The Simple Woman's Daybook - November 30, 2009

For today...

Outside my window...
cloudy and cool.

I am thinking...that this may be the only time today that I get on the computer. I have a bad cold and my bed is calling me.

I am thankful for...the long weekend. We had such a great time this weekend and I'm so thankful that I got to share it with so many people that I love.

I am reading...still so sad...nothing. I have just been busy with other things I haven't had (or made) the time.

I am hoping...to feel better so that I can go to BSF tonight, but it's not looking good.

On my mind...not much. It's kind of cloudy at the moment.

From the kitchen...Leftovers are almost gone, I'm making baked ziti this week and cookies for a cookie exchange party that I'm going to on Saturday.

Around the house...my craft stuff because I finished my Christmas cards (I'll show them after I've mailed them out), I am almost done with my advent calendar and there are little gifts I want to make.

One of my favorite things...Christmas shopping with my mom.

A few plans for the rest of the week...put up our new Christmas tree, bake cookies, and take the kids to get their Christmas pjs.

Here's a picture I'm leaving you with...

This is supposed to be a scene of us watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas last night. We were all ready with snacks and Jamison even had her book ready. BUT, then Mommy realized that it comes on TONIGHT. Oops. So we watched Little Einsteins instead.

What's going on with you today...share here.

I'm sorry you aren't feeling good. I hope you start feeling better soon! I can't wait to see how your cards and your advent calendar turned out! And I am SUPER jealous of your cookie exchange...I want to do one, but none of my friends like to bake like I do!

Okay, let's read the Sookie Stackhouse series since you need a book! I just got it and I'm hooked...it's like Twilight for grownups! I need to make cookies, too, for my exchange. I have a feeling I'll be waiting til the last minute :)

Hope you're feeling better, Kelli...get some rest and enjoy that bed! I'm with you, I have been so busy, I've got a sore throat and feel crummy. I love the kids picture, so cute! We had a slumber party Thanksgiving night and watch the Grinch too! It had been awhile since we could do that! Take care and enjoy the rest of the week, sounds like you have some great plans!

It is so hard to be sick, especially when you are MOM. Mom's aren't supposed to get sick! Love the Grinch movie and Polar Express.

Your children are beautiful. I hope you are well soon. BSF is a great place to go. I went for a lot of years. Doylene
