Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~ Sept 29th 2008

Outside my window. . .warm, clouding up to rain. Ashleigh is playing softball with a little neighbor girl.

I am thinking. . .about my Dad. He's part of every passing thought. Everywhere I turn something else reminds me of him. I wonder what he is doing right now...with Jesus!

From the learning room. . .its hard for me to focus on anything right now, so easing back into Did some phonics bookwork, a little memorization with Ashleigh. Logan learned about music, sang some songs; and had some "nature study" chasing a grasshopper around the backyard.

I am thankful for. . .my amazing family. Mom, two brothers and two sisters, in-laws, how close we are.

From the kitchen. . .trying a new recipe for dinner tonight. Chicken Penne in Smoky Chili Cream Sauce. Found it in a magazine, while waiting for my new great-niece to be born Sat evening.

I am wearing. . .blue capris, blue t shirt, wet hair...

I am creating. . .word clouds on Wordle. I just discovered it this morning. Thanks to Brin over at My Messy Thrilling Life. You type in a bunch of words...random words or a quote, etc...and wordle creates a word cloud, that you can print or do anything you want with. You get to choose the font and colors...was too much fun. I want to make a collection of words for each child to hang in their room. Would be cool used for scrapbooking too.

I am going. . .to try and get back into writing on my blog. This past 10 days it has been simply too hard.

I am reading. . .To Love, Honor and Vacuum by Sheila Wray-Gregoire; The Blue Parakeet by Scot McKnight; alot of emails that I am behind in.

I am hoping. . .to figure out how to keep an "almost" two yr old from climbing up on the kitchen counters.

I am hearing. . .air conditioner running. Logan talking to his toys.

Around the house. . .a big mess from a busy week. Laundry that needs folded.

One of my favorite things. . .Millstone Pumpkin Spice Coffeebeans

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .catching up on cleaning & laundry; packing for 3 days in St Louis at a ladies conference; shopping and meal planning for Fred & kids while I gone.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .my new great-niece, Jada.

Again, I am sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you are going through. I hope that the coming days are easy on you.

I am truly sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers will be with you. Even though time and miles separate us I think of you often and know that you will always be my sister in Christ.
