A Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my's sunny and a little cool, but it's going to be a very nice day!

I am thinking...what was I thinking when I invited my niece to have a sleep over last night? She just wouldn't fall asleep last night, and then at 4:00am she came to my room, shined a toy lantern in my face, and said "I can't sleep anymore." What!? Are you kidding me? Too bad! Go back to bed.

I am thankful for...a God that not only loves me, but actually likes me. Imagine that. He knows my innermost thoughts and He still likes me.

From the learning rooms...A&K are off from school today, back tomorrow. Woo Hoo!

From the kitchen...some Thai food tonight, salads, maybe some kind of soup.

I am creating...if my so-called friend (you know who you are) would answer the phone so I could borrow her sizzix, I'm going to be making these hair clips I saw on Etsy.
I am sit in the sun and do a little reading today.

I am reading..."The Invisible Wall" by Harry Bernstein. Wow! It's a true story of a young Jewish boy's coming of age (somewhere in England I gather) just before the start of WWI. He lives in a neighborhood where the Jews live on one side of the street and the Christians on the other. They have a mutual respect for one another, but no relationship. I just started it on Saturday and I find it riveting, and heart wrenching.

I am hoping...this will be an uneventful week.

I am mom talking with Katie. It's so sweet to hear these kids have a "grown up" conversation.
Around the house...the house is clean, woo hoo!
One of my favorite things...clothes that feel comfy and look nice, and that make me feel good about myself.

A few plans for the rest of my week...not much!
Here is a picture thought I'm sharing... Adam playing Dan's guitar (looks like a cello!). Adam said, "I can do better than Miss. Kris (our church's children's worship leader). He's pretty full of himself!
