A Daybook Entry- Nov. 24 entry


Each Monday I plan to join with Peggy from the The Simple Woman and many others who are celebrating the joy of simplicity. Here's a peek into my life right now...

FOR TODAY (November 24, 2008)...

Outside my window...
the eastern sky is brightening... doves are already gathering under the bird feeders. The skeleton trees are silhouetted against a baby blue sky.

I am thinking...of plans for a busy and fun week. Josiah turns 8 today! I can't believe our little preemie baby is so big and healthy now. Lots of cooking and baking to do this week~ fun!

I am thankful for... Micah and Joshua are going to be in town for a few days~ they will be here for Josiah's birthday party! So grateful for a large family to cook for and serve in other ways too.

From the kitchen...a gluten free birthday cake, plus pre-Thanksgiving baking too.

I am wearing...floral overalls, white mock turtleneck, white tennies.

I am creating...mostly food this week... but plans for Christmas crafts for the children, several sewing projects.

I am going... to the library and to Nature's Pantry to pick up a bulk food order, then home for the rest of the week~ hooray!

I am reading...James, contemplating faith and works...

I am hoping... to check lots of things off of my to-do list this week as we take a week off of school.

I am hearing... George Winston "December" playing, little boys discussing their plans for the day, the drier making little rhythmic "clinks" as a load of the boys jeans dry.

Around the house...cozy, homey, winter plans. I *love* this time of year~ woodburning stove warmth, soups simmering on the stove, secret plans for gifts afoot!

One of my favorite things...a snuggly little boy sitting on my lap, still nestled in his blanket sleeper and not fully awake yet.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Thanksgiving baking and delightful family together time.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... a shot of one of my kitchen sinks... bountifully full of freshly washed eggs and a 15 bean mix for soup ready to be rinsed.
