The Simple Woman's Daybook - April 6, 2009


FOR TODAY, APRIL 6th EDITION
Outside my window...
another rainy dreary day.
I am thinking...
of how blessed I am that my children are healthy!
I am thankful for...
the Holy Spirit and how He convicts me when I have a wrong attitude or say something I shouldn't. (I feel a post brewing inside about this particular subject! More on this, later.)
From the kitchen...
Spaghetti and garlic bread tonight, and hot-dog roll-ups tomorrow.
I am wearing...
since it's chilly, I'm back to wearing one of my suede jackets and boots with my brown pants and a dark green top. (I've just realized how often I wear my brown pants on Mondays! I'm going to have to change that up.)
I am creating...
something new for my kitchen. I saw the idea over at The Nester's blog and I think I can adapt it for my home. I may need to visit Hobby Lobby for a certain piece of scrapbook paper, though. When finished, I'll post a picture.
I am going...
to a special service at my daughter's church this Wednesday.
I am reading...
Mindy Starns Clark's "Elementary, My Dear Watkins," third in the Smart Chick Mystery series.
I am hoping...
that God moves in a mighty way in my Sunday School class, and anoints me, as the teacher, with real inspiration, wisdom and knowledge.
I am hearing...
exciting things from my friends as they see answers to prayer come to pass.
Around the house...
I have a bookshelf and a desk that needs some serious organizational help!
One of my favorite things...
going on a drive and stopping to take pictures of scenery. My hubby and I tried that this weekend, but was disappointed that the trees are not budding out very much. I think this year's ice storm really damaged the trees.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
shopping for hubby a new church outfit, Easter goodies and dying of eggs (I know the girls are grown but we keep some traditions. For instance, there must be jellybeans!)
Here is picture thought I am sharing...

The bank in the town I work in always has the most beautiful landscaping. Here is a bed of tulips outside their building. Tulips always make me think of spring!

This week I will be shopping for shoes for Kristin.(needs something to go with an Easter dress!) Oh and I hear you on traditions. I have to have certain treats here for the older kids. ;)

Thanks for stopping by! The tulips are beautiful. We don't see them so much in Florida (at least not in the areas that I frequent!)

I can't wait to see the kitchen creation. I was just thinking I need to play with doing something for my kitchen too.

I love the tulip picture! I have a few in my front yard but nothing like that! Just beautiful.

Thank you so much for your comment. It is good to know I am not alone in the thinking about hospitality. :O)

I am looking forward to reading what it is that has been laid on your heart to blog about. Those can be some of the best posts!

Much love and God's Blessings to you and your family!
