Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of February 23, 2009

For Today:

Outside my window: the sun is shining high in the sky but Brrrr the temperature is chilly (14 degrees but it feels like -6).

I am thinking: how lovely it is to be inside when the temperature is that cold outside!

From the learning rooms: I am learning to be more intentional and focused in life. Time is running at lightening speed and there are more demands on my life than I have time for so focus is needed, priorities reorganized and purpose more defined.

I am thankful for: my health. Last Tuesday was the worst sick day I think I've ever had since we got married. Even strep throat at Christmas was better than the flu I had. Man... we really take our health for granted, don't we? At least I do!

From the kitchen: the dishwasher is on and my floor is crying out for a little attention from the broom.

I am wearing: Okay... believe it or not... I actually got dressed before I came down to write in my blog this morning - hee hee. I am wearing blue sweat pants, pink long sleeve T and a green hoodie. I have on fuzzy grey socks too.

I am reading: my Bible (just finished Leviticus this morning) I'm also reading Behind the Stories, a book where Christian novelists talk about what inspired them to write. (Some good tidbits in there!)

I am hoping: to figure out what my inspiration is for writing and get down to the business of producing something.

I am creating: the same as last week: a baby blanket still for one of my 2 pregnant friends. It's a slow go because my wrist and back can't take too many rows at one time so it's a very long process it seems. Perhaps only 1 of my friends will end up with a homemade knitted something. :-(

I am hearing: the dishwasher in the kitchen.

Around the house: is a whole whack of things for me to do, having been waylaid last week sick. Gotta get a move on that I guess!

One of my favorite things: is being able to spend copious amounts of time with my hubby and never get sick of being together! Even sick, we still enjoyed spending time together (albeit nowhere near as close as we normally are ;-))

A few plans for the rest of the week: clean my house, write my next assignment, knit, read, Abide,... oooh... and a Marriage Seminar (Live Simulcast) on Saturday!

Here is a picture thought to share with you:

How much longer 'til Summer?

LOL, I had to come on over and see if you were wearing the same thing this week, ha ha:) Did you deliberately get dressed so you wouldn't have to write you're wearing the same ;)
I feel like summer is almost here for us, we will have 80 degree weather some days this week... crazy isn't it!

Sue said...

I totally did Denise... I stopped myself from coming down in my jammies because I didn't want to be in the same thing again... although now that I think about it... the bottoms would have been different - not Snoopy ones this week ;-)

Hi Sue! So glad that you feel better. And yes, I think all of us take health for granted, until we feel ill. I loved your 'from the learning rooms'...good stuff! Sending you big hugs!

Hi Sue! I'm so glad you are over your flu and back on on your feet. Love the lemonade pic, too. I am so ready for summer! Love ya!
