My February Daybook

Outside my window...

It looks like it could rain. I wish it would.
I am thinking...
Whether I will get any time to myself this evening.
I am thankful...
For the trials, still. Praise God for the trials that will teach me and change me into something better.
In the kitchen...
The dishes, they need doing. And a chocolate frosted banana cake waiting to be eaten.
I am wearing...
A blue top and black swishy pants. Oh and shoes.
I am creating...

The Christmas play for this year. They want a script by May. Since they liked my script in 2013, they asked me for a sequel. Oh boy! I feel kinda stuck though, so I better start praying for direction now.
I am going...
To the gym tonight I hope. We have been so bad about it. I hate the idea of paying for a gym membership that we don't use. I am going to go, I am going to go...
I am wondering...
What bills need to be paid on my next payday. What the new products coming out for Pampered Chef are (We have our launch this Friday). When I am going to actually wash my car. How to help my family bring in some cash by doing odd jobs. What the diagnosis from my Mom's neurologist appointment will be. If I will ever get through the current books I am reading.
I am reading...
Luthiel's Song by Robert Marston Fanney
The Crucified Ones by Charles Newbold

I am hoping...
For stress reduction and more rain. We need rain so bad here on the Central Coast of California. I say bring on a deluge! Or... showers of blessings, I would take those too.
I am looking forward to...
The Pampered Chef Spring Launch this Saturday in Santa Clara, CA. I can't wait to get back together with my team mates, see the new products coming out March 1st and get refreshed to restart my business.
I am learning
Patience, every single day with my family. I am also learning that my Mom's health and metal abilities are worse off than I thought.
Around the house...
Not much has changed. We still need to clean it. Oh, but we got to replace a broken kitchen faucet this weekend. What an ordeal that was, but after 3 trips to Home Depot we finally got it done.
I am pondering...
How my relationship with God is today. How can I submit to His will better and what kinds of exciting changes this can bring into my life.
A favorite quote for today...
"I remembered all of these things, and I decided to instead write about the most urgent threat to the sanctity of marriage. Divorce." Matt Walsh
One of my favorite things...
HOT sugar cookies, right out of the oven! I am drooling just thinking about it.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Gym tonight, church Wed. night, gym again Thurs. night and heading out to San Jose Friday night. Then... Pampered Chef Spring Launch on Saturday! Church on Sunday and a 94th birthday party Sunday night!
A peek into my day...

Work... nothing exciting.


  1. Returning the visit to my blog (::Meditatio::). You've got a bit of a drive to get to San Jose! I'm about an hour closer. (I'm up near Sacramento but my parents live in San Jose.)

    Yay Pampered Chef! My husband's parish in Montana had someone who sold it so our church kitchen was well-outfitted. I totally love my cookie scoops and used them frequently in Montana (not so much now as I don't have a dishwasher) and I have a set of picnicware from them that is also wonderful.

    Did y'all get decent rain from this latest round of storms?

    1. I lived in Sacramento for 5 years. Pampered Chef continues to amaze me with the items they provide for sale. The rain has been nice, but it is not enough to stop the drought. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I hope you received some rain! We are in winter wonderland here!! I wish you well with writing your script!

    I hope your week went well and thanks for stopping by!

    1. We have finally been getting rain. I love the rain. I have been watching about the snow. Stay safe and warm if you can. I feel a little lost about the script. I thought I knew what I was going to do, but now I am lost. Oh well, I am sure I will find my way through it with God's guidance. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Warm sugar cookies makes my mouth water! Enjoy your time at your new product launch. It sounds like fun! Have a great week.

  4. I enjoyed reading your daybook post!
    You create the Christmas play yourself? Wow!
    I know that California needs rain, and I sure wish we could share some of ours with you.
    Until next time...Kathy
