Simple Woman's Daybook...

November 16, 2009

Outside my window...Dark and cold.  It's almost bedtime as I'm typing this.
I am thinking... about how long it has been since I've posted!  Billy has been prodding me daily to "post something new", and a friend posted an FYI on Facebook today that I hadn't posted since October 29.  Eeek!   Brain fog has hit hard the past few weeks, and I've actually started a few posts that are still in draft. :-/
I am thankful for... mild weather!  It's been so wonderful to make it until the middle of November without needing heat!
From the learning rooms... Barebones basics right now, although we'll be doing some Thanksgiving *stuff* later this week and the first of next.
From the kitchen... Billy's been doing a lot of cooking lately, which has been such a blessing.   He is a great cook, he loves it, and it's always an adventure when he is in the kitchen! :)
I am wearing.... Razorback sweats...the house has gotten pretty chilly this evening.
I am creating... I finally made a new blog header this morning.  I'm still not terribly happy with it, but at least I got *last* Thanksgiving's photos down before this Thanksgiving!  Hopefully I'll have time to tweak it (or overhaul it completely) soon. :)
I am going... to be practicing piano like a madwoman in the next few weeks.  Our children's choir musical is coming up *way* too fast, and I've got lots of work to do. :)
I am reading... The Year of Living Like Jesus, for a book review.  Interesting reading so far.
I am hearing... Billy on the phone with his dad (he paces when he talks...and he keeps trekking through the dining room, where I am :)), and children getting ready for bed.
Around the house... Trying to figure out where in the world we are going to put a Christmas tree in the living room this year. I've got some serious re-arranging to do in there!
One of my favorite things... Seeing my children's excitement and generosity as they get ready for Christmas.  (They are almost finished with their gifts...I haven't started on mine! )
A few plans for the rest of the week:  Choir x2 on Wednesday,  the girls' GA Thanksgiving Dinner on Saturday,  Thanksgiving Dinner at church on Sunday, and a trip to the library at some point.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...  We did a little photo shoot out at the National Historic Site on Saturday.  Hopefully I'll get the rest uploaded soon. :)

That is great that your husband encourages you to blog. :) I also need to do some rearranging if we're going to fit the tree in our living room this year!
