The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Monday, December 6th, 2010

Outside my window... The sun is shining brightly, the sky is clear and blue and it is hovering right around the freezing mark - which is a nice relief after temperatures around 20 degrees below freezing.

I am thinking...  Of how I need to tidy up the house and get some things put away.  It always amazes me how cluttered things get over the weekend.  How I'm looking forward to having hubby home for the next few days.  How much I'm enjoying the sun shining through my window.  Of the people who are struggling this Christmas season.

I am thankful for... The warmer weather and better roads for driving.

From the learning rooms... Study, study, study as there will be final exams in Biology and English in the next few weeks.

From the kitchen... Tonight will be Sweet & Sour Meatballs, Rice, Green Beans, Salad and probably Chocolate Pie for dessert.

I am wearing... My comfy tan cargo pants and a pink layered shirt.

I am creating... Some new recipes.

I am going... To pay some bills, make some lunch and tidy up the house

I am reading... A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George.  This is an excellent book that I borrowed from the church library but I will want to add to my own collection of books.  A definate must have.

I am praying for... My sister-in-law who is going through a break-up and needs to find a place of her own.

Pondering these words... From yesterday's sermon, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.  Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others."  (Philippians 2:3-4 NIV)

I am STILL hoping... A trip to the mountains????

I am hearing... The computers running.

Around the house... Christmas baking on the agenda for this week.  Yumm...

One of my favorite things... Seeing all the Christmas lights.

A few plans for the rest of the week...  This week is a quieter week for me and I am so looking forward to it.  Today we have a full day of school, then Tuesday & Wednesday will be housework, baking and date night with hubby :)), Thursday some school and probably more baking, and Friday & Saturday will be school and just relaxing.  Sunday is the children's program at church and I am looking foward to seeing that.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

My daughter took this picture last year.
