The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... February 8th, 2010

Outside my window... the sun is shining and I am hoping for steadily warmer temperatures. With Georgia winters, you have cold days, and then warm days, it really quite tricky to know when spring is actually coming. My hubby and I are really ready for it though. We are done with all this rain too! It's making it very hard to get his shop built!

I am thinking... honestly, it's to early for me to be thinking. I stayed up late again, and I haven't had any coffee yet this morning. It's decaf, but it still is what gets me going in the morning...it's a mental thing. Maybe I should be thinking that I've got to start going to bed earlier!

I am thankful for... my Mary Kay products. I was able to get them ALL again, plus some new toner I hadn't tried before. My skin looks sooooo much better when I use all my Mary Kay cleansers and moisturizers on a daily basis!

I am wearing... pajamas, black with white polka dots.

I am remembering... how fast time goes. My birthday is tomorrow. Even though I feel like it's been ages since my last birthday(I guess because I don't really think about or celebrate my birthday) but that means our anniversary is not far behind, and I can't believe we are almost at another anniversary already. We will have been married for 11 years on the 20th!

I am going... to take my oldest to his piano lessons tonight. Hopefully, no where else. I could use some time this house, lots to do.

I am currently reading... Taking a break from Disciplines of a Godly Woman, so I can read "Created To Be His Help Meet" by Debi Pearl. I checked it out from the library, so I only have so long to get it read. It's been really good so far. I need to focus more on my husband and less on myself. I can be very selfish at times, unfortunately...I'm working on it.

I am hoping... to one day be the Help Meet that God created me to be! How wonderful it would be if my husband could say that there wasn't a thing more that I could do for him, that I'm not already doing!

On my mind... so happy that the Saints won the SuperBowl last night! Don't get me wrong, I love the Colts, and I'm sad that they lost, but I was routing for the Saints. Only one person on that team had a SuperBowl ring, and they have worked so hard since Katrina to bring up the spirits of their people, and I just think they really deserved it. I think it was obviously meant to be too!

Noticing that... my dogs bark too much! Any noise that they aren't used to and they are barking their heads off, all 3 of them. It's really frustrating as we (and they) are getting used to having new neighbors.

Pondering these words... I have a new place at the top of my blog where I am putting weekly quotes. These are the words that I ponder throughout the week!

From the kitchen... I have more dishes to do, and the floor needs mopping today. I need to make a meal plan too, of what I want to have for dinner each day this week. I filled up a good portion of our new freezer, and that should really help with meals now!

Around the house... very quiet, except for the dogs. The kids are still sleeping because they went to bed late too. I really need to wake them up.

One of my favorite things... quiet time with my coffee and Bible. Very precious time!

From my picture journal...

  1. Happy Day Before Your Birthday, young lady! Another year to be thankful for.

    I saw this morning on the news that alot of states are getting hit with more snow. Hope you're not one of them. It has been a colder than usual winter, and I think just about everyone is ready for spring.

    My son was sooo thrilled the Saints won! I'm glad 'cause he's glad - truth is, I don't follow football so it really didn't matter much to me. But it was great to see him so excited.

    Have a blessed week, and thanks for your prayers!

  2. Happy Early Birthday! I hope that you have a special day!

    I am ready for the warmer weather, too!!!!! :)

  3. Early Happy Birthday wishes to you! I hope you will have a great day. I also wanted to tell you how glad I am that you have kept your blog. I enjoy it, and was so upset when I heard what had happened. Take care. :)
