The Simple Woman Daybook




FOR TODAY


Outside my window...our autumn flag is flapping furiously in a mighty afternoon gale... even though the temps are very mild today....


I am thinking...I can not believe how fast time is flying by... where is it going.....
what is the hurry.. is it drifting along on this rushing wind....


I am thankful...for all the blessings  of each new day... the knowledge of our Father in heaven who provides and renews, and purposes all good things for us, if we only choose to stay on His path!


In the kitchen...today we had a lovely baked chicken breast leftover that I sliced up with stirfry veggies and rice for our luncheon..... tonight Im thinking a nice chef salad.....


I am wearing...my comfy denim crops and my cozy jammie top... and a sweater... today is the only day we could just stay home and enjoy being comfy!


I am creating...my Christmas planner and creating a spreadsheet to help me in my role as    business manager for my parents and their upcoming move...

I am going... to be finalizing the plans for their move this week and begin actually taking possession of their space in their apartment..

I am wondering...why it is so easy to forget that God is a mighty part of every equation we find ourselves in... dealing with many unknown variables and stressing out over details we cannot fathom..... we must keep God at the center of our plans and know that with Him all things are possible and that He is going before us to make the way clear and each decision will be easier to make


I am reading... I have several books by my bed,,, but alas I just cant get into any of them.


I am hoping... that when all of these decisions have finally been made and the work that goes into making them come to pass is behind us there will be peace and joy, and a sense of accomplishment..... with no regrets...

I am looking forward to...Sunday evening..... we have tickets to see a Broadway production of My Fair Lady at the Preforming arts Auditorium... I am so looking forward to it!!!!!!

I am hearing...the hectic to and fro of traffic on the nearby highway....

Around the house...I have bits and pieces of Christmas and autumn decorations gathering here and there.,...now that I know we will be Thanksgiving...ing just the two of us..... I can start Christmassing in earnest


I am pondering...well, to tell the truth... I am so wiped out from figuring and pushing the details envelop over the past few weeks... my pondering is pushed way back on a back burner....


One of my favorite things...Ive said it before and it holds true today... I love to plan and think about how to make the holidays the best ever... how to create memories taht will last a lifetime, just like the wonderful memories of all my Christmasses through the years..one of these days I can  plan in earnest too... awww!



A few plans for the rest of the week:Important business calls gathering imperative information about what we are to be doing in the next few weeks....conference with the Assisted Living establishment to sign admissions and take possession of the space...... medical appt for mom with the pain specialist..... Wednesday night dinner/ adult Bible Study/ set up for luncheon .....New Spring Singers choir practice and Senior adult Thanksgiving Luncheon..... Prayer Morning at Lynne's ..... begin taking things over to the new apartment (Pray for my strength during this move.... I just barely able to think of helping Lynn do any small bit of moving and still tire very easily.....)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
