For Today:  Sunday, February 15, 2015

Outside my window … The cold gray sky of that last gasp of winter that says, "You thought I was gone, didn't you?"

I am thinking... about art projects, spring, workouts, spring, cleaning the car, spring, rearranging my bedroom.  Did I mention spring?

I am thankful... For new opportunities, for the start of a new week, for a new chance to get it right.

In the kitchen...  I'm planning on doing a few meals ahead of time for days when I'm really busy or don't feel like cooking..  That way the thing I grab that is fast and easy will something nutritious.  I'm also going to try cooking my brown rice with chicken broth instead of water.  Maybe that will give it some flavor.
I am creating... Pondering and setting up for March projects.  I've got several paintings and another quilt-ghan in my mind.

I am going...  It's going to be cold all week with a potential of snow and ice Tuesday, so I'm only going out when I have to.
I am wondering... I'm drawing a blank.
I am reading... This week, I finished The Art of Prayer by Kenneth Hagin Sr.  My review can be found here.  This week, I plan to finish up The Daniel Plan by Rick Warren et al and hopefully start a new book.
I am hoping... to have a good week.

I am looking forward to... Getting my score and next lesson back from the Bible correspondence course I started ages ago.  I finally picked it back up, reread the materials, took the test, and mailed it in.  I should know something by the next daybook.
I am learning
…  I learned a lot about prayer through reading the Hagin book.  I'll learn more as I apply what I've learned.
Around the house...  I'm considering rearranging my bedroom.  The problem is making sure I've got enough workout room.  Time to get out the tape measure.
I am pondering...  I've been given an opportunity that I'm pondering over.  I'm not pondering the yes or no, I'm pondering how it's going to work or if it's going to work.

A favorite quote for today... 

"If you are waiting on the President or Congress to fix your life. Your life will continue to suck." - Dave Ramsey

"Unsuccessful people are always talking about what they deserve. Successful people look around for opportunities to earn it." - The Total Solution Twitter page.

"When people are babies spiritually, somebody has to carry them. Somebody has to feed them. Somebody has to care for them." - Kenneth Hagin Sr.

Speaking about Kanye West not having a degree, "You don't need a degree to be a jackass." - Greg Burgess

One of my favorite things... Organized work space (yeah, good luck with that one).

A few plans for the rest of the week:   Like I said, I'm leaving the house as little as possible.  My plan is more reading and more workouts.

A peek into my day...  

It was way too cold to walk outside today, so I got in 3 miles at the Community Center track. It's one of "those" days.  It took me nearly an hour and a half to do 58 minutes worth of work.  I slowly got in three walking miles on the  track plus probably another half mile going back and forth to the bathroom. Yep, the return of the TeePoo 5k.  Anyway, 3 miles done slowly is better than none.  I only got in 8 total miles this week.  Hopefully this week will be better.


  1. Love to read others' Simple woman's daybook entries! Hope that spring you are waiting for comes quickly for you!!

  2. Yep.... Snowing outside and thinking about spring. :)

    1. I'm cold just thinking about you being in Colorado.

  3. Hopefully you don't get too much in way of nasty weather! I am hoping this past weekend was the last of our yucky weather! I am ready for Spring!! Have a great week!

  4. I love all your quotes! It is cold here and I am thinking of spring! Have a good week!

  5. I love your quotes, especially the one about Kanye West, lol! I too am beyond ready for spring, this has been a very stormy month, with so much snow that our city ( Halifax) is basically closed down today. I usually go for lots of walks, but since we had an ice storm it has been too treacherous, so I am using Leslie Sansone DVD's, they are pretty good, though I have to rearrange my living room each time I do them. Have a great week!

    1. I really like Leslie's videos. Sometimes I wish she'd hush, but they're still great.
