Simple Woman's Daybook

(Don't forget to click on the picture above and visit Peggy's site!)

For today, November 23, 2009
Outside my window...a gray, cloudy day.


I am thinking...about what needs to be done this week.


I am thankful for...our new house, happy children, an amazing husband, having so much that we can freely give away and still have plenty, and so much more!

But, most of all, my Lord and Savior and the fact that He is intimate and personal with me.


From the learning rooms...nothing! As has been the case practically all month! Back to school next Monday. Meanwhile, there will be some Thanksgiving crafts this week, I'm sure.


From the kitchen...beef stroganoff over egg noodles with a yet-to-be-determined veggie.


I am wearing...jeans, a pullover green knit top, and brown clogs.


I am creating...Christmas gifts! So excited to get back to that today!


I am going...to return what we just bought for Doug for Christmas from the kids – found a better one on Amazon. But, the kids got to physically go pick it out, so that was worth the trip.


I am reading...Just finished Beyond Me(look for a review to come soon!). About to start a couple of Christmas books for review.


I am hoping...that all my Christmas crafts go very smoothly since I have less time than originally planned.


I am hearing...happy children playing. Christmas music (yes, I know, but I just can't help it!)


Around the house...everything is unpacked and clean!


One of my favorite things...this time of year.


A few plans for the rest of the week: steady progress on Christmas gifts, Thanksgiving crafts, Thanksgiving Day in Monroe, preparation for getting back to school next week.


A picture worth sharing...our garlic sprouted in its container in the pantry! So, we planted it, and are looking forward to a garlic crop next summer.

Yea, Ann!

I enjoyed your daybook.

I've been secretly listening to Christmas music too :0)
