The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, December 11, 2012...
Outside my window...the bright sunshine is still there, though only for another hour or so. By 5:30pm it's just about gone.
I am thinking...of my daughter, and the trials she faces everyday working in a children's home.
I am thankful for...a pantry filled with food, and a home filled with love.
I am going...to my son's school at 5pm to purchase uniform shirts. He's grown so much this year I can hardly keep up.
I am wearing...a mint green top, green/brown/black geometric designed skirt, and black flip-flops. It's a balmy 83 degrees out, with high humidity and dew points. I miss last month's weather.
I am noticing...fewer homes decorated for Christmas this year. However, the stores are more packed than usual. I guess everyone's using their money for gifts, not decor.
In the kitchen...fried tilapia, plantains, rice medley (which my daughter said was really good), and a salad. Oh, and broccoli.
I am creating...well, not yet, but I'll be creating some scrapbook pages for my son's scrapbook soon.
I am reading...very little lately. I'm running around a lot.
I am hoping...the temps start to drop into the low 70s again. It doesn't feel like Christmas when it's this humid out.
I am looking forward to...my birthday celebration on Thursday, and my actual birthday on Friday.
I am hearing...a video game my son is playing. He plays to wind down after a hard day of learning ;).
Around the house...I was able to get some dusting and vacuuming done, plus one load of laundry.
A favorite quote of the day..."How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!" - Benjamin Franklin.
One of my favorite things...saving money! I saved a bunch this weekend when I went to Kohl's to buy my son new school pants. It was great!
A few plans for the rest of the week...my birthday luncheon on Thursday, my actual birthday on Friday, and Friday night is our church's Christmas concert. What a way to spend my birthday, listening to Christmas carols! I love it!
