Simple Woman's Daybook for April 6th

The Simple Woman's Daybook is something I have wanted to take part in before. I am starting today and hopefully every Tuesday from now on I am going do this. You can join The Simple Woman's Daybook too and share about yourself!


Outside my window...It is gray out and looks like it will rain. We need the rain to wash away the dirt from winter.

I am thinking... That if I truly knew what was pleasing in the Lord's eyes I would see, act and do things very differently than I do.

I am thankful for...My husband who shows his love to me everyday.

From the learning rooms... Rachel is learning to add mixed numbers, Hope is mastering cursive handwriting, Dennis is reading really well and Bethany loves everything about school (You have to love this stage!).

From the kitchen... Breakfast dishes are done, the homemade frozen soup is thawing for lunch and best of all a fresh cup of coffee is ready.

I am wearing...Khaki pants, white t-shirt and a pony tail of course.

I am creating... Just a menu and grocery List!
I am going...To the chiropractor...hopefully!
I am reading...The Maker's Diet By Jordan Rubin, Wait Quietly (Devotion) By Dean Merrill and Turning Hearts Toward Home By Rolf Zettersten.
I am hoping... That if I can get into the Chiropractor he can help my spinning head.

I am hearing...The sounds of children playing and music from Matthew's movie that is playing.

Around the house...Seat work for the older girls has begun, the baby is settling for her nap and we are going to make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies to go with the soup for lunch.
One of my favorite things...The quietness of the house before anyone is up and I have time to pray and drink coffee.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Awana tonight for the girls, I am taking the baby to see an Eye Specialist tomorrow (please pray that all is well for her), grocery shop and buy sandals for the children all in the closest city to us which is a two hour drive.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Blessings everyone!

The format keeps messing up so I hope you can read this post okay!


  1. Christine, I absolutely love this idea and I may begin doing it for my family blog.

    I also love to wake up and enjoy the quiet time of prayer and bible reading with my fresh cup of coffee before the family is up. :)

    Thanks for sharing this idea!

  2. Absolutely love the picture, I have several like this of my children sleeping with their daddy.

  3. Praying for the baby.

    I love your peaceful outlook and contemplative take on your day. Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven!

  4. We will pray for your little one! Thanks for sharing on SWD, I enjoyed your entry.

  5. welcome! I just love your picture..it always warms my heart to see a papa with a wee one!

  6. Welcome to SWD! I'm so impressed with your weight loss log on your blog! I think I'd be too chicken to try that, but it sure is great accountability! Great job on the weight loss!!

  7. Ditto to Ann's comment ~ Are you able to bake cookies for the kids and not eat any yourself?? Way to Go! =)

    ~another mom of six not so young ones

  8. Welcome. I hope you feel better soon and that the drs. appt. goes well.

    I've done the SWD for about four months now and love it! At the end of the year my husband is going to "publish" my blog in a hardcover book for me.

    Come by for a visit,

  9. Lovely idea!!! Lovely picture! You're a lovely person.

    Is there an issue regarding the baby's eyes? A student of mine is blind and they were told her baby sister is also blind. BUT - there was a miracle when they got the results back from Sick Kids - she can see just fine. There can be miracles...

  10. I do this once in awhile also Christine! I love The Simple Womens Daybook! :) So neat to read about your day!
