First Daybook of 2013


Outside my window
... 25° and it's o'dark thirty ....

I am thinking...on 1st Peter - there is a lot of good stuff there!

I am thankful... that I'm beginning to feel much more like myself.  Each day, I feel better, and I think this week I may be able to get back to my routines.  (I started to say, "get back to normal," but then, I've never been normal!)

In the kitchen... pork chops and baked potatoes tonight.

I am wearing... beige pants, black, rust, gold and beige blouse, gold suede jacket.

I am creating... several blog posts (making up for lost time!)

I am try to stay in at night this week while I'm recovering from the flu.  I do not want a setback!

I am learning ... to not sweat the small stuff.  There is always tomorrow to get it done, and if tomorrow doesn't come ... it doesn't matter anyway!

Around the house... just one more Christmas decor item to put up.

I am pondering... my word for 2013.  I have decided on "fearless," and will be posting this year a lot of scripture regarding the subject of fear.

A favorite quote for today..."Maybe instead of resolutions, we need revolution - a revolution of a whole new way of life."  my pastor, Travis Schroeder.

One of my favorite things... a house in order.

A few plans for the rest of the week: a lot of organizing for the new year at work, and some S.O.A.P. work at home.  (Stay tuned to find out what S.O.A.P. means.)

A peek into my day...

Daniel and Janae, Christmas Day, 2012
The daybook is a concept created by Peggy Hostetler.  You can link up at her blog, The Simple Woman's Daybook.


  1. Love the one that said if it doesn't get done tomorrow it doesn't matter anyway! :) I am learning that too. And love the quote from your Pastor, it's so true!! Have a great week!

  2. Love your word for the year. Mine is grace. Have a wonderful week.

  3. Great One Word for 2013! Sounds like this will be a great series of posts! I love the SOAP method of study and I believe that may be what you are referring to. By Ministry Asst.... (saw that in your profile) does that mean you work at a church? I do... so I was wondering if I have a fellow sister here. Visiting from SWD. Have a Happy 2013! Tänia of Simply God's Girl
