Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY November 24, 2008...

Outside my window...Beautiful sunshine and a blue cloudless sky.

I am thinking... that I am glad that I have a humble home where happiness dwells!

I am thankful for... Parents that came to the rescue. No sooner had we started out to St. Louis Friday evening - a 4 hour drive- than the car started making a funny noise. Honey looked at it and said - I think I can fix it when we get to your Mom and Dad's - a 10 minute drive. Come to find out, it was much more extensive than he thought - so Mom and Dad let us borrow their car. Whew!

From the kitchen... cheesy double-decker tacos tonight, venison tenderloin tomorrow, teriyaki chicken for Wednesday.

I am wearing... Purple turtleneck, cream sweater, pink poodle socks, pink housieslippers, navy skirt.

I am creating... Christmas cards!

I am going... to go to Aldi's tonight when Honey gets home.

I am reading... not much right now.

I am hoping... that Honey's new boots will help his feet.

I am hearing... not much, very quiet around here.

Around the house... laundry and vacuuming.

One of my favorite things... is Steak and Shake - I know, my bad!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Put new comforter set on bed today, finish up christmas cards and mail, rake leaves.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is just me!

Raquel - I love reading your daybook entries. Hey, you talk about visiting Aldi's. I didn't know you had Aldi over there, thought it was just a European thing. We're lucky to have 2 in our town.
love, Angie, xx

|I don't know why I am drawn to your Journal...but it's so peaceful and happy! I can't remember a special day like that since I was a teenager of our farm in Wisconsin before I joined the Army.
BTW, my wife, used to breed and show fancy cats. I am a dog lover, and we have a 'Katrina survivor' named Deuce, the Rottweler.

Warm Regards,
Tom S

Isn't the weather just perfect at the moment? We had clear blue skies and 68F today. Lovely.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Raquel. Love & hugs.

You sound so happy on the inside. I spend my days regretting what I haven't done and rarely stop to enjoy the things I do. Again, I always have tears in my eyes after coming to your page and reading while listening to your music.

Thank you.
