The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window…
it's beautiful & breezy & not too hot, I am so grateful we aren't having the heatwave that I keep hearing the rest of the country grumble about

I am thinking…
about what else I can do to trim down our budget to ensure that I can stay home & raise my son & not have to go back to work & put him in daycare & essentially let someone else raise him

I am thankful for…
my Lord & Savior, he continues to take care of us & provide for us beyond belief at times

From the learning rooms… P
Still doing daily Bible study with little J & "your baby can read" & attempting to teach him Spanish as well, still so very hopeful (& praying daily) that I can homeschool him when the time comes

From the kitchen…
I'm working on revamping my eating (making it even healthier than it already is) & hoping to banish the last little bit of this dreaded baby weight

I am wearing…
a navy blue top with crocheted cut outs & a white cami underneath with denim shorts

I am creating…
this blog at the moment.......and still working on lil J's baby book & printing out all my blogs that pertain to him & putting them into a binder

I am going…
to a car show this weekend, yay! I LOVE when we can get out of the house on the weekend after I've been cooped up in the house all week, even if it's only for a couple of hours I still love it

I am reading…
educating the whole hearted child & eat cheat & melt the fat away

I am hoping…
to be able to do a good job at raising lil J in the ways of the Lord, I think about this often & pray about it daily

I am hearing…
the breeze outside & an airplane in the distance, very pleasant & relaxing--I love where I live & that I almost always have this beautiful breeze

Around the house…
My sister in law watched lil J recently while I went to have an ultrasound done & she had limited lil J to only a few toys at a time so there wasn't such a mess, so now I've been stricter on lil J about this & am seeing pretty good results. I do have to remind frequently, but he doesn't put up too much of a fight & the house is staying much neater during playtime, which I love

Some of my favorite things…
books, my guitar, being outdoors--I really want to spend more time outdoors with lil J, but everytime I try these days it just seems like there's so much danger lurking everywhere for him

A few plans for the rest of the week:
grocery shopping, cleaning house, maybe another trip to the pool with lil J, a car show this weekend

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…
I'm afraid I don't know how to insert a photo.....

I am praying…
to be able to afford to remain a stay at home mom, for all of our legal battles, for hubby to remain happy with his new job, for my stepkids to return to church, & for my health, for many other friends & family & their needs

It's a great book!! I really need to get it finished. This week I actually abandoned all other reading (well except for my Bible, I kept my daily Bible reading going) so I could finish off Suzanne Somer's book & I did finish it in 2 days so I can start her diet today!
