The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window... it is snowing! April 6th, and my flowers are coming up, the trees are leafing out, and it's near freezing and snowing. Sigh.
I am thinking...tomorrow is Senior Pictures and some of the pics are to be outside. Umm...I didn't want it to be in her old winter jacket!!
From the learning rooms... zooming toward the finish!! Just 2 more chapters of American Government, some more English review, and another book report or 2.
I am thankful for... the good things still happening in spite of the economy, jobs, continued crime and horrible illnesses. I'm thankful that our pooch is still with us!! Almost lost him Thursday night.
From the kitchen... I think we will do a chef salad with chicken, swiss cheese, lots of fresh veggies, and light ranch dressing - and maybe some rolls.
I am wearing... caught me again! Still in my pj's - late start...no other excuse.
I am reading... Exodus, Psalms 50, 51, and 52, and Mark. Have you ever noticed in Exodus how many times God says "If you will......I will?" Have you ever noticed how often he extends new promises even after Israel disobeyed again? He forgives and forgives and forgives. I know He'd rather we just obey..there is such blessing in that. But I'm thankful He remembers we're imperfect, sin-bent, humans - and extends grace and mercy.
I am hoping... for a change in the weather for tomorrow. Something above45 and sunny would be nice.
I am creating...a mess in my scrapbook area as I have started dd's homeschool scrapbook. 5 pages done!
I am hearing... the furnace going. Not that that's a pleasant sound...it only reminds me that it's cold enough I need to run it!!
Around the house... something smells like plastic heating up. We've been through every room trying to track the smell down - and no such luck. Pray we figure it out!
One of my favorite things... is writing and blogging. I have enjoyed this so much!
A few plans for the rest of the week... Sr. Pictures if the weather cooperates tomorrow, some shopping at Hobby Lobby, volunteering at church, and Good Friday service.
