Outside my window…the sun is just peeking up over the trees. Looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day!
I am thinking…how much I enjoyed the weekend. Mickey had several friends over to celebrate his birthday on Saturday, and Sunday’s church services left me with a smile on my face and encouragement to face the week ahead.
I am thankful for…President and Mrs. George W. Bush. I appreciate the unfathomable sacrifices they have made over the last 8 years, and I am going to miss them.
From the kitchen…English breakfast tea, corn flakes, and grapefruit.
I am wearing…my favorite blue p.j.’s and a pair of leopard print slippers.
I am creating…a shopping list.
I am reading…in my Bible: Exodus; just for fun: The Longing by Beverly Lewis. I didn’t have much reading time last week, so hopefully I’ll get this one finished in the next day or two.
I am hoping…that my husband has a happy day. 😉
I am hearing…an old gospel song by the Blackwood Brothers.
Around the house…dusting downstairs and tidying the laundry room.
One of my favorite things…a crackling fire on a cold night.
A few plans for the rest of the week…a trip to the health food store and the library; piano lessons; a parent-teacher meeting at school; a mailout for a big day at our church.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…Finally using our fireplace. 🙂
Thank you for reading my Daybook! You can read more entries at The Simple Woman.
That fireplace sure looks inviting!
The Bev Lewis book is one I have been wanting to read. Is that one part of a series? Our town library has several of her books and I have a request in for that one. But if it is part of a series, I want to start at the beginning. Is it?
I’ve never lived in a house with a real fire but I do appreciate them whenever i visit someone with one.
OH what a nice day book.
Have a blessed day
In HIS keeping,
I would love to have a fireplace! We have an electric one that we use to try and cut heating costs. Great daybook!

I really enjoyed reading your daybook!!
Beautiful Monday Blessings to you!
Oh, how fun! Using the fireplace!
I hope you have a wonderful week!
We’ve never used our fireplace…this really makes me want to!
It’s been a lonnnnggggg time since I’ve heard mention of the “Blackwood Brothers”. My mom, who died almost 5 years ago, loved to hear them. Thanks for the memory! 🙂
Your fireplaces looks so warm and cozy! Have a great day!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It is nice to meet new friends this way…. especially those with 4 kids and a Pastor’s wife. How old are you little ones? Where do you live in FL? Well, I enjoyed reading a little about your family on the blog, and will visit again.
I don’t remember Florida being as cold as it was last week, so I’m sure the fireplace is wonderful! We’ve been keeping ours going non-stop all week-end with temps around 9 degrees.
I used to keep a book going all the time, but strangely, I’ve not read in 3-4 months. I’ll have to look for the one you’re reading.

Thank you for sharing your day with us.
Sounds like you had a blessed and wonderful week………….
That fire sure looks wonderful. I wish we could light one in our fireplace…too much creosote buildup though. I need to call the sweep!!
Well it has certainly been chilly enough for that fireplace. I wish we had one. It is one of my favorite things too.
Enjoy it tonight! It is supposed to be cold again.
Our dream house has a fireplace… for now, I’ll just enjoy looking at yours! :o)
