End of February Daybook

For Today::  Tuesday, February 24th, 2014

Outside My Window::  Overcast but bright, lots of snow.

I am Thinking::  About how to balance so many different things in my life so that I am able to be doing what God wants from me in these areas.

I am Thankful For::  Still thankful for hot soothing drinks as Andrew and I are still sick.  :(

In the Kitchen::  The dishwasher is running and supper is in the crockpot.

I am Wearing::  Jeans, a white t-shirt and white socks.  Hair is up in a pony tail.

I am Creating::  An afghan for my daughter's birthday, slippers for a friends birthday, Flylady Zone detailed cleaning lists.

I am going::  To stay home today.  <3

I am Reading::  If I Perish, by Esther Ahn Kim

We are Looking Forward To::  Healing and returning to our normal activities.

I am Learning::   That I can't do everything, but I can do what God calls me to.

Around the House::  Lots of coughing and headaches (still!).  Working on implementing Flylady Zones.  This week is Zone 5, which for me is the living room and school room.  So far today I've almost completed the school room.  I've sorted through the cabinets and straightened up supplies (markers, crayons, glue sticks, paint, papers etc.). Washed down and straightened up the came shelves and school book shelves.  The book baskets have been straightened up and Christmas, Winter and even some Thanksgiving books have been pulled and put in the basement until next year.  Left to do:  Wipe down light fixtures, clean off my desk and dust.  The rest of the week will be spent in the living room.

I am a Wondering::  How so many crumbs, legos, pens, pencils, socks and money can get under the couch cushions.  Sheesh!

One of My Favorite Things::  Quiet afternoons crocheting, which I'll hopefully be doing after I finish my blog break and cleaning for the day.  :)

A Few Plans For the Rest of the Week::  Hopefully fully recovering from being sick, a weight watchers meeting, gym time, grocery shopping.

A Peek Into My Day::

A peek at the detailed cleaning lists that I have so far.  These pages are in the back of my planner.

Mid-February Daybook

For Today::  Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Outside My Window::  It was a beautiful day full of sunshine ad melting snow.  Andrew was begging to please be allowed to go out and build a snowman.  Unfortunately we are under the weather and we're not able to be out enjoying it.

I am Thinking::  About a friend and her family.  They just received devastating news of stage 4 colon cancer.

I am Thankful For::  Hot soothing Lemon Ginger tea with honey and warm comforting soups and oatmeal.

In the Kitchen::  See above.

I am Wearing::  My flannel nightgown and cozy socks.

I am Creating::  An afghan for my daughter's birthday.

I am going::  To bed early!!!!

I am Wondering::  If I'll get to sleep in tomorrow morning.  I hope!

I am Reading::  If I Perish, by Esther Ahn Kim (I would link but for some reason my computer is not letting me highlight text to copy or link).

We Were Looking Forward To:: Seeing our friends at a Valentine's Day party tomorrow but are
unable to go because of sickness.  I have one very sad little boy who made his Valentine box the first day he found out about the party.

I am Learning::   To pay attention to my bodies signals and responses to food.

Around the House::  Lots of coughing, headaches and naps so far this week.  Science today for Andrew was a Magic School Bus video.  A moms gotta do what a moms gotta do.

I am a Wondering::  If anyone even stops by this blog anymore.  :)

One of My Favorite Things::  The amazing faith and trust of a child and my conversation with Andrew on the way home from the doctor today.  He was certain that if Jesus returned in winter and you had a few football cards tucked into the pocket of your winter jacket you would get to take them to Heaven with you.  He also wondered if Jesus would read the Bible to him for his night night story.

A Few Plans For the Rest of the Week::  Just laying low and recovering.

A Peek Into My Day::

Ipad photo fun while we waited for the doctor.  Our doctor was a good sport and let Andrew take some silly pictures of her but we promised her they wouldn't end up on the web.  ;)
