The Simple Woman's Daybook for February 13, 2017

For Today...

Looking out my window ... the sun is just peeking over the ede of the horizon.  Blues and a kiss of pink. Glorious.

I am thinking ... about joy and the Father's work in building up the church and his eventual triumph.  Yesterday's sermon has me, well, joyful. And it looks like it isn't online yet.  Once it is, Lord willing, I'll link it because it was just so very good.

I am thankful ... for such excellent preaching in my own church. For the work that God is doing in churches around our city, state, country, world.  He is on the move, my friends.

One of my favorite things ... coffee. But it's downstairs and I'm upstairs ... I'll get mine soon.

I am wearing ... pajamas still.  I stumbled upstairs while Jason was still asleep to do some work before the children awake.  I'll be dressed soon.

I am creating ... the habit of making my BuJo frame each week.  I add the week's events and then if I add more during the week, it'll be gravy.  Baby steps, yo.

I am reading all of my children's school reading two weeks in a row ... and did my commonplacing, book of centuring, and geographing too.  Huzzah!

I am hoping ... to keep up the habit above.

I am learning ... all the things ...

In my kitchen ... a pot of oatmeal is on for breakfast. My fridge is full of leftovers for dinner and it'll be interesting to find room for the grocery order I placed on Saturday.

In the school room ... On Saturday, Jason bought the materials to make my whiteboard between these two windows.  It'll be so wonderful!

Post Script ... did you see that the Spring Morning Time plans are available at If you wanted to do Morning Time but aren't sure where to begin, or want a break from the planning, these plans will help you out!

Shared Quote ... "This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Ps 118:24

A moment from my day ... from our hike on Saturday. It was mucky but glorious.

Closing Notes: it is the final week of our first term of the year.  We're excited to have this first six weeks in the bag and break week next week.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.
