Lazy Day of Christmas: Simple Woman's Daybook for Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Outside my window … A rainy and stormy Christmas.

I am thinking...
 Why is a grown woman with no children is already in bed at 6pm on Christmas day?

I am thankful...
for the true meaning of Christmas.

In the kitchen...
  Leftoevers.

I am wearing...
Bedclothes.

I am creating...
Nothing today.

I am going... Nowhere now.  I went to spoil my grandnieces rotten with candy and to visit a friend I hadn’t seen in a while.

I am wondering...
when?

I am reading...
Nothing today.   

I am hoping...for a great 2013 (still).

I am looking forward to...
having a job that I love.

I am learning
… that laughter truly is the best medicine (thanks Craig Ferguson).

Around the house...
nothing.

I am pondering...   still thinking about taking a technology/internet sabbatical. 

A favorite quote for today... "The three things you must always ask yourself before you say anything:  Does this need to be said?  Does this need to be said by me?  Does this need to be said by me now?" - Craig Ferguson

One of my favorite things... Gift Cards.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Getting some workouts in.  Job hunting.  Definitely, a lot of praying.

A peek into my day...


 





I played in a hand bell choir for the first time last night during out Christmas Eve service.  It was great.  I hope we do this again.

Mug Shot: The Simple Woman's Daybook for Monday, December 17, 2012.

Outside my window … A rainy and dreary Monday; what Scottish people call “dreich.”

I am thinking...
 Well, I’m still having my coffee, so I’m still warming up to the idea of thinking. J

I am thankful...
for a roof over my head.

In the kitchen...  Wheat pancakes and eggs for breakfast. Not sure about the rest of the day yet.

I am wearing...
Bedclothes.

I am creating...
Going to try my hand at hand painted greeting cards this week. Not sure how they are going to turn out, but I’m willing to give it a try.

I am going... Nowhere today other than taking my mom to run errands.  It’s wet out and I’m minimizing my time on the road.

I am wondering...
if …only if.

I am reading... The Quiet Little Woman. It’s a trilogy of Christmas short stories by Louisa May Alcott.   

I am hoping...
for a great 2013.

I am looking forward to...
having a job that I love.

I am learning
… that trying to go at life on my own is the worst way to live.

Around the house...
Tidying up and trying to find my Christmas wreaths.

I am pondering...  taking a technology/internet sabbatical. 

A favorite quote for today... "...I guess any attention is good attention for a nutcase!" - Craig Ferguson

One of my favorite things... The laughter of children.  Ain’t nothin’ like it.  J

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Concert with the community band on Tuesday, choir practice on Wednesday, Celebrate Recovery on Friday.  Getting some workouts in.   Not sure what else.

A peek into my day...

Yeah, I know it's weird, but I think this mug is cool.

Peals and Roses The Simple Woman's Daybook for Saturday, December 15, 2012

Outside my window … A quiet, cool evening.

I am thinking...
about Christmas. 

I am thankful...
that God takes care of me and that He loves me.

In the kitchen...
  It’s late, so nothing.

I am wearing... my robe.

I am creating...
an afghan I’m calling “Mom’s Rose Garden” inspired by a quilt by Eleanor Burns.

I am going...to sleep soon.

I am wondering...
if I’ll have a good Christmas. I’m wondering what the new year holds for me.

I am reading...
The Biblical accounts of the birth of Christ in Luke 2 and Matthew 1-2.  Not only do they renew the Christmas spirit in me, but also give me much comfort.

I am hoping...
that life will get better...and stay that way.

I am looking forward to...
A brand new start—new EVERYTHING.
 
I am learning
… that if I really do learn to live “one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time” while looking forward with hope, my mood and attitude is really much better.

Around the house... Just a little tidying up tomorrow.

I am pondering...  how to make the life moves I need to make.  I’m going to need a lot of help with this one.

A favorite quote for today... Careful, Icarus.” – Inside joke from the Late Late Show.

One of my favorite things... Pearl Drums.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Church tomorrow.  Not sure what else.

A peek into my day...
