The Simple Woman's Daybook - November 2, 2009


For today...

Outside my window...
another beautiful Fall day. The air is cool and the sky is clear. I love it!

I am thinking...
happy thoughts.

I am thankful for...
my friend Lyndsey. She came over yesterday to take pictures of us for our Christmas picture. It was so nice of her to take the time to do that for us. The pictures turned out really nice. Thanks Lyndsey!

I am reading...
nothing. I need to figure out my next book.

I am hoping...
that the sun shines all week!

On my mind...
how to make my Christmas cards. I think I'm going to take on the challenge this year.

Pondering these words...
Jamison: "Mom, did you know listen and silent are spelled with the same letters?"

From the kitchen...
Tacos, macaroni and cheese/burgers, and I want to make some chocolate chip cookies.

Around the house...
I need to clean the carpet, put laundry away and organize my craft space.

One of my favorite things...
Movie nights with the kids. Last night we watched a new Dora special and had popcorn. I truly enjoy times like that.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
Clean (because I'm having a birthday party on Saturday), finalize the menu for the party, have dinner with friends on Thursday, enjoy my party on Saturday and my birthday on Sunday!

I just finished The Namesake by Lahiri. It was a great book!

We are having some great fall weather here too...and taco sounds really yummy. I may have to add them to our menu for this week! Can't wait to see what you come up with for Christmas cards. I was thinking about attempting ours this year too!

Hi there! I just found your blog through tatertots and jello's comment section. I noticed you were thinking about doing a Family Rules board. I recently made one too and they are so much fun! :) You can see mine here if you're interested:

You can buy the canvas at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. They can get pricey so I would use a coupon if possible! Good luck and keep us posted if you make one. :)

The food sounds yummy!

I want to tackle our own cards also. Not sure though. Heidi from Blue Eyed Blessings sells Stampin UP and she said she would help me with them if I had an idea.

You are so on the ball Kelli. Getting your Christmas pictures taken already! Good for you!

I got the canvas that I did the Family Rules just at the craft store. I used a 40% coupon so I think it ended up being under $20.

Have a great week my friend!

I'm thinking of baking cookies this week. I'm leaning towards oatmeal cookies.

Way to go on the Christmas photos already...I should go ahead and do it also.

Have a great week!
