The Simple Woman's Daybook

My first time to join in! I keep seeing this on blogs everywhere and just love the little glimpse into the daily lives of these ladies and I hope you'll enjoy it as well.



For today...

Outside my window...a beautiful, perfect fall day complete with a breeze with just a hint of cool in it.
I am thinking...about the election tomorrow. I've read much and prayed even more and mostly I'm just wanting for me to be able to honestly say from the heart "Thy will be done" when it is over.
From the learning rooms...I need to turn in a chapter assignment and get a unit test completed by the end of the week. Have I mentioned that I'm taking an online college course this semester - my first in 23 years?
I am thankful for...an amazing husband. He does so much for me to show his love and sometimes I get giddy as a school girl thinking of him. Seriously.
From the kitchen...We had really, really good grilled hamburgers yesterday when the family was over, so we are having leftovers for dinner tonight. We are trying to be better stewards of all that God has blessed us with.
I am wearing...my usual work at home clothes - capris, t-shirt and Crocs flip flops. :)
I am reading...Out of Her Hands by Megan DiMaria, which will be reviewed on my blog later this week.
I am hoping...that I will be able to get all the crafts done that I am planning for the near future!
I am creating...an oddball pet snuggle. These are similar to the baby blanket I posted a bit ago where several of us knit part of a blanket. The pet snuggles are donated to local animal shelters to line the cages.
I am hearing...my golden retriever play with his squeaky toy - over and over and over that thing is squeaking, so he is obviously having a grand time!
Around the house...I am slowly but surely getting some decluttering done. I'm hoping to get the office/scrapbook room done before the holidays set in and I've made tremendous progress.
One of my favorite things...is sitting on the couch with Keith and watching a movie together. And while watching a movie I've always go handwork as I can't sit still that long without something to do.
A few plans for the rest of the week...dinner with some friends, more organizing (will it ever be finished?), scrapbooking Friday night with friends and hopefully several trips to the park with the husband and dog.
Here is a picture thought I'm sharing with you...



My birthday cake!

I have enjoyed looking at your blog! I really like you have a verse or quote at the end of every post. Really neat idea. =]

I'm so glad you joined this Simple Woman meme; I love reading these and keep saying that I'm going to do it one of these days...

And FYI; no, the organizing is NEVER done LOL

I am so happy that you jumped on the Daybook bandwagon! :-)

So, does the birthday cake mean it's your birthday? :-o If so, happy 47th birthday (unless I miscounted those pesky candles)!

Your blog is so aptly named, for you always seem to be joyous, even on a Monday. ;-)

That's so neat that you're taking a college course. I've tossed the idea around a bit myself, just not sure if the old noggin's up to it.

Hope you have a blessed day today, and I too am praying about the elections today.........

Happy Birthday! I tried counting the candles, but there are too many. :)

Happy birthday! The cake looks so good.

Now you've inspired me to get my own office/scrapbook room organized. At least, someone is in the same boat as I am!

Many sweet blessings!
