The Simple Woman's Daybook

The Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY, Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Outside my window…
it's sunny & hot....at 9am....not good, I turned on the a/c for the day; I hate running it, but yesterday I was miserable in the heat & decided to give in today; I hate running it because it's expensive to run, but even moreso because I love fresh air--I LOVE opening up the doors & windows & letting the fresh air in & hearing & feeling the breeze. I feel so disconnected when the house is closed up as it has to be when the a/c is on. I also love that where I live there is almost always a breeze blowing.

I am thinking…
about what I can do to cut down our budget even more than we already have

I am thankful for…
my wonderful family & my most awesome God that takes care of us always

From the learning rooms…
daily Bible studies

From the kitchen…
gotta make a pot of black beans today, looking for some new food ideas for little J, planning to make him a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch today

I am wearing…
a black tank top & denim shorts

I am creating…
a binder full of all the blogs I've written pertaining to little J, it's a lot of fun going back & looking over them now, I am so grateful I wrote them all

I am going…
to spend my day doing laundry

I am reading…
my Bible, every day, & "knockout" by Suzanne Somers

I am hoping…
to think of something free & fun to do this weekend; the harvest crusade is on this weekend, but just like last year I don't think little J will enjoy it

I am hearing…
little J jumping in his jumperoo while watching Veggie Tales

Around the house…
my stepson is with us this week, so that means more work in the kitchen & additional food costs this week.

Some of my favorite things…
prayer, reading, guitar, playing with little J

A few plans for the rest of the week:
gotta clean & go grocery shopping & hopefully take a trip to the pool with lil J


I am praying…
for my hubby to give all his stress to God, for wisdom in raising lil J in the way of the Lord, for my stepkids salvation, for victory in our legal battles, my health, & health & finances of friends & family
