The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#100~ 11/30/10

For Today...

Outside my window...
dark, grey, rainy skies. It looks colder than it actually is & makes me shiver. Brrrrr!

I am thinking...
of all the things I have to do today.

I am thankful for...
another day & that no matter what happens, God is still on His throne!

From the kitchen...
vanialla biscotti coffee is brewing...mmm...ahhh!

I am wearing...
burgundy leggings & an over-sized burgundy sweat shirt. Comfort & warmth is the goal.

I am remembering...
that I need to practice CHRISTmas music for this weekend's festivities.

I am going...to take DD#2 to work, practice the hammered dulcimer music, go to work.

I am reading...
Bible: going to start a new study tonight, haven't decided which one.

I am hoping...
that my sweet DH finds a really good, well-paying job soon (since his lay off he is terribly under employed & tragically under paid); I can tell that he feels like he carries the weight of the world on his shoulders.

I am creating...a peaceful, Christ-centered home; hoping all who enter & leave feel up-lifted by the Holy Spirit's presence.

I am hearing...
inside: radio & DD#2 getting ready for work; outside my windows: wind & rain.

I am noticing that...
it's so dark that I need to turn on a light. AND...this is my 100th Simple Woman's Daybook!!!

Around the house...
tidying up, making lunch & Maggie (the dog) needs a good brushing...

One of my favorite thin
gs...that DD#1 is spreading her domestic wings since she got her own apt. She made a yummy casserole that she 'invented' for Thanksgiving & it was really good!

Plans for this week...
family time, work; on Saturday I'll be playing CHRISTmas music on the dulcimer in an historic house. Tipp City, Ohio has an annual Holiday Home walk-through every year where several historic homes & shops in the historic downtown let you walk through & see their decorations, & someone is playing some sort of background music in every stop while people walk through.

Pondering these words..."A calling is a shaping of a burden...a hand-in-glove fit." ~Ravi Zacharias.

Scripture thought...Isaish 6:8
~ "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here am I. Send me!'"

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

Blessings from Ohio...Kim<><


  1. Love your new blog background! I'm surely praying about that special job for your dear husband, Kim. Our men are the special treasures God has given us, yes?

    Would love to hear you play the dulcimer. Have you ever done a recording? I'd be sure to buy one!

    And congratulations on that 100th Daybook entry!

    Many hugs coming your way today.

  2. Dianna ~ I wish you could be here, too! Yes, I have been on recordings...only 1 w/the dulcimer, though ~ a Christmas album of a local musician. Ty & I have been on 5 of his CDs ~ both singing back grounds & me on flute (& dulcimer on the Christmas one). You can hear a cut from a couple of the CDs here: http://www.curtisalley.com/music.html If you scroll down to "Cry to Me" & "The Door" is me. lol

  3. I want to come and hear you play sometime! Someday, my sweet friend, someday we shall meet face to face :)

    stay warm!!

  4. So nice to meet you and have you visit us in the Hollow. I have great admiration for home schoolers. Mine are no longer little ones, all flown the nest.
    Your nest is very uplifting and inspirational, I will enjoy it! And you are a musician.We are great appreciators of music here in Hopalong Hollow, the Boogie Woogie Bunny Band entertains us with regularity. I play the harp,just barely. Good cheer to you, I will come again! Jeri

  5. I really want to come visit your house after all this... AND THE COFFEE? I'm so there. :)
