The Simple Woman’s Daybook: May 12, 2014

Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY May 12, 2014

Outside my window… dark. It has gotten warm lately and it’s supposed to be 95F tomorrow. I am not amused.

I am thinking… that my Netflix membership is paying for itself in the seasons of Leverage that I’m going through right now.

I am thankful… that Daniel hasn’t come out to curl up with me — I might get some quiet prayer time tonight without having to think about getting the bear child back to bed.

In the kitchen… dishes to do. Wheeeeeeee!!!

I am wearing… purple Old Navy shirt and black sweats from Target.

I am praying for… a special intention, for Daniel to keep developing speech, for peace in my life, and for Mairama Y., one of the young women in Nigeria who was kidnapped by Boko Haram.

I am going… to enjoy my mani/pedi tomorrow.

I am wondering… what Ann Coulter was thinking this weekend. I think the best one was “I am a miserable person who peddles hate to make money off of dumb Republicans.” Just sayin’.

I am reading… Girl At the End of the World by Elizabeth Esther. I finished Something Other Than God by Jennifer Fulwiler yesterday and it was AWESOME.

I am hoping… getting my calluses removed with a Dremel tool tomorrow isn’t too painful. They’re pretty bad.

I am looking forward to… seeing my evil twin and his wife this weekend for the communal birthday celebration. I haven’t seen my sister-in-law since Thanksgiving and I haven’t seen the evil twin since March.

I am hearing the clock belonging to Jon’s great-grandfather.

Around the house… quiet right now. I’m thankful for it.

I am pondering… so many things internally. Introvert, yo!

A favorite quote for today… “Some people feel guilty about their anxieties and regard them as a defect of faith. I don’t agree at all. They are afflictions, not sins. Like all afflictions, they are, if we can so take them, our share in the Passion of Christ.” — C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcom, Chiefly on Prayer

One of my favorite things… silly house panthers who are claiming abuse and neglect. (Can you tell Edda is being a pest?)

A few plans for the rest of the week: mani/pedi tomorrow morning, ABA therapy for Daniel every afternoon this week, hair cut on Thursday, meeting and errands in Elk Grove on Friday, and spending Saturday with my parents.

A peek into my day… “Come and I Will Sing You” by Great Big Sea. Lyrics and meanings are here. It’s one that gets stuck in my head.

  1. So enjoyed your daybook today. I too am reading Something Other Than God. I love the C.S. Lewis quote so much I shared it on FB. Looking forward to listening to the song as well.
