Beginning Of February Daybook

For Today 2.1.2010

Outside My's cold, just above zero. Later today snow will begin to fall with little accumulation.

I Am Thinking...that I cannot believe that February is here and Lent is right around the corner.

I Am Thankful For... a husband who leaves in the cold, early-morning hours to go to a cold, lifeless workplace. All so that I get to stay with my children in a warm, cozy and busy house all day.

From The Learning Room...plugging away through our school days, but this week we will begin a couple of units in Earth Science learning about Water and Land, thanks to CurrClick.

From The Kitchen...Slow-Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken that didn't get made last week and perhaps a few other new meals from online.

I Am Creating...Lily's first year scrapbook on Scrapblog. I'm new to it, but I'm enjoying my time playing around with embellishments, stickers and backgrounds!

I Am hopefully (finally!) get Lily signed up for piano lessons.

I Am Reading...The Sister Circle by Vonette Bright & Nancy Moser

I Am Hoping...that God provides answers soon and enlightens my physician next week when I meet with her again.

Around The House...there are Valentine's Day decorations sprinkled here and there, reminding me of *L-O-V-E*.

Lyrics In My Head...'greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city...'

One Of My Favorite single cup of morning coffee, with french vanilla creamer. I enjoy its simplicity.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The, the possibility of a trip to a local library hosting a Zoomobile. Attend a birthday party for two sweet little girls. Cooking with our friend, Fr. G, for his annual Wild Game Feed.

Picture Thought I Am Sharing...

Thanks to our host,The Simple Woman's Daybook.


  1. Thanks for sharing that wonderful recipe. I am going to try it this week! Enjoyed reading about your day.


  2. You have a beautiful family...Hope you have wonderful week and make lots of great memories at home with your kids.

  3. I love that you are thankful to your husband for what he does. When I was a SAHM all day everyday, I would sometimes resent the fact that my hubby *got* to go to work. Now I realize how selfish that was. You are such a loving wife and mother, and I hope God blesses you with more babies to shower your love upon :)

  4. Don't you LOVE cold winter mornings when you get to stay home?! They are certainly a blessing!

    It's a good thing we don't live closer or I may be knocking at your door around dinner time to get in on the Tex-Mex Chicken...yummy:)

    Appointment next week? I will certainly offer my days & prayers from now until then. Can't wait until we can chat this week:)

    Is that a pic of your parents with the kids from their visit last week?

    Enjoy your Monday and hopefully we can connect sometime this week!! Prayers and {{hugs}}

  5. Colleen, you are TOO sweet. I only hope that I am as good of a mom as can easily be portrayed here :)Keep praying for those babies!

    MM, yes, it's especially during the icky winter months that I am VERY grateful that I get to stay home. You, my dear, may come knocking at my door any time! I would cook up a feast and roll out the red carpet if you came to visit. Hopefully this summer. I'd love that!

    And yes, those are my parents in the photo. We were celebrating my dad's belated bday.

  6. That's a great picture. Thanks for sharing. I hope you have a great week. Doylene
