A Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY....Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Outside my window...Its Fall, Y'all!.....cloudy,59°F, 15C

I am thinking...that it has been ages since I've posted....where have I been and what have I been doing....

I am thankful...that God paints the trees such beautiful colors......

From the kitchen...cinnamon raisin toast and coffee

I am wearing...a pink and white robe over my pajamas

I am creating...Cozy Shoulder fleece wraps for nursing home patients and a surprise for my club members

I am going...stay home today and hopefully get some more work done in the studio

One year ago today...there were only 3 posts in November last year...on the 14th, it was cloudy and 58 with leaves falling down like snow....I was working on my Christmas list, and year end paper work for the club (we do an annual report of our work), making strips for a fabric wreath and reading a book by Greg Beck.

I am wondering...about my pen pal...I've not written her in a while and feel bad about it, I hope to get a letter in the mail today and then be more regular with my correspondence

These days I'm reading...The Passing Bells by Philip Rock

I am praying...for a few more weeks of Fall before cold weather begins.....Erin......

I remember when...we used to pick cotton by hand.......seeing the stacks of cotton at the gin yesterday brought back memories

I am looking forward to...Thanksgiving and maybe seeing my son while he's home on R&R.....finishing my Christmas shopping and wrapping a few gifts to take to Georgia this month

A verse for today...Psalm 147:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains

I am hearing...Honey Bear coughing......the furnace......the fan on the laptop

Around the house...the carpet needs cleaning....

A favorite quote for today...“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” 
― L.M. MontgomeryAnne of Green Gables

One of my favorite things...besides riding down the road, seeing the beautiful trees...........a winning football season for the Tigers

A few plans for the rest of the week: workshop tomorrow, hair appointment on Friday and lunch with Rene........need to get to the craft store and also buy some groceries before the end of the week.

From my photo file....some from our recent trip to North Carolina


  1. Sounds nice and cozy in your home with your coffee, cinnamon toast and PJ's. Love the pictures!

  2. Good to see a post from you pop up! You'll have to show us those shoulder wraps - sounds like a neat idea!

  3. Sounds like you had the perfect day.

    God bless.

  4. It was great to find a comment from you, yesterday! I'd stopped over a couple of times, and noticed you hadn't posted in a while.

    Glad to hear that you are doing well, and I loved the pics from your trip!

    Seeing cotton being picked around here brings back lots of memories to us, too (sweat, hard work, messed up hands)... The cotton picker is a great invention :)
