The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#116~ 3/29/11

For Today . . .

Outside my window . . .
a little gray w/some rain clouds moving in. The Mourning Doves (a.k.a. Rain Crows) are calling in the rain & we have a twitterpated couple of Red-Bellied Woodpeckers hammering away at our & our neighbors' trees.

I am thinking . . . how happy I am w/my new glasses. Just got the 2nd pair of my "get 2 pair for $99" special. The 1st pair to come in are a sorta-kinda trendy pair that are brownish plastic tops w/clear bottoms & this 2nd pair are simple little black wire-frames. It's so nice to have my bi-focals back!

I am thankful for . . .
MY HUBBIE'S NEW JOB!!!! Praise the Lord from Whom ALL blessings flow!!! He found out that he finally got a job (it's been a looong 2 yrs), it's 1-1/2 hrs away but we just can't complain b/c there is NOTHING around here.

From the kitchen . . .
bread in the oven, smells so good. I'm just going to make myself an egg sandwich since there's no one home but me.

I am wearing . . .
jeans, black shirt.

I am remembering . . .
when I didn't have to do my housework in such a hurry, before I had to go back to working outside my home. I enjoyed taking my time a little more than I get to now.

I am hoping . . .
for continued answered prayer.

I am creating . . .
a peaceful, Christ-centered home ~ a nest & place of rest for my family, a place of comfort & trust for our friends, & a place where those who don't know Christ will be drawn closer to him.

I am hearing . . . radio, a little wind, myself chomping on a little ice.

I am noticing . . .
that I'm getting a little pain at the back of 1 of my arches, next to my heel. It needs to go away . . . soon. :-/

Around the house . . .
general tidying, laundry, some baking; went to the Old Order farm & got milk & brown eggs yesterday, went to the bulk food store this morning & already put away my goods.

One of my favorite things . . . driving through the country & passing Old Order folks in their buggies.

Plans for this week . . .
family time, work, worship practice, Sunday worship w/the saints!

Pondering these words . . .
"Life is full of decisions, be willing to live with the consequences."

Scripture thought . . . ~ Gal. 6:4 & 14 ~ "Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, w/o comparing himself to somebody else . . . May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, & I to the world."

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

A Red-Bellied Woodpecker ~ this is the kind of woodpecker we have in our trees.

Read 100's of other Daybooks at Peggy's Simple Woman's Daybook!

  1. Loved your Daybook entry today. I have been so excited to actually hear birds singing; I really want spring here soon. It's been raining, snow mix and once a while the sun peaks through the clouds.
    We used to live in Spokane Wa. and we had woodpecker that would peck away at a steel chimney early in the morning. We had a very hard time getting rid of him. I know miss all o the little creatures that were around our home there. Too much city life here for me.
    I like simplicity of seeing the buggies going down the lane.
    Blessings to you for the memories today.

  2. PRAISE Jesus for your husband's new job! We spent 15 months searching for a job for my husband. It was a long 15 months, and we're still trying to get on our feet. God has taught us so much and been so faithful, but we are so grateful for a job! So happy for all of you!
