The Simple Woman's Daybook

Yom Sheni, the 17th day of the 4th month

Outside My Window...
the big kittens are playing and scampering about.

I am thinking...
of how much I'm already enjoying the book I just started reading--'The Other Side of the Sun' by Madeleine L'Engle.

I am thankful for...
being able to have a nice long conversation with my 25-year-old son a couple days ago.

From the kitchen...
This week's dinners:
Southwestern Chicken*
Crockpot Roast
Chicken Soup in a Pot*
Beef Stew*
Steak with Pizza Potatoes*
Super Easy Chicken*
Beans and Cheeseburger Macaroni
(*these recipes are from 'Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly' by Phyllis Pellman Good)

I am wearing...
a purple skirt and top.

I am creating...
a crocheted baby headband to go with the Tulip Time dress and booties.

I am going...
nowhere today, but will probably be doing the usual shopping and errands on Preparation Day later in the week.

I am reading...
for the Fast of the Fourth Month:
Zekaryah (Zechariah) 8:19-23
Shemot (Exodus) 32:11-14, 34:1-10
Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 55:6-56:8

The Scriptures in Chronological Order:
Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 19, 20, 25, 26, 35, 36, 45-49
Dibre HaYamim Bet (2 Chronicles) 36:1-4
Habaqquq (Habakkuk)
Dani'el (Daniel) 1

Parashat Matot (tribes):
Torah--Bemidbar (Numbers) 30:1-32:42
Haftarah--Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 1:1-2:3
Ketuvim Netzarim--Mattithyahu (Matthew) 5:33-37; Acts 9:1-22

'Restoration' by D. Thomas Lancaster

'The Other Side of the Sun' by Madeleine L'Engle

'Pride and Prejudice' by Jane Austen (listening to it on CraftLit)

I am hoping...
that I can finish reading 'The Other Side of the Sun' before it's due back at the library.

I am hearing...
my youngest tattling on his older siblings.

Around the house...
I need to take inventory of the kids' clothes to see what they need before school starts.

One of my favorite things...
is taking a nice relaxing bath.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
RSVP to an invitation.
Return phone calls from family and friends.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Hi Tuppence,
I enjoyed reading your daybook and looking through your blog. I love your header and have never seen another one like it! I especially enjoyed reading the Hebrew (is it Hebrew?) names for the books of the Bible that I'm familiar with like Jeremiah etc.

Tuppence said...

Gina--I think it's actually called Hebrew transliteration into English since it's using the English alphabet instead of the Hebrew. It hopefully sounds like the Hebrew name when spoken out loud, even though it's not actually spelled in Hebrew. For instance, Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) looks like this when spelled in Hebrew letters and is read from right to left: ירמיהו
