Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY May 5, 2014

Outside my window… dark. It’s 11:00 p.m. and I’m blogging to clear out my brain before I sleep.

I am thinking… about everything going on tomorrow morning and how to get it all done.

I am thankful… for my talk being over and for it going so well.

In the kitchen… pesto quinoa salad with Kalimata olives and feta cheese.

I am wearing… CPC t-shirt and black running shorts.

I am praying for… for the crud in my upper respiratory to go away, for wisdom in how to parent Daniel, and for a few special intentions.

I am going… to be focusing on housework tomorrow morning.

I am wondering… what the future has in store for me after June 15th.

I am reading… Something Other Than God by Jennifer Fulwiler. It’s resonating with me as a convert from atheism/agnosticism to Christianity.

I am hoping… my eye appointment on Wednesday goes well.

I am looking forward to… my massage on Thursday.

I am hearing the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles on iTunes. They are on a playlist with all of my Bach and some of my other classical, chant, and Taizé music.

Around the house… going to be focusing on the kitchen tomorrow.

I am pondering… various things internally.

A favorite quote for today… “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” — C.S. Lewis (I know I share this at least every quarter but it’s one that accurately reflects where I stand on things.)

One of my favorite things… quiet time late at night for prayer.

A few plans for the rest of the week: parent training tomorrow, eye appointment on Wednesday, massage on Thursday morning, counseling appointment on Friday, ABA therapy on every weekday afternoon, and whatever else pops up. I may or may not go to Ladies’ Night Out on Wednesday night depending on how I feel.

A peek into my day… Daniel with my father’s hat at the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia in San Jose on Saturday. Dad kept sticking it on his head and Mom got a picture of it before Daniel removed it.
