A Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... Wednesday, December 23, 2015, 1:00 PM

Outside my window...It is cloudy with occasional showers, 64 degrees, there may be storms later....had to go out and run off a squirrel who had found his way into the feeder attached to the window....fed the fish, I think we have some babies, at least there are more than in the summer.

A Bible verse I'm sharing...Matthew 1:23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

I am thinking...Nothing about getting ready for the holidays has stressed me this year.

I am thankful...that I'm not one of those shoppers rushing around out there in the crowds and traffic searching for the perfect gift.

I am wearing...Pink knit pants, a turquoise T with rind stone snowmen on front, a flannel shirt and Christmas socks.

I am creating...nothing at the moment but there are projects ready for whenever the mood strikes.

I am hang around home today

I am wondering...what it is Smokey is playing with on the carpet over there, looks like a worm: I probably tracked inside on my feet when I went to scare the squirrel off.

I am reading...Marc Cameron's State of Emergency

I am hoping...we don't have bad weather.....the weatherman said there's a possibility of a tornado

In his garden...this is the season when the garden is laying by, Spinach in the ground but not much else happening at this time

A song that stays on my mind...lately it has been The Phantom of the Opera which I listened to on Sunday.

In my kitchen...Sauerkraut and wieners, Mac and cheese and green beans for lunch....lots of goodies for snacking

A favorite quote for today..."You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have got to go to them sometimes." Winnie

From my photo album...

One of my favorite things...listening to non-stop Christmas music

  1. I enjoyed catching up with you through your daybook post.
    I, too, am glad I'm not running around fighting the crowds and shopping! I spent the day in the kitchen, instead.
    I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

  2. I am so glad that I am finished shopping. No need to run around in the madness of the day before Christmas crowd.

    Have a wonderful Christmas.

    God bless.

  3. I've really enjoyed the advancing of the season this year -- I stayed well on top of the game, so like you, didn't spend today running around for that last perfect gift...or worse yet, gifts!! Todd and I will stay tucked in tomorrow until it's time to go to our daughter's house for Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas!! :)

  4. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! We had thunderstorms forecast but thankfully only had some heavy rain part of the morning.
