The Simple Woman’s Daybook


For today: Tuesday January 11, 2011

Outside my window… Snow! Fresh, clean snow. I love how new snow is so bright!

I am thinking… about cleaning and organizing and what’s next on my to-do list… but this is always on my mind. :-) And about the results of my Strengths Finder test. I love learning more about myself. These results are amazing! (I’ll blog more about this later.)

I’m creating… a memorize-the-book-of-Philippians! Moleskin Memory! Thanks to Ann’s post. I’m also creating lots of plans in my head. Ideas for many paintings are swirling around.

I am going… to shovel the sidewalk if I can before Lydia wakes up from her nap.

I am thankful for… our washing machine. With the illness we dealt with last week and still are some today… I don’t know what I would have done without our old, small, precious washing machine!

From the kitchen… not much is happening. I made a menu plan last week but didn’t make half of what was on it. The stomach bug saves tons on the grocery budget! Also I think my kombucha scoby may have died :-( Sad day. Just might be knocking on my MIL’s door for a “baby” soon!

I am hoping… for an opportunity and place to get out my paints again in the near future. Painting makes me happy. And I’m hoping that someday we’ll live near a pool. I miss my laps.

I am reading… The Year of Living Biblically and the Bible. I’ve started several other books but they are offically on hold as I focus on finishing things in all areas of my life and household.

I am hearing… the neighbor on his 4 wheeler, I think, and the fan for the heater.

Around the house… it’s mostly clean. The basement has toys everywhere -you’d never know I put 2 bins of toys away last night! And our 2nd bathroom now has a toilet again! Despite feeling like the flu was coming on my husband finished up the tile around it and put it in last night! I almost forgot that room was down there… so many things came up preventing us from finishing up down there… too many to even list. But SO excited the end is near! We have a weird transition strip area to figure out and a few tiles to lay in the entryway spot!

One of my favorite things… honey in my chai. It’s a little thing, but it is on my list of favorite things. I think our honey order will be in soon!! It’s been so long without it! Another favorite thing… getting my groceries delivers, esp. on snowy days like these!

A few plans for the rest of the week… Awana tomorrow night, maybe shopping for boots later in the week and a little photoshoot fun on Saturday. (I’m not doing the shoot… but I might appear in it!! Who knows?) :-)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…

    You can knock on MIL's door anytime–whether you need a scoby or not! :-)
