A Simple Woman's Day Book

From Mama Bear's Journal and

FOR TODAY...Tuesday, October 2, 2012

Outside my window...a Squirrel is busy gathering pine straw and Coconut fiber from my flower pots to build his nest in the Maple tree....its 60°F, 16°C, and expected to reach 70, today (wonderful)....it is wet because we had several inches of rain yesterday and during the night...now a foggy, misty rain is still falling...our Maple tree continues to become more red as the leaves change color..very few leaves are falling, though...soon I will need to wash some of my potted plants and bring them back inside for the winter...

I am thinking...about what I need to do today and the rest of the week...feeling much better than last week and so am anxious to get my housework finished and do some creating.

I am thankful...for the cooler weather, for the opportunity to stay home and do some much needed work, for God's provision, his blessing, his faithfulness, for friends and family...

From the kitchen...Chicken with Fetticine Alfredo and a salad for dinner with some of Rene's Sour Dough Bread, I think...the Princess will be coming after school and this meal will make her happy...she's a pasta lover........we have a few late tomatoes from the garden and really should have another BLT before they're all gone....

I am wearing...pink pajamas and a pink tank top, barefoot and covered in a red afghan

I am creating...(sorry no photos today)...ideas for Christmas gifts....binding for the Breast Cancer Quilt....a neat studio (I hope)

I am going...to stay home until time to pick up the Princess (she can't ride the bus to my house)

One year ago today...It was 56 degrees...but the days high was still in the 80s.....Honey Bear was working only 3 days a week in Memphis, gearing down for retirement from that job...Son would soon be returning from Afghanistan....I was getting ready to quilt the Tis the Season quilt....Fall decorating was done...I was reading another Debbie Macomber book...I was sticking to my eating plan, tracking my food, losing a pound a week...

I am wondering...about possible Christmas gifts to make and buy

These days I'm reading...Chasing Mona Lisa by Tricia Goyer...thanks to Barbara H at Stray Thoughts for loaning me this book via my kindle...

I am praying...that I can get back on track with my eating and exercise....safe travel for Daughter and the children on Sunday as the go to Disney World...my SIL, just diagnosed with Hotchin's...for our country and the upcoming election

I remember when...during football season in the Fall, we dressed in school colors on Friday's, the cheerleaders would go room to room and the students would follow them to the gym for pep rallies, cheering as we went, the players would get up and say a few words as would the coach, firing up the spirit, getting ready for the contest taking place that night...

I am looking forward to...spending time with the Princess this afternoon (its been several weeks since she was here)...

A verse for today...I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. —Philippians 4:11

Discovering that....days are already getting shorter

I am hearing...traffic in the far distance....clocks ticking....its very quiet

Around the house...clothes to put away from yesterday's laundry, a little ironing, the bed to make, then........some tidying in the studio and some sewing

Song that stays on my Mind...Hello World by Lady Antebellum

A favorite quote for today...Contentment is not possessing everything but giving thanks for everything you possess.from Our Daily Bread

One of my favorite things...listening to beautiful music while I work

A few plans for the rest of the week:
