Simple Woman #44

For Today     January 11, 2009

Outside my window...  still dark, branches tossing in the wind, gray clouds, and rain hitting my window.

I am thinking...   one day at a time.

I am thankful for...   Kerry got a call from a guy who wants to remodel a rental... which could possibly be work for Kerry if the *%^$# city planning department won't ax the project.

I am praying for...  WORK.

I am creating...  plans, plans, and more plans.

I am reading...  The Sign of the Beaver - with the boys.

I am hearing...  wind moaning in the trees, boys waking up, and somewhere outside... a frog.

I am remembering...  must call my friend later this morning.  We invited them to dinner last week, but the dad had to work late and we r/s for tonight... and one of theirs was feverish yesterday.

Really, really want to have them over.

Really, really don't want to get sick.

From the learning room...  wars, wars, and more wars, fractions with Tate, polishing Wyatt's report on The Boston Tea Party, and Gunnar learning the "times threes".

From the kitchen...  depends on if we're having company...

Around the house...  too darn much stuff.

On my mind... so glad we went to evening church last night.

Noticing that...  the boys really need their hair cut.  Well, trimmed at least.

Pondering these words...
I started this year confused about a lot of things.  First, I don't even know what decade we're in.  Did we just start a new one?  Or are we in the last year of the old one?  Inquiring minds want to know.

But assuming the decade is now over, I'm trying to figure out how I started it with toddlers and ended it with teens, while I haven't aged at all.
From Sheila.

One of my favorite things...  chocolate.  *sigh*

A few plans for the rest of the week...  Moms In Touch, piano lesson, AWANA, PTO Day... woo hoo for PTO days :0)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Tate, on the roof, watching a storm moving in.

Cool pic! I know the feeling of not waning kids to get sick, but wanting to see friends! I hope and pray that your husband gets work!

I love the picture of Tate on the roof. Numerous members of your family seem to have an "eye" for what makes a great picture.

Praying that job works out for hubby! That would be terrific!

Julie, I'm praying that Kerry finds a job soon. Love that picture of Tate on the roof- storms coming in can be so beautiful. Of course, ours are all of the "white" variety right now, and we're already tired of the snow. Only 60 some days until Spring!

Neat picture. I will say a prayer for work for your husband. Have a great day.

Love the inquisitive nature your boys have!

Is he on the roof of your house!? What a great spot to watch storms roll in!

Work for Kerry continues to be in my prayers.

That is a great picture. We just started a new decade. I think the wind through the trees is one of the best things about winter. I would like some snow. I am praying for your husband a job. God bless you, Doylene
