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.
