The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Saturday, November 27, 2010

Outside my window... It is cloudy and grey but the wind isn't blowing today :)

I am thinking...  I need to run to the store and stop by my parents and I need to find time so I can finish up some of my projects for the craft show next Saturday.

I am thankful for... Schedules and Tea.  I don't think I could get through a week without both of those things.

From the learning rooms... English:  Career Portfolio and for Biology:  Respiratory System

From the kitchen... Leftovers today.

I am wearing... Jeans and a brown hoodie.

I am creating... Some Christmas flower arrangements.

I am going... To head outside and get some of those errands done.

I am reading... A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George.

I am praying for... my daughter's upcoming job interview.

Pondering these words... The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else- we are the busiest people in the world. - Eric Hoffer

I am STILL hoping... The weather holds until we can get the outside decorations done on Tuesday.

I am hearing... The furnace running, my daughter turning the pages of a new book she started reading.

Around the house... Some basic housework and school work.

One of my favorite things... An afternoon cup of tea.

A few plans for the rest of the week...  Sunday - put up inside Christmas decorations, Monday - daughter's job interview, Tuesday - put up outside Christmas decorations, Wednesday - Home stuff, Thursday - help mom with a show and errands in the city, Friday - finish up what needs doing for craft show, Saturday - craft show

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Our house at Christmas a few years ago.

  1. I don't know why, but doing these posts and reading them calms me. I am going to order this book you are reading on my kindle as soon as I sign off here. I love your post and your picture is beautiful. Your home looks warm and inviting.

  2. It looks like you have busy week ahead. The photo of your Christmas decorations is pretty. I'm hoping we will be putting our's up by the end of the week. I also love a cup of tea in the afternoon. (I'm drinking one right now.) Enjoy the moments of your week! :)

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for stopping by my lonely blog..I appreciate your comment. I also loved reading your blog and your tablescape looks wonderful.


  4. I hope your daughter has a successful job interview. It can be trying, I know, I'm going through the same thing with my son. It has become a very competitive world that we live in! Good luck. Your house looks very pretty all dressed for the holidays!

  5. Oh my...your house looked beautiful! :)

    Take your time...what you are pondering is exactly what I have been thinking about myself.

    Be blessed!
