The Simple Woman's Daybook - February 1, 2010

The Simple Woman's Daybook
February 1, 2010

For today:

Outside my window...
today was full of sunshine and blue skies. The birds were out in full force feeding at the feeders.

I am thinking...
about the cardinals call I heard yesterday. In the twenty years that we have lived here I have only seen 1 cardinal. I keep hoping to see and hear them more often. Hearing one yesterday renewed that hope.

I am thankful for...
my son who knew how to fix my computer. Last week it was infected with a vicious virus. I knew who to call. And now my computer is almost as good as new.

I am wearing...
blue pants, blue sweater, turtleneck with yellow flowers, socks, and of course slippers.

I am remembering...
my dad. For some reason he has been on mind a lot today. I miss him.

I am going...for a haircut this week, to the city with a friend, and grocery shopping tomorrow.

I am currently reading...
"Mystic Lake" by Kristin Hannah and a Nancy Drew Mystery.

I am hoping...
to get a hat, mitts, and booties for the hospital in the mail.

On my mind...
our propane tank. I called today to remind the propane company to come out and give us a fill. Last night we were at 6%. They did not show up today with gas. I hope we make it through the night.

Noticing that...
my feet are really really cold. I need my wool socks tonight.

Pondering these words...
No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 1John 4:12
Perfect love is a huge thing to contemplate. I always thought the only perfect love was God's, but this says that God's love through me is perfect. Amazing. I am filled with wonderment.

From the kitchen...
tonight we had grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Tomorrow chicken and rice. Wednesday mock chow mein.

Around the house... it is quiet. The cats a resting up for a night of frolicking.

One of my favorite things~
discovering a new author. Kristin Hannah is new to me. So far the book I am reading is so so good. Another favorite is finding a new to me quote from Scripture.
