A Simple Woman’s Daybook: January 25, 2010
Outside my window… it is unseasonably warm, which is lovely, but the wind sounds like it is about “to blow the house down!” (Not by the hair of my chiny, chin, chin…..which would be cute if there were not actually hairs on my chiny, chin, chin!!)
I am thinking….about my incomplete Bible study homework that I need to finish before tomorrow. The daily work has been great and the questions have really caused me to think. I just need to make it part of the routine…so, I am behind a couple days which stresses me. Homework is just stressful – at any age! And, then, in Sunday school, Pastor is challenging us to memorize the weekly scripture that goes with our lesson. Homework and memorization – ahh!
I am thankful for….Nellie (finally!) getting her driver’s license back. She passed on her third, and final, try. She was determined – and studied and re-studied the book and persevered. And she did it. That said – I am also quite nervous about her driving. It really is a difficult situation.
I am wearing….no coat today!! YIPPEE! Perfect sweater weather (at least for a day or two)..oh – and an umbrella!!
I am remembering…(if only I could say, this week’s memory verse – but I’ll get there)….way back to the elementary days and carpooling. I don’t know why……this heavy rain and the school buses going by remind me of so many similar mornings when I would take my three children and two others to school. The little boy I would take along had an absolute phobia of earth worms (go figure) and, of course, the sidewalk would have more than a few of these little creatures wiggling around after the rain – he was beside himself. Sadly, I really did not have the patience for it (for 20th time) each morning as I tried to load the van and get to school on time. Looking back, though, it was pretty funny. He is a VMI cadet now – some day, I’ll have to remind him how far his courage has come!!
I am going…to breakfast with my friend this morning. Panera on a Monday morning should start the week off right!
I am reading…The Power of Praying for Your Adult Children – excellent, so far.
I am hoping….to hear from Jordan soon. He lost his cell phone and I haven’t been able to contact him.
On my mind….is my sweet friend, Susan. She is moving this week and has been so upset. I pray I can be a blessing to her this week and that she will allow Christ to encourage her. She really does not want to leave (I don’t want her to leave either!) but God surely has good things in store for them in Pennsylvania.
From the kitchen…I hope to make some interesting meals for “one”….with my diet, I still need to feed Hubbie but not have much leftover – he does NOT do leftovers!
Around the house…..the refrigerator needs a repair (the ice maker/water dispenser exactly) and I surely hope the warranty will cover it. From my experience – warranties never cover anything.
Plans for the week…helping Susan dry those tears, working on memorizing, some chores around the house (boring), more looking at curtains (I have no idea here), more working on memorizing and, hopefully, a trip to the mall.
One of my favorite things….an organized junk drawer!!
