I'm joining in with The Simple Woman Daybook today
For Today – 2/3/14
Outside my window...Partly Cloudy and 52 Degrees. After the tragic loss of my beloved Broncos last night in the Superbowl, I was thankful that Mother Nature joined me with tears of her own. The rain last night was much needed and has left beautiful blue skies in its place. I hope we see some more rain soon, I do love it.
I am thinking...about the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. I haven’t really been a fan of too many of the movies he has been in, but he did capture me. I believe that he had wonderful talent and depth. Sometimes I wonder what the emotional impact is on the body and soul when you are accessing such deep parts of your being and talent.
I am thankful...that my parents made it back safely from their mission trip in Mexico!
In the kitchen...Lots of Advocare Boxes. Today is Day 1 of the 24 day challenge. It starts with a 10 day cleanse. This is my first cleanse. I will have lots of yummy fruits, veggies, and lean meat in my fridge before the end of today!
I am wearing...A black, white, and grey top that has lots of bling on it, with matching grey slacks, and black flats. I forgot my watch and earrings, which makes me, feel a little incomplete. Does anyone else ever feel like that?
I am creating...Valentine’s Day Decorations and Editing Pictures from a recent photo shoot. It was a 1st Birthday Party, and this sweet Baby Girl just makes me smile!
I am going...on a Massage Date Night with my Hubby this Friday night! I am super excited.
I am reading...I am finishing up my last book from my January Reading plan, Juggling Act - Bringing Balance to your Faith, Family, and Work by Pat Gelsinger. I am pretty proud of myself that I made it through most of the books for January in my Reading Plan. I've got about 30% more to go, and I am challenged and loving every chapter of it! I look forward to getting into my book selections for February: 24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life by Matthew Sleeth, Undaunted: Daring to do what God calls you to do by Christine Caine (I saw here at Women of Faith two years ago and was blown out of the water by her story), One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Furgus
I am hoping...to see some health changes while doing the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. I am hoping to see some weight an inches melt away, to get in better overall health, and see changes to my blood sugar and diabetes control.
I am looking forward to... Valentine’s Day! We have a great evening planned with Dinner and a Movie. I might actually get to enjoy a chick flick with the hubby!
I am learning…Guitar Lessons Start on 2/13/14 – I am getting both excited and anxious a bit about this! I am praying that I pick up the instrument quickly. I would really love to accompany the ladies in my Tuesday Evening Bible study. We really need some kind of instrument to help us make a joyful sound!
Around the house...We are moving into our guest room after wrapping up painting in there. We will be working on the project of refreshing our bedroom over the next couple weeks.
A favorite quote for today...
A few plans for the rest of the week: Work, Decorating for Valentine’s Day, Moving our Bedroom, Date Night, Getting my Nails Done, Church
A peek into my day...This was actually yesterday! Our home has been all decked out with Bronco’s colors for the last couple weeks, and our Superbowl Party was no different. I just love these straws I found, they came in multiple patterns, and of course in Orange and Blue!
