The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...The sun is shinning but it is bitter cold. 
The radio said -2. 
We were hit with snow again. :( 
And all public schools in our area are closed. 
(Yesterday was a holiday or they would have been closed too due to snow and ice.) 
Spring oh spring, please come soon! 

I am thinking... Of Joseph. 
How he was abused and betrayed, a slave, wrongly convicted, had no Bible to read, no church to attend, was surrounded by a worship lifestyle of other gods and non-Christian people...
yet he stayed true and focused on God. 
How can I be more like him?

I am thankful for...God's love.

From the learning rooms...We are in Weaver Vol. 5, chapter 6. 
A study of the miracles of Jesus. 
Currently we are studying the eyes and sight. 
Yesterday we dissected a cow eye!
I need to help the girls wrap up their items for Friday's Art Show, locate frames, etc.

From the kitchen... Coffee of course! 
Last nights dishes are still in the sink, Sis will have to attend them this a.m.
I will be starting the crock pot after I get around.
We had venison roast with potatoes and carrots last night, so today I want to turn leftovers into stew. 
I need to make bread and biscuits. Mmmmm....

I am wearing... P.j's, robe, slippers & blankie.

I am creating...A list of potential field trips. 
I need to make some calls today...

I am going...To really focus on my prayer life. 
I need to pray more often for my family.

I am reading... Your Defiant Teen - although honestly, I haven't picked it up this week! 
Dreamers - I should finish today - really enjoying this. 
Peter Pan (school) - we should finish today - wow was Tink nasty!
Joni (school) - I really like that the girls are enjoying this book so well. 
Six Hours One Friday (lit w/ Sis) 

I am hoping... For a good day.
Einstein is home and he has been rather surly lately...

I am hearing... Nothing but the whirr of the computer...

Around the house...Laundry needs done, like always! 
I spent time in our room yesterday and it looks so much better! :) 
Still things to do there though. 
Need to tackle Hunny's dresser again...

One of my favorite things... Hot biscuits with butter melting all over the tops....

A few plans for the rest of the week: School, work, Bell Choir & youth group, Art Show on Friday, Rabbit Show on Saturday, maybe watch Fireproof  Saturday night, Church.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
I never know what I will find when I download my camera! 


  1. I like the photo of the Downy Woodpecker (female, I think-no red)
    I enjoyed reading your daybook.

  2. Today makes my third week of participating with the Daybook entries. In order to get to meet a few of the women, I've set a goal of visiting the person before my entry and the person after my entry. This week, your name was directly preceding mine. I'm glad to meet you. Your blog is so pretty! And I love the way you have been creative in setting up your entry in the daybook. I especially enjoyed reading your thoughts of Joseph. I've so much to learn from him.

  3. Hot biscuits with butter melting all over? Girl, you're speaking my kinda talk! I've enjoyed reading your entry. Be blessed,
