The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... Sunday, November 9, 2014

Outside my window... The sky is grey and their is a light skiff of snow.  A heavy snowfall warning is in effect for today.

I am thinking... That it is taking me awhile to get going this morning.

I am thankful for... Morning coffee!

I am wearing...  Jeans & a green t-shirt with a black cardigan

I am creating... Scrapbook pages, cards, painting a picture and x-stitching.

I am reading... "A Woman's Guide to Making Right Choices" by Elizabeth George

I am praying for... My daughter's budding relationship.

Pondering these words... "Woman can splash the world with the love of Christ...through kindness, caring, touching, meeting needs, and telling of their love for Christ."  ~Esther Burroughs~

I am hoping... That we don't get the freezing rain before the snow.

I am hearing... The fireplace.

Around the house... All is still quiet.

One of my favorite things... Sitting in front of the fireplace in the quiet of the morning with a steaming cup of fresh brewed coffee.

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

  1. Alana, I always enjoy being here for a visit. You present such a peaceful atmosphere that makes me want to linger here.

    Your African violet is beautiful. Your menus sound delicious (as always). I am curious about the crockpot carrots. We grew our own and I have plenty. I'm looking for new and different ways to prepare them.

    And a heavy snowfall prediction is not what I am ready to hear just yet. Stay safe, my friend!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by! I always enjoy your visits. The crockpot carrots on the menu this week are simply carrots cooked in the crockpot. Add carrots, some water and seasoning. You can also use chicken stock instead of the water for a bit different flavor.

    2. Thanks so much for the tips, Alana. I will be giving them a try this week!


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
