The Simple Woman's Daybook~ 1/2/13


FOR TODAY, Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Outside my window...It's another bright blue-skyed sunny Florida day. BEAUTIFUL weather today!

I am thinking...that I need to get in the shower bc Amanda is going to have her baby any hour now!

I am thankful...for a husband who seeks God in his decisions rather than only trying to figure them out in the human mindset. God's ways are not man's ways but you cannot know His will for your life if you do not seek Him.

In the kitchen...ehhh...we have been eating out almost constantly through the holidays. And since we don't eat fast food anymore...it adds up quickly! It's time to compile my list of meals for the rest of this week and get to cooking again :)

I am wearing...pj's, of course!

I am creating...a scarf and some quilts....I am working on the quilt blocks, for a class I am teaching, making a Valentine's Day wall hanging. I am also finishing up a few odds and ends from Christmas. I'm knitting the bestie's scarf and working on a charity quilt as well.

I am going...to go see my soon to arrive niece in a bit! Church tonight and the movies Friday night. And that should be it for today....Well...maybe a quick run to the quilt shop. I think they have one Accuquilt GO! die left for half off :)

I am wondering...how to work teaching 2 sewing classes into this month. I don;t mind doing it as long as those who commit do come.

I am reading...many books. "For Such a Time as This", "A Dream to Call Her Own" and two others that I cannot think of the names of at the moment. And I just started "The Hobbit" with Kyle too.

I am hoping...that Macy Jeanne makes her entrance into this world today...and soon! =)

I am looking forward to...meeting Macy!

I am learning...how to make homemade deodorant! SO simple and from all I've read and everyone I've talked to about it, it is AMAZING, aluminum-free stuff. NO ODOR and pennies to make! Plus I have heard several long term benefits that are unexpected.

Around the house...things are being put back in order. The Christmas tree came down yesterday and the decorations got put away. It's kind of sad that Christmas is over....but at the same time it is nice to have the house back to "normal".

I am pondering...whether or not I should start the homeschool Nature Club...and if I do, what I will teach each week and what projects we will do....hmmmmmmmmm.

A favorite quote for today..."Dull women have immaculate sewing rooms." (LOL)

One of my favorite things...My Christmas present from Ronnie...Accuquilt GO!

A few plans for the rest of the week: meeting my niece, Macy, church, movies, SEWING SEWING SEWING

A peek into my day...My living room....not that the Christmas tree is out! (Although the Christmas bins are still sitting there, lol)

Would you like to linger on the simple things...then join me and many others in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those who are focusing on simplicity...beauty of the everyday moments.
