The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ November 1

Welcome to a new month! I love the coming of November ~ I can just feel the holidays (Thanksgiving included) coming right around the corner – November 1st always brings a feeling of excitement to my heart. I’m glad you stopped by to visit and here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .cloudy and calm with a high in the low 70’s today – a nice day, even though I miss the sun shining – oh, here it comes out now – yay!
I am thinking. . .about my to-do list.
From the learning room. . .continuing studies in the “Pumpkin Runner” with the littles, and the skeletal system with the olders.
I am thankful for. . .my sweet daughter Anna, who is turning 7 this week.
From the kitchen. . .Breakfast skillet with eggs, bacon, potatoes, vegies, and cheese for dinner tonight; along with blueberry muffins on the side.
I am wearing. . .navy shirt and capris.
I am creating. . .quilting when I can find the time – whichever quilt suits my fancy at the time.
I am going. . .to be picking up Toy Story 3 tomorrow, which means a special movie night for the family!
I am reading. . .“Quilt Blocks on American Barns” and the new “Home Educating Family” magazine that came in the mail the other day.
I am hoping. . .that the Rangers will pull out a win tonight – they need to!
I am hearing. . .children playing, water running, and kitty bells jingling.
Around the house. . .lots of candy (and wrappers) from the Fall Festival last night; Jeff working from home today; much laundry to tackle and a house to clean.
One of my favorite things. . .I said it above – November 1st!
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .another busy week – ballet, ice skating, library, sign-ups for basketball and cheerleading for Michael and Anna, celebrating Anna’s birthday, Tommy’s first ice skating competition, and visiting with Jeff’s Dad who is in town for the week.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .
