The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, December 11, 2011

Outside my window... It is still dark but a touch of pink is starting to brighten the sky to the east.

I am thinking...About my family and also what I would like to do this afternoon.

I am thankful for... My family and my home.

From the kitchen... Chocolate Chip Muffins are baking in the oven for breakfast, along with a fruit salad and yogurt.  For lunch will be ham, scalloped potatoes, corn, green beans, tossed salad and for dessert, vanilla slices.

I am wearing...  Dark brown dress pants, red tank top with dark brown cardigan, and my favorite three toned brown/tan high heels.

I am creating... A x-stitch picture of a cardinal.

I am going... To church this morning and possibly a potluck this evening, depending on the weather.

I am reading... A Woman's High Calling by Elizabeth George

I am praying for... A friend of my daughters who is struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts.

Pondering these words... Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredient of a truly merry Christmas (Peg Bracken)

I am STILL hoping... To go to the mountains.

I am hearing... The furnace running, otherwise it is quiet as the rest of the house is still sleeping.

Around the house... Will hopefully finish moving over the office desk onto the smaller one and then move the larger desk to the downstairs "hobby room" we are creating.

One of my favorite things... French Vanilla coffee with Vanilla Caramel creamer.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Christmas baking, helping serve lunch at church for the college students, finish Christmas shopping and maybe wrapping?, teach a girl how to input new books into the church library system, and study for exam on Saturday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

My "just because" roses.
