the simple woman's daybook

FOR TODAY February 3, 2014

Outside my window... bare branches standing still against a muted blue sky with below zero temperatures hovering.
I am thinking... that I need to put the house back in order.  There are miscellaneous items that don't belong in almost every room.
I am thankful... oh so thankful for God's amazing(!) grace.
In the kitchen... chicken chili for dinner, a grocery list and a menu plan for the week.
I am wearing... my favorite red yoga pants, tank top and navy blue fleece pullover from LLBean.
I am creating... more organized spaces, slowly and surely.  My prize from Better Homes and Gardens just might come someday. [sigh]
I am going... to enjoy the fact that we are half-way through our school year.  Only 18 more weeks to go.  I think I can, I think I can.
I am wondering... how to organize the spice cabinet?  Should I use a tiered rack, put racks on the door or use a turntable?
I am reading... The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I am hoping... the month of February will be short and the spring/summer season will be long & warm!
I am looking forward to... the day!  Every day is new and holds a certain amount of mystery.
I am learning... to live the acronym JOYJesus first, Others next, Yourself last.
Around the house... a whirring washing machine, chiming clock and chirping lovebirds.
I am pondering... writing a book someday.
A favorite quote for today... "The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool." ~ William Shakespeare
One of my favorite things... my cow creamer, it makes me smile.

A few plans for the rest of the week: haircuts for a few kids, Awana, Royal Rangers and a Hamlet play.
A peek into my day...
Patrick and I snowshoeing.
