The Simple Woman's Daybook - 1

I have joined in the fun at The Simple Woman's Daybook. This is a place where we get to gain a glimpse into the lives of others who are focusing on the simplicity and beauty in everyday moments. You should check it out and come along!

FOR TODAY,  Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Outside my window...the sun is coming up, squirrels are running about, and two cardinals are playing in the holly bush. The cardinals remind me of where I grew up and makes me smile.

I am thinking...about how amazing it is that I've been able to read my Bible, respond to some e-mails, and play on my blog and still no children are awake! Thank you Jesus!

I am thankful for...a clean house...for now!

From the learning rooms...handprint turkeys with poems attached, making no-bakes as part of "cooking", Letter of the Week , Hooked on Phonics, sight word practice, lots of fun books to read, cookie sheet math, maze and puzzle book, pattern blocks, Blend Ladders  and playing outside!

From the dish chicken and stuffing and broccoli with shredded parmesan and butter..and making no-bakes with my kiddies - yum!

I am wearing...a Seabird t-shirt and pajama pants.

I am creating...a place of comfort and peace for my family.

I am the park with my kids today to feed the ducks if they are there.

I am reading...The Shofar Blew by Francine Rivers and Adopted for Life by Russell Moore

I am be able to get the kids everything we would like to get them for Christmas.

I am remembering...that Christmas is not about the gifts we give but about the ultimate Gift that God gave us in His Son Jesus Christ. And that my kids will survive if they don't get everything they'd like or that we'd like to give them. We are blessed beyond measure already!

I am hearing...the sound of the dryer whirring and the fan in the hallway buzzing.

Around the house...Ive been focusing on one area at a time. So far we have a clean, organized garage and laundry room. Today...who knows? Maybe the junk drawer(s)....

One of my favorite things...pot stickers in the frozen section at Wal-Mart...I'm slightly addicted...

A few plans for the rest of the tonight - hanging with teenagers then off to choir practice, tomorrow - my hubby's off day! We have  a banquet for a local pregnancy center where my husband is on the board, Friday - playdate with our homeschool group, Saturday family time and possibly lunch with a friend, Sunday church :)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Tater Tot was one 3.5 here...seems so long ago...and just like yesterday at the same time....

I love the song that played when I opened up your blog. I know some people don't care for music on blogs, but I enjoy it. Gives me a hint of what the person is like(Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful). I also enjoyed your daybook and your blog! I hope you have a wonderful day!
