The Simple Woman's Daybook

~february 16, 2009

Outside My Window... darkness ~ and remnants of the past week's big snow.

I am thinking... of what needs done this week before hauling the kids to my family's so Mitch and I can head to Florida.

I am thankful for... a home spacious enough to host dinners for 10 or 15 times 2. and for excellent reports, yet again, from each daughter's parent/teacher conference meeting.

From the kitchen... too many Valentine's Day desserts that will ultimately end up in the trash with me watching money be tossed to the wind but figuring that is better than pounds to my thighs.

I am wearing... some dark roots that will be blonde on Wednesday morning.

I am creating... energy and motivation to do some down-sizing.

I am going... off to Florida for a few days with My Beloved.

I am reading... Genesis 1 and 2...over and over again.

I am hoping... only in Jesus.

I am hearing... Corey Asbury's team worshiping Jesus.

Around the house... things are shaping up.

One of my favorite things... a husband who blesses me always.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: hosting our young adults for dinner and bible study tomorrow night. getting my hair done by our former stylist who is back in town for the week - yay! laundry and packing to leave on Saturday (back home), then Sunday (back home), then fly out on Monday morning.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... here's a few, recap of the month so far

Chandler's bowling Birthday party

Jaci's first band concert

the 'worst snow storm of the year' - that's what they were predicting,
I think it qualified.

Sounds like your busy...and full of thankfulness. Can you freeze some of your desserts...hate to see them hit the garbage can. I be the kids would love to eat them for breakfast, think how cool they'd think you were!

We need to do some downsizing as well. We have really felt the crunch this month. :(

I am so ready for warm weather to return. I wish we could at least have some of that snow to play in if we have to deal with the temps! :)
