The Simple Woman's Daybook for Jan 9, 2012


Outside my window... it is warm(ish) and nice (for January).

I am thinking...
about taking a nap, but need to make a menu and grocery list.

I am thankful... for a great morning of lessons.

In the kitchen...
it is getting a little bare ...

I am wearing... jeans and pink striped blouse.

I am creating... library lists.

I am going... to the store with the children.

I am wondering... about Job's friends and their advice, motives, etc ... and if I emulate them or if I encourage my friends.

I am reading... A Praying Life by Paul Miller and it is great!  I picked up two books from the library today that look pretty good too ...

I am hoping... today's successes are continued in the coming year.

I am looking forward to... getting back into our routine.

I am learning... 

Around the house... I'm still enjoying my Christmas decorations.  I'll probably take it down next weekend.

I am pondering... the similarities and differences between Joseph and Jesus.

A favorite quote for today... "What you meant for evil, God meant for good." contrasted with "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do."

One of my favorite things... my kids' birthday weekends.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
Piano Lessons.  A date with my huband. Trying out the Firstfruits meeting.

A peek into my day...

Hosted by The Simple Woman's Daybook


  1. Wish I could have heard more of the sermon yesterday, but what I got was good. Your's is the third mention of A Praying Life I've seen/heard in the last week (the others were on the WTM forums and Amanda at church). I'll have to check it out. :)

  2. What is Firstfuits meeting?

    You're the kind of friend that encourages! :)

  3. I am with you on the Christmas decorations :)

  4. Anna, the church library has a couple of copies. It is really encouraging, and I haven't even gotten to the "practical" parts yet.

    Heather, Aw, thanks friend! Firstfruits is the local homeschool support group; they have parent meetings on Thursdays and child events (like gym class). I'm just wanting to check them out.

  5. I've heard Joseph and Jesus compared a lot. I definitely feel that Joseph was meant to be a type of Christ in the old testament.

    I agree about routine, I'm all about that!

    God bless and have a great week!
