Simple Woman

FOR TODAY Tuesday, February 17, 2009...

Outside my window... it is dark and possibly still misting. It started pouring rain this evening just as i was heading out - GREAT!

I am thinking... that i am going to be okay! Right? Right!

I am thankful for... so many things. Food, the clothes on my back, shelter, my bed, healthy conversations, etc.. I feel the desire (and/or conviction) to spend less, share more. For example, i would love a new pair of black sunday shoes; the ones i currently wear are about 4 years old. Would it be okay if i wore them until they were literally falling apart and unwearable? People might look at me funny, but i just might go through with it. We don't need as much as we think we do.

From the learning rooms... i realize that i'm probably not technically supposed to answer this question considering i'm still in school myself, but i'm going to anyways. We just completed Exam 1 for each of my classes this semester and i feel good about them all. I'm worried about this semester because i HAVE to pass each of these classes with a 'C' in order to graduate. I've never had a problem before, but that doesn't mean anything... i need to push myself a little harder. I just haven't gotten into the hang and feel of school this semester - which is nothing new - i usually get the flow as finals roll around.

From the kitchen... the banana bread that James and I made last night is sitting on the counter. I've already had 2 helpings today, but i'm thinking i need one more. I must admit i haven't been helping with the dishes lately. I got stuck in a rut and can't seem to get out. I miss my productive helping attitude - please come back. lol!

I am wearing... black t-shirt, blue jeans, black socks, rather large poofy hair down, and no make up. Just how i like it!

I am creating... nada. Yep, nada. I'm trying to figure out something to say, but i got nothin'.

I am going... to eat a piece of banana bread, yes i am! A nice warm piece of banana bread topped with butter. And then i'm going to head to bed.

I am reading... Can We Talk? Priscilla, and my Bible. Part of my homework (recomendation) is to read Blue Like Jazz - has anyone read this? Care to share any thoughts?

I am hoping... to get some rest tonight and wake up early with a happy productive attitude. I need to get back into the hang/mood/swing of helping around the house. I feel so much better about myself and life when i'm working.

I am hearing... the tv - it's on a commercial right now, but i'm watching Monster In Law. Have you seen it?

Around the house... everyone is asleep except me; including China in the recliner across the room. Laundry needs to be done, kitchen needs to be cleaned/swept really bad, my bathroom is desperate for some attention, and well, my bedroom also. I attempted to clean out the backseat of my car about 2 weeks ago, but the mess just landed on the end of my bed. I push it to the left side and sleep on the right. That is TERRIBLE! I have no excuse to be sitting down - plenty of things to do.

One of my favorite things... my t-shirts. I'm such a plain girl. I really like my black and brown fitted T-shirts. You can wear them with almost anything... and add different accessories each time you wear them. Although i'm pretty routine so everytime i wear them i tend to wear the SAME shoes, necklace, and earrings. I'm working on switching it up.

A few plans for the rest of the week... bible study, adult choir, class, subbing on Friday. I think that's about it.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... Meagan and Casie in high school. I'm not sure which year this was. (Help me out girls?) Casie and I were suppose to go to visit Mea at A&M this past weekend, but Casie got sick and mom said "it wasn't a good idea." I know this doesn't make up for it, but I LOVE YOU MEA! And, one of these days, we will come visit you... promise!

Participate or enjoy other Daybooks here.

It's interesting...but I agree with Karen...read it as a book, and not much more. I'm interested to see what you think about it. I might reread it with you lol-love ya
