'Simple Woman'

I always wanted to do one of these, so here I am doing one.

Simple Woman

For Today, December 11, 2010

Outside my window... the sky is darkening into evening and it is a clear cold as the birds finish their dinner for the night.

I am thinking... about life and how much I have learned in my few short years.

I am thankful for... my family, a warm home, food, friends and each breath.

I am praying for... the time to go to my dad when the time comes and the patience to get through this holiday season.

I am wearing... a wool skirt from my parents, shirt and sweater with a beret and boots, aka-church clothes.

I am creating... various knitting and sewing projects, in whatever 'spare' time I can manage.

I am going... to get through today's school work, read to the boys, and decorate the tree!

I am reading... A Poem a Day, to the best of my ability, when I remember; Little House on the Prairie, with the family; wanting to start the updated book about Grand Duchess Elizabeth, the New Martyr of the Communist Yoke.

I am hoping... to stay awake long enough to go to bed at a reasonable time and finish some projects this week.

I am hearing... Katherine trying to play and sing Christmas carols, Vince Guaraldi and Jay making off the cuff remarks.

I am remembering... how glad I am for everything I have and many holidays past.

From the learning rooms... Taking a break for the season, but everyday brings new things!

From the kitchen... simple dinner after sharing a big lunch with our church family for Katherine's name/saints day.

Around the house... rearranging and getting things in order for St Nicholas Day!

On my mind... Everything and nothing...dinner, projects, the upcoming week...

Noticing that... learning and loving in life are lovely.

Pondering these words...
1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

2While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

3Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

5Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:

6Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

7Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:

8The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

9The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

10The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 146

One of my favorite things... learning new things and practicing old.

A few plans for the rest of the week... dance, swim, knitting, date with hubby, birthday party, fun feis, St Nicholas day and prep!

Well, that's went ok, but tehre seems to be a running theme :o)
