This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Trying a Daybook

I thought I would join the "Daybook" meme for a jumpstart this week...

FOR TODAY Monday, January 26, 2009...

Outside my window...It is dreary and cold. The weathermen promise snow for the next few days. I wouldn't mind if they were wrong.

I am thinking...I'm glad I did my daily reading and exercised.

I am thankful for...Time with people I love this weekend.

From the learning rooms...The boys will do their online test this morning for their religion class tonight. Roo is reading The Andromeda Strain (among other things). Boo is reading Ralph S. Mouse. We've jumped back into more worksheets for a time. Even though I prefer a more laid back approach, there is a sense of accomplishment when we see completed work.

From the kitchen...I actually cooked and baked this weekend! There is leftover chili and pumpkin cake.

I am wearing...the clothes I worked out in. I need to change!!

I am creating...I need to repair the necklace I made my sister (Sorry, Sue! I'm slow.) And I need to work on the one I promised her for Christmas.

I am going...to be "driving to dance" and religion class.

I am reading...books for the Winter Reading Challenge and the Chunkster Challenge 2009.

I am hoping...the roads will not be difficult tonight.

I am hearing...very little. Peaceful, peaceful oasis for a moment.

Around the house...the Christmas lights and decorations are still up for one last week.

One of my favorite things...holding my children even though they are exceeding my lap limit these days.

A few plans for the rest of the week:Another doctor's visit. More driving. Book reviews.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...A warmer memory...

Visit Peggy at The Simple Woman's Daybook and see who else is keeping a "daybook."

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I LOVE pumpkin bars, cake, bread, anything pumpkin. I might be inspired today since you planted the seed, so to speak.

Have a great week!

I loved reading your daybook. I've seen others, but have not ever tried to do one. I'll have to check out the others.

I see the Simple Woman's Daybook around every now and then, but it's something I've never done. Right now I have enough "blog fodder", so maybe after my 100 days are over it's something I can use for inspiration. Loved reading yours!

I think part of the pleasure of a daybook is helping us hold on to the preciousness of a "normal" day. Blessings!

I enjoyed your daybook. The roads where I live are a challenge right now, too. I hope you have safety as you drive.

This is definitely the time of year for chili. Enjoy!

God bless you!
