The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ November 23

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .a foggy morning with the promise of sunshine later on today.
I am thinking. . .about my blessings.
From the learning room. . .no lessons this week – enjoying a week off!
I am thankful for. . .my family, faith, and friendships.
From the kitchen. . .pumpkin harvest bread for breakfast this morning; Smothered Chicken for dinner tonight with tossed salad and watermelon.
I am wearing. . .navy t-shirt and blue jeans.
I am creating. . .getting started making our Christmas cards.
I am going. . .to try to get the birdfeeders filled up this week – a long overdue treat for my feathered friends.
I am reading. . .“Christmas in the Big Woods” (Laura Ingalls Wilder) with Anna – one of my favorites.
I am hoping. . .that the nice weather holds out a little while longer for our daily walks.
I am hearing. . .girls chatting while dressing dolls, “Grinch” (Jim Carrey) dvd on tv, Tommy singing Christmas carols.
Around the house. . .the Christmas boxes are down from the attic and are sitting around the living room, already sending forth some of their contents (many excited children, as well!). I hope to get a lot of decorating done this week – I am determined to get it done quickly this year, so that the boxes can get back into the attic earlier than the two weeks that they usually sit around!
One of my favorite things. . .24 hour Christmas music on the radio throughout the season.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .decorating, baking, Thanksgiving dinner with my family, the annual Dickens festival with Jeff next weekend (so excited!).
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .
