The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, October 6, 2008

Outside my window... Trees are starting to turn, it's a little cloudy but the sun is trying to shine.

I am thinking... about what all I am going to do today.

I am thankful for... A new day.

From the kitchen... The dishwasher needs unloaded, bread needs made.

I am wearing... (sheepish grin) my pink bathrobe.

I am going... maybe to the grocery store, but I might wait until tomorrow.

I am reading... nothing right now.

I am hoping... for a nice, normal week, to get lots done.

I am creating... need to finish the cookbook I am putting together.

I am hearing... Quiet, except for the computer fan.

Around the house... Pepsi and Dr. Pepper wait to be put away, Laundry waits to be started.

One of my favorite things... Being able to stay at home.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Grocery shop for 2 weeks, make pear-butter, ask the neighbors if I can have some of their apples (need lots of courage!).

A picture thought I am sharing with you...

Miriam,

Are you making bread in this picture?

Looks neat.

Yes:) But this is an older picture - I haven't started the bread yet today. I need to share my recipes and tips with you since you're learning to make bread :) It is really easy once you get the hang of it.

Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on my blog! Seems like we have a mutual bloggy friend in Gayle!

I am really intrigued by your cookbook idea. Do tell! I might just be late to the party, but now I'm interested.

From Aliisa:

I love the cookbook idea. I have several empty ones here that I got on clearance. I usually put one together for wedding presents. Although I do have one I made for myself.

Emily,
The cookbook I'm putting together is a simple ring-binder and notebook paper with hand-copied recipes:) I'm doing it to give to another Emily as a gift. Credit largely goes to one of my sisters for compiling a collection of our family favorite recipes from "growing up", and I'm adding in a LOT of recipes that I've added to my own collection since being married.

I'm sure I will blog about it with pictures when I get it completed :)
