The Simple Woman Daybook 129 -Birthday Edition

FOR TODAY: April 26, 2013
You can find the more daybooks at Simple Woman's Daybook.

Outside my window....darkness.

I am thinking...about the day, reflective thoughts on the past year, frustrations over my poor communication, how it's good to be alive, that I'm loved, and that after a full and wonderful birthday it's time for bed.


I am thankful for...my wonderful friend Justine.

I am wearing...jeans, a pink tee, and my greenish corduroy jacket.

I am creating...a short story to submit to my writing groups annual anthology, maybe if I announce my intentions here there will be a high chance that I will complete the story and actually submit it this year..

I am going...to have a great 32nd journey around the sun.

I am wondering...what is my purpose. I found a list of birthday questions to consider. "What is your purpose?" was the last one and the only one I struggled to answer.

I am reading...Bridge -The Bidding, Mark (Bible), and audiobook is called Incarceron.

I am hoping...to keep the current momentum.

I am looking forward to...seeing my family in nine weeks.

I am hearing...water running and the hum of my computer.

Around the house...so much cat hair. I think I'm going to need to vacuum everyday or shave the cat.

One of my favorite things...challenges. I have a new list of 33 challenges. 33 things or adventures I want to do before I turn 33. I'm undecided if I want to share the whole list or just post accomplishments. I'll think about it tonight.

A few plans for the rest of the week:..a volunteer training event, special Birthday dinner with cake. Inn From the Cold, writing, finish (start) income taxes, Life Group, youth group, and GEMS. 

Two pictures to share:...this is from Thursday's youth group early birthday celebration.
