Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY... November 9, 2009

Outside my window... it was a beautiful fall day filled sunshine and a delightful temperature of 50 degrees.

I am thinking... this warmer weather and sunshine makes it hard to believe it’s November.  November means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. . . .and then Christmas. . . Yikes!!
I am thankful travels for several family members this week. 
I am wearing... black pants and a brown top with brown vest.  (I have a pretty boring wardrobe. . . I finish this sentence the same every week!)
I am remembering... it was 12 years ago this week I was pregnant and due anytime with my first child.  We were sooo excited!
I am going... to bed on time tonight.  Really!  I promise.

I am reading...  Prayers From A Mother’s Heart by Ruth Bell Graham 
I am hoping... our eldest son has a happy birthday day on Thursday.
On my mind... Little Stellan's miraculous, successful heart surgery this afternoon.  The Lord has done an amazing work in this little boys’ life.

From the learning rooms... Robert McCloskey books this week.  Make Way for Ducklings is an all time favorite of mine.

Noticing that...  with time change we are getting the kids ready for bed earlier and spending more time reading in the evening.

Pondering these words... “Lord, please help me develop a gentle, pleasant tone of voice.  Someone once said, ‘Most of the tensions of everyday life are caused by tone of voice.’  I know it’s true with me.  So please help me.”  Ruth Bell Graham

From the kitchen... I’m lacking in the meal planning department this week.  Not even a pot of soup in the making.  Although one son recently lamented, “all we have is soup nowadays”.  I guess he’ll be glad. :)

Around the house... my carpets were cleaned today and they look sooo much better.

One of my favorite things~ Listening to my kids giggle and laugh as they did this weekend watching herbieThe Love Bug.

From my picture journal...

  1. I can't even begin to tell you how much I needed to read the Pondering These Words today! Thank you!

  2. Your little girl is beautiful. I love clean carpets. Mine are due to be cleaned soon. I want to read that book. Ruth Graham was a wonderful example for mothers. I hope you have a great week. Doylene
