The Simple Woman's Daybook

I found this, The Simple Woman's Daybook from my sweet friend Becky, and think it's just the right thing for tonight:

Outside my window . . .  today I saw a bird's nest in a tree out our kitchen window, which Sami is very excited to go check-out tomorrow.  (She was too sick today to go out).

I am thinking . . . about the future and trying not to stress.  

I am thankful for . . . two sweet girls peacefully sleeping.

From the kitchen . . . always looking for things to do with all the free beef we get from my parents (a HUGE blessing).  I'm tired of pot roast, but tonight I tried this recipe from Tyler Florence and liked it.

I am wearing . . . blue Old Navy t-shirt, grey tank, pajama pants.

I am creating . . . a business! (shhhh, it's a secret)!

I am going . . . to the library for storytime tomorrow.  We LOVE our teeny tiny library.

I am reading . . . The Catcher in the Rye.

I am hoping . . . my kids sleep well tonight and are healthy again soon (just colds, but still).

I am hearing . . . the cool mist humidifier in my girls' bedroom.

Around the house . . . a box of kleenex, and basket of library books, a doll named Chloe, today's newspaper, books we read tonight, my grey hoodie.

One of my favorite things . . . A Spiritual Formation Workbook and my Wednesday morning small group.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  tomorrow- hopefully get some biz. work done in the morning, story time at the library, a play date in the afternoon, business meeting in the evening, vegetable beef soup from the leftover pot roast for dinner.  Friday- Upstate Minestrone.  Saturday- homemade mac and cheese (I have been craving!), and hopefully get a lot of work done . . . I guess I don't have any plans for the weekend.  Jim has to work on Saturday.  Sunday- bake something for church fellowship after service.

I loved getting this little window into your world. I feel like we almost got to hang out for a little while.

And I'm oh, so curious about that new business you're starting. Do tell!
