The Simple Woman’s Daybook

simple-woman-daybook-smallFor Today… Tuesday November 23, 2010

Outside my window… it is sunny and a chilly 35 degrees. Yesterday we enjoyed TWO walks in the random warm humid weather! It smelled like Spring yesterday, today it looks like fall. The yuck part of fall. Bare trees, dead grass and the knowledge that a good snow fall is weeks away and spring flowers are even further!

I am thinking… that I am looking forward to the short work week for David and my in-laws coming to stay for a looong weekend!!

AND that it would be awesome if the kids napped a little longer than usual today. I have some cleaning to finish up before company gets here and I’d really like to have time to just sit in the quiet.

I am thankful for… my grandma. Such a blessing to have her visit! So fun to have someone to talk to about homemaking when she lived on the farm, learning new skills and talking recipes!

AND that Aaron’s fall this morning wasn’t very bad despite what it first looked like and we DID NOT have to go to the hospital!! YAY!! His tongue and chin will heal.

I am wearing… black yoga pants, pink T and (not so white anymore) down vest and old crocks as “slippers” Currently hunting for that perfect pair of real slippers… you know, ones that have some traction so I don’t slid down the stairs anymore or slip around on the hard floors but keep my feet comfy-cozy.

I am remembering… Thanksgiving 2 years ago when I made my first turkey! Last year David smoked outside, but this year it’s back to my turn. I will be stuffing my turkey with apples, pineapple, celery and carrots… what about you?

I am going… to take it slow this week and enjoy having family all around.

I am reading… “Little Women” for book club and the Bible. Not as far ahead of my yearly schedule as before but I’m in Daniel and very much enjoying it.

I am hoping… I don’t get a headache today. I was busy yesterday and didn’t drink much water AT ALL. oops.

On my mind… thinking about all the fun things coming up… a fondue birthday dinner, Thanksgiving, putting up our Christmas tree, Christmas! and BIL’s wedding!

Noticing that… my back gets sore when I am busy. not cool.

From the kitchen… for lunch today we had leftover cheeseburger in paradise soup.

One of my favorite things: bright sunlight coming through the windows and a BIG cup of chai

A few plans for the rest of the week: family family family

two pictures to share…

The kids, enjoying the new set up on our little porch.
