Friend Making Monday

Every since losing a post, I've been in a blogging blah land. I've visited blogs, but haven't posted anything. It' s been a while since I've participated in Friend Makin Monday. This week FMM is perfect to jump in because it is simple...The Simple Woman's Daybook.

Visit Amber at {a.e.filkins} to check out Friend Makin Monday and join in!


The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...the wind is blowing the bare branches, and it is COLD. The pond has ripples that are moving swiftly, and three horses are around the pond. They have never been in that field before.

I am thinking...that I cannot wait until Spring. The garden to plant, flowers, warm weather, flip flops, being outdoors. I'm also thinking about how I cannot wait to get another dog.

I am thankful...that I am getting on the right track again with eating right and exercising. I am on day 22 of the 30 Day Shred. I'm loving the results. I'm thankful for all those joining in.


I am praying...for the people of Haiti. I still cannot get Haiti out of my mind. I'm also praying for continued miracles to happen there. You can hear about some miracles here.

I am reading... The Bible in 90 days. I'm a little behind, but hopefully will be caught up by the end of the week. Reading 12 pages a day takes about 1 hour. I need to read 2 hours a day for several days to get caught up!

I am creating...Caden's 100 day project, Valentines for school, and a Valentine wreath.

From the kitchen...I love when Michael makes me a green smoothie in the morning. He started that when I started subbing this year. There was one waiting for me this morning.

Around the house...is much to do. I've got my morning routine done, but laundry will be going ALL day!

One of my favorite things...is Caden's affectionate personality. Not a day goes by that he doesn't tell me how much he loves me, and that I look beautiful. I also love when he blows me a kiss when I drop him off at Kindergarten. It melts my heart!

A few plans for the rest of the week... to whip this house into shape, sub at school, Upward basketball, Wednesday night church, plan a date with hubby, and get Valentine's made.

Rhonda! I am sooooooo proud of you for shredding. We started together and it has grown into a beautiful thing that is beneficial to so many -- including me. I can't wait to be well so I can hit Day 24. My body is actually craving the exercise which is an incredible feeling.

My favorite thing that you posted is that Caden blows you a kiss on his way to kindergarten. That just melted my heart a little.

Hello my friend!!! You are doing so well on your shredding -- yay!! I wasn't feeling well so had to miss yesterday, but did level 3 on Saturday. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!

Good plans this week! I can't wait to see your Valentine's Day wreath - I am sure it will be so cute!

Love you friend. Have a wonderful Monday!

XOXO

I am needing spring so I can get my garden also. I hope to make a bigger one this time. Happy FMM!!

The Bible in 90 days?! Wow! I would love to do that one day! Right now though I've got myself on at least four chapters a day. Sometimes more, sometimes less, it depends on the events of the day.

(I'll be sure to show off those bookmars soon, but I have to wait because they are gifts! You can check out mmmcrafts.blogspot.com though! That's where I got the idea for them!)


Happy Monday!

Tesa said...

Glad to hear you love the results of The Shred. I will have to look into this.

Reading the Bible in 90 days is a neat goal. I hop you are enjoying it and learning from it as well.

Happy FMM!

Trudy said...

What a wonderful post Rhonda! Such a beautiful little slice of your life in the daybook.

I am looking forward to springtime too...and not just because it coincides with baby time!

God bless and happy FMM!

Cathy said...

Hi, I'm so glad I bounced into your blog. You and I have so much in common from what I've read in your profile.

I'm doing 30 day shred and reading the Bible in 90 days, too!

God bless!

Skooks said...

Green Smoothies . . . everyone who has them loves them, but I have yet to take the plunge. I bet I'd get into it if I started . . .

Oh and Happy FMM!
