Simple Woman's Daybook May 18th Edition and More....

For Today...

Outside my window... really cool slanted rays of sunshine streaming in

I am thinking... the silence in my house right now is pure bliss

From the learning rooms... got a plan for myself for over the summer, if it works all of KK's assignments will be worked up for next year before summer is over.

I am thankful for... the quiet time I got to spend this morning immersed in the Word.

From the kitchen... chicken for dinner is thawing and I just brewed a fresh pot of coffee

I am wearing... hair in a pony tail, black shorts, and new hot pink top

I am reading... Stepping Heavenward, On the Shores of Silver Lake, and The Last Lecture

I am hoping... to get the shelf and top of the fridge organized today

I am creating... just finished a graduation card for "the boy"

I am praying... the changes being made in our house to gear up for the onslaught of summer that is days away will work!!!!

Around the house... being up with no one else I get so much done!!!!

One of my favorite things... when the girls get caught being extra good

A few plans for the rest of the week... Busy Body has a check up today for her foot which still looks just a tad off to me, KK has the community program she is singing in on Thursday, and we are of course going to Graduation on Friday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Those that read here (the three or four of you ;).....know I have been struggling with feeling overwhelmed with sibling rivalries and not sleeping well at all of late. I want you to know we are trying some new things around the house that I feel have already relieved some of the tension that sometimes hangs in the air. I am taking a different approach to my night time routine as well. I am sleeping better, it isn't exactly where I would like it to be for amount of time a night, but it is better. I am reading more and getting in some different down time thanks to my sweet DH so I am feeling more rested for sure. Over the last two weeks we have seen some great improvements with the girls' and how they are dealing with things. I am praying these good upswings only continue from now on. I expect the occasional off day but when they greatly outweigh what should be a regular low key kind of day then it is time to change things up. I got lost in my devotional and the word this morning in this blissful quiet I am enjoying right now and that today is just one more blessing from our God who is SO GREAT!!!! I hope you all have a fantastic week!!

Music: Silence
Weather: Sun streaming in, cool out yet, and the dew is still on the ground
Mood: I am wonderful this morning
Dinner: Chicken Drumsticks (not sure yet what else)


  1. Good news! I hope the momentum keeps going. :) That picture makes me think, "Dum Dum wants gum gum." (from Night at the Museum) Lisa~

  2. We loved that movie, can't wait till the 2nd one hits the theaters.
