The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY: Monday, February 16, 2009

Outside my window... I see a squirrel scampering about on a landscape timber. The sun is peeping through the clouds every now and then.

I am thinking...about my schedule for today.

I am thankful for...having both children home today. I'm also thankful for a good nights rest. I was getting weary.

From the learning as usual today. I'm never sure as to what to write here. I am down to one student, so there's not much to share. In the mornings, Cale works in his room on the subjects he does alone while I do my chores. Then, he and I usually work on the other subjects in the living room after he takes a small break and does his a.m. chores.

From the kitchen...I plan to include turnips in the menu for tonight's supper. Mrs. Bernice gave me several from her garden. There is some coconut cake in the fridge left over from last night. I'm doing my best to ignore it!

I am warm pink robe. (it matches my PINK house shoes!) :)

I am creating...really nothing at this time, other than a more organized house and a more "fit" me. Yes, I'm starting a diet and exercise program today! (Walk Away The Pounds, Leslie Sansone mixed with Weight Watchers)

I am Piggly Wiggly to buy groceries this afternoon.

I am Bible and Walk Away The Pounds by Leslie Sansone. I am hoping to begin the Mail Order Bride series by Al & Joanna Lacy sometime this week.

I am hoping...our friend Claire does well after having her wisdom teeth cut out this morning. I am hoping and praying for my Uncle Joyce Lee who begins Chemo and Radiation treatments today. I'm also hoping that my family and friends will say a prayer for me. (read I am creating)

I am children's footsteps as they prepare for the day.

Around the house...laundry.... need I say more! I'm not complaining; that just means we have clothes to wear, towels & bath cloths, sheets, etc.

One of my favorite things...being surrounded by family, friends, and church family!

A few plans for the rest of the week: mostly just school during the day, catch up on some ironing, keep organizing, Wed. night Bible study at church, grocery shopping,...

Here is picture thought I am sharing... My father in law Gordon, my daughter Noelle, my husband Scot, my mother in law Nora Ann, and my son Cale. I took this picture last night. Scot's parents visited our church last night and came out to our house after church. Nora Ann brought 2 delicious cakes that we enjoyed after hot dogs and chili!

I will pray for your "fitness". Will you pray for mine? It's a slow prcess, but it's happening. I lost 2 more pounds for a grand total of 9!! My goal is 40.

Any change with your uncle?

I enjoyed your daybook. The coconut cake would tempt me also. I started buying the Slimfast snack bars for when I'm tempted. They really help. I have the walk the lbs away tape. I don't use it because I had rather walk in front of a movie or something. A nice picture. Thanks for sharing. Doylene
