The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, November 16, 2010...

Outside my window...the sun is shining brightly, there's a cool breeze but not cold. Temperatures have been a bit weird lately; some days cool and fall like, other days really toasty warm. I hope it stabilizes soon.

I am thinking...about our Thanksgiving menu and what still needs to be bought.

I am thankful...my God never leaves me nor forsakes me.

I am going...to call my hairdresser today. My ends are dry and need cutting.

I am wearing...a yellow short sleeved hoodie, jean bermuda shorts, and flip-flops. In mid-November. It's strange even to me.

I am noticing...a calm and peace in my heart. Thanks, Lord.

I am currently...done wrapping all the presents I've bought, but I still need to catch up on purchases. Looking for sales everywhere I go.

I am reading...Ephesians for morning devotions, and still working on an Agatha Christie mystery.

I am waiting...to hear from the Lord.

On my mind...my daughter will be coming home next week for Thanksgiving (yay!) and then the decorating starts.

From the learning rooms...lots of math lately. Word problems mostly.

I am pondering these words..."Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life." - Proverbs 13:12. Such a beautiful verse.

Around the house...2 loads of laundry still need to be folded, and bathrooms need cleaning.

One of my favorite things...spending time with my children.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Thursday is the Cub Scouts Thanksgiving feast. We're looking forward to that.

Here's a picture thought I'm sharing...I found this ornament at Target and had to get it for my son R. The reindeer is sitting on a game console, so of course I put it on top of his XBox 360. He got a kick out of it!
