For Today…Thursday, January 3, 2013…it’s been too long since I last visited The Simple Woman’s Daybook…it is time.
Outside My Window…the air is crisp and chilly…the sky is overcast and tree branches sway gently.
I am thinking…how blessed I am to be able to stay inside today in the warmth of my home.
From the learning room…there are many new embroidery stitches I want to try my hand at. I need to spend some time today studying my Sunday School lesson.
I am thankful for…my dear husband.
From the kitchen…I hear a second cup of tea calling me. Later today I will begin preparations for tonight’s supper. We may have breakfast for supper.
I am wearing…a comfy cotton t-shirt, a well-worn denim over-shirt, and soft flannel, leopard print lounge pants. My feet are bare. I’m a true picture of fashion. Well, maybe not.
I am creating…my first block for the CQJP 2013 (crazy quilt journal project).
I am going…to stay home today. I feel so fortunate to have that option.
I am reading…My bible and At Home In Mitford by Jan Karon.
I am hoping…my sweet husband gets a few days off from work in the very near future.
I am hearing…the sounds of silence.
I’m praying…for our country. As a nation we have turned so far from God. I “fear” dark days ahead.
Around the house…it is time for a major decluttering effort. It surely won’t start today, but in the near future I really do need to let go of assorted stuff that is never used and takes up space needlessly.
One of my favorite things…spending time with my husband.
A quote for today…”When someone you love dies, you don’t lose them all at once. You lose them in pieces over time, like how the mail stops coming.” Adult Joe Wentworth – from the movie “Simon Birch”
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I tentatively will make a trip to town tomorrow. I need to go to the bank, the post office, and pick up a few things at the grocery store. I plan on working on my CQJP block in the evenings and spoil my husband when he is not working. Sunday I hope to go to church for the first time in weeks.
