Simple Woman Daybook

For Today...
Outside my Window... a fresh layer of "sugar snow". It looks like someone sprinkled glitter all over. It is sunny outside, but very deceiving! It is very cold!

I am thinking... about all the people in our lives who have been such a blessing to us. Even those through blogging that have been praying for us during this time.

I am thankful for... a warm home!! We are expecting temps in the single digits. God has so graciously provided many things for us over the past few months. I'm also thankful for the wonderful friendships we have developed in our Church. I'm so happy to finally be excited about going to Church!!

From the Learning Room…we are still working on catching up on missed school work.

From the kitchen... chicken in the crockpot.

I am wearing...sweatpants, sweatshirt, socks and slippers.

I am Creating… nothing at the moment. I am anxious to get back to my scrapbooks.

I am reading... my Bible, various cookbooks (which I shouldn't because I miss being in the kitchen)

I am hoping... for continued healing. My biggest obstacle is myself. I start feeling better and then I'm up and around doing too much. Later I pay for it.

I am hearing... the children at the table working on their assignments.

Around the house... too many things to name. I would like to finally get the tree down today!

One of my favorite things... is when I'm able to see God's hand at work in every area in my life. During the time in our lives it is easy for us to count our blessings.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Since I've been cleared to drive my daughter will start her speech classes again. That will give me some more freedom.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...our church had a cookie baking day the beginning of December. One of the ladies graciously volunteered to make gingerbread houses with the children. Here is Hannah's house. The children had so much fun.
