The Simple Woman's Daybook August 6, 2015
Outside My Window...It is a bright and sunny day. The weather is perfect at 75 degrees with a slight breeze.
I am thinking...that it's August already. We will be going on vacation around the middle of the month. I still get that 'school' feeling eventhough I'm a volunteer. I read something that described it very well. August is one long Sunday night, waiting for school to start.
I am thankful for... all that Tim does for us. I have to remember to tell him when I see things he's done.
From the kitchen...is the sound of the coffee maker making my cup of coffee for the morning.
I am wearing...pj's and flip flops. Gotta have coffee on the screened in porch before I do anything.
I am creating... a bunch of new cards using the Fan Club Challenges on SCS. Some I'm making duplicates of so I can donate to Cleveland Clinic this week.
I am going... to have to get more envelopes and card jackets at Hollos.
I am reading...my Bible a little bit more. Last night in our Bible Study I said I needed help reading more often. Everyone else said they had the same problem. So we prayed that everyone would find time to be alone with God and get closer to Him by reading every day.
I am hoping...that the time that Ben and Rachel are in Texas goes quickly so they will be home again soon.
I am hearing...the ticking of the clock and a plane outside. Just heard Sarah's car door close, so she's home.
One of my favorite things...is going to sleep on clean sheets. I don't know why they feel better, but they do.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I've got to deliver cards to Cleveland Clinic, get a haircut and make more cards. Love making cards and being challenged by the hostesses on Splitcoast.
Last night we talked about using our spiritual gifts. Two of the people took a test that helped them determine what their gift is. We described what our gifts were. We also described it as something you do for others in the name of Christ. You LOVE doing it.
Can you guess what my gift is? My gift is encouragement, hence I'm a card maker. Now I have to remember to send more of them. They can't encourage if they are in the box I put them in.
Here are some pictures I thought were worth sharing...I found this beautiful quilt card on Pinterest. I'm going to see if I can make it
.Look at this beauty. I wanted to see if I could do something similar but not with snowflakes, so it could be used any time of year.
