Welcome if you are joining in from April's Addition of the Simple Woman's Daybook. I’m so glad you’re here!
FOR TODAY – April 7, 2014
Outside my window...A glorious 79 degrees! I love being a California Girl
I am thinking... about planning a Sabbath Sunday for Ryan and I. I really don’t know what this will look like, or how it’s going to turn out, but the idea is really weighing on my heart. I want to take time to stop and rest in my Lord, to celebrate his creation, and the relationship I have with him.
In the kitchen...we are really working on saving money and calories by packing our lunches and eating dinner at home. This bento box rage continues to capture me. I am looking for little cookie cutters and decorations to help my addiction.
I am creating...Deco mesh wreaths, it’s becoming a bit of an obsession for me. My Mom and I are working on spring/Easter one’s tonight while Ryan has Bible Study.
I am going... to focus on creating housekeeping routines that will help me keep the house maintained, and allow me to still live life. I am so good about doing a mass cleaning before we have some kind of event, and then picking up after said event. However, I get so exhausted that I take a week or so off, and then have a disaster to deal with again. I would really like to have a clean house and picked up house everyday so I just have to do deep cleanings once a month.
I am reading... Echoes of Eden and Orphan Justice. I have just started both of these books and I can tell they are both going to push the envelope on my comfort zone.
I am hoping...that we can get a couple of our financial tasks completed this week. This would be helpful to some stress levels.
I am looking forward to...getting our Bedroom painting done.
Around the house...we have Easter decorations up and Angel’s baseball on TV. There is a pretty enthusiastic vibe filling the air.
A favorite quote for today...
A few plans for the rest of the week: Dinner and Crafting tonight with my Mom, Work Celebration Tuesday night, Housework/Laundry/Taxes/Bills on Wednesday and Thursday, and an Angel’s Game on Friday night. This is the first home game we are attending this season!
A peek into my day...These roses are blooming in my front yard. They take my breath away, Love Love Love this pink!
