The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ January 30, 2012

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .the kids were just filling up water balloons and chasing each other around the yard. Nice temperatures forecast for the entire week!
I am thinking. . .that a 48 hour day would better fit my to-do list!
I am thankful for. . .my home and it’s coziness.
In the kitchen. . .a roast is in the crockpot for dinner tonight, along with rice and a salad ~ maybe brownies for dessert.
I am wearing. . .pink t-shirt and jeans.
I am creating. . .still working on the January mini-quilt when I have the time and energy.
I am going. . .to take the girls to see “The Beauty and the Beast” at the theater this week, followed by a visit to Bath and Body Works.
I am wondering. . .where the lids to my containers disappear to – I can never seem to find the right lid when I need it.
I am reading. . .“Little Farm by the Sea” (Kay Chorao) with David and “Very Last First Time” (Jan Andrews and Ian Wallace) with Anna and Michael.
I am hoping. . .I can get this finished and posted today!
I am looking forward to. . .my movie night tonight after the kids are tucked in bed.
I am learning. . .how to use the new tv in the living room – remember when it was as simple as turning on the power and turning a dial? Now it takes a degree in electronics!!
Around the house. . .laundry and dishes being cleared, still those Christmas boxes waiting to go up in the attic (due to a missing lid!), kids back inside and now sitting around in 3D glasses watching “I Love Lucy” re-run.
A favorite quote for today. . .“He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.” ~ 1 Peter 2:24
One of my favorite things. . .“I Love Lucy” re-runs.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .ballet, ice skating, movies, schooling, sewing, cleaning and spending time outdoors in the 70 degree weather!
A peek into my day. . .see my picture below . . .

This is how my bed looks pretty much every day after we’re done with school!

  1. Wow, water balloons in January! We are supposed to have some warm temps close to 60 the next few days. I love I Love Lucy too. I couldn’t sleep last night and was watching it and laughing 🙂
