The Simple Woman's Daybook for March 2, 2015



FOR TODAY

Outside my window... there is a great deal of snow.

I am thinking... about our next six weeks' term.

I am thankful... for a day all together yesterday.  If worship must be canceled, at least we could spend the day together.

I am wearing... exercise clothes; pilates to begin soon.

I am creating... lists.  I didn't get many of the things done last week that I had hoped to.

I am going... to *revel* in this last week of basketball.

I am wondering... what I'll learn in March.

I am reading... Joan Smith's ninth Berkeley Brigade book.

I am hoping... the second six weeks of this term go as well as the first six did.

I am looking forward to... Pancake Day! The last day of basketball for the year is Saturday.

I am learning... how living a quiet, peaceful life is rebellion against our culture and a way to *revel* in the life God has given me.

Around the house... we should have gotten more done last week.

I am pondering... Matthew 16:24, "Then Jesus told his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me."

A favorite quote for today... "a quiet and gentle spirit" ... a friend of mine said it doesn't mean quiet in the sense of not talking - she is a great extrovert - rather like a cup of water that doesn't get sloshed around when battered from the outside.

A few plans for the rest of the week... basketball, piano, organ, lessons.

A peek into my day... games and snow from yesterday.

  1. We have not received any snow yet here in SW Washington State, I would love some even though I know many in other parts of the US are tired of it. Have a great day.

    1. We don't have nearly as much as a lot of people, but the cold has been miserable for the schools. And, the snow keeps coming on weekends. I don't mind it so much when I don't have to go out and about.

    1. Pancake day is fun; it is like homecoming for the district and a lot of people come back just for it. It is a fundraiser, too. We had a little sleet and rain today, but no more snow.

  3. We finished basketball at my house too. And I must say I am not going to miss it. Have a great week!

    1. For us it just fills time between soccer seasons. We'll have just shy of a month off before the true craziness begins. Hope you have a great week too!

    1. Yes, but I didn't have to leave in it, so it's all good. The roads were perfectly fine today! I hope you do as well :)

  5. I loved the statement you made, that living a quiet peaceful life is like rebellion against our culture; you've given me quite something to ponder on!

    1. I'm so glad. I don't want to be one of those folks who holler about being relevant or radical, yet we can find deep satisfaction and joy in God and what he has given us. Thanks for commenting and I hope you stick around :)
