The Simple Woman's Daybook for October 10, 2016

For Today...

Looking out my window ... it is dark. I hear a dog barking. The blinds are pulled, so I can't even check for the moon.

I am thinking ... about Painting Pictures of Egypt.

I am thankful ... for the life of a dear member of our congregation who passed today - a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was such a faith-filled encouragement to me and especially to my girls. Please pray for our church family.

One of my favorite things ... is hosting my extended family to celebrate my children. We got to see all of my family on Saturday and Jason's parents yesterday. It was a blessing to celebrate M-girl's coming 12th birthday.

I am wearing ... jeans and a long sleeved black shirt.  The seasons are a-changin'

I am creating ... lists and plans for our last few weeks of school before Yuletide Session.

I am watching ... to The Liturgical Classroom. Again.

I am hoping ... Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God..  (Psalm 20:7) No matter what this election season may hold.

I am learning ... about persevering. A powerful sermon yesterday.

In my kitchen ... cleanup from the weekend partying continues. I need to unload/reload the dishwasher.

In the school room ... We added EHAP to our daily assignment sheet. Hoping it makes a difference:

Post Script:  My friends Jennifer Dow (from Expanding Wisdom) and Ashley Woleben (from Between the Linens) started a new podcast last week: The Classical Homeschool.  I haven't gotten to listen yet, but I shall! I'm sure it's excellent from the feedback I've seen.

A moment from my day

Closing Notes:
Did you know I was on a webinar last week with Mystie Winckler of Simply Convivial and some other fab ladies? You can catch the replay here!

  1. Praying for the members of Grace!!!

  2. I heard "Painting Pictures of Egypt" last year around this time and it was so clearly what I needed to hear. It's still very applicable to my life these days.
