The Simple Woman’s Daybook


For Today March 15, 2011
Outside my window…..
The children are out playing, the windows are open sun has begun it’s slow descent into night. The weather has been just so beautiful, trees are growing new sprouts. The pines have started growing Easter crosses. I missed them last year, don’t want to this year. God shows us his promises in so many ways.
I am thankful…..
for a wonderful weekend away from home. Especially to our Uncle Bob for coming and staying with the animals. For fixing the little projects around here there is never anytime for. We really wanted to keep him but he insisted he must go back home.
I am thinking….
about how I have laid things at God’s feet and he has always picked it up and handled everything. I know God has been providing our home for us, not sure where the end is. But I am getting somewhat excited to see where he moves us too. My husband and I have been going over some options. One I like is being closer to Orlando but close to my SIL Arla and my nieces and nephew.
From the learning rooms….
a lot of time last week went into music, so this week we are working on getting back into our schedule. Today we made sure our day began with Bible, then LLATL and math. Really made a difference in our life when I changed up and stuck to my guns of Bible must be first no matter what happens in the day. God blessed me with lessons that pertained to issues I was dealing with my children.
From the kitchen…
tonight corn beef and cabbage, a steak for hubby he doesn’t care for corn beef. Chicken fajitas tomorrow and maybe homemade pizza this week.
I am hoping and praying….
for healing for my friends grandfather. He is in isolation again in rehab due to another serious infection that you catch in rehabs. He is so miserable he is not one for confinement he loved going outside and for little walks.
I am creating…
working on the afghan for hubby I am disciplining myself, no working on my quilt until he has his afghan. I have started working on a special gift for someone very very special to me. Has sometime so I am not dedicating set time to it, which is another incentive to finish up projects.
I am hearing….
my boys laughing together as they play and my music love the song on right now, Look’in for Love by Johnny Lee. Reminds me of my husband and I when we meant.
Around the house….
we are all unpacked and with the new washer laundry is done in a blink of an eye. Dinner is ready and waiting for daddy to arrive. When I am done with my daybook I am going to take time to work on my husbands afghan. Love having the ladies at prayer/crochet pushing me to the finish.
Few plans for the rest of the week….
school with the children, a run to the store not sure when. Thursday I am having a day at the fabric store with a  friend. I am dropping my four at their Mimi’s.
Here is a picture I would like to share…

Hello there! Thought I'd pop over for a visit and it seems like you (as do we) have a few birthdays back to back, too. :-) Like is full of adventures, isn't it. Congrats on the Orchestra weekend, new washer/dryer and the birthday celebrations!

Blessings ~
