I love to create things out of stuff that I already have. It's the thrifty part of me. I thought up this little denim bulb in my head two days ago
I thought maybe I could make these for family gifts . Or maybe if there is enough interest I can sell them. They are made with recycled denim. I little bit of sewing on the machine. Some hand sticking and a button from my mother-in-laws button stash.
So if you like them and would like two, they sell for $8.00 With shipping.
Give me a shout if your interested. If not, tell me what you think. Cute right?

Outside my window...The sun is shining, the snow patches are melting, and the grass is asking if it's spring
I am thinking...Why do I think to much and complicate things
I am thankful...My God and Savior who is not complicated
From the learning rooms... We reading " Turn Homeward, Hannalee"and she is reading "Indian Captive"
In the kitchen...Just bakes chocolate chip cookies to warm the house up.
I am wearing... Jeans , warm long sleeve shirt and home made crocheted slippers.
I am creating...A lesson plan for our sewing group
I am going...Away next week
I am wondering...If today will be a better school day then it has been the last couple of days
I am reading..."The Gift of Dyslexia"
I am hoping...to get more yard work done
I am looking forward to...the homemade soup we will have tonight at dinner
I am hearing...the kids chat about silly things
Around the house...are piles of things that need a home
I am pondering...how to simplify my life
One of my favorite things...the smell of a wood stove burning pine wood
A few plans for the rest of the week:to lighten up and not be so worried about the things that i have no control over
Take a look at the other lovely daybooks .

This week has been one of those tough weeks for pretty much everything.
Kids are arguing, bickering,complaining ect.
I have even jumped on board with them. I have been yelling, complaining,grumbling and down right irritable.
I don't know about you, but I do not like the way I feel while all of this is going on. I wish I could erase all the hurt and pain that I make and also feel.
When I am in the middle of all the muck, I need to remember to reach out my hands and ask for help.
Help from the one who is always there.
Help when I don't think I need it.
Help and then fall to my knees and give it ALL to him.
So simple, yet not thought of during these challenging times.
A song comes to my mind.
" I'm falling on my knees, offering all of me, Jesus your all this heart is living for"

Have you ever heard of them?
Do you have one?
Well I would love to own one and hope to create one for our lovely chickens.
I have pictures and designs that inspire me.
This one on top looks cozy and a bit small for six rhode island reds. But it's cute.
I was drawn to this tractor until I saw the one below
This coop looks like a tree house for chickens, don't you think? I guess I am thinking I am tall and I want to beagle to stand and get this yummy eggs.
So if you own one could you share with me your plans? Failures? And even
ideas? I hope to find more chicken tractor ideas.

Have you ever injured yourself and not know how it happened?
Well that's me, I hurt my back getting myself dressed for work.
How did it happen? I don't know ! So since Tuesday I have been either on my back , or sitting in a very straight backed chair. Neither one is very comfortable.
I am taking some medication for this extreme pain.
I am very inpatient and want this done and over with like yesterday!
Then I look at all that is around me, my husband and my children , dogs that show there licky affection, a house that looks lived in . How blessed I am to have all these things. Stop complaining Jenn!
Most of all the peace of the Lord is ever present during this time of stillness.
The Lord would say" be still and know that I am God" yes I know I have to be still.
Stillness in body,heart and mind.

My title is something that hopped out of my head during a time of lowness. Why do I feel faint in heart. When the wind blows and you stand firm against it, I say I must not give up. But my heart cries out and says HELP ME!

This morning I woke up to the smell of wood burning in a wood stove. Now mind you I don't own one. My neighbor has an outside wood furnace. I looked outside and the snow was gently flowing through the air, like a picture on a Christmas card. How wonderfully refreshing.
7 How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of the messenger who brings good news,
the good news of peace and salvation,
the news that the God of Israel reigns.

18 Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.
Posted by Jenn at 10:02 AM
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through
I'm not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd's crook
makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life. Ps. 23
