The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, September 30, 2012

Outside my window... It is still dark

I am thinking... What a busy week it has been full of new experiences.

I am thankful for... The fact that it seems like I have finally kicked the cold I have been fighting for the past few weeks.

From the kitchen...
~Today: Ham, Buns, Scalloped Potatoes, Corn, Broccoli, Salad, Chocolate Roll
~Monday: Tuscan Tilapia with Rice, Carrots, Tossed Salad, Chocolate Eclair Squares
~Tuesday: Baked Pork Chops, Italian Parmesean Potatoes, Green Beans, Tossed Salad, Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake
~Wednesday: Chicken & Sweet Pepper Stir-Fry, Rice, Broccoli, Asian Salad, Chocolate Roll
~Thursday: Chili (crockpot), Buns, Tossed Salad, Chocolate Eclair Squares
~Friday: Out
~Saturday: Lasagna, Ceasar Salad, Garlic Bread, Brownies

I am wearing... Sweat pants and a sweat shirt - ready to head out for a morning walk before church.

I am creating... Jars of food for my pantry.

I am reading... People of Babel by Vaughn Heppner

I am praying for... Safe travels this week.

Pondering these words...  Joy can be real only if people look on their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happines.  ~Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy~

I am still hoping... For a long, beautiful fall.

I am hearing... The dishwasher and soft music playing the background.

Around the house... Preparing for my daughter to come home for the weekend, thanksgiving and birthdays!

One of my favorite things... My daughter coming home - even if it is a short visit!

A few plans for the rest of the week...
~Monday:  Fall Decorating & Office Work
~Tuesday:  Shopping & Errads
~Wednesday:  Cooking & Cleaning
~Thursday:  Any last minute things that need doing for the weekend.
~Friday:  Drive to pick up daughter from the airport
~Saturday:  Visiting & shopping

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
