Day 19 and The Simple Woman's Daybook

Day 19
of Our 65 Day Journey!

Isn't this a gorgeous time of year?!!!

If you didn't come by sure a scroll down!  Angela blessed us with a guest post!

The Simple Woman’s Daybook

Outside my window...  ~  It’s dark, a little cool, and cloudy.  A fine mist is falling.

I am thinking...  ~ the preparations for Thanksgiving. 

I am thankful for...  ~ In keeping with the Thirty Days of Thanks….
Monday ~ (I got so excited about Angela being my guest, I forgot to post what I was thankful for)….so, I am thankful for all the natural beauty God has placed around us.
Tuesday ~ (today) I am thankful for the freedom we have in Christ Jesus.

I am wearing...  ~ Tan slacks, a rose colored top and *surprise* shoes!
Well, sometimes you have to get out and go to the grocery store.

I am creating... ~ An orderly home, an orderly life.  There is MUCH work to be done, but it is up to me.

From the learning rooms... ~ The boys have been working on individual projects and I have been learning a few new things, too!

I am remembering… ~ What it was like to wade in the creek on warmer days.

I am praying ~ For a good friend who is dealing with (too) many family issues, for our country and for Israel.

I am going...  ~To attempt some new craft projects.

I am currently reading...  ~ I’m still reading Mother Warriors by Jenny McCarthy, about the fight to overcome Autism.  I want something really good to read…..I’ve been looking, trying to decide what to order.  I usually have at least a ½ dozen books stashed away, for days that are better spent inside with a warm cup of something yummy to drink .  This year I’ve let the days slip up on me. ;)

I am hoping...  ~ to find time to get a pedicure …soon!

I am looking forward to...~ the smell of turkey filling the house!

On my mind...  ~ my kids

Noticing that...  the boys are going to need new boots

From the kitchen...  ~ Fresh bread is rising and I’ll be putting a pot roast on to cook in a few hours.  (I think I’ll bake the boys (and Honey hunk) a pan of cinnamon rolls.)  Later, we’ll roast some pumpkin seeds.

Around the house...  ~ I’m making progress….some days, I think I am probably the only one who notices.

One of my favorite things… A warm cozy quilt that smells like it just came off the clothesline.

A picture to share… ~

Quote of the Week… ~

"The longings of your heart are not incidental, they are critical messages. The desires of your heart are not to be ignored, they are to be consulted. As the wind turns the weather vane, so God uses your passions to turn your life. God is too gracious to ask you to do something you hate." ~Max Lucado ~ Just Like Jesus.

  2. An orderly home, an orderly life. There is MUCH work to be done, but it is up to me.

    Ooooh! I love this. Maybe I'll make it my new mantra.

    Visiting from Simple Woman

  3. I am feeling the need to get orderly in my home and life. One of the things I've owned up to recently is that many of my problems have their roots in my own disorganization. :( I hope to concentrate on it more after my Spiritual Formation class wraps up at the beginning of December.

    The Simple Woman's Daybook is such a treat to reflect on...I haven't done it in a while, though. Another thing to get on. :)

    Happy & Blessed Tuesday, Cheryl!

  4. I enjoyed reading your Simple Woman's Daybook and hope to join in when life calms down. I am behind on posting, went back to work plus start a new Bible class tomorrow, sewing..on and on! I better make another goal to manage time better!
