Daybook - January 29, 2012

FOR TODAY, the last Monday in January

 

Outside my window... brilliant sunshine and 54 degrees ... we have not had much of a winter this year!

I am thinking...that January is almost over and I'm still focusing on my "word of the year" - joy!

I am thankful...that my employer gives me a day off for my birthday.  I chose today, so it's another "lazy Monday" for me.  I do love me some 3-day weekends!

In the kitchen...homemade chicken pot pie and salad tonight.

I am wearing...my favorite faded jeans, a comfy paisley top, and thick black socks.  No makeup today!

I am creating...blog posts. I'm linking up with a new group of bloggers this week.

I am going...to our church annual business meeting tonight.

I am wondering...what God has in store for our church this year.

I am reading... "Rebel With A Cause" by Franklin Graham ... still.  I haven't had much reading time lately.

I am hoping...our youngest daughter does well at her new job that she starts today.

I am looking forward to...my next day off!

I am learning joy in the midst of unanswered prayer.

Around the house... peace and quiet ...

I am pondering... my next bible lesson.

A favorite quote for today..."Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." Thomas A. Edison

One of my favorite things...sweet tea with lemon.

A few plans for the rest of the week: blogging and more blogging, finishing up re-doing files at work and catching up on my bible reading program.

A peek into my day...




My Day Planner keeps me straight!

Here's hoping that "JoY" will be a big part of your vocabulary for the whole year :)

I love homemade chicken pot pie (other people's since I'm not Betty Crocker). It's kind of cool today for Central Florida, so it makes me want the warm comfort meals I had during the winters in Va.

Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving such a nice comment :)

We are having the same dinner tonight :) I was thinking of putting hot tea for my favorite, but I like it with just milk. Have a great week.
