The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY, Tuesday January 11, 2011.

Outside my window… it's chilly & overcast, it looks like it's going to rain, but there's no rain in the weather forecast

I am thinking… about MOPS--I am turning in my application tomorrow & am told it starts on February 9th.  I am soooo excited!

I am thankful for… my cousin bringing up MOPS & encouraging me to contact another group (since the first group had turned me down)

From the learning rooms… daily Bible study with Lil J, we are back in I Corinthians now (following my church sermons), & still doing Proverbs each day as well

From the kitchen…still LOVING my crock pot & using it almost every day.  :)  For dinner tonight is leftovers from last night, but in the crock pot right now is a cuban flank steak.  My stepdaughter & her boyfriend LOVE Cuban food, so it's mostly for them (hubby & I don't eat beef--well I will eat it on very rare occasions, but hubby never does) & my stepson likes beef, so I'm hoping he'll like it too.  This dish has to be cooked in two stages & takes a very long time to finish, so I'm starting it today & will probably finish it Thursday or Friday.

I am wearing… a black knot top, jeans, & socks

I am creating… I pulled out the crayons yesterday, but he really wasn't very interested, BUT he's not feeling well right now, so maybe that's why

I am going… to turn in my MOPS application tomorrow

I am reading… still haven't finished the 5 love language of your children book, but am also reading some homeschooling magazines

I am hearing… the breeze blowing outside, Lil J is down for his nap

Around the house… today is my laundry marathon, busy, busy, busy

A few of my favorite things…watching a movie with my hubby, reading, cooking

A few plans for the rest of the week: cleaning my house, gotta get some more eggs, gotta turn in my MOPS application

I am praying… for Gideon's saturation week, my church, my govt, my family & lots of friends

Mmm Cuban food. I wanna come! We get a lot of use out of our crock pot too. I was just checking out your crockpot recipes. The zesty mexican chicken I've added all the ingredients to our grocery list for Thursday. It's gonna be delish. I think instead of rice though I'm going to shred it and put it in tacos. Mmm.

Also I chose 1 Corinthians 12: 31-13: 8 for one of the readings at our upcoming wedding :)

What is MOPS?

ooo, that would be great in tacos!

that's awesome for your wedding :)

MOPS is Mothers Of PreschoolerS
I've never been so I don't know exactly, but moms of babies (ages less than Kindergarten basically) get together & do fun projects, etc on a weekly basis. The main website is http://www.mops.org if you want to check it out.

So interesting to hear of your "heritage" - and my grandmother came out of Prussia too!!! :)
Anyway, hope you love MOPS ... I did it for years when my first 2 children were little. I'm too old & busy to do it now - but I sure loved it way back when. GET THAT APPLICATION IN!! ;)

I am worried that I might be too old & busy for it, LOL, we shall see! We are probably very close in age!
