The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY November 10, 2008...



Outside my window...it is storming to beat the band.  I am loving it because I am inside warm and dry and our lake levels are slowly going down.  God is so merciful to send the rain our way.


I am thinking...believe it or not about a garden next year.  I know next to nothing about gardening, so I've been doing some research and planning so that I can be ready.  Nothing in the world like homegrown tomatoes.


I am thankful for...my family and friends.  I have so many wonderful people in my life.  And Saturday night I talked to my cousin on the phone for one and a half hours!  Oh the talking and laughing we did.  =)


From the learning rooms...needing to go in there and finish reading a chapter and get some homework turned in, but it's much more fun to post on my blog and go and visit others.  ~ sigh ~


From the kitchen...many a chocolate chip cookie was made yesterday as I baked for the troops.  I got them mailed today and Keith and I have decided this will be an ongoing monthly event in our household.


I am wearing...jeans, t-shirt, hoodie and....socks and tennies!  It's just a little too cool for my flip flops right now.


I am creating...I pulled my socks back out and am knitting on them again.  Sock knitting is probably my favorite.  I have also begun my quilted Christmas tree skirt!


I am going...to bed very soon!  Tired today and hearing the rain makes me want to snuggle into my covers.


I am reading...school book right now.  Will begin another novel after I finish a chapter of school work - kind of a reward I suppose.


I am hoping...that a funny new "weight loss" program will work for me.  I just am not motivated right now to join WW again, even though I know it works very well.  But a group of friends and I started today taking a picture of everything we eat.  Everything.  And each day we will share the photos from the day before.  Really this should work along the same lines as WW as it's all based on accountability.  Might sound silly, but when I got the email from a friend asking me to join them I was intrigued.


I am hearing...the wonderful soothing sound of rain, along with the a large clap of thunder every now and then.  The cat ran under the bed when the first thunder shook our house.


Around the house...I need to dust!  Funny how that just sort of sneaks up on you!


One of my favorite things...is watching Keith play with the Wii.  He laughs and will play the same thing over and over and over until he is satisfied with his score.


A few plans for the rest of the week:  Let's see....Thursday night is knitting guild, Friday night is stamp club and then IHOP for dinner!  It should be a good week.  =)


Here is picture thought I am sharing...

These are the cupcakes that Loni made for a recent work potluck.  Aren't they darling?

I agree that accountability is really helpful in weight loss. I am just starting a weight loss program too. Good luck to you!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
