The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today...Wednesday, November 12th
Outside my Window...it's chillier than it looks. North Carolina has copious and frequent sunshine, but the presence thereof has little bearing on the actual temperature.
Towards a daily rhythm...taking out the trash and recycling.
I am thinking...of whether I can get away with eating ice cream tonight.
I am thankful for...healthcare professionals who care enough to explain things with patience and compassion. And a trip cancelled, giving us a little more breathing room in the schedule.
From the kitchen...green veggies! With a little sprinkle of cheese on top. Yum for vegetables!
I am wearing...maternity jeans and a stretchy lime green top with black fleece and clear-color earrings.
I am reading...I just finally finished In the Company of Others by Julie E. Czerneda. Great read! I've got my eye on a couple of mysteries next. I'm also reading various child-care things and my usual list of blogs. NaBloPoMo gives me regular doses of my favorites!
I am creating...more handouts for my students.
I am hoping...to acquire a few more pieces of necessary furniture without spending an arm and a leg. I am hoping to make headway on clearing the little room so that it can be buffed and painted. I am hoping that I have enough energy to dance tomorrow!
I am hearing...my windchimes gently donging.
I am going to breathe deeply...and drink more water.
Around the house...my semi-annual polishing of silver. My favorites are a set of dessert forks and a set of demi-tasse spoons used for eating ice cream. Even though they get a lot of use, they still need some polish now and then.
Bring beauty to my home...A painting by my young niece. Blues and purple and greens and other colors.
One of my favorite things...A surprise package from my sister. In addition to some commemorative Obama stickers, she sent fuzzy socks, truffles, and both a painting and scribble-collection from my niece. Yea! Surprise packages are so much fun!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...finishing a dance program, quilting with my Mom, catching up on both decluttering and resting, writing back to my sister and various other friends, buying things like cat food and trash cans.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
