The Simple Woman's Daybook 11-09

FOR TODAY 2009-11-08

Outside my window... It's cold and still no snow. I am not sure which I'd prefer, warmer weather with snow or cold weather with no snow. Hmmmm?

I am thinking...about the holidays. Trying t make some decisions.

I am thankful...for friends. I am this need to unite people. It isn't as easy as it may seem. People are guarded, including me. I am thankful for the few true friends I have and so grateful for the friends I am making on a daily basis.

From the learning rooms...well Cali is working on holiday projects. She is very interested in learning phonics at the moment. She is doing well and I am certain she will be well ahead of where she needs to be by the start of Kindergarten next year.

From the kitchen...I need a good pumpkin recipe. I am having a challenge with Grandpa. Got any ideas???

I am wearing...still in my pj's. I am catching up on computer stuff since I finally got mine back. I need to get moving though.

I am creating...still working on moving things around for Christmas. I need a bigger house or a smaller Christmas tree.

I am going...nowhere. And that is a good thing.

I am reading...not reading. Perusing catalogs. Dangerous!

I am hoping...that my best friend Kelly will change her mind a find a way to come visit soon.

I am hearing...Max and Ruby. They drive me a little crazy. (It's a nick jr. TV show.)

Around the house...still recovering from a house full of tween girls this weekend. I survived!

One of my favorite happy girls.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Cali's first cheer competition is this coming weekend. And Cassi is participating in individuals. Fingers crossed, they are confident and do well.

The mission of our family and home.

Your girls are beautiful. I too have to rearrange things to put up a tree. Then everything goes so fast it's time for it to come down. I love anything made with pumpkin. I hope you find a good recipe. Have a blessed week, Doylene
