The Simple Woman's Day Book

Outside my window... It's cloudy and 37 degrees. We're supposed to get rain later this afternoon and maybe some snow mixed in.

I am thinking... about how blessed I am with a husband who loves me, amazing kids, a healthy family and God Who watches over us all the time.

I am thankful for... my husband's job that he loves.

From the learning rooms...
We decided to wait until Gabriel and Hannah return to college before getting back into our homeschool routine.

From the kitchen... Something simple for tonight since Gabriel and Hannah are both working. Tomorrow we are going to the youth pastor's home for dinner. Wednesday or Thursday I'm planning on making chicken and dumplings. Holly is wanting to make some cookies - peanut butter or snicker doodles.

I am wearing... Blue jeans, a favorite black shirt with embroidered flowers and my State Police sweat shirt.

I am creating... a shopping list - things Gabriel and Hannah need for their second semester at Pensacola Christian College.

I am going...
nowhere today. I love days when I can stay at home.

I am reading...
nothing besides the bible. My goal for the year is to read at least five non-fiction books. Haven't gotten started yet. This category is not seeing much change!

I am praying... for God's provision.

I am hoping...
to make a to-do list and check many things off!

I am hearing...
The click of Hannah's laptop as she takes pictures of herself, Holly and their friend Bethany who spent the night. And lots of laughter.

Around the house...
Laundry is piled up. I need to get it finished so the kids can begin packing.

One of my favorite things...
laughter. We have a happy home.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Spending time with Gabriel and Hannah before they leave early Friday morning. Checking the weather along their route. Hopefully winter will be relatively mild for just a few more days.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Holly and homeschool band classmate Jamie at their Christmas concert last Thursday. (December's concert was postponed due to snow.)


  1. Laughter, especially from our children, really is one of the best things ever, isn't it? Enjoy those happy sounds!

  2. Laughter is one of my favorite things, too...I love to hear my kids laughing and having a good time together. Enjoyed your daybook!!

  3. Oh, a happy home how blessed we are! I am visiting today from Simple Woman's Daybook. I am a homeschooling mom too :)
