The Simple Woman's Daybook - 2-15-11
Outside my window...some nice warm sunshine, shining on my shoulders and back of my head. Feels wonderful.
I am thinking...that maybe the rest of the ice will melt by tomorrow. No more slipping and sliding!
I am thankful for...my hubby, who in spite of myself, loves me dearly.
From the kitchen...Yesterday, I made a casserole with cabbage, carrots, onions, Brown Jasmine Rice, lean hamburger and spaghetti sauce. It tasted like Stuffed cabbage, but without all that work! Yum.
I am wearing...a red shirt and black pants.
I am remembering... the smells in Grandma Pedde's kitchen. So strong and powerful, family came from all parts of town! Well, it seemed that way. Sausage and sauerkraut, homemade coffee cake - and suddenly the house was filled with family. How'd they do that? I'm sure my uncles all had a powerful sense of smell. Especially for home baked coffee cake fresh out of the oven.
I am going...no where!!! I need a car, I'm going stir-crazy.
I am reading...Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick - what happens when you dare to ask God for the impossible?
I am hoping...that I can take some of what I'm reading and it use to God's glory.
I am creating...or trying to create - a multi-client business schedule. It's either I do that, or remain cross-eyed!
I am hearing...One of my favorite songs playing in the background - it's on Marmee's Pantry's blog. "Oh, how He loves us so..."
I am noticing...the days are getting longer. YES
Around the house...laundry, making Chicken noodle soup, and work.
One of my favorite things...afghans! I apparently am collecting them. My dear, sweet friend Ellen just made me a beautiful one that matches our living room....AND keeps me toasty warm.
Plans for the week...nothing special. Just the usual.
Pondering these words...Vision: "a clear sense of purpose regarding what God wants to do through your life."
Scripture thought..."The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A DAY LIKE IT BEFORE OR SINCE....surely the Lord was fighting for Israel! (Joshua 10:13 & 14) (thus, the name of the book I'm reading)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
This is right in front of our house, just a little to the left, and it would have come down on the house. It's huge, like about a fourth of the entire tree branches! What with this nice warm up - are we done with the huge snows and ice? I'd be grateful if we were.
