Simple Woman's Daybook

Here, once again, is the meme that Peggy at The Simple Woman puts together every Monday. Come share your thoughts!

FOR TODAY September 29, 2008...

Outside My Window... There is weak sunshine filtering through the clouds that are covering the sky. A cold front is supposed to be moving in today. There are dead, crunchy leaves on the ground.

I am thinking... of how grateful I am for God's blessings in my life.

I am thankful for... Cheese! I was able to get to the cheese store again this weekend! Only got some provolone and smoked swiss, but they also had peach Nehi!

From the kitchen... Making candied rose petals and green tomato mincemeat later this evening. For supper, baked fish fillets, sweet potato and steamed broccoli.

I am wearing... black skirt, 9-11 tee, blue sweater and pink housieslippers.

I am creating... my bridal bouquet! Bridal favors. My bridal veil.

I am going... to be very busy this week - we should close on the house either tomorrow or wednesday and then we need to shampoo carpets before moving any furniture in.

I am reading... not a lot at the mo'.

I am hoping... that God will comfort my honey. His Dad passed away this weekend. He had been in a nursing home and had Alzheimer's, but 2 months ago they put him in Hospice, so we knew it was only a matter of time.

I am hearing... nothing, it is remarkably quiet.

Around the house... loads to do - laundry mostly and I still have not conquered the filing cabinet!

One of my favorite cakes.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Finish filing cabinet. Probably shampoo carpets at new house and move a bunch of things. Get green tomato mincemeat made and candy rose petals. Finish shopping for wedding.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
