The Simple Woman's Daybook #59

Outside my window...it is SMOKIN' hot for the end of August.

I am thinking...that blogging is not on my to do list, and I don't care. I'm doing it anyway
I am thankful for... this computer which works (had a fatal computer crash last week).
I am wearing... brown shorts and pink polo.
I am remembering... peace.

I am creating... school plans, a rehearsal schedule and plan, a cake design and birthday party plans.

I am going... to rearrange and clean my kitchen tomorrow.

I am reading... The Soldier's Lady by Michael Philips. It's the sequel to the last book I read. Now I'm hooked, and there are four books in the series.
I am hoping... for the truth to be made clear in all things. Still.
On my mind... my parents' health, our finances, Lukas' upcoming b-day party, school prep and the details that are necessary to successfully direct a children's musical.

From the learning rooms...  Bible quizzing, a little reading and PREP for the first day of school next week. Excitement is in the air!

Noticing that... when I'm falling apart, there are people who still want to be a part of my life. That's quite a blessing.
From the kitchen... paprika chicken with spinach egg noodles and yellow squash. Watermelon for dessert.

Around the house... the big kitchen reorganization of 2010. Haha! There will also be lots of cleaning done this week before Lukas' birthday party, laundry needs to be done, I'm making and freezing pasta sauce and have 10 pounds of peaches that will need to be frozen in a couple days when they're just a little riper, a cake to design and make, and the school shelves aren't going to clean themselves. That's the short list. See previous post for the long list which I wrote in a moment of overwhelmed procrastination.

One of my favorite things... evenings at home with my family.
Praying for... joy.

A Lyric or two...

We gotta hold on to what we got
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
We got each other, and that's a lot.
For love, we'll give it a shot.

A verse to share...Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

A few plans for the week... See "around the house".


  1. Is that the paprika chicken and spinach egg noodles from the latest Rachael Ray magazine? I just made that for dinner last night!! Although I substituted spaghetti squash for the egg noodles. It was all very yummy. :)

  2. Yes, it is!!! We used whole wheat no-yolk egg noodles. It was a delicious meal! I think I'll make it again, but I might add a touch of honey to the sauce.
