my daybook

There's a really unique blog I came across (via Zoanna) called The Simple Woman's Daybook that has these 'thought starters'. Check it out if you'd like. I thought it was a neat way to help myself slow down and take a minute to just be "in the moment". Go ahead and take a minute to do one yourself...even if you're not a blogger, just jot the answers down in a journal or even on a slip of paper! It's a great way to sharpen your focus and cultivate a thankful awareness of what's going on in and around you right now.

January 28, 2010...

Outside my window...beautiful snow is falling, and cars are creeping slowly down the road.

I am thinking...of my hubby, who just called and is having a rough time getting to work on unexpectedly slick roads.

I am thankful for...the opportunity I had to earn some extra cash this month to fund some of my little 'projects'.

From the kitchen...the hum of the much appreciated dishwasher.

I am jammies (which are Eagles flannels, given to me by my husband a few years ago; he said if I was gonna wear flannel to bed, it was at least gonna be his team!)...hey, it's still early!!

I am curtains and other homey touches to our little house.

I am Home Depot to look for new handles for my cupboards and price counter top...provided the roads clear up!

I am reading...Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth by Richard Foster (and waiting for my next Ted Dekker book to come in at the library!!)

I am hoping...that God will move in big ways in our church this year.

I am hearing..."Martha Speaks" - which we have a particular affinity to at our house, since Martha reminds us of Maggie. :o)

Around the house...there's lots to be done!!

One of my favorite things...changing things around the house to make it more cozy!

A few plans for the rest of the week: prayer night tonight; makes some new curtains for the kitchen and bath; maybe paint a wall in the kitchen; provide taxi service for my kids; pray for my hubby and other guys from church as they attend the "Man Up" conference...

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...our snuggly Miss Maggie this morning...

Aw, I just love the boy and his dog picture. Like also your ability (which I lack) to keep those daybooks brief:).
