The Simple Woman's Daybook, 10/25

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. ~

If you are following me and I am not following you, please leave me a comment and let me know.  Also, if I have failed to come by and comment, leave me a comment.  Please know, I would never overlook anyone on purpose.
Thank you, Cheryl

Outside my window...  ~ the weather has been beautiful.  I love it! 

I am thinking...  ~ about the two newest grandbabies.  They are so sweet.
(And they don’t talk back yet.)

I am thankful for...  ~ the years we have had with Granny Dorothy (my mother-in-law).  She is beginning to get a little frail (at 92) and over the weekend we had a bit of a scare.

I am wearing...  ~ everyday, comfortable

I am remembering...  ~ when we brought our oldest daughter home from the hospital.  We didn’t know anything!  Friday, she delivered her fourth child at home under the care of a midwife.  Jenny is so much smarter than I was. LOL

I am praying for… ~ among other things, the people of Haiti.  They have been through so much.

I am going...  ~ be working on finishing up some projects….nothing like being optimistic….right?

I am currently reading...  ~ Worms in My Tea and other Mixed Blessings by Becky Freeman and Ruth Arnold
My Bible

I am hoping...  ~  for a long, pleasant, Indian Summer

On my mind...  ~  the holidays.  Christmas is exactly two months away!

Noticing that...   ~ I have much to do

Pondering these words…  ~ “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”

From the kitchen...  ~ I’m thinking about making a fresh coconut chess pie.  I’ve always used dried coconut, but I have some fresh I need to do something with.

Around the house...  ~ I seem to have children’s clothes stacked everywhere.  I need to start a clothing ministry.

I am creating… ~ a place of rest, only some days I seem to be the one doing most of the resting.

One of my favorite things… ~ autumn;  the smells, the colors, everything

From the Learning Room… ~ every child has potential.  It is our job to find the key that unlocks that potential so success can follow.

A  couple of pictures to share… ~
 These were two lovely crafts I found while surfing some of the blogs.  I thought if you haven't seen them, you might enjoy them.  The links for each one are posted beneath the appropriate picture.
