The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Nov 22 08...
Outside my window... a fat squirrel with some food in his mouth
I am thinking... about the chilly fall weather
I am thankful for... my brother being here to see my Mom
From the kitchen... the smell of 3 beautiful loaves of bread and 1 raisin bread and a gingerbread bar
I am wearing... warm black jeans and my "Real Women Quilt" tshirt
I am creating... victorian embroidered boots for swaps
I am going... to go take a nap... up early to take care of Mom
I am reading... Simple Abundance
I am hoping... for continued grace to care for Mom
I am hearing... NCIS on Mom's TV and the hum of the heater
Around the house... it is pretty quiet. My dh and dd10 are at a soccer tournament today.
One of my favorite things... baking. I love the satisfaction of making healthy bread that's soft and tastes so good!
A few plans for the rest of the week: One day at a time, Sweet Jesus. That's all I'm asking of you.
Here is picture thought I am sharing... a tea set I got for Erin for Christmas if I can wait that long! I'm excited to give it to her. She's always loved fixing tea parties for us and her little plastic princess tea set was way too small to have fun with. It was great when she was 3, but now it's time for a more grown-up tea set and I can't wait to have tea parties with her using this one. It's truly beautiful and an Ebay find. I had her pick out fabric to make a little table runner and napkins to use with it, too.
