 The Simple Woman’s Daybook,  February 2, 2009

~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

this morning from my window . . .
icicles, snow, daybreak

i am remembering . . .
a house full of teenagers and college students, hair dying, lots of food, laughter, snowball fights, sledding, Super Bowl, pesky cold, piles of shoes and boots, beef vegetable soup, plans for women’s ministry, friends, melting snow, brownie sundaes

i am thankful  . . .
a warm home to offer rest and recovery to college students, our daughter’s choices of friends, safe travels back to school, snowdays, homeschool, the Word of God

from the kitchen . . .
black & gold bagels, leftover dips & chips, coffee;, empty of coats, shoes, and boots; hats and gloves drying rack; bags of party trash, homemade ketchup, italian red sauce

I am thinking . . .
the silliness of groundhog day, women’s ministry, head cold goes away, how do successful & intelligent people ‘forget’ to pay their taxes, exercising,

I am reading . . .
Animal Farm  George Orwell

my favorite things . . .
clean house, homemade meals, frugal discoveries

a few plans for the rest of the week . . .
updating the grocery excel sheet, menu planning, finish painting fireplace,(yes, some of these were not finished last week J) Scripture for women’s ministry tea, developing a cleaning schedule, reorganizing my day — posting in the evening instead of the morning, recovering my morning routine, stripping guest beds and recovery from a full house this weekend!

studying a verse of Scripture. . .
You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” (Mark 13:13) 
“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority before all time and now and forever. Amen.” (Jude 24)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing . . .
