The Simple Woman Daybook - 1/6/13

I'm joining in with The Simple Woman Daybook today.

FOR TODAY 1/6/13

Outside my window...Mostly Sunny and 48 Degrees, another Glorious Southern California Morning!!

Praising God...for friends who have honest mechanics. Ryan's car is in the shop with a new mechanic that we really like. Hoping the financial damage isn't too bad. 

In Prayer For...a baby. I'm learning to turn my worries into prayers, which takes up much of my thought life these days. 

I am thinking...about one of my closest friends who is home sick today. 

I am thankful...for my home. We have a significantly high homeless rate in the surrounding areas near our home. It hearts my heart to see, and makes me so very thankful at the same time. 

In the kitchen...Lots of home cooked meals planned for this week. We are following in suit with the other billions of new years resolution's of losing weight and saving money. I am killing both birds by cooking more.

I am wearing...a favorite black and white top, black slacks, and black Mary Jane flats. Accessorized with a really great Lion Bracelet and matching earrings. I received the Naked 3 Eye Shadow Pallet from Urban Decay for Christmas. Its been fun playing with the variety of pink shades.

I am creating...a banner for 2014 using the Cricut machine my MIL gave me last year for Christmas and has just been out the box for the first time, our 2013 Photo book, and wrapping up the editing of shots from a Wedding last year.

I am reading... See my Reading List 

I am looking forward to...Getting back with my Bible Study Ladies next week.

I am learning.. to Play the Guitar...or at least I will be in February when classes start up with the City we live in.  

Around the house... we are prepping to finish our guest room painting. 

One of my favorite things...Massage Envy, we have our next monthly appointment scheduled for Saturday morning. Its nice to have a few moments to relax with Ryan in their couples massage room. 

A few plans for the rest of the week: Finishing up Decorating for January, our New Year Planning, and Dinner with my Parents and Aunt and Uncle over the weekend. 

A peek into my day...


  1. Hello! I came from the Simple Woman website.

    I think it is awesome that you are learning to play the guitar as an adult!
    Many blessings to you.

    I followed your blog. You can find me at


  2. Oh Janet, I am so excited to learn, hopefully I can at least make a joyful noise!! Love your blog, and your jewelry! Just beautiful stuff!

  3. That is quite the long reading list. I love to read, but seem to have less and less time to do so. I have a long list on my Kindle app, but sometimes it is slow going. Hope your friend feels better soon. Thanks for sharing.
