Simple Woman's Daybook

For today, Tuesday October 28, 2008

Outside my window... It is cold! 36° to be exact. The sun isn't quite up, I hear a dump truck driving past on the road.

I am thinking... I've been thinking about this upcoming election lately, and that I've heard alot of people saying they aren't going to vote. It makes me sad because each person that doesn't vote is just giving a vote to "the worser" guy.

I am thankful for... Freedom. Freedom to vote, freedom to make decisions about where I want to shop, get medical help, go to church, worship, buy gas, live, marry ('though I've already made that one, I'm glad I was able to decide on my own), and the list goes on and on.

From the kitchen... I have a thawing pork roast on the counter that I will put in the crockpot this morning for tonight's supper. Dirty dishes from cooking supper last night need dealt with. The "catchall" place on the counter is getting deep! I love my candle! Somehow burning a candle makes it "look" warmer :)

I am wearing... My pink bathrobe and pink slippers.

I am going... Maybe to the chiropractor today.

I am reading... I saw several books in the CBD magazine last night that I'd love to be reading!

I am hoping... that we can make great progress on the home project this week. We made some last night!! Yay :)

I am creating... (this is lame) a blog post so my readers don't wonder what happened to me.

I am hearing... Well, nothing. I will probably turn on the radio or a Christmas CD later on. (Yes, I'm one of those. Actually, I enjoy listening to Christmas music year-round. Sometimes when it's blazing hot outside, I'll turn on a CD just to at least "think" cooler!)

Around the house... Furniture is disheveled in the living room again since we moved the dining room table to work in the dining room. My dresser is piled high - I need to do some serious work on my clothes and get rid of what I don't wear so everything fits easier in the drawers! Mostly the bulky sweater/winter stuff.

One of my favorite things... visual progress.

A few plans for the rest of the week... A fall picnic this Saturday! Get more done on the house. Daily chores.

A picture thought I am sharing with you... from July '07 vacation.

I like what you said about 'visual progress' that's me! I like vacuuming and mowing the lawn for that very reason. I can SEE things changing.

oh, and it helps work off the cookies I just ate.

Enjoy your visual progress!

I really liked that picture, it is lovely!

From Aliisa:

You know, there is nothing worse that working all day to find that yes while you did make progress, your house is still a mess!! Makes me feel like I made no progress at all. So Im with you, I like visual progress!! I think most of us do.

I feel the same way about voting. I don't care who anyone else is voting for as long as they vote for someone! I mean, if you don't vote, you don't have a right to complain later... right? :)
