The Simple Woman's Daybook Nov. 16

Outside my window... cloudy, but not too cold.

I am thinking... about going to library school and becoming a librarian once the kids are older

I am thankful for... a quiet day at home with no scheduled activities!

I am wearing... gray fleece sweatpants, a black sweatshirt with the name of my friends' band on it, striped socks that my mom knitted for me

I am remembering... how much I love fall weather

I am going... nowhere at all next weekend. Seems like a weekend at home is a rare thing lately!

I am reading... Just finished Ladder of Years, by Anne Tyler. I'm also in the middle of reading Great Books, by David Denby.

I am hoping... to finish all my Christmas present projects in time

On my mind... Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. I love the Christmas season!!

From the learning rooms... Lucy's writing her own chapter book

Noticing that... my favorite slippers from Austria are missing

Pondering these words... "My soul find rest in God alone."

From the kitchen... chicken thighs, stuffing, broccoli, Michigan-grown organic squash

Around the house... listening to Matthew's little voice singing Bible songs in his room during his rest time

One of my favorite things~ Christmas music

From my picture journal..

One of Lucy's spider webs made out of yarn.
