Getting to Know you Monday!

Today I am linking up again with Amber at her blog for another making friends Monday.  I can't pass up an opportunity to meet more people and increase my blog cirlce.and talk about myself while answering her questions.   Play along and link up too. 
The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... a cool breeze too cold to open it.  My car and sunshine.

I am thinking.... I have got to be more disciplined and get into a better consistent daily routine. 

I am thankful... For my Jesus and his grace being new every morning.  My wonderful family and friends. A new year and new beginning. 

I am praying... My husband gets paid this month from his part time second job so things will not be so tight and he gets his promotion quickly at his full time job.  Also that my business would pick back up again so we can get ahead and that my kids would get well. 

I am reading... Eating Clean by Tosca Rena.  It is a great book. Dalton and I just finished the reading together the 1st Harry Potter book and will be starting the second one this week.  I am trying to read a non-fiction and a fiction book each month.

I am creating... a better lifestyle for my family.  I have started this year getting us in better eating habits with reading this book.  Gettting us financially free by working my buisness and getting me to the next level.  I want to teach them to be more diciplined and diligent through my actions and expand their thinking that anything is possible through my example.  I want each of them to know who they are in Christ and become fearless of the unknown. 

From the kitchen...not sure what is asking but I am overhauling our pantry and fridge with better food for them to eat and not so much processed food. 

Around the house... there are toys scattered that says three kids live here.  I am trying to be ok with that, while training the kids to pick up after themselves

One of my favorite to be captivated by a good book and get totally involved in a story. I have had trouble doing that since discovering the Twilight series last year and am having trouble leaving the world of Forks.  I also love to be inspired weather is be hearing a great story of accomplishment or something I read in my bible that hits me where I am.  I love the feeling of the accomplishment of meeting a goal and doing what I said I was going to do.  I guess that is more than one thing. 

A few plans for the rest of the week...get more bookings on my books this week and finish my month strong.  Get Dalton over strep and get the germs out of my house.

It took me a long time to find a book that just wowed me after reading Twilight for the first time. I still haven't quite met a character like Edward though. haha.. Even before all the Twilight frenzy, Edward still had me at "You are my life now".

Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Happy Monday!
