The Simple Woman's Daybook - November 23, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...cloudy. We are supposed to have cloudy and cooler temperatures this week. That unspoken season is not too far behind.

I am thinking...about the fact that that Christmas music really does put me in a good mood. I broke out the Christmas station today...I just couldn't wait.

I am thankful for...a short work week...only 3 days.

I am reading...sigh...still nothing. There are two books that I am going to look for at Half Price books tonight, one of them is Twilight.

I am hoping...for smooth travels to and from Cleveland on Thursday.

On my mind...the errands I need to run tonight before BSF. I need to go to Bath and Body Works, Old Navy, Target, Half Price Books and Sam's Club. Whew!

From the kitchen...light meals before the big meal on Thursday. Renee is doing most of the cooking and I will help where I can. On Friday I'm going to make dressing, macaroni and cheese and a sweet potato pie. My MIL is deep frying a turkey for me and my mom is bringing over greens. I like to have food at my house during the holidays even if I'm not hosting.

Around the house...for the last week I've been cleaning out my room, trying to simplify and it is coming along nicely. Now if I can only get Rondell to work on his side (hint, hint Ron).

One of my favorite things...OSU football. I'm sad that the season is over and I can't wait for the Rose Bowl.

A few plans for the week...LOTS of errands tonight, Cleveland on Thursday, dinner with my mom Friday, finishing Christmas cards, making my advent calendar, shopping for the kids and going to a Pampered Chef party.

Share you entry here.

Ah, yes, the errands never end...here, here! I hope you get everything done that you want to get done this week, but if not, "just let it go" as my mother says. =)

Hope you enjoy "Twilight!" Easily one of the best books/sagas I have ever read.
