The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, November 6, 2012...

Outside my window...it's overcast and humid.  A cold front is coming through tonight, which means humidity will be up a bit and we might get some rain before the evening.

I am thinking...of the election, and who will win.  I know one thing for sure:  no matter what the outcome, God is in control.

I am thankful for...the honor and privilege of voting for the candidate that best reflects my own values.

I am going...to vote today!  Just waiting for mid-morning when, hopefully, there will be a shorter line.

I am wearing...a mint green top, green skirt, and flip-flops.  It's 74 degrees out, comfortable even though it's a bit humid.

I am noticing...the night light that's still on.  I need to turn that off.

In the kitchen...easy chicken and stuffing in the crock pot.

I am creating...a stash of Christmas presents in my closet.  No peeking!

I am reading...still on Unglued by Lysa TerKeurst.  I'm reading it as a study so I'm taking my time.

I am hoping...I can find some jeans for my son who is growing faster than I can keep up.

I am looking forward to...the end of the elections, which means no more political ads!  They make me sick!

I am hearing...my son playing a video game and my daughter practicing on her guitar.

Around the house...everything is in pretty good order.

A favorite quote of the day...“In short, ours is a peculiar country with a unique history.  What is best in America can be traced back to our Judeo-Christian heritage.  What is problematic in our nation is our departure from that heritage.”- Dr. David Gibbs Jr. (from the book “One Nation Under God”).

One of my favorite things...crock pot cooking.  Whoever invented the crock pot, Thank you!!

A few plans for the rest of the week...voting today, Awana tomorrow, and that's all that's planned right now.

Wanna join in the fun?  Visit Peggy at the Simple Woman's Daybook.  God bless.

Do you ever wonder why political ads are so negative? Beating down the opponent...is that the way to get ahead? What is it with the western culture now that promotes this? Just my thought.

I'm an American/Canadian in Canada, so have been following this election with some interest, and lots of frustration. But God is in control.

I enjoyed your daybook entry.
