The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today October 12, 2009

Outside my Window....Another very warm day. Beautiful clear skies with white fluffy clouds.

I am thinking....about all the messy work still ahead of us. Looking to be finish before Thanksgiving
I am Thankful for....the work God has been providing. Huge blessing!
I am leggings and oversize t-shirt with sock and sneakers. They are my work out clothes.
I am remembering.....yesterday's sermon. Makes me think of my dear friend who was there for me every single day about a year ago. Don't think I could have gotten through some of the things as easily, if God had not placed her there at that time. With God in her heart and words of blessing and reassurance of him.
I am is Monday so we are off to orchestra. No earns to run before hand. So I am able to concentrate on things around the house more.
I am Reading....with all intentions well to finish my Nicholas Sparks book. I have not even opened it.
I am hoping...not to allow the construction to disrupt our school to much.
On my mind....Work, work, work..I hear the seven drawf song "Off to work we go High ho high ho....."
From the learning, math and real living. My kids will be able to build their own homes by the time they graduate.
Noticing that....The days are changing even if the weather is not.
Pondering the words....of yesterday. The ways to end up in the "pit". God is always there with his hand out reached to us. What pastor was preaching on was were I have been. The pit of despair, having to find my praise through all the trials. Praise him all the time. Found even in the worst times, there would be something to praise.
From the kitchen....two fresh loaves of bread, fresh brownies and sloppy Joes are planned for dinner.
Around the house...Poppy was moved into her new room which needs to painted from boy to girl just for her. Then hang all little pretties.
One of my favorite things....having room to walk thru the house with out feeling like a maze.
From my picture journal.
A picture, not the best, but of our living room with the fireplace gone from the middle. Husband is talking a skylight. I am so excited be able to see and hear rain. Have much more need light.
It is all open now, as you can tell there is much work left to be done.

I agree that thinking on the past does not help (or at least dwelling on painful past memories). I also like when you said, "even in the worst times, there would be something to praise." So true!

Wow! I can't believe it's done already. OK, I guess I can beleive you have it done, we would have taken several years to get it done.
Can't wait to see it.
Great header picture.
Tea sometime?
