Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...


Outside my Window...
It is bitter cold here. We had a bunch of snow this weekend on and off. It is supposed to make it to the 40's today. Yippeee! They are calling for a mid week snow "event". I always chuckle when they call it that. It means they really aren't sure what it will be...snow, rain, freezing rain.


I am thinking...
How much the Lord provides for us. My Husband has a pretty good job, where he works there is always a need for the supplies he makes. There were 3 prayer requests in Church yesterday for Husbands loosing their jobs as of January. My prayers and my heart goes out to them.


I am thankful for...
Our new Church family. We have started getting to know a lot of families. The children have made many friends, many of whom are also homeschooled. They will be getting together with them through out the winter. We do not live too far away from them.


From the Learning Room…
We are going to be finishing up our Thanksgiving Unit. We are also going to be putting our lapbooks together. We have made small books on each subject/book we read.


From the kitchen...
Meatloaf for supper, pumpernickel bread, squash and corn pudding for Thanksgiving.


I am wearing...
Warm clothing!


I am reading...
The notes from Sunday night Bible study on Inductive Method of Bible study. I have really enjoyed this study. In just 2 weeks I have started getting much more from God in my daily time with him.


I am praying...
For safe travels to my Grandmother's house for Thanksgiving. Also, for a wonderful time with family.


I am hearing...
The children starting to get their breakfast around. My son watching his science show.


Around the house...
Many projects, I'm trying to finish up my Grandmother's Christmas present so we will be able to take them down with us. I'm working on "thinning" out our stuff so the house will be nice and clean after my surgery. I almost feel as if I'm "nesting". LOL


One of my favorite things...
The laughter of my Children, warm embrace of my Husband.


A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...
Cleaning, schooling, baking, traveling, crafting, scrapbooking, birthday party for my nephew, pizza party for our daughter to attend, Tuesday night service at Church instead of Wednesday.


Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
At our ladies' craft day we learned basic decorative painting. I really enjoyed it so I found an mayo jar and painted it up with a winter scene. I then place a string of white lights inside. When it is dark we turn it on and it lights up the snowman and the area around him, which I put glitter on the paint.

Snow? Make it to the 40's? We are getting down to the 40's at night but 50-60's in the day with no sight of snow. Thanks for visiting my daybook. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

You can also make your own dried Potpourri in your food dehydrator and when it is finished put it in with the lights sprinkle it lightly with water and poke holes in the lid and voile you have a VERY inexpensive nice smelling seasonal decoration...It may be nice to have that when you wish you could me baking after your surgery....Orange peals and cinnamon work really well...those you need cinnamon sticks!

The weathermen get bored I think, so they love winter when they can predict "events." It doesn't matter if the event comes off or not. They always tell us we're having "events," but we only realy get one or two a year.

Speaking of events...the one that occurred last night..Did I miss something on the news or what Jenny they Weren't calling for Anything BUT rain and we got everything BUT rain!
