The Simple Woman's Daybook - November 16, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...overcast and a little cooler. This weekend was just beautiful!

I am thinking...about how dishonesty really makes me angry.

I am thankful for...beautiful weather. This past Saturday was a perfect and I enjoyed every minute. I even played around with my camera and I'll show you the results this week.

I am reading...OK, this is getting bad...nothing. Maybe I'll stop by Half Price Books tonight. There are quite a few books out there that I want to read so I don't know why I haven't picked anything up.

I am hoping...to find a descent sewing machine for little to no money.

On my mind...my To Do list.

From the kitchen...
tacos. We love taco night at our house. We also made pizza last night and we plan on making it an every Sunday thing to make pizza. Last night we used store bought dough but just wasn't the same. This Sunday we are going to be brave and make the dough ourselves.

Around the house...
there's laundry to be put away and we really need to clean our carpet. You'll also see toy catalogs on the table because the kids have been going through them.

One of my favorite things...
mail. I have gotten a few things in the mail lately and I love it, even if it's just a thank you card. I think that's why I love making cards so much and sending them off because there's nothing like the feeling of getting something in the mail.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
finish my Christmas cards (I worked a bit this weekend and I'll show you my progress tomorrow), pick one of my organizing projects to do, take the kids to get the H1N1 vaccine, and catch up on some taped shows.

Here's a picture I'm leaving you:

My friend Lyndsey posted this picture she took of Caleb on her blog today. I love it!

I really like your blog. I noticed that you are studying the book of John. Do you go to Bible Study Fellowship (BSF)? I was just wondering becasue we are studying the book of John this year. It is an international Bible Study and they have groups all over the world. Anyway, John is agreat book isn't it!
