The Simple Woman's Daybook - Dec.31


Outside my is midnight as I am writing this so it is dark, windy & cold.

I am thinking... how very blessed I am.

I am thankful sweet husband! He is a good Christian man. He is my leader,my provider and my protector. I love him so.

From the learning rooms...This category is for homeschooling but I am including it from now on.  I love to learn and one thing that I am going to start on is improving my handwriting.

From the kitchen... I made some candy that I saw on Heidi's Blog! Easy & delicious!

I am creating...Dish cloths!!! I am really in to crocheting these. It is fun and practical.

I am bed as soon as I do this post!

I am reading... a book that a sweet blogger sent me called Praying God's Will For My Son. (more on that in a later post).

I am praying... for a very close friend that is very sick. Please help me pray.

I am hoping... for a miracle!

I am hearing... my husband snoring!  But earlier I was hearing him talk to the football game on t.v.!!!!  Does your husband do that? lol 

Around the house... "Big Sis" brought 3 of our grandchildren over and we were playing Wheel Of Fortune on the Wii!  We had so much fun. It is addicting!!!

One of my favorite things... having no where to go.

A few plans for the rest of the week... taking one day at a time and realizing that every day is a gift.

I am wondering...what next year will bring.

I want to... slow down, do better and do more.

I am wearing... Christmas Pajamas.(I told you that I want to keep the Christmas spirit)!

Here is my picture thought that I am sharing:
This is looking out of my living room windows.
I love snow days!

A very Happy New Year to you and yours.

A very good daybook...I add the learning room from time to time and I omitted I am wearing because it was always pajamas although I don't wear them all day...most days anyway...Have a great year!

I love the crocheted or knitted dishcloths Val - my mother used to make them from Sugar and Cream yarn. I still have one she made and one I made - but they're getting pretty thin so I'm not sure how much longer they'll last. Maybe I should try to reteach myself how to knit them! blessings, marlene

"Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold."

Happy New Year dear Valerie, wishing you and yours all the very best that 2011 has to offer! xoxo
