The Simple Woman's Daybook



For Today, December 10th, 2008

Outside my window...it is freezing, abnormal around here, and I know it desperately wants to snow but we are just not that lucky

I am thinking...that it is ironic that a few days ago I burned the outside of my hands and now they are like icicles

I am thankful for....all the beautiful-hearted children in the world that bring a smile to my face

From the learning rooms.... my old boss contacted me so it looks like I might be homeschooling again next year

From the kitchen.....there sits a bunch of cans of soup for hubby, who did not respond well to his anesthesia yesterday

I am wearing....long sleeved shirt topped by a hoodie, jeans topped with blanket, I'm still cold!

I am creating.... a baby blanket for my new niece to be born in February

I am going... to a wedding on Friday for my best friend, for whom I never thought I would live to see the day

I am reading...still reading Marie Antoinette, but in between that I am reading some Smithsonian magazines I got at the library for only 10 cents a piece; I will later save them to use in projects

I am hoping...that a visit to the doctor will tell me I am not broken, and that I can stop resenting someone in my life and accept what may come

I am hearing...the ticking of my I Love Lucy clock and the Matrix playing in the living room

Around the house...abundant Christmas decorations are in every corner, along with mail I haven't opened yet, socks that the cats stole, and craft items I haven't decided what to do with yet

One of my favorite things....my lap desk, I use it for everything

A few plans for the rest of the week....Thursday nanny-ing followed by some rest finally!; Friday supermarket and wedding, and Saturday baking at the restaurant which is going really well by the way! I can't keep up with the demand

Here's a picture thought I am sharing:

I love when cameras do funny things. One day I will own a professional camera and live in scrapbook heaven forever!
Can you guess what it is?

You have a beautiful blog. Being frugal makes a lot of precious memories for the future. I remember those days well. I'm in AR and we have a cold spell here too. I think the picture is a Christmas tree. I hope you are enjoying the holidays. Doylene

I like haing fun with my camera too! I did similare pics of my tree last year! I have a canon 5 D (a pro camera)..and I LOVE IT!! I also have the digital rebel xt-I use as my back up camera when I do shoots, and just as my everyday camera (since it is so much lighter than my Pro). Hope you get the camera of your dreams soon!

No we did not get any snow, but my mom three hours north did. I was so envious :) Thanks for visiting
