Simple Woman's Daybook

For today, Monday October 20, 2008

Outside my window... It is pretty chilly - it was 36° this morning at 7:30. The sun is just about all the way up, it looks so pretty shining through the fall colored trees!!

I am thinking... that my oatmeal & raisins breakfast was really yummy and warm.

I am thankful for... starting to feel better with my cold - and that we turned on the heat last night - set on the high temperature of 61°!!

From the kitchen... I have a candle burning to at least make it look warmer, and that's where I'll be focusing my cleaning today, and it needs it!

I am wearing... gray pants and a white turtleneck (I'll be wearing several more layers once I do my exercising and shower!!)

I am going... to town today (check back later or tomorrow for the results)

I am reading... besides the Bible, zilch, zip, nada

I am hoping... that I will stick to my (re-)new(ed) goal to stay on top of my to-do list and not get distracted with things like blog reading...

I am creating... ha ha, my creative side hasn't kicked in yet today - but I do need to make bread if that counts.

I am hearing... ahhh, quiet:) (I bet some of you moms out there are wishing for the same... I keep telling myself that I won't always have "quiet" to "hear")

Around the house... some things need picked up or put away here and there

One of my favorite things... BLOGGING!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week... finish a project and hopefully get started on another one!!

A picture thought I am sharing with you... take a look out the window at God's beautiful creation!

Oh, so sorry you've been sick. I love your picture thought...isn't it amazing what we see when we look.

Up here in our great northland of Clover Hill, we had 28 on the thermometer on our back porch at 8:00. I forgot to look at it when I got up, so I don't know if it was colder earlier or not. I haven't yet turned on the furnace. It wasn't down to 60 yet this morning, and the sun made the inside of our house get up to 70 today. I am finally not hot!

Awwww, enjoy some blogs. It's not all about "getting there", but enjoying the journey!

Glad you are feeling better. I laughed at your comment on my blog- just this morning I was thinking that you hadn't commented on my meme and wondered if I had offended you with some of my cheeky answers. Glad to know that I didn't scare you away!
