Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside My Window... Still pretty pitch black out there.
I am Thinking... about my good weekend, and hoping to carry that optimism into the coming week.
I am Thankful For... a husband who went for a run with me yesterday (even though I *really* didn't want to) and for his pushing me to run just a little farther than I meant to so that I can now say I have run 6.3km in a row, without stopping, for the first time in my life!
From the Kitchen... coffee, but no cream in the fridge, so a spoonful (or 4!) of hot chocolate mix stirred in to get my brain functioning.
I am Wearing... a groovy, funky, soft and sleak, and fluffy poncho thing that my mom knit for me several years ago that simultaneously makes me feel sophisticated and like curling up for a nap.
I am Creating... some kids with really weird senses of humour!
I am Going... to need to hurry and finish this blog because the kids are all awake!
I am Reading... The Brothers Karamazov and can't put it down. And realizing I totally would have skipped over hundreds of pages of it if I ever had to read it in a school course.
I am Hoping... to finally get lyrics to this song I'm trying to write. Seriously about to throw it out the window! :-)
I am Hearing... a remarkable peace and quiet in a house of this many children.
Around the house... laundry day!
One of my favourite things... seeing my husband and oldest girl enjoy a cup of tea and bible study together on the couch.
A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week... a lovely dinner guest, a trip to the library, and lots of laughter (hopefully!)
A Picture thought I'm Sharing...(wistfully waiting for a spring day like this!)
