The Simple Woman’s Daybook

For today July 28, 2010

Outside my window….

they are saying it is going to be another hot, hot day. The temps are in the 90’s with the index at 103’. The nats are really bad outside due to how dry it is, good thing no mosquitoes' around.

I am thinking…

about my friend, today we will be attending her mother’s memorial. I miss her but I know she is no longer in the pain she dealt with daily. Everyday she praised our Heavenly Father.

I am thankful…

for my home, nothing makes sense that we are still in our home. We do know it can’t go on much longer. We should have lost it year or more ago. I pray we make it through this years Thanksgiving before it all comes to a end. I do know our God is in charge and he will take care of us. I believe this is why we are still here.

I am wearing..

a nightgown,will be showering soon to head out to the service.

I am remembering…

God’s promises

I am creating…

Sewing the blocks of the special quilt together with borders.  Have a date now that it must be completed by. Almost done hand quilting my other quilt. Looking forward to their completion to so I can post pictures for you to see.

I am praying…

for my man, who is out working daily for us.

From the kitchen…

tonight taco salad

tomorrow steak and hamburger for the children

I have food in the house just haven’t decided what when, except for me.

trying to stay on salad, yogurt, cereal. I have put on weight due to not getting out walking or riding due to the heat.

I am hoping…

to wrap up school as planned take a couple of days to complete the portfolio. Then stay on the track we are for awhile. The schedule is working but I know it will be changing in a few weeks.

From the learning rooms…

Daily math lessons, working on our language arts, also Heritage Studies

I am hearing…

two boys playing with their hamsters, baby girl getting ready to leave. Pipper the Quaker parrot having his say this morning.

Around the house…

the daily routine that it takes to run a home of six. Lots of laundry, dishes and pick up. Play time every evening for the younger ones. Late nights are happening due to hot days so we are making the most of the evening into the night.

One of my favorite things…

I am sure I have said this before. When my children are getting along, playing together nicely. Most of all seeing how they are there for each other. Pray as they grow up into adults they will continue to be there for one another.

A few plans for the rest of the week..

looking at going to watch sea turtles hatch tomorrow. School books is the priority around here these weeks. Some music practice for everyone and music reading for baby girl. Other then that just daily chores. No big plans around here.

Here is a picture I would like to share…

my sons pig he raised for meat. This week went to the butcher shop.

Hi Friend, My eyes welled up with tears as I read about what you're thankful for ~ because I can relate. Nothing on paper makes sense - financially for us either. God is so amazingly, faithful to us ~ I believe He will take care of you and your beautiful family. Thankyou for sharing this because now I know how to pray for you. {hugs} I'm sorry you have to go to a memorial today ~ but thankfully you know where your friend's mom is :) with Jesus! Praise Him! Blessings, EMichelle
