The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... It is a dreary morning, rainy and about 50'.
Last night we had tornado watches and thunder storms.

I am thinking... About my friends who lost their home yesterday in a fire.
About my aching jaw and what the dentist said.
About an email recieved from Einsteins school.
About if I can get on the wii before children wake up.

I am thankful for...A roof over our heads.
Each other.

From the learning rooms...Weaver vol. 5, chapter 7; The Master Storyteller.
We are reading about Corrie Ten Boom right now. What an amazing woman!
Yesterday was the last gym class for the school year.
So glad that Sis really enjoyed it. :)
They gave out "report cards" that showed their progress from the beginning to the end.
Hunny did not do well, :( but that wasn't really a surprise.

From the kitchen...Coffee is done, about ready for my second cup.
Need to figure out somethign for dinner.
It gets so old trying to plan meals...

I am wearing...p.j's and robe.

I am creating...

I am going... To work on the paper piles created from removing my computer from it's spot.
It's amazing how much accumulates around the computer!
Need to sort and try and get that area organized before the computer returns.

I am reading...Almost finished with Glorious Appearing.
Haven't touched Your Defiant Teen lately.
The Wedding Dress with Sis.
Corrie ten Boom, Her life, Her faith by Carol E. Carlson

I am hoping...God provides a better job for Good Ole Boy.

I am hearing...Well, I didn't make it. Bug is up and has put in Fireproof, so I hear that playing.
Sis is starting up the laptop.

Around the house... Of course much needs to be done.
It gets so depressing...

One of my favorite things... A steamy hot shower.

A few plans for the rest of the week: School, work, Sis was invited to a party, Good Ole Boy and I are going to shooting sports training this weekend.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...


  1. What a great woman to be studying with your children! A beautiful life's testimony.

    Hope you keep safe from the storms. Have a blessed week.

  2. I agree--it is so hard to come up with new meal ideas all the time. Last night my husband took us out as a gift for me to have a break. Not something we do often but I am in a rut!!

    I think we have the same family! Boy first, then three girls? Ours are 14, 11.5, 9 and 5

  3. Arlene, Thank you so much! That is very sweet. :)

  4. Sonja, Yes. Boy and three girls. Pretty close in ages too! :)
