The Simple Woman’s Daybook for January 2, 2017

For Today… January 2, 2017. 2017. Seriously.

Looking out my window … it’s a hazy foggy morning.  It’s actually almost not morning anymore.

I am thinking … I should get dressed and start taking ornaments off the tree.

I am thankful … that I seem to finally be over my head cold. The 15 hours of sleep yesterday through this morning was very helpful.

One of my favorite things … watching the Rose Parade with my girls. They’re loving it like I do.

I am wearing … still in jammies.

I am creating … a series about why I need a hobby.  This prompt was not the impetus. It’s actually going to be up on this week.

I am reading … well, not yet, but I’m planning to read Peacemaking Women by Tara Barthel because of my Word for the Year: }pacify{

I am hoping … for a productive week of planning and preparation for our new homeschool year starting next week.

I am learning … about

In my kitchen … snacky foods today. So glad Jason went to the store for me.  Over the weekend, I was able to pull together our traditional New Year’s meals – Hoppin’ John and Pork and Sauerkraut.

In the school room … I think the #maskingtapetable is clear.  Ready for me to spend time this week planning and pre-reading!

Post Script … Are you wanting to get organized this January? My friend Mystie has her amazin Simplified Organization course, of course. But if you join by Thursday, January 5, she has a group of people pulled together to walk through the course together: New Year New Attitude Consistency Crew.  I’m going to try to keep up because I definitely need a refresher!

Shared Quote “But our citizenship is in heaven …” (Philippians 3:20) My pastor preached on this yesterday and gave me much to consider.

A moment from my day … Rose Parade, ladders, ornament bins. Yep, this is what my day will entail.

Closing Notes:
I always choose a Word for the Year.  This year, as I mentioned, I chose }pacify{.  My friend Anna also chooses one and she chose Tune. I *love* her choice! I wish I had thought of it! Go read her post for her reasons. Beautiful!
