The Simple Woman's Daybook - April 27, 2009



FOR TODAY, APRIL 27th EDITION ...

Outside my window...

sunshine, for now. The rest of the week is supposed to be rainy ...

I am thinking...

of all I want to accomplish this week.

I am thankful for...

for the fact that Jesus paid the price for my salvation. I don't have to keep a bunch of rules to earn my salvation. (I've been studying Galatians.)

From the kitchen...

Meatloaf, au gratin potatoes, peas, and for dessert, brownies. I have to try my new oven out!

I am wearing...

black pants, black & white geometric top, and silver and black necklace that my daughter bought me.

I am creating...

an organized home, decluttering one piece at a time ...

I am going...

to follow where He leads me ...

I am reading...

I get to pick out a new book today at the church library.

I am hoping...

to encourage someone this week!

I am hearing...

the hum of the ceiling fans.

Around the house...

a couple of hot spots need to be cleaned out: the magazine rack, my launch pad, and my desk. (Ok, that's three hot spots ... and all of them contain paper clutter!)

One of my favorite things...

going for a drive on a pretty day.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

Attacking those hot spots, and getting together some stuff for the church yard sale.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...



We drove to the park Saturday and sat on a bench overlooking this lake. The breeze was blowing and it felt so peaceful ...

Wendy said...

What a beautiful picture!

And I liked your "I am going" for today...I always feel like I need to think of something special for that one, but your answer is the truest one and really sums it up for every day, doesn't it?

Have a great day!

Please send some of your rain this way! I, too am trying to declutter my house!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

You must be following the FLY Lady! Me too. I fell off the wagon for a couple of weeks when we all got sick, but I'm getting back on!

I agree with Wendy, you answered "I am going" perfectly. Mine is always the same thing -- library on Monday night.

Good luck with the decluttering. Rain usually helps me get more done inside the house.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

I need to tackle those hot spots, too! Lovely photo. :)

Kelley said...

You just encouraged me to encourage someone too. Check that off the list! lol.

I used to love taking drives when I drove my Tiburon. The minivan isn't quite as liberating. :-)

Beautiful picture! I love what you're "hoping" . . . to encourage someone. Such a great thought. I hope you find the opportunity:)

I enjoyed your daybook. Loved your comment about creating an organized environment by decluttering a piece at a time. (I'm thinking I should share that goal with you one of these days.) :)
Have a wonderful week. (Enjoy that new oven.) :)
In His love,
Tina
