Daybook: September 2012

Simple Woman's DaybookOutside my window
The recent rain has rejuevenated the grass; it’s back to a lush green after being brown and crispy from the drought.

I am thinking
About my new scripture memory project of 1 Peter 1

I am wondering
How much longer I’ll have peace and quiet until one or both kiddos comes to find me. They’ve been playing outside with daddy for the last hour.

I am thankful for
Daddy keeping the kiddos outside for the last hour. :)

I am resolving…
To get up earlier than my kids. And for that I need to resolve to get myself in bed shortly after they go to bed, instead of wasting time in the late evening.

I am memorizing…
1 Peter 1

I am gathering…
Ideas for the new blog. It launches tomorrow!

I am hoping…
That Mr. SJ has an easy week of on-call next week. When he’s got a rough week it definitely trickles down to the rest of us, because he can’t give me any break, and the kiddos miss him.

I am reading…
The Truth about the Lordship of Christ by John MacArthur. Among others.

I am pondering these words…
“in the sanctification of the Spirit” (from 1 Peter 1:2). I don’t tend to think of the Spirit as sanctifying, so it’s got me thinking…

I am creating…
A new blog, as I already mentioned. I’m excited about it!

I am going…
Nowhere at all today (yay!) To bookclub on Thursday (yay!) To the library this weekend (yay!) To Influence next month (yay!) To travel out west this fall (yay!)

I am looking forward…
To Awana tomorrow. Hoping that the boy does a better job, and I can leave him and not linger around the hallway most of the time. I’d like to listen to the church service that will be going on in the other part of the building!

I am studying…
1 Peter

I am appreciating…
The cooler temps we’ve had. Seventies or low eighties? How fabulous.

I am hearing…
My family downstairs. Sounds like the boy is getting in trouble for being mean to his sister. And now I hear her coming upstairs, probably to try and get away from her big brother.

I am realizing…
My break is over.

I am praying…
For good sleep for us all tonight, and for my brother’s health.

A plan for the week…
Try and get the house picked up. It’s still suffering from the chaos it devolved into when the kids were sick. And I lost any enthusiasm I ever had towards dealing with it.

A picture to share…

August Daybook

It’s an old one, from a family wedding we attended in July. But I love how cute H looks in her dress, peering out the front door.
