Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of March 16, 2009

For Today:

Outside my window: the sun is shining and the temperature today is supposed to get up into the high 40's! WOOHOO!!

I am thinking: that I hope I don't forget to pack anything I'll need on our trip to North Carolina.

From the learning rooms: I'm learning that I am more like some of the characters around the Cross than I would have thought. Like Peter, I often deny my Lord, even when I think I never will, other times I'm as devoted as Mary, pouring out my life for Jesus. Other times I'm like Judas, and betray Him. Our series at church on the characters around the Cross has been very revealing!

I am thankful for: my sister's generosity to allow us to come dogsit for her and stay at their house for a cheap vacation!

From the kitchen: my vanilla black tea is staying warm under the tea cozy in my teapot, waiting for me to come grab another cup this morningSipping Tea

I am wearing: Okay Denise... ya ready?? I'm wearing jeans Shock (and not jammies) with a pink long sleeve tshirt and pink fuzzy hoodie and fuzzy socks.

I am reading: my Bible (in Deuteronomy now); I'm getting back into reading Behind the Stories, and also reading Karen Kingsbury's Every Now and Then.

I am hoping: that hubby will relax in NC and we'll have a safe and fun trip.

I am creating: another baby blanket for the 2nd of my pregnant friends. KnittingThis one I'm sort of making up from a pattern I found online. I'm making it a colorful patchwork (since we don't know the sex of the baby) with 14 balls of yarn going at once. A little confusing at times, but it's turning out REALLY cute if I do say so myself.

I am hearing: Carrie Underwood sing, "I Told You So" on CMT.

Around the house: are little piles of things to be packed into the car and others to be put away before we go.

One of my favorite things: is the Olive Garden. I can't wait for us to go eat there in NC with the gift certificate we got from my sister at Christmas! Italian Restaurant We don't have OG up here in Ontario anymore so we have to get our fill when we head across the border.

A few plans for the rest of the week: finish packing, cleaning, get together with friends tonight, drive to NC, REST, eat, watch reality tv, shop... REST!

Here is a picture thought to share with you:

Good Morning, Sue,

I love your photos. You make me want to get more creative in taking my pics. Those tulips are beautiful and what a pretty arrangement you've done.

I was also thinking of the abundant life you're living. I recognize that in you. ... thinking of others, serving others, obedience to God, receiving the love sweet.

God bless your trip to North Carolina! I'm praying you both find it to be fun, relaxing and fulfilling.
