The Simple Woman's Daybook…


FOR TODAY…  December 28, 2009

Outside my window… It is dark – since it is just midnight and I’m not ready to sleep.

I am thinking… that I need to get busy and get a few things sewn up by Saturday.

I am thankful for… my daughter, Tara Danielle.  I love and miss her so much – but, I hope to go out to Phoenix in this next year.

From the learning rooms…  I want to learn how to knit different types of socks.

From the kitchen… Have not yet completed my menu for the week – but, I do know that I need to finish using up the apples I have and will be making applesauce tomorrow.  Also, have some pears and want to make some pear crisp.

I am wearing…  comfy black sweat pants, a bluish sweat top, and socks.

I am creating… some really pretty pillowcases.

I am going… to celebrate the Christmas holidays with Scarlett and Elizabeth this coming Saturday.

I am reading… An Ice Cold Grave by Charlaine Harris.  It is a good read!

I am hoping… that we don’t have a lot of snow or ice this week.  I want to go see Mother on Wednesday.

I am hearing… the tv in the background…not really paying attention to it.

Around the house…  I want to get totally caught up with my laundry, desk clean up, and cleaning the floors before New Year’s  Day.  They say that what you do on New Year’s Day is what you will do all year long.  So, I’d rather  be knitting, quilting and reading that day.

One of my favorite things… was the Sugar Cookies that my friend made!  How come we don’t make those all year long.  They are really good.

A few plans for the rest of the week: visit mother, catch up on e-mail; clean house; and get some sewing done, too.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…

    A full and good week coming up I see. Oh. About why we don’t make those sugar cookies all year long….they stick to the body too closely. It all falls off if it happens over the holidays.
