|From The Simple Woman's Daybook|
I was thinking this morning of The Simple Woman's Daybook. I haven't done one of these for the longest time. I used to get such a blessing from writing one and from reading the entries of other bloggers, too. So without further delay; here is my entry for today:
Outside my window... a dusky sky, changing colors of leaves on the mountains and a few birds on the telephone wires in front of our house.
I am thinking... about this time last year and taking my mom for all of her appointments. We used to go out to lunch afterward and then maybe take a drive around some of her favorite old places. I am really missing her, dearly.
I am thankful... my new found interest in being creative again
I am wearing... my favorite comfy jammies
I am creating... wreaths, flower arrangements and learning crochet
I am going... to start teaching Caleb Macbeth today
I am wondering... if I will ever get this house truly organized again-lol
I am reading... very little right now, magazines mostly
I am hoping... to get the outside of our house and the porch furniture sprayed off for the fall this weekend. It always seems so good to get that done; makes everything feel so fresh.
I am learning... basic crochet stitches.
Around the house... I still have a LOT of my mom's things sitting around; no more room in closets and no where to sit them for now. I must start sorting out what stays and what goes, but it is a hard decision to make. My children have taken some things and my brother, too but she had so many pretty things!
In the kitchen... meat loaf for supper
I am pondering... the things we talked about at my Women's Bible Study yesterday
A favorite quote for today... October gave a party;The leaves by hundreds came,—
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....
~George Cooper, "October’s Party"
One of my favorite things... the smell of smoke in the air from the neighbor's fireplace on cool mornings, all things pumpkin, spice candles and candy corn
A few plans for this week: the WV Pumpkin Festival at Milton, WV
A peek into one of my days...
