Simply Stated


I discovered The Simple Woman's Daybook over at my friend B's blog. I decided that I would participate. I thing I can handle a list. So here goes...

FOR TODAY January 11, 2010...

Outside my window...It's cold. The light if fading as this day is running out.

I am thinking...about times past. Carefree days of early childhood spent with my first friends, sitting on an old army blanket in their backyard playing with paperdolls. I was at home there. We lost touch so many years ago. I am going to visit my old friends this month. Anticipating with happiness.

I am thankful for...
God's providence, for the grace and mercy that has been afforded me.

From the kitchen...
beans, tahini, olive oil, garlic, lemon, and smoked paprika waiting for a spin in the Cuisinart to become yummy hummus.

I am wearing...
comfy corduroy pants, a fleece top and my favorite felted wool clogs. Made 'em myself.

I am creating...
experiments in mixed media as I try to find my own voice in my art.

I am going...to see my daughters on Wednesday.

I am reading...A Chance To Die, the inspiring biography of missionary Amy Carmichael.

I am hoping...
that my headache will go away and stay away.

I am hearing...
the fan on my portable heater and the TV in the next room.

Around the house...bathrooms are screaming to be cleaned and the clutter everywhere is really bothering me. I planned today for serious cleaning but, alas, it didn't happen. One bathroom will be cleaned before I go to bed. Mean it.

One of my favorite things...I love trees.

A few plans for the rest of the week: some art time with my friend B, a visit to my daughters, a Tea with my Bible study group, work, worship.


Here is picture for thought I am sharing...my artwork. Inspiration for this came from Pam Carriker's youtube tutorial on mixed media portraits.
I'm not finished with her yet.
