of sorts...

I am reading... NOT my script!! (the play was last night... and seems to have, thankfully, gone off REALLY well! - yay!)

From the kitchen... today for dinner it was macaroni & cheese with tuna fish in it... other than that, I have nothing scheduled... I need to menu plan!

I am hoping/praying... that even though B's job is supposed to be slow over the next 2½ weeks... that God will prove himself even bigger.. and keep them all nice and busy during that time! (even if that means lots of rain!!)

I am creating...

I am hearing... music playing from Pandora (currently: "Let The Words Escape", Chris Rice)... the dogs lapping up water from their bowls (B just got home, and let them inside)... B taking out the trash... KB sleeping on my lap...

One of my favorite things... Christmas music!!!

Around the house...
Diaper laundry... Deep clean the bathrooms... Kitchen floor... vacuum the carpets...

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... We just got back from the LAF Christmas party... It rained all day today, so B has to work tomorrow... maybe Chick-fil-A for dinner tomorrow (?)... Thursday night is the Class-A [leaders] Christmas party at the Greenes... Friday night we take the Class-A kids out for milk/cookies & to look at Christmas lights...

"Funny how a photograph can take you back in time,
to places and embraces you thought you left behind."

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Marmee hanging diapers on the line one beautiful morning...
