The Simple Woman's Daybook

~~For Today~~

Outside my window...
Raining, dark & dreary. A little cold, too.

I am thinking...
How I need to organize my drawers, closet, and under my bed.

I am thankful for...
My family, my warm home, my goat who's due very soon, and a multitude of other things.

From the kitchen...
Nothing much right now, I'll probably start dinner in a little while.

I am wearing...
An embroidered denim skirt, a pink shirt, my hair in a braid.

I am creating...
A retro apron for mom.

I am going...
To edit lots of pictures this week!

I am reading...
Missionary Patriarch- The True Story of John G. Paton.
The Real Lincoln
The Family

I am hoping...
That I can find some furniture to complete my room. We'll be repainting & decorating it in the next few weeks. I can't wait!

I am hearing...
A kitten mewing, distant conversation.

Around the house...
Pretty tidy, could use a bit of straightening in some rooms.

One of my favorite things...
Dear friends and family!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Deep cleaning the twin's room, decorating & painting it.
Lots of reading, schoolwork, making the house extra cozy.
Daddy has the week off work! Hurrah!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Coffee, anyone?

Care to join the daybook?

    P.S. Have you ever seen the movies, Facing the Giants or Fireproof? Just curious, because the church who made those movies are located in Georgia. :D
