The Simple Woman's Daybook - January 26, 2009





FOR TODAY MONDAY, JANUARY 26, 2009 ...



Outside my window...



frozen landscape.



I am thinking...



of all the things that need to be done before tonight's winter storm hits.



I am thankful for...



weather forecasters who give us a heads-up when storms approach. (Even if they are wrong part of the time!)



From the kitchen...



meatloaf, au gratin potatoes, peas, and brownies.



I am wearing...



brown pants, boots and jacket, with a dark greep top.



I am creating...



a book review.



I am going...



home after tonight's meeting, and stay there!



I am reading...



"Rex" by Cathleen Lewis (watch my blog this week for my book review on this touching story) and starting book 3 of the Mitford series: "These High Green Hills."



I am hoping...



that the electricity does not go out if the weather forecast lives up to its promise.



I am hearing...



the TV.


Around the house...



laundry needs to be done -- as usual!



One of my favorite things...



staying home!



A few plans for the rest of the week:



hopefully an appointment for me to get my hair done, I have Friday off and hope to finish up all the work at both churches, so that Saturday I can stay home and do what I want!



Power Scripture for the week ...




"Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically."
Romans 9:11 NLT



Here is picture thought I am sharing..



It's only 11 months until Christmas!

Oh, you are reviewing Rex? I did that one a couple weeks ago. It was a very interesting story, wasn't it? I totally enjoyed it, plus it had given me an new boldness with moms of challenged children. I feel I understand their world a tiny bit better because of the book.

Hello Jerri!
So glad you popped in for a visit. I read your profile and think there is absolutely nothing Pollyannish about it! I love to look at the positive side of life ... sounds like you do too.

I'll be interested in checking out "Rex" myself being a mom of a challenged child myself. I'm looking forward to reading your review.

We're expecting an ice storm here in West Tennessee as well. Hope you stay safe & warm!

Blessings,
Lea
