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!)

Great on all counts! (except maybe the hot choc mixed with coffee? I've never tried it though. Way to go on your run!I am proud of you. I took J3 on a bit different route and wore the poor kid out. You shine a light into my dark places :) thanks for sharing.hugs, L. p.s I haven't increased my mileage really, guess I should join you and Chris to go farther!
