The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today… Monday, March 22, 2010

Outside my window... It is evening hour when the dogs lie still and the hens are silent. It is a fair 70* tonight.

I am thinking... How precious the youth of my children is. How timeless and still those moments when eyes look up in wonder and questions are safe for them to ask mt.

I am thankful... That my health is improving as is my husbands. The deeper things of life are opening up the wonder of knowledge to the kids. I have had opportunities and have made time for telling them mysteries that few young ones know.

I am wearing... Stocking feet fresh pedicured with moisturizer on them.Cool wet hair that was just washed. Short sleeve pajamas that are cotton and shorts for bottoms. A matching set with flowers.

I am remembering... the beautiful weather we had over the weekend. Saturday we went into town for a car appointment and afterwords stopped into a few thrift stores--one was a new one that just opened up. Didn't find much, but it was fun browsing!

I am going...  to bed soon and delight in my clean bedroom

I am reading... Raising and anxious child. A book on bird houses and the birds who prefer each kind. A book on bats and creating a habitat for them. The Gardening Encyclopedia. To name a few.

I am hoping... That I continue to heal and gain more strength that once the steroids are finished that I still feel this wonderful HA

On my mind... Remember to interact with my Little Dove in her language. To meet her right where she is at and to speak more softly when she just baffles me thinking that she should but does not understand. Accepting that she is simply who she is. 

From the learning rooms…  Love flows, decor is improved.

Noticing that... My focus has greatly improved getting my mind off of the "what if's about Dove"

Pondering these words... My focus got off of me and off the challenges I face with the special needs of my daughter. It got back onto the track of thinking on what I have seen and witnessed and heard in Him
I'm back
Cause that is WHO I AM
as HE IS

From the kitchen… Many fresh veggies from the garden and several herbs for flavors rich in home spun pleasure

Around the house... Work on the master bedroom was accomplished today with stunning results, bills were paid and mailed. Many loads of laundry were also set to fold and put away. Many more to do behind the sofa await me on the morrow.

One of my favorite things: softly spoken word at the back of my neck "I love you" by my beloved Husband

A few plans for the rest of the week:  It will be a busy week. Laundry, Garden need the tomato dugg in and a bit of tidying. Tomorrow begin the taxes, tend and appointment calling for a long drive. Awaiting Dove at the bus stop and a call from Dash for he is walking 4 houses from the school with his friend to go to play at that home. The Grandmother will await them at the corner. He will call me when he gets there for this is a very unusual thing to do for us. I truly enjoy his Grandmother she and I really hit if off. We are very close in age. Wednesday calls for service work at the elementary. An Art Masters presentation, then on to a third grade class (Dash's) to assist a girl who needs reading techniques presented I think in a way to help her with dyslexia. Then another presentation of Art Master.  Then Dash and Dove will ride home with me to go get Dash his second allergy shot of the week.
Thursday I will get Dove and take her far to attend some Physiological testing and then to see the Psychiatrist.  Feed her and get her back to school before the class returns from their lunch.
Friday well a medical appointment at 11: for me. Then home to tend to tasks. Perhaps a little grocery shopping. early matinee for I won the drawing at the allergist. We ware our t-shirts each time and have a ticket placed in the pool. We won! $25. movie tickets and a free popcorn. So then it will be a 30 mile drive one way to take Dove to a sleep over at a friend of ours the kids are good friends. Then back to attend the Arizona Bloggers Tea that is here near my home. Now I learned just as Dash was tucked into bed that at 4:30 he has a party to attend at a skate rink. So I must see to getting a gift before then. Sunday I rest!  Then drive 30 miles one way to go get Dove home.

I love these posts on The Simple Woman's Daybook. It's like getting a peek inside your world. You have been busy. And yet you are still going to the AZ bloggers tea. I'm sorry to say that I won't be there. We recently moved further west and it's just been very busy for us. I hope to join you next time.

I loved your daybook.

Annette said...

I'm like Debbie, love to peek inside your world! When I come by I always picture myself standing in your kitchen looking at everything you've made or are making and listening to your sweet conversation that your having or when you walk to get your babes home I'm walking with you and where chatting about peoples yards and just taking in all that we have in common, the LOVE for our babies.


Hugs to all~

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
