The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Saturday, November 29, 2014

Outside my window...

I am thinking... I haven't had a cold his me this hard in quite a few years.

I am thankful for... Five days off work to get better.

I am wearing...  Black sweat pants and a burgundy sweatshirt with the cutest owls on the front.

I am creating... Christmas napkins

I am reading... "The Fire Seekers" by Richard Farr

I am praying for... My daughter who has one week of school and then exams and my brother-in-law, that his job hunting would be successful.

Pondering these words... "I have glorified You on earth.  I have finished the work which You have given me to do." ~John 17:4   At the end of my life will I be able to say that?

I am hoping... To be better soon.

I am hearing... The air purifier.

Around the house... Still lots to do to get ready for Christmas.

One of my favorite things... A hot cup of coffee on a cold day.

A few plans for the rest of the week...

~Tuesday:  Work
~Wednesday:  Work
~Thursday:  Shopping, Errands & Visit Parents
