A Simple Woman's Daybook - February 8, 2010

A Simple Woman's Daybook
February 8, 2010

For Today:

Outside my window...
it was blustery cold today. A little bit of snow fell, just a dusting really. The cats loved to chase the snowflakes. They never seemed content with the one they were chasing and had to quickly turn to find a better one.

I am thinking...
about the coming weekend. I am going to the city to spend time with my brother and SIL. I am also going to spend one day with my best friend. I will also watch the Olympics. YEA!

I am thankful...
today in the mail I received the book Read the Bible in 90 days. I qualified for a scholarship to receive this book free of charge. I AM so very thankful. I am excited to start this new journey.

I am wearing...
black pants, moss green sweater, pinkish turtleneck, socks and slippers.

I am going...
as mentioned to the city, grocery chopping for my husband's food while I am gone, chiropractor and to the book store this week all before Friday.

On my mind...the smell of burnt leaves in my car. Yes, again. I fear that the mice have moved in again. I hope I was imagining it today. I don't have another $500.00 to get the car fixed again.

Pondering these words...
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
I love this sentence. It sums up all that there is to say about God's love for us.

From the kitchen…
Pork roast, mashed potatoes, and green beans for dinner tonight. Tomorrow chicken wings and salad. The rest of the week is up for grabs so far. I am going to make a dessert to take with me to the city. A chocolate something.

Around the house...
I am considering hiring a bulldozer to come and push the house over. It seems easier than trying to clean it all. It looks like a bomb went off. If thieves came here they would not rob us because they would think we had already been robbed.

One of my favorite things...
chocolate chip cookies with ice cold milk. Warms the heart this does.

I am working on...a baby blanket to send with the hat set I finished. I will send them all to the local hospital.

No photos to share this week.

  1. I always find myself getting hungry when you write about what you are cooking! I am so "slack" in the cooking department these days. I hope you enjoy your trip to the city this weekend, it sounds like fun. Blessings! Kathy
