The Simple Woman

FOR TODAY July 13, 2010

Outside my window...there is a breeze going through the sycamore trees.

I am thinking...about how I am going to get to the funeral on Thursday.

I am thankful for...friends, cyber and in real life ones.

From the learning rooms...things are quiet for  now.

From the kitchen...I think the light is on, but no one is in there.

I am wearing...my purple shirt and white floral skirt. Nice and cool for a summer day.

I am creating...travel plans for Thursday

I am going...to King City on Thursday.

I am reading...The Scarlet and The Black

I am hoping...that the running around this afternoon flows well.

I am hearing...one of the kids making a table wobble.

Around the house...it is time to straighten up a little.

One of my favorite things...summer birthday parties.

A few plans for the rest of the week: piano lessons, dance classes, funeral, cleaning the studio.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

This was taken at my nephew's graduation.  The young lady on the left is my oldest daughter.  The one on the right is my second daughter.  The one in the middle is my niece.

The Simple Woman is a wonderful and simple way to journal.  Check her out at:

Remember what to ask for

As a homeschooling mom I hear, "I don't have the patience to homeschool." My reply is usually that patience isn't required but that asking for the grace to homeschool and then to be open to that grace is what is key.

But, reading an email today reminded me that I should also be more specific in what I ask for. In other areas of my life, I am more specific in what I ask for during prayer.

Specifically the topic of the email was about slow readers. What was the first thing it listed to do? Take it to God. Wow, fail on my part. I pray for my children. I ask that God lead me to help them in what they need in their daily life. Why haven't I remembered to say, "Lord, please help #5 with her reading?" That is specific.

The Simple Woman


FOR TODAY July 7, 2010

Outside my window...there are a lot of teenagers in the pool. They are taking a dip after hiking in the riverbed.

I am thinking...I would really like to go on a retreat.

I am thankful for...my husband.

From the learning rooms...all is quiet.

From the kitchen...all is quiet.

I am wearing...peasant shirt, denim shorts.

I am creating...a information file for Ford Excursions.

I am going...to the Family conference Sunday

I am reading...The Bride.

I am hoping...the mayhem stays outside.

I am hearing...the six year old tattle on Jesse because he tore the noodle into shreds.

Around the house...things are quiet because the mayhem is outside. :)

One of my favorite things...my online friends.

A few plans for the rest of the week:shopping, birthday parties, Family Conference

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...Gabe and Steve's new toy

These are actually two of my husband's favorite things. :) The truck is actually simple. It is a 1969 Chevy C10. Definitely not as complicated as what the Suburban's engine looks like.
