Daybook for February 22, 2011

Outside my window... a bright sun reflecting off the freshly fallen snow. 

I am thinking... about ways to simplify my home even more. I do not have a lot of extra things sitting around, but I can see about fifteen things that I just need to give away or throw out. They are just taking up space and collecting dust.

I am thankful for... a new beautiful day to enjoy.

From the kitchen... kielbasa, shells and cheese, potatoes, and broccoli for dinner. This is the kind of meal the kids love, but it is not one that Chris and I get excited about.

Daybook on Saint Valentine's Day

Outside my window... a beautiful sun filled sky.

I am thinking... about the kindness and goodness of God.

I am thankful for... warmer weather.

From the kitchen... Chris is bringing home Chinese tonight, and I am making banana bread.

February Book List

We are reading many books this month about Saint Valentine's Day and a few more books about snow. Here are some of the books we enjoy reading together.



Saint Valentine, written and illustrated by Robert Sabuda, is the story of a kind Roman doctor named Valentine. The story of how he helped restore a blind girl's sight.

A winter walk

Today the boys and I were feeling restless, so we went to a local park.

Simplicity


Pray
My life is full of many things, God. Help me to see all things as tools, and not goals.
                                                                        Small Steps for Catholic Moms, February 1



When I read the prayer this morning, I finally felt like I understood what simplicity means. I have spent a lot of time trying to simplify my life. I read books on how to simplify my home, my schedule, and my parenting. I enjoyed the books and got some great ideas, but my life is not simple. I can declutter, turn off the television, and say no to one more commitment, but I will still have too much stuff and too many obligations. After all, I am a wife to a great man, a mother of three active boys, a daughter, sister, aunt, and a friend.
