The Simple Woman's Daybook


FOR TODAY... from Laura's Daybook


Outside my window...I am watching 6 blue jays and one red headed woodpecker, eat the cracked corn I threw down for the chickens. They are BEAUTIFUL!

I am thinking... of how much time son has wasted this morning arguing over doing his school work

I am thankful for...
for My Skippy Man ~ He is truly amazing!

From the Learning Rooms...
we are trying out a new school schedule and so far, it is not going very well. However, I will not be discouraged.....I will press on!

I am wearing... my pajamas :> )

I am reading...
my Bible, cover to cover

I am hoping...PRAYING... for the salvation of my children

On my mind… how I'm going to make it through this school day

From the kitchen..
I will be making out a menu for the week. Tonight, I think we're going to have these for dinner!

I am creating...hand-embroidered pillows to sell

I am hearing...
my precious pug, Pheobe, snoring while sleeping next to the wood stove

Noticing that…
the family room is a MESS

Around the house...
are remnants of our wonderful Christmas

One of my favorite things... spending time out on the porch in the mornings with a hot cup of coffee, listening to the birds serenade me while talking with my Father!

A Scripture thought...

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD. "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!" Jeremiah 29:11

A few plans for the rest of the week...
making myself a "TO DO" list and a cleaning schedule, and getting started on doing some sewing and crafting as well

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...


Oh, how I wish I was there!

This is neat Laura. Fun to look in your brain for a few minutes. Hope school improves this week... we've all had those days, my friend!

Praying for a better tomorrow with kiddo and the lessons.

Hugs,
