The Simple Woman's Daybook



FOR TODAY: October 25, 2011


Outside my window...
The sun is shining and the skies are clear blue! Simply a beautiful autumn afternoon!!! The temperature is in the 70s and the trees have some color still on them. There is a Maple tree on the next street that looks like a picture out of a travel guide with bright red and some yellow and a few green leaves left. Just GORGEOUS!
I am thinking...
that it is good to feel like writing again. I went through quite a dry spell this time, I was getting a bit concerned about whether or not I would ever start wanting to write again. So glad that God answered my prayer and gave me the desire to share my thoughts again.

I am thankful...
for this wonderful, beautiful time of the year and for all of the many blessings my Lord has given to me in my life. I am especially thankful for my family, our home, my sweet friends, and the dear brothers and sisters we have at our church.
I went to my weekly women's Bible study this morning and had the sweetest time in fellowship with those dear sisters in the Lord. I started attending last fall and couldn't wait to get back to the group after our summer break. I love to learn more about God's word and to stay after for lunch and just to have time to talk to the ladies about what they have been doing since our last visit. We all take turns at fixing items for the lunch and we have some pretty good cooks, too! Today we had soup and sandwiches. Next week we are having spaghetti and salads. The book that we are using for our study is called, "Becoming a Vessel God Can Use" and is written by Donna Partow. It is a wonderful study about the men and women of the Bible that could be considered "unlikely vessels" and how the Lord used them for His glory and purpose. I am really enjoying this study.

From the learning rooms...
Caleb and I are working on drawings of DNA, plant cells and animal cells. We are still working on our study of the 1950s and for math he is working on problems involving percentages.

In the kitchen...
There is a BIG beef roast with vegetables slowly roasting in the crock pot~MMmmmm! Just the right dinner for a cool fall evening. It is supposed to cool into the upper 40s by tonight.
I am wearing...
a pretty blue floral pullover shirt and my favorite pair of slacks. I am still dressed from Bible study this morning.

I am creating...
this blog post and happy memories for my family at home. I am thinking about going out on the front porch to rock a bit with Caleb in a bit. He is busy drawing some of his action characters right now. I love our life here at the cottage! I am thinking about making some embroidered felt ornaments for our Christmas tree and to give as gifts to friends.

I am going...
to my momma's tomorrow to take her for her weekly shopping trip. She was in the most wonderful mood today; laughing and talking about sweet memories of when she was a child. She was also happy that her next door neighbor had come over yesterday to help her with some fall chores around her house. She has wonderful neighbors and friends!
I am wondering...
what I might get into this coming week-end. I have several things that I need to be working on, but not sure where to start. Time will tell...
I am reading...
Becoming a Vessel God Can Use by Donna Partow and My Heart's in the Lowlands by Liz Curtis Higgs
I am hoping...
that my family will stay healthy this coming winter and no one will have to deal with any major illnesses. I would also love to see my children start thinking about returning to attending church services. Praying deeply over each of them~they are all so dear to me.
I am looking forward to...
a peaceful evening with my hubby and my son. Evenings are always the sweetest time of the day to me.
I am hearing...
my son's video game music, the sound of water running and my old computer humming along.
One of my favorite things...
The smell of smoke from a neighbor's fireplace on cool fall evenings~ahhh!

 Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Outside our town library only 2 weeks ago!

I hope that you will have a blessed week ahead. I would also like to thank Peggy for hosting this Daybook. It is always a blessing to me and a fun way to catch up with friends about what is going on in your day. If you would like to add a Daybook post to your blog, go to The Simple Woman's Daybook.
