I found Young Maidens Daybook off of a blog, and thought that it would be fun to try. But, I decided to add the "From the kitchen" to it. Just because I am young, doesn’t mean I don’t cook!!! 😉
Today…March 16th 2009
Outside my window…Is a delightful day!! Maybe I should go out after lunch and rake the yard a bit! : ) The sun is shining, and it is 60 degrees in the sun!!! Warmest it has been for awhile.
I am thinking…That I should make some more fudge–we ate up what I made last week! : ) And, that I ought to get a pair of shoes for outside–my size of shoes don’t grow in trees…or should I say, Wal-Marts and K-Marts! 😉
I am thankful for…Our barn that is still in one piece. It has been a year last Friday since it caught fire. Don’t worry, a post of it is coming soon 😉
I am wearing…My green and blue jumper that has rosebuds all over it with a white shirt. And white ankle socks with my shoes.
I am reading…My Bible–Philippians, 1st Kings, Proverbs, and Psalms. Also, "Barbara Bush", and "Getting The Most From Your Llama" that I got from the library through ILL. It is due next week, so I am trying to get that finished. I just finished reading "Fireproof" and "Multiple Bles8ings".
I am creating…My 4-H dress. Starting early for once!!! I tat a little every day too. And my sewing business website that I hope to have going soon!!
From the kitchen…Black beans!!! I love cooking and eating beans that are not from a can!! Tonight is black bean and rice burritos. Also from the kitchen…lunch time!!!
One of my favorite things…Baby goats nibbling on my fingers. And, just baby goats, period!
For education this week…I am starting a new science book, and I hope to do more history and Spanish then I did last week. History is one of my favorite subjects! A really neat website we found is history.com where you can spend hours just looking!!! : )
A keeper at home skill I am using/learning …Cooking, sewing, and such 🙂 Nothing in particular right now. One that I want to learn is how to put in a zipper and have it mastered enough so that it is as easy as button holes!!! Hmmm….that may take awhile! 😉
A spiritual lesson I’m learning…Praying–a quote that we have on one of our calendars say, "The busier the day, the more you need to pray". I don’t think that those were the exact words though. Often, people think "oh, I am so busy today, I think I’ll skip praying since it takes so long!" Which is the opposite of what we should do!
A godly character trait I plan to work on…Serving.
Scripture I am memorizing…Finishing Psalm 91 and am starting on James 1.
I am praying for…That I will have more patience with my younger siblings!
For the rest of the week…Going to the dentist tomorrow, helping Daddy (along with 3 of my sisters) to get the rest of the 3 loads of the wood (or was it 4?), help rake the yard as my part of buying a Spanish program, write a few letters, write a paper for our next 4-H club since I am secretary, anything else you want to add to the list? 😉
A picture I’d like to share…
One who thinks that he is king of the barn–and yard too. And I might as well add the driveway and cars!
