Simple Woman's Daybook

This is a fun meme that Peggy puts together every week over at The Simple Woman. Take a peek at what everyone else is up to!

FOR TODAY September 22, 2008...

Outside My Window...Bright sunshine, cool breeze.

I am thinking... of simplifying my life. Get a little more basic, it has gotten a little cluttered with things.

I am thankful for...the vast deepness of God. There are so many depths to be explored.

From the kitchen... For lunch - left over spagetti and garlic bread or split pea and ham soup. For supper, broiled pork steak, green chili polenta, steamed broccoli, strawberry cupcakes. I will be making some caramel apple scones later.

I am wearing... Navy skirt, red t-shirt and my housieslippers.

I am bridal bouquet and veil. I found the perfect suit (on sale!), in a burnt orange color (yes, I will look like a big pumpkin!) I am going to have fall mums and leaves in my bouquet and I found the perfect gauzy material for my veil! God is great!

I am going... not much of anywhere this week, need to go grocery shopping!

I am reading... The book of Ruth. No matter how many times I read it, I always love it!

I am hoping...that we can close on our house this week - they said maybe Friday!

I am hearing... Mom and brother discussing in the kitchen, neighbor mowing his lawn.

Around the house... vacuuming, sweep and mop, clean the shower.

One of my favorite things...fall leaves - I love all the brilliant colors!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Call about cake. Go see auntie and pick up the rose bushes she is giving us. Confirm number of wedding guests so we can call caterer and give her a number. Finish going through file cabinet.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is an old threshing machine that sits high up on a hill on my uncle's farm. We all went up to see it when we were on vacation this summer. We all signed our names, as on the inside we found where my grandpa had signed his name as a young man.

I do hope you share wedding photos! I can't wait to see your dress! So you've got leaves turning already? No sign of that here yet. It's still mid 80's!!

It sounds like all your wedding plans are coming together beautifully, and I'm sure you will not look like a pumpkin in your suit.
