The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#150~ 1/31/12
For Today . . .
Outside my window . . . lovely long-awaited sunshine! It may even get up to 52*F ~ record for this date is 54*F in 1917.
I am thinking . . . that I hope a local job opportunity for THE Man will work out. He now drives 1-1/2 hrs EACH way to work everyday. :-(
I am thankful . . . that THE Man even HAS a job!
In the kitchen . . . bread baking day. Also making a batch of laundry detergent.
I am wearing . . . jeans, long-sleeved shirt w/gray & pink hearts, socks.
I am creating . . . a peaceful, Christ-centered home.
I am going . . . to take DD#2 to work.
I am wondering . . . how long, Oh Lord?
I am reading . . . Bible; daily scheduled assigned reading from The Story. And reading Being George Washington.
I am hoping . . . that life will calm down enough that I will have more reading time. I used to read SO much & just haven't been able to. I can't believe how long it now takes me to finish a book! Sheesh.
I am looking forward to . . . getting a facial & mani/pedi tomorrow!! Woohoo!!! THE Man blessed me w/a gift certificate from CHRISTmas & tomorrow is the day. Ahhhh!
I am learning . . . new lessons on God's timing . . . whether I want to or not. :-/
Around the house . . . FINALLY finishing-up some trim work on the bathroom, the new wall cupboard for the bathroom should be finished this week.
One of my favorite things . . . singing ~ all by myself, in front of an audience, praise & worship w/the saints ~ what a wonderful gift of expression & worship the Lord has given us.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family time, work, a possible schedule change at work :-) Sunday worship w/the saints.
A favorite quote for the day . . . "Feminism is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands." ~G. K. Chesterton.
Scripture thought . . . "Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge." ~Psalm 119:54
A peek into my day . . .
My hammered dulcimer. I play as much as I can.
