Simple Woman's Daybook ~ 11/5/12

For Today:

Outside my window...   Windy, windy, windy.  So windy it woke me up at 5:16.  In the a.m.  But the wind brings the warm, up to 18*C supposedly today.  We'll see.

 I am thinking...   about a meeting I have tonight concerning the church's food cupboard

 I am thankful...   for good friends 
 In the kitchen...  a quick Hungarian supper of sliced sausages, potatoes, onions in a type of stew, lots of apples on the counter so I'm hoping for an apple crisp.

 I am creating...  lists upon lists upon lists for all the things that are on my plate in the next couple of months

 I am going...   to ladies study tonight

 I am wondering...  where the heck all our phones are.  There are 4 of them.  The two I found are both dead and I can't locate the other two.  Which probably means they are also dead.

 I am reading... Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards.  Just started it after setting aside The Winter Palace.  Just could not get into it.

 I am hoping...  I get all my phone calls done that I need to make in the next 2 days.  About thirty of them.  I kid not.

 I am looking forward to... finding them durn phones.  LOL.  No really, I'm looking forward to an extra day off next week, maybe a day trip to the big city?

 I am learning...  to recognize when I no longer have a desire or vision to build and expand on areas and learning that it's okay to hand it off to someone else.  It is not a failure on my part if I do.

Around the house...  way too much cleaning to do.  After a busy weekend, the cleaning sort of got ignored.

 I am pondering...  the message from church yesterday on teaching your children and passing on your faith to them

 A favorite quote for today...   

"A good marriage is not something you find, it's something you work for" 
Gary Thomas
Sacred Marriage
pg. 133 

 One of my favorite things...  a fresh vacuumed carpet.  Weird, I know, but it makes me feel good

 A few plans for the rest of the week:   mega phone calls, grocery shopping, shopping for Operation Christmas Child boxes

A peek into my day:

I tend to put off phone calls -- I would hate having to make that many.

I so agree about it being ok to hand off ministries, or aspects of them, as the Lord leads. I usually feel guilty if I do, but sometimes that desire to do so is from Him and He has someone else prepared for it.

Supper sounds absolutely delicious. Set another place. I'll be right over:)

I just love what you're learning. I need to keep it in mind!

Ouch. That's a lot of calls. I agree with you on the timing to hand off a project. Sometimes it's just someone else's turn :-) Hope the winds don't keep you up again.

Lists upon lists upon lists...that sounds like me, too. I need a list of my lists! ha. But they definitely keep me organized so I'm not complaining about them.

30 phone calls? Yikes. That would be a nightmare for me. I am not a phone person. Hope you got them over with. And found all your phones. :-)

Love the Gary Thomas quote (and the whole book actually). And the picture of the geese. We've had quite a few visiting ones the past few weeks on their way to warmer weather.

Hope you're having a great week!
