Simple Daybook #12

For Today... October 6, 2008

Outside my Window... another beautiful Indian summer day - clear skies, bright sunshine, still lots of colored leaves on the trees

I am thinking... about all the things I want to finish before Sunday!

I am thankful for... being a child of God and leaning on Him for direction, wisdom and love

From the kitchen... slim pickins today!

I am wearing... jeans, a favourite brightly striped sweater and brown running shoes

I am reading... Animal, Vegetable, Miracle - A Year of Food Life by Barbara Kingsolver

I am hoping... that the weather holds so we can finish combining the last of our late barley this week

I am hearing... piano music by David Nevue

I am creating... two layouts for assignment #1 in Design My Life - I'll show you when they are done :))

Around the house and yard ... emptied the plant pots today, cut the grass close to the house, dusting and windows that need washing - and still flies coming into the house

One of my favorite things... pumpkin pie with whipped cream

A few plans for the rest of the club tonight - we're discussing The Thirteenth Tale, subbing in grade three tomorrow, farm accounting (still!), babysitting Meadow and preparations for Thanksgiving dinner

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you. . . .

Thanks to Bob for taking the picture when I was at work one day last week :))

Be sure to visit The Simple Woman and check out the rest of the participants.

  9. The colours are just so beautiful in the fall. Today was chilly here and we've noticed lots of fall colours the last few weeks. We're heading to Cape Breton next week. I can't wait to see what's up there. I'll take some photos, I promise.

    So nice, Crystal. I feel like we're together, sharing a cup of tea, when I hear about your thoughts and what you have planned for the day and week.

    Lovely picture. Our trees are very much green around here.
