A Daybook



FOR TODAY, November 7, 2011

Outside my window...it's a sunny day, but snow is on the way!

I am thinking...that today is my aunt's birthday  She blesses my life in so many ways.  We're having a party at my brother's house later today.

I am thankful...for friends and family who stand by me through thick and thin.  They're the best.

In the kitchen...my menus are set for the week, I went grocery shopping yesterday.  I'm set for the week.  Feels good.

I am wearing...sweats -- cleaning house today.

I am creating...a quilt.

I am going...nowhere until 4:00 today!  Gotta love days like this.

I am wondering...how much snow we'll get?  Supposedly just a couple inches.

I am reading... The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley

I am hoping...for a calm week.

I am looking forward to...the holidays.  It's all I can do not to set up the Christmas village right now.

I am hearing...Matt Lauer in Namibia

Around the house... The usual shrapnel from a busy weekend.

I am pondering...life in Namibia.  I would love the simpler lifestyle, but not sure I could handle all that sand.

One of my favorite things...fabric stores.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .a quiet week ahead, so I'll have no excuses not to get some projects done.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...from Auntie Ann's birthday six years ago.  The kids have all grown up so much since then!  But Auntie Ann looks exactly the same.  So glad I have her genes:)

It's always fun to look at pictures from previous years and see the change in the kids.

Have a great "quiet" week.
