The Simple Woman's Daybook ~#141~ 11/1/11
For Today . . .
Outside my window . . . bright, beautiful fall day. Still have a few golden-yellow-tinged-in-red leaves on 1 of our trees. Gorgeous.
I am thinking . . . about how much I love fall. Our area is to the point where we're down to mostly golds, a little red in the Maples & the deep rusts & burgandies of Oaks. So beautiful.
I am thankful for . . . answered prayer.
From the kitchen . . . Tuesday bread baking day. Chomping at the bit to get started painting my cabinets ~ I have my new hardware picked out, too.
I am wearing . . . jeans, purple pull-over shirt, purple/pink/blue/green scarf that a sweet co-worker brought me back from vacation, my mom's purple bracelet.
I am creating . . . a peaceful, CHRIST-centered home. Thinking about what to make for homemade CHRISTmas gifts . . . hmmmm . . .
I am going . . . to do a writing project, check a few blogs, putter around the house, bake, go to work later . . .
I am wondering . . . as wander. '-)
I am reading . . . The Story & The Heart of the Story for church & Sunday School. This has been SO good. I highly recommend this ~ it takes your entire church through the Bible in 31 weeks.
I am hoping . . . that work goes quickly tonight. As grateful as I am for my job, today's 1 of those days that I would like to stay home.
I am looking forward to . . . our new bathtub being put in tomorrow.
I am hearing . . . radio, typing fingers, leaves skittering by the window.
Around the house . . . general pick up, preparing the downstairs bathroom for the workmen who will take it over tomorrow.
One of my favorite things . . . remembering sweet memories.
A few plans for the rest of the week . . . family time, work, home repairs, worship w/the saints.
Pondering these words . . . "God's wrath is getting what we deserve, God's grace is getting what we do not deserve." ~from Sunday's sermon.
Scripture thought . . . "But you have forsaken Me & served other gods, so I will no longer save you. Go & cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!" ~Judges 10:16 Are we living in a time of history repeating itself?
Here's a picture thought I am sharing with you . . .
Some oregano & rosemary I brought in for the winter from my herb garden.
