A Simple Woman's Daybook






FOR TODAY

Outside my window...it's already just after 8am but it is dark and gray outside. The forecast today is heavy rain/wind. At least the Maple trees are a cheery shade of autumn even if the rest of the world looks like winter


I am thinking...that I have a lot to get ready before my parents arrive this afternoon



I am thankful...for creation. What an amazing God we serve, that He could speak this wonderful beauty into existence




From the learning rooms...Thanksgiving studies, crafts and books




In the kitchen...sliced homestead raised ham for breakfast along with homemade raspberry jam on toast and this afternoon I'll make a new cheesecake with toffee




I am wearing...an old jean skirt with a grey t-shirt





I am creating...a apron for my mom and a table runner for my mother in law




I am going...to be cleaning the house today!




I am wondering... how many emergency storm calls will come in today with trees down




I am reading...Having a Mary Spirit and Memories of Mark Twain and Steve Gillis




I am hoping...that my parents don't get sick with the cold that we've all had for a couple weeks now




I am looking forward to... a cozy warm fire and baking Christmas cookies- starting Friday!




I am hearing...the sound of Mason and Timber playing with Legos. Wyatt and Layton went to work with daddy this morning




Around the house...laundry and cleaning out the pig barn




I am pondering...possibly opening up a new Etsy shop. I really have to pray about that one!




One of my favorite things... having my entire family cozy in the living room after dinner on a cold, rainy night




A few plans for the rest of the week... a Thanksgiving feast with family, visiting with my parents, and finishing up some sewing





A picture thought... oh the imagination and mind of a child....

I love reading this Woman's Daybook posts.
What kind of Etsy shop are you thinking about? Something different than before?
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

I too wonder what would be in your Etsy shop. It was an interesting post. I enjoyed your thoughts.
