The Simple Woman's Daybook, 10/18

I know, originally the Simple Woman post was intended for Tuesdays, but I love doing it on Mondays. It helps bring my week in focus. Hope no one minds. ~ Cheryl

Outside my window... ~ we are finally getting a little fall color, which I love!

I am thinking... ~ about Sarah’s story. If you haven’t a clue, you really need to head over to Linda’s blog and add a few lines! (I think I am in love with this little family!)

Oh, and Linda is doing a Christmas cookie recipe book! If you want to join the fun, go here.

I am thankful for... ~ for the prayers I’ve seen answered this week and I am looking forward to see how God answers many more.

I am wearing... ~ my pajamas, still ~ perhaps, all day.

I am remembering... ~ a little boy named Kyle

I am praying for… ~ continuing to pray for baby Alex and his family and for each of you!

I am going... ~ to be busy this week! I will be making chow chow (green tomato relish to you non Okies), drying some red cayenne pepper and trying to figure out what to do with more eggplant.

I am currently reading... ~ only have time for my Bible for now

I am hoping... ~ our beautiful fall weather continues

On my mind... ~ my new grandbaby that is due any day!

Noticing that... ~ there are less than 100 days left in this year! Amazing!

Pondering these words… ~ “I am only one, But still I am one. I cannot do everything, But still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do” – - – Edward Everett Hale

From the kitchen... ~ butternut squash and something good I hope!

Around the house... ~ I am (still) de-cluttering
Worked a little on the wall covering in the kitchen this weekend

I am creating… ~ I’m not, HE IS!

One of my favorite things… ~ butternut squash! I love it! (Who knew?) This is the first year we have tired it.

From the Learning Room… ~ Fall break, but we will be working some or special projects!

A picture to share… ~

I've seen this several times around the net and I love it. I think I am going to do something with it for the granddaughters. Any ideas?

May your day be blessed!


  1. My youngest daughter loves giraffes, i might have to send that photo to her, it is precious. When is your grand due? we have about six weeks! I am ready to hold that baby! God is blessing me mightily right now, I am so thankful. If you have a prayer need, please let me know so I can add it to my list! Love to you & have a glorious week in His Grace! {{hugs}}

  2. Thank you for the nice comment about my Long Table Party. This was actually the first one I have hosted (the idea came from my brother), but I hope to make it an annual event. I love, love, love the quote in your blog today about being only one. I will have to copy it and put it on my bathroom mirror to see each day. Good luck with the new baby. Have a great week.

  3. Good morning Cheryl. Thanks for stopping by and your comment. I won't give up, to important to do that. Patiece is the key and I'm working on that.
    Sorry I haven't stopped by in a bit, we all know the busy stuff. Soon more time for blogs and reading and learning.
    Take care and have a blessed day.
