The Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY NOVEMBER 3, 2008
Outside my window...is rain, rain, rain. It's cold and dark again today. The Fall leaves are amazing though...bright yellow and red. Half of the trees are bare already.
I am thinking...about Thanksgiving coming up and what I want to cook for the big day. We will be staying home for the first time ever. I'll cook a yummy turkey dinner and watch movies and play games....and eat yummy pie too.
I am thankful... that Cam is home today. The babies have terrible colds and coughs. It's so nice to have his help with the kiddos...and a friend to spend the day with.
From the kitchen...the Halloween candy is calling my name...oh, Becky...come eat me! I have no idea what's for dinner yet...maybe a pot roast and potatoes...or soup and biscuits?
I am wearing...my pj's of course. Green t-shirt and pink and green plaid pj bottoms...and bare feet.
I am creating...a thankful art project for the boys. We are going to make a list of things we are thankful for over the next few weeks and put it up on the wall or window. Last year we made a Fall tree and each leaf had a "thankful" item written on it. Maybe I'll do the same thing...or any ideas from you would be welcome...leave ideas in the comments section.
I am going...nowhere today. Besides sick babies, and Mr. P home from school sick...I'm sick too. Bad sore throat and headache. I'm happy to spend the day at home getting everyone well...or at least keeping us comfy.
I am reading...my Book Club selection should be coming from Amazon today and I would love to get started on it.
I am hoping...the cold virus in our house goes away quickly and doesn't spread any further.
I am hearing...the bathroom fan that someone left on...the boys watching Playhouse Disney...and the clicking of the keyboard.
Around the house...one baby is sleeping in her crib, one baby is sitting in his bouncy seat looking at me..."hi baby boy", and two boys and a kitty are snuggled on the couch watching TV.
One of my favorite things...is my new washer and dryer!!!! I am am amazed at how much laundry it can hold. I am doing so many less loads per day. It is also so fun to watch. Tuba and Sis love to sit in the laundry room and watch it go. The green lighted diplay looks like a UFO and makes the room glow.
A few plans for the rest of the week...I need to take something to the frame shop, and I hope we are all well enough to go to the library on Friday. Our annual church auction is coming this weekend and I'm putting together an Ethiopian basket. I've got all the items now so I just need to assemble it.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Tune in tomorrow to see what this is. If you want to guess...leave it in the comment section.
