Monday Daybook


FOR TODAY, October 22, 2012

Outside my window...I'm writing this late in the day and it's the 'golden hour' when the sun is low in the sky.  The sounds of the neighborhood include kids playing and lawn mowers going.

I am thinking...about the nice weekend we had.  I will share some pictures as soon as I figure out how to get them from the camera to the computer.  I'm slow learning about the Mac vs. my good ole PC.


I am thankful...that I found a new groomer for our dog who does a great job and is a bargain to boot!


In the kitchen...pork roast, mashed potatoes, green beans and rolls.


I am creating...menu plans.


I am going...to figure out the Mac, come hell or high water.


I am wondering...if Barrack or Mitt get a bazillion political phone calls interrupting their dinner?


I am reading..."Helen of Troy", by Margaret George.


I am hoping...for another nice week of fall weather, before the snow sets in.


I am looking forward to...my friend, Pamela, coming to visit this Friday!


Around the house...fall candles, pumpkins, and autumn colors.


I am pondering...lessons in "Abundant Simplicity" by Jan Johnson.


A favorite quote for today...(from "Abundant Simplicity) . . "Practicing frugality reinforces intentionality, prodding us to continually ask ourselves, What do I want? and What do I really need? Our heart also gets cleaned out, a process that creates the opportunity for many inward conversations with God."


Some of my favorite things...unique postage stamps, solving a math problem, finishing a crossword  puzzle.


A peek into my day. . .

Your dinner sounds lovely! Good luck with the Mac. I had one for a while, and it drove me crazy. I'm more comfortable with my PC.

Sounds of the neighborhood around here are shovels scraping! The snow hit tonight!

My brain would just ache if I had to figure out a Mac. I am so not good with technology. It's been a year and I've yet to update my phone.
