Daybook For Sunday January 10, 2010

Outside my window... the coldest weather I can remember in quite some time. I find nothing redeeming about winter once Christmas is over.

I am thinking... about a Bible study I will be teaching for single moms starting the last Thursday of this month. This was an unexpected opportunity but one that both Curt and I felt I should do. So I am preparing and planning for it between now and then. It's on Proverbs 31, which is fitting, don't you think?

I am thankful for... a husband who goes out in the cold to get me chicken lo mein from the Chinese place just because I want it.

I am wearing... a sweatshirt, flannel plaid pj pants, thick socks. And I am still cold!

I am remembering... how much simpler my life was when my kids were smaller. Now they are all over the place all the time. It's hard to keep up with all their whereabouts!!

I am going... as few places as possible in this cold weather! Did I say I think that I am allergic to cold weather?

I am currently reading... writing books: Novelist's Essential Guide to Crafting Scenes, The Art of War For Writers, Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance... and some books for She Reads-- top secret what they are!

I am hoping... to get a lot done this week. I have a lofty list of goals to tackle.

Pondering these words... "To fill the hour and leave no crevice... that is happiness." Ralph Waldo Emerson

From the kitchen... savory, warm, comfort foods for cold weather (posting my menu tomorrow). Pumpkin bread that never got baked over the holidays but will still taste good.

Around the house... as little housework as possible. Laundry, dishes, and chores for the kids.

One of my favorite things... hot chocolate, warm pjs and a good book!
Pin It!

Ok Marybeth....I've never posted anything to your blog but I read it frequently. I know you had recently been on a diet and lost a good amount of weight. What I am wondering is, when you talk of these yummy, good-sounding, comfort foods at your home, are you eating them too?! :) I have recently started a program and lost a good chunk also.....but it doesn't stop the cravings for that yummy comfort food! I guess I just had to tell you that! Lol, thanks! :)

I'm allergic to the cold weather too. It's been much colder than any winter here I can recall. Thank God for central heat! Have a blessed week.

I pop by your blog from time to time and saw your daybook. Do you link it to Simple Woman's Daybook? Mine is linked there on Mondays, but here is my link
