The Simple Woman's Daybook


For today...

Outside my window...sunshine!  I can't tell you how much sunshine brings me JOY :)

I am thinking...still about friendships.  I'll have to elaborate about that one day.

I am thankful...for today's sunshine.

In the kitchen...busted!  I have no meals planned for this week.  Our weekend got away from us and we didn't even go to the store.  I think Rondell and I will do some fast planning tonight.

I am creating...cards for a few people who have ordered them from me.

I am going...to BSF tonight.  It was cancelled last week due to weather.  This year will be my last year for a while, as the upcoming studies are ones that I have done before.  It will be strange not going there on Monday nights next year.

I am reading...Safe Haven!  This book is really good...you should read it.  I always have to read the book before seeing the movie...anyone else like that?

I am hoping...that Spring arrives sooner than later.

I am looking forward to...reading my book tonight after BSF...always a sign of a good book.

I am learning...that my security is in Him and Him alone.  It's a daily struggle.

Around the house...there's a new basketball hoop in our driveway.  Hopefully there will be time to break it in a little this week.

A favorite quote for today...'I have to make the choice every day to invite God's Spirit to interrupt my fleshly tendencies so that I can have gentle answers that turn away wrath.'  This is from an article written by Lysa TerKeurst that my friend Angie sent to me.  Definitely pondering these words today.

One of my favorite things...Twizzlers.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Finish up Valentine's Day prep, continue to purge my home, finish my book, volunteer in Jamison's class, and parent/teacher conferences.

Happy Monday :)

We've had some great bright sunny days and it has been great!!
No meals planned for us this week either. I've been flying by the seat of my pants every single night. Last night, tacos served alongside raviolis and chili. (because I didn't have enough of ONE thing to make it a meal!!!)
Hope your parent teacher conferences go well. :))

Sunshine is God's natural vitamin, the perfect supplementation to His Word! With both, you'll tackle all those goals :) Or least feel inspired to, ha!

Ps... twizzlers sound ridiculously good right now.

I always love reading your daybook Kelli! I have been terrible about cooking lately. For a few weeks I will do good with crock pot meals and planning stuff, but then I get lazy we eat breakfast or sandwiches for dinner! I like Twizzlers too...but Jason hates them:) He says it's like eating plastic!
