simple woman's daybook

For Today... January 18, 2016
Outside my window... sky is clear, the sun is bright and the thermometer reads -3 degrees!
I am thinking... of what a strange winter it has been.  So strange in fact that there are robins still living in the area.  They should be long gone.
I am thankful... for God's peace which transcends all understanding.
I am wearing... layers for warmth!
I am creating... an organized, less cluttered home
I am going... to enjoy a blueberry tea while I finish this post.
I am wondering... what else I have to get rid of in this house.  I've had several successful listings on and it is good motivation to purge more.
I am reading... Still Alice by Lisa Genova and Tales from the Milestone by Ben Wajikra
I am hoping... to find a good read about the 1950's and 1960's.  Fiction or non-fiction.
I am learning... to wait patiently.  I have been a bit restless lately and can't seem to work it out. 
In my garden... the seeds and soil are covered by a blanket of snow.
In my kitchen... I am going to try to make Baked Potato Soup.  I just love ordering it when I eat out, so I thought, why not try to make a version at home.
In the homeschool room... we are joyfully entering unit 3 of our 4 unit curriculum.  The kids and I are surprised at how fast the first two units went by.  Here's hoping the last two move as quickly.
A favorite quote for today... Since today is Martin Luther King Jr. day, I must use one of my favorites by him; "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
A peek into one of my days dreams... dreaming of the ocean today.  Preferably in a warm location.
One of my favorite things... going out to lunch with my girlfriends!
