Simple Woman's Daybook- Nov.17 edition


Each Monday I plan to join with Peggy from the The Simple Woman and many others who are celebrating the joy of simplicity. Here's a peek into my life right now...

FOR TODAY (November 17, 2008)...

Outside my window...the sun is rising... it comes up late in the little valley we live in. I believe it is going to be a sunny, but chilly day.

I am thinking...about Heb.12:4, "You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin." I read in Hebrews this morning in my quiet time and was convicted about being wholehearted in my devotion and walk with the Lord. Am I willing to strive to resist in even "small" areas of sin in my life that I can tend to "wink" at?

I am thankful for... all of the little (and big!) noises in my house this morning~ I love having a big, busy household!

From the learning rooms...we will be focusing on finishing strong this week in school. We will take next week off for Thanksgiving~ hooray!

From the kitchen... basic foods on a busy homeschool day... oatmeal for breakfast, baked potatoes for lunch and a crockpot meal for this evening.

I am wearing... favorite floral overalls, white long-sleeved T-shirt and new white tennis shoes.

I am creating... black velvet dresses for Hannah and Abbie who have a piano recital on Friday this week. Plus beginning plans for some "year in review" photo albums which will be gifts (shhhhhh.....)

I am going... to take some children to piano later this afternoon and then should be home the rest of the week! Yay!

I am reading... the books listed on my blog home page, plus spending time in God's Word in little breaks in my day. I am aware that when I am not desiring to spend time in God's Word, I am in danger of becoming complacent in my walk with the Lord.

I am hoping... to complete our school work in a timely manner today. I really run out of energy for school after two or three pm!

I am hearing... Donut Man music playing in the kitchen as the children eat breakfast.

Around the house... cleaning and planning for Thanksgiving next week.

One of my favorite things... how cozy and warm our house is with the woodburning stove on winter mornings.

A few plans for the rest of the week:sewing, school, other Christmas crafting, baking for Thanksgiving, piano recital on Friday.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
