Daybook: 01.26.15


Outside my window...32° and sunny

I am thinking... about how easy it is for me to get excited about things. It's a blessing most times, but it can get me going in too many directions at once as well ...

I am thankful... and grateful for a dependable vehicle.

In the kitchen... hot dog roll ups and soup for dinner tonight. I need to make something simple and quick because we have a meeting tonight.

I am wearing... dress jeans, peach top, and mint sweater and necklace that my daughter bought for me. It may be cold, but springy colors cheer me up.

I am creating... ideas for the next A-Z blogging challenge. I want to do something a little different. More on this later ...

I am reading... "The Patmos Deception" by Davis Bunn. I'm enjoying it so far.

I am looking forward to... the annual business meeting being over tonight. Once that is done, for some odd reason, I always feel like my life is my own again ... Crazy, because it is not near as much work as it used to be ...

Around the house... that dratted refrigerator needs cleaning out ... AGAIN. 

I am pondering... salads in a jar. Yes? or No? I made one the night before and it was awesome in my lunch, but I'm not sure about making up 4 or 5 ahead.

A favorite quote for today...

“You don’t marry someone because you can live with them. You marry someone because you can’t live without them.” ~Christy Jordan's Mama from Southern

One of my favorite things... organizational projects. I'm about to tackle my spice cabinet.

A few plans for the rest of the week: organizing file cabinets at work and organizing spice cabinet at home. I also want to get started on 2 Peter S.O.A.P. bible study and writing ahead for my new feature, Testimonial Tuesdays.

want to invite you to a new weekly link-up on Tuesdays starting February 3. I'm calling it Testimonial Tuesdays and I want to feature little praise reports of God at work. I'd love for you to share stories of answered prayer with us. It can be an answer you received, or someone you know who has experienced God working in their lives. I think testimony time in our church services are getting rare.  I want everyone to know that God is interested in every single thing that goes on in our lives, and we need to give Him credit for all He has done - the little things as well as the big miracles. Let me know in the comments if you are interested. I'm planning to open it up at 7 a.m. and letting people link up through midnight that day.

A peek into my day...

That's a great quote. I'll have to share it with wifey. And being thankful is the key to being happy and content.

Testimonial Tuesday sounds so awesome! I'm going to be thinking on which one I should share first! :)
I love Davis Bunn books! Haven't heard of this one though.

I have been seeing lots of posts about meals in a jar, and I am curious to find out more about them!

Have a great week!

Salads in a jar! Yes! In the summer when we have our own greens, I make up about 5 or 6 and keep in the fridge. They make a handy thing to pick up and stick in hubby's lunch...and a great way to ensure that I actually stop to eat. #5 or #6 day are just as fresh as #1 day! The trick is to make sure to keep the dressing and the greens separated.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for A/Z :) I like the concept of salads in a jar, definitely healthier eating I think!

I have kind of skimmed over the salads in a jar thing. They sound wonderful, but I hate soggy salads. How many days would you be able to have crisp green doing this? Let us know how it works for you if you do it for longer.

That book is on my TBR list. You'll have to let me know when you are all done if you liked it to the end.
