The Simple Woman's Daybook - Monday, March 8, 2010

For today...

Outside my window...
SUNNY!! Did you hear me, sunny! I see blue skies and sunshine and I am beyond excited. It's supposed to get up to 50 today which will feel like a heat wave.

I am thinking...about being outside. I need to look around my yard to start planning for the things that need to be done this Spring.

I am thankful...that I had the opportunity to see my sister compete in her gymnastics meet. She has such natural talent and made it to the finals for vault. Renee showed me some pictures of another performance she was in and there's one that I need to print off of her on the beam. Amazing!

I am praying...for a Christ-like attitude. I feel myself being more negative and critical and that's not an attitude I like to have.

I am reading...2 Samuel. I was trying to read the Bible in 90 days and I have gotten really behind. Now I'm back on track and I'm currently reading about David.

I am also still reading the Beth Moore book but I just haven't made the time to sit and really get through the pages. I hope to get it finished soon.

I am creating...nothing. I have so many ideas and I need to just get to it and get them done. I did make a card for my MIL's birthday over the weekend.

From the kitchen...Last night we had hamburgers on the grill (taking advantage of the sunny days), breakfast tonight and baked ziti tomorrow. We need to go to the store.

Around the house...the kids' rooms need to be cleaned (I swear I say this every week). It is really time to go through their clothes because the pjs Caleb had on last night were a bit small! I also need to clean out the fridge and we're going to clean under the stove.

A few plans for the rest of the week...go outside, try a new flavor (Oreo Cheesecake) at our favorite ice cream place, and the kids are going to Cleveland for the weekend so Rondell and I are going to hang out, relax and probably watch a movie or two.

Share your daybook here.

I am so glad you are finally getting some sun! We are too:) I really need to do some kind of meal plan every week. I usually decided what to make about 5 minutes before time to start cooking!

Kelli said...

Isn't the sunshine just priceless??? We have it, too, and it's supposed to stick around through tomorrow. It was a gorgeous weekend, too! :)

I know what you mean. AND you work outside the home. I don't even know how you do it all!

We had a new ice cream place open up and I had Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. Omgoodness gracious, it tasted just like the cookie. I think the cheesecake one is gonna be good. Have fun!

I'm glad you didn't mention oreo cheesecake earlier in the post. That is all I could think about after you mentioned it. YUM!!!!!!!!

I want some.

Have a great week...I'll be thinking of that ice cream.

Kelli said...

Whoo-hoo for the sunny days in Ohio! That's great. I know sometimes, I find myself feeling better about life in general when the sun is shining. Rob and I have talked about living up north someday, but the more I think about it, it would take the mighty hand of God to move me!

Oreo cheesecake!!!!!!! Sign me up. Now I need some. Where can I get this decadent delight? Please share.

We are getting the sun here as well and boy are we excited. We can't seem to stay inside. Thus I have to catch up on blogs late at night. I am super excited that I even have tulips popping up. I can't wait to break out our grill.
Have a great Monday!

Oreo cheesecake ice cream?! *crying* I'm so jealous! Not really, but yeah, I am. LOL That sounds so good.

I pray you are doing well, Kelli. I'm not for sure you know, but my blog went missing for a few days. I blogged about it. I was such a dummy, oh, my gosh! But, anyway, I'm back and am now playing catch-up on my blog reading today.

Well, I'm off to read more posts. I'll be back on yours I'm sure. Enjoy your weekend with Rondell. God bless!
