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,

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.
