Trying something new and simple

I've come across this "Simple Woman's Day Book" recently and have enjoyed reading the entries on my friends' blogs. For more information, see http://thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/

FOR TODAY October 13, 2009

...Outside my window - The sun makes it look like a warmer day than it really is. Snow flurries yesterday!

...I am thinking - about a story I'm writing. I'm stuck.

...I am thankful for - God's incredible blessings - a beautiful home, land, wonderful children and husband, a reliable job for Mike, provision for our needs, and a precious little one that God is knitting within me. :)

...From the learning rooms - found a great website this morning on teaching spelling. I have children who are voracious readers. I thought spelling would come naturally. Um, maybe not.

...From the kitchen - our neighbor filled up our kitchen with apples and my mother in law blessed me with more jars. Just have to get going on making the apple sauce.

...I am wearing - my white blouse and my purple and blue peasant skirt and my warm turquoise wool sweater.

...I am creating - dresses for customers and working on a new song

...I am going - no where. :) Snugged in our warm house while we get over our colds.

...I am reading - Bible reading today: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=jeremiah%2022:1-23:20;2thessalonians%201:1-12;psalm%2083:1-18;proverbs%2025:11-14&version=NLT and DragonLight by Donita K. Paul

...I am hoping - to see my mom, sister, nieces and nephews later this month!

...I am hearing - my Judy Rogers cd (a wonderful gift from a reader here!), my daughter washing dishes and the little ones playing

...Around the house - Micha and Terran are reading Ivanhoe for their literature class, Jeremi is just coming in from taking out the trash, Lissa is working on spelling, Juli's doing dishes and planning lunch, Abi's playing the computer, and Manda and Emi are playing with Emi's "Little Einsteins" toys.

...I am wondering about - our country's future. Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!

...One of my favorite things - afternoon naps :)

...A few plans for the rest of the week: apple sauce! lots of apple sauce. :)

From my photos...

I'm so thankful for the relationships between my oldest and youngest children!

  3. Congratulations on the new baby...I also love peasant skirts...so comfortable.



  4. Oh! Congratulations! I just read! I thank GOD for HIS blessing to you. May this little one grow ever so beautiful, full of grace and joy. May your little one love GOD and bring you comfort; and may you always remember the "treasures" GOD has stored for you in Heaven. As you grow towards your Heavenly reward, may your earthly "treasures" call you "Blessed". Happy early Mother's Day. I will pray each day for your peace and health. Love, your eternal friend in Christ, Theresa in Louisiana

  5. Congratulations!!! It has been awhile since I visited your blog so I am catching up :) Isn't Judy Rigers wonderful? We are good friends with her sister who is just as good a singer and they've even callaborated on a few cd's! My brother-in-law is a deacon at the church that Becky's husband (Joe Morecraft) preaches at. We just love them!!!
