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

FOR TODAY... from Sue's Daybook

Outside my window... the trees are bare and the sky is gray.

I am thinking... how much I am going to miss my hubby while he's away this week on his next business trip.

I am thankful for... my hubby's job, but wish it wasn't so taxing on him.

I am wearing... brown cotton pants, pink long-sleeved cotton shirt and white cardigan

I am remembering... to pace myself this week between work, housework and rest.

I am going... to try and book tickets to a "dinner" theater matinee for this Sat with my sis, niece, nephew and me.

I am reading... My Bible, Crazy Love by Francis Chan for study, and Simply Christmas (a compilation of 4 short stories) for pleasure.

I am hearing... nothing but the hum of my laptop.

I am hoping... hubby doesn't get sick from all this airline travel and crazy business schedule.

I need... to call DELL and complain about this laptop for the umpeenth time.  It has been nothing but problems since I got it last Christmas!

On my mind... not too much ~ I'm too tired to think.

From the learning rooms... God is my portion and my inheritance!

Noticing that... the house somehow looks warmer and more magical with Christmas lights.

Pondering these words... God is good!

From the kitchen... my tea awaits me.

I am creating... baby gifts for the triplets... started the last one... hopefully should get it done in time... a month to go!

Around the house... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

One of my favorite things... snuggling with my hubby ~ gonna miss him this week!

A few plans for the rest of the week... work, reality tv, small group, visiting Krissy in the hospital, hopefully going to the Christmas dinner theater Sat afternoon (gotta call now!), hug hubby when he gets home Saturday!!!

From my picture journal... Christmas has come to my house...

The living room and dining room all decked out for the Holidays

Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of November 9, 2009

FOR TODAY... from Sue's Daybook

Outside my window... it is a beautiful Fall day with sun shining and temperatures expected to be unseasonably warm.

I am thinking... that I don't really enjoy working outside the house.

I am thankful for... my sweet hubby who works so hard that I don't HAVE to work outside the house full-time.

I am wearing... brown cords, pink t-shirt and brown cardigan.

I am remembering... not much of anything today.

I am going... off to work soon.

I am reading... My Bible, Crazy Love by Francis Chan for study, and A Time to Gather by Sally John for pleasure.

I am hearing... Rush of Fools on my XM radio player online.

I am hoping... hubby's plane isn't late coming in on Tuesday night as it's already scheduled for 11:59pm (and I'm picking him up at the airport)

I need... to finish getting ready for work soon.

On my mind... too many things to pinpoint down to just one.

From the learning rooms... God is teaching me how BIG He is and how small and insignificant I am in the grand scheme of the universe... YET... He loves me and sent His Son to die for me!  That's some Crazy Love!

Noticing that... time flies way too fast and working 10-2 almost every day really messes up your days.

Pondering these words... Holy, holy, holy is the Lord, God Almighty.

From the kitchen... the dishwasher is now empty and the kitchen is tidied up before I head out the door

I am creating... baby gifts for the triplets... just sewing up the 2nd one for Baby Girl.  One more to go and only 6 weeks to finish (hopefully).

Around the house... it smells of paint as I was busy last week painting the dining room table legs and this weekend a little accent table.

One of my favorite things... spending time with my BFF and her 2 yr old daughter (my god-daughter), Little Miss "H".

A few plans for the rest of the week... work, watching DWTS tonight with my neighbor, picking up hubby at the airport, lunch with my 3 sisters (my sis from NC is up!!), hosting dinner with my sis & bro-in-law from NC, small group pot-luck, ladies group and repacking hubby up for the next business trip.

From my picture journal... my latest paint project...

an accent table in the living room,
changed from "Soldier Blue" to "Coal Black"

Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of Nov 2, 2009

For Today:

Outside my window: it's starting to get dark and the sky is gray... daylight savings time is history for another year.

I am thinking: and wondering if it's too early to start pulling out the Christmas decorations now that Halloween is over?

From the learning rooms: I am an heiress to the King of Kings.  I am a Levite, set apart for God.  He has not forgotten me but has said that He is my portion.  He is all I need!

I am thankful for: all of God's amazing blessings, spiritually, physically, materially and on and on and on...

From the kitchen: I'll need to go start supper soon.  It's Manwich night tonight.

I am wearing: jeans, pink-t-shirt and green hoodie

I am reading: my Bible and Francis Chan's book, "Crazy Love".

I am hoping: the week goes slowly because I don't have to work until Friday.

I need: to exercise.

I am creating: make that "I WAS creating"...very special baby items for 3 very special babies on the way. I'm almost done the second! (was knitting like a fiend... but still have to take a break until my back is feeling stronger and then I have to pace myself better)  I'm getting a little anxious as time flies by but my back is starting to feel better so I think if I pace myself I can get back to knitting!

I am hearing: the dull roar of traffic on the street outside - ahhh rush hour in the big city!

Around the house: The living/dining rooms are coming together beautifully as we just found a buffet/hutch to get my china and crystal in their own "home".  No more boxes!  Also found a great coffee table for the living room!

One of my favorite things: Seeing the adorable little ones trick or treating on Halloween in their sweet little costumes.  Not a big fan though of the bigger kids, especially when they are dressed in evil costumes.

A few plans for the rest of the week:reality t.v., chiropractor, some  housework and laundry, work on my final assignment, and ladies' group.  Oooh... and work on Friday.

Here is a picture thought to share with you:

My sister's dog modeling one of his Halloween costumes... 
and rather embarrassed by the whole charade!
