Simple Woman's Daybook Resolution

Resolved- firm in purpose or intent; determined.

I should be more resolved to blog this year on a more regular basis. But honestly, I do not want blogging to become just another thing I must do. However, I did think it would be a wonderful resolution to begin this January week by joining in with the Simple Woman's Daybook. 

Outside my window...an upstairs view, "naked" takes on beauty as I gaze upon the tree's bareness; the oak trees still manage to hold onto some of their rusty brown leaves

I am thinking...about tonight's supper.  Frozen meatballs made and stored in the freezer are thawing with the intent to add them to a red tomato sauce and brown rice noodles

I am thankful... for the day's sunshine, making my afternoon walk a delight

I am wearing...black skirt, black tights, cream turtleneck and teal cardigan.

I am creating...flannel receiving blankets with crocheted edges for a special baby girl. I will share some pictures later.

I am venturing...nowhere else for the remainder of the day; an earlier trip out to drop Charlotte at piano while I stopped by the store for some needed items (like laundry detergent)

I am wondering...how Rose is doing today.

I am hoping...to get organized in space and mind this month

I am learning...to hope; to hold on and to let go...I know... an oxymoron of sorts

Around the house...my new sewing and crafting room is taking shape! I spent time in the closet today, placing bins of yarns on the shelf. I purchased a new rug for the middle of the floor on Saturday...love it!

In the kitchen...wheat berries were milled into flour this morning, waiting for me to make some bread.

I am pondering...next year's school choices for Charlotte

                                                    
I pray because the need flows out of me
all the time, waking and sleeping. 
 It doesn't change God, it changes me.
