The Simple Woman's Daybook #12

FOR TODAY... Jan. 18, 2010

Outside my window... I can hear the birds chirping endlessly and it makes me happy hearing nature sounds like this.

I am thinking... Of what other things should we improve in the children's new rooms to make it more comfortable for them.

I am thankful for... God's provision for minor renovations at home to provide DS and DD their own private spaces.

I am wearing... A plain pink cotton shirt-dress.

I am remembering... Friday 'til Sunday's huge mess when the entire house was filled with clutter and carpentry stuff because we renovated two rooms for my DS and DD.

I am going... To thoroughly clean and vacuum the house after all the renovations are done.

I am reading... Nothing at the moment; will have to put everything in place first, and clean, clean, clean the house! =)

I am hoping... That the kids will continue to love their new separate rooms and enjoy sleeping on their new beds too.

On my mind... A tall glass of Dark Mocha Frappe from Starbucks.

From the learning rooms... Exercises on Multiplication and Division for both kids.

Noticing that... Gina needs a bedrail to prevent her from falling off her bed at night!

Pondering these words... Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. -- Jeremiah 33:3

From the kitchen... Beef with Cheese, Egg Drop Soup, and Sauteed Mung Beans.

Around the house... Only the chirping of the birds are keeping me company, and I like it because some alone time like this can also be enjoyable.

One of my favorite things... A happy DS and DD in their new separate rooms! =)

From my picture journal...

Thanks to Peggy for allowing me to take part in The Simple Woman's Daybook. Blessings and have a great week, everyone!


  1. how i love to wake up in the morning hearing birds' chirping rather than cars honking like crazy. haha!

  2. Hi Pia, I think the birds are up to something -- I saw one building a nest near the roof, haha. But I welcome a future Bird Hotel near my room window. =)

    I know your unit is on a high floor; the one that I miss from your end is the spectacular view of the city! =)

  3. well, spectacular view... hmmm... maybe so, but with all the noise from the streets... sometimes it's irritating. but i'm not complaining. i still thank God for my unit. that's where He placed me until His next instruction.
