Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY(September 21, 2009)...

Outside my window... Puffy clouds in a bright blue sky! I love the bright blue sky that autumn brings!

I am thinking... of all I want to do today versus all I must do today

I am thankful for...Jesus and all he has done for me

I am remembering ... wow - has it been almost a year since I got married? Less than a month to go to our anniversary. I remember how unsure I was - silly me!

From the learning rooms... putting together a Harvest Moon tea party - decorations, food, invitations, games . . .

From the kitchen... freezing pesto and marinara sauce, baking banana bread and wheat rolls, Roasting chicken and potatoes Anna, plus cauliflower with cheese

I am wearing...cream colored PJ's with roses on them - so girly! A gift from my dear mother.

On my mind ... A dear sister who had been coming to church and now won't even accept our calls. Praying that whatever is wrong will come out and be dealt with.

I am creating...teapots. Not clay ones, they are done on cardstock, but what fun!

I am going... to take my dear kittie to the vet this afternoon - oh he hates that. He needs his blood sugar checked and if it is okay, does not have to go back for another year.

I am reading... Still in Psalms - just soaking it in. The Twisted Root by Anne Perry.

Noticing that is starting to get dark so early in the evenings! Yep, fall is here all right!

I am hoping...that our family reunion coming up this weekend will go smoothly

I am hearing...just the fan on my computer and the soft ticking of the clock.

Around the house... Vacuuming, clean the tub, sweep and mop the kitchen, a couple of loads of laundry. Then I am cleaning out and organizing my pantry - it has gotten a bit of a mess.

Pondering these words... Psalms 46:2 "Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas." Amplified version
"Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea" KJV -- Wow - what a promise - what do we have to be scared of?

One of my favorite things... is my new parallel Bible. KJV on one side of the page and amplified on the other - much easier to understand that way

A few plans for the rest of the week: working (of course), then getting ready as we have a family reunion on Saturday

Here is picture for thought I am pictures today as blogger will not allow me to upload any images at all. Bummer - I was going to show you one of my teapots and my candied rose petals. Hmmmm . . . maybe I can do this later.

Not done yet, still have to add some glitz and such!

Peggy is our gracious host - go on and take a look at everyone else!
