I used to participate in The Simple Woman’s Daybook on a regular basis. With so much going on right now, I thought it might be fun to use her daybook platform, with a few of my own changes, to catch up a bit!
(If you click on the links below, and then make a purchase, some of them may put a few pennies into my pocket. Of course, there is no additional cost to you. I am always grateful to those of you who choose to bless me this way. You can read about how I spend those pennies, and more about how I earn them, in my disclosure policy.)
I am thinking – How glad I was to see Will this afternoon! He’s been away at winter camp with the youth from our church since Friday. It’s way too quiet around here when he’s not around.
I am wearing – Black Land’s End knit pants, given to me as hand-me-downs years ago, and they’re still going strong, a grey Disneyland sweatshirt, pink and white striped socks, and my favorite Chuck Taylor’s with the hot pink laces. Nine earrings, too. Always.
I am wondering – if I can pull off a weekend away with Copper in the near future. He’s working on call a couple of days a week, and he’s been doing lots of home improvement stuff the rest of the week. He is, after all, retired, and a couple of days of rest and relaxation would do him good.
- Lit!: A Christian Guide to Reading Books Taking my time through this one and highlighting a lot.
- The Girl’s Still Got It: Take a Walk with Ruth and the God Who Rocked Her World Love Liz Curtis Higgs!
- Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery Not always a huge fan of the author’s writing style, but the remarkable scope of his books keeps me coming back for more.
- The Twelve Sacred Traditions of Magnificent Mothers-In-Law Reading this one via the Kindle app on my phone and iPad. Seriously, who doesn’t want to be magnificent as a mother-in-law?
- Creating a SenseSational Home I’ve read this book many, many times over the years, but it inspires me in new ways with every reading.
I am hoping – That I can reclaim my normal routine next week once the Olympics are over. These late nights, and therefore, late mornings, are not giving me my most productive days.
I am looking forward to – Baseball! Tryouts are later this week, and the season begins in early March. Will has moved up a division this year, and we’re playing in a different city, with all new coaches, parents and players, and we’re pretty excited to see how the season shapes up.
Around the house – Copper is in the midst of rebuilding my pantry! New, deeper shelves, that will take full advantage of the pantry’s depth and some space that is wasted in the current configuration. Shelves that are spaced more evenly, which will make room for one more shelf – that’s six extra feet of shelf space. Six feet! He’s also wiring the pantry for lighting. Lights! In the pantry! Yay!
I am praying for – My father-in-law who has inoperable cancer. A very dear friend who recently lost her husband. Another dear friend who struggles with chronic, and often debilitating, pain. A lovely young woman from my church who is training to go to South Africa as a biblical counselor.
