The Simple Woman's Daybook


For Today: Feb. 8, 2010


Outside my window.........................It looks cloudy and cold.

I am thinking.........................How HE tells us that all things work together for good and I am counting on that.

I am thankful for..........................a morning off from work but also thankful for our business.

I am wearing........................P.J.'s!

I am remembering..............the movie I watched yesterday, Wuthering Heights (1939). I LOVED it.

I am going...................to be home this morning.

I am currently reading.........................The Prodigal by Beverly Lewis.

I am hoping ..................................for a peaceful day with no surprises.

On my mind..........................."Little D"(my youngest grandson) walking like a big boy!

Noticing that......................as I have gotten older I don't need or want as much.

Pondering these words........................."For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."2 Timothy 1:7

From the kitchen.................nothing right now, but will be hamburgers & fried potatoes!

Around the house..............Laundry is done, ironing caught up, vacuuming done! I will be concentrating on dusting today. (I set the timer and spend 15 minutes per flylady!!)

One of my favorite things...........................staying home.

I am wishing.........................my sweet MOM
a very Happy Birthday tomorrow!

I am praying for.............................a lost lamb to find their way to Jesus.

From my picture journal..........................Me, my husband and our grands!!!
We are so blessed.

I have enjoyed reading about your lovely Grandmother. How lucky you are to have both a Mother and a Grandmother! And I am interested in buying one of her quilts. How to I purchase one?

I want to be like your Grandmother when I grow up!
