The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today: Tuesday, February 20, 2009:

Outside my window: It's sunny and cold. I don't mind the cold because the sun is shining and I can see the blue sky!

I am thinking: About life, not to be too dramatic. I am just trying to prioritize some things and get them in order, my relationship with God, my family, my home, me. I feel the need to make some changes, for the better and why not start with today.
I am thankful for: A wonderful weekend with my husband. The kids were out of town and he had most of the weekend off. We were able to talk uninterrupted, eat without sharing and sleep in. I love that man and I was so great to be able to reconnect with him.

From the kitchen: Not much happening there this weekend. I need to go to the store, so right now the fridge is empty...we don't even have bread, gasp!

I am reading: Tuesday, my BSF notes day. I love the notes from BSF. Especially now since we are reading about the life of Moses and it's complicated. The notes always make the topic much more clear and gives clear reference to Christ. It's amazing.

I am creating: A notebook filled with my Kraft magazine recipes. I saw this on another blog and it looked like such a great idea, so I will be tackling that this week. I'll post about it once it's done.
Around the house: MESSY!!! Since I did nothing but enjoy my hubby, the house was neglected. I'll make it up to her.

One of my favorite things: Getting this award:

Aw girl! Thanks for the award! :) I'm so excited!

also- I can't wait to see these Kraft recipes organized! I have so many recipes that I have pulled out of various magazines (including the Kraft mag) and I would love to organize them better than I am. I currently have them in hanging file folders, in a small file folder case. While this is organized, it also takes up a lot of room!

Have a great day!!!

Kim... and Her Coffee said...

Hi, this is my first visit to your lovely blog. I love that you spent the whole weekend reconnecting with your husband. I think we all need that once in a while.

Nice to meet you, drop by and say hi if you get a minute.
