The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#87~ 8/17/10

For Today...

Outside my window...beautiful sunshine, wonderfully cool morning temps...in the 60's!! Can't wait for fall!!!

I am thinking...how blessed we are. Even in hard times...compared to so many...we ARE blessed.

I am thankful for...a husband who loves the Lord & his family.

From the kitchen...fresh 'maders' in abundance! I'm so glad b/c the chipmonks got ALL of my cucumbers, squash & zuchinni. :-/ Last year I had abundance, this year it seems that they finally found them. Bummer.

I am wearing...beige capris, green t-shirt, light-weight zip-up hoodie.

I am remembering…homeschool days. Can't believe this will be our 2nd school year since we've graduated our last one! After 16 years of homeschooling, it still feels weird.

I am going…to take DD#2 to work, do a local family's homeschool assessment, finish copying my sermon notes into my notebook, putter around the house, go to work w/the 'night' crew.

I am reading..."The Maker's Diet"; Bible: Psalms.

I am hoping...Hubbie will hear that he got 1 of those jobs he's interviewed for!

On my mind…children, my mom, $$.

I am creating...a Christ-centered home.

I am hearing...the radio, cidadas outside my window.

Noticing that…I forgot to make coffee!! Oh no! '-)

Pondering these words…"Sometimes the Lord's will 'gets in the way' of our own agenda. God's will has a way of taking us in a different direction than where WE think is best." ~from Sunday's sermon.

Around the house...dusting, sweeper, laundry...

One of my favorite things...cooking for my family. Since I've had to return to work outside the home, I only get to cook 2-3 times a week. Some women would think that was great...I really miss it...& so does my family! lol

A Scripture thought...Psalm 5:3 ~ "In the morning, O LORD, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you & wait in expectation." ALWAYS EXPECT the Lord to work!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week...home 'stuff', a few people coming over for me to do their homeschool assessments, work...anticipating answered prayer.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

This is a close-up of the photo I use for the little icon that comes up next my comments on your blogs. I enjoy this photo b/c it reminds me of my Grandma's kitchen...very homey. Love all those old cooking impliments!

  1. Isn't it kinda funny that I never picture my blog friends actually doing their housework. LOL I have never imagined you running the vacuum or washing the clothes. I always picture you cooking or gardening or writing. I guess I always figured you had one of those magic houses we all dream of that just cleans itself ;-) Hope that you hear good news about a job for your hubby. God bless you and your family, Kim. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Where do I find 1 of those 'magic homes'? '-) lol

  3. Hello Kim,
    I've been wanting to stop by and say "Hello" for some time. I miss being able to keep in touch. Life is very different for me now--the Lord always seems to be taking me and my family on different journey's as the years go by and we wait for His return. Change is not always easy-but Oh! so interesting! I took a few minutes from my eBay & Antique research and description writing to read the first page of your blog. Everything is so helpful, encouraging, and interesting-not to mention the great music! Wish I could read more. . .! Have a great day and sure do appreciate you stopping by the Cabin!
    With Love,
    Claudia O.
