Simple Woman Monday, November 9th
I am reading... Myself: The Darkness Does Not, by William Biersach To the children: Coffee With Nonna and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
What I'm wearing... Brown, velvet jeans, a light blue knit blouse and a dark blue cardigan with brown buttons
What's new... Kevvy is home from the seminary, having discovered that God's voice was not calling him there, but we're seeing an awful lot of Alena, lately, so we're thinking we know what God's voice may be saying. (Or at least what Kevin is hearing...)
I am hoping... We can find a cheap, but reliable car for Kevvy to drive to school and work with.
I'm thankful for... Getting to spend time around such really awesome young people. It keeps me young.
We're creating... A space in the cellar (and if you've ever seen the pictures, you know this isnot much space) for Mrs. Santa's Workshop. (More on that later)
A few plans for the rest of the week... Nursing Dan back to health -- and trying to stay well myself. All the children took their turns being sick last week, and Dan took his turn over the weekend. The kids all had nasty chest colds, but Dan's illness seems worse; we're wondering if he's getting his turn with the H1N1, since he didn't get it when everyone else did.
Some of my favorite things (and From the Kitchen)... Spiced Pumpkin Latte, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting... Thinking about pumpkin this morning -- with nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice... Gonna have to do some baking this afternoon. Except I'm supposed to be on a diet. Blasted diet. Drat it. Never mind.
Here's a picture thought I'm sharing...
Go see Peggy for lots of Daybooks today!
