The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...December 1st, 2008

Outside my window...It's looks pretty cold out there with lots of snow, but I can still see a few squirrels looking for food.

I am thinking...About a terrible incident that happened yesterday in Oshawa that left a family without a member. You can read about it here.

I am thankful for...For my family.

From the learning rooms...The kids brought home their report cards last Friday, and they both did very well.

From the kitchen...I'm tired of cooking the same things all the time, so this week I'm going to change a bit. I'm hoping that my picky eaters won't have too much of an issue with it.

I am wearing... Older than old jeans (you know the type - full of holes!), pink hoodie and comfy socks.

I am creating...Finally finished the yearly photo book, now I just have to wait until it's printed. Can't wait! Also, I'm knitted a sweater for myself, which I want to finish in the next couple of days. I have a few scarves to knit as Christmas' presents and I don't want to leave it for the last minute.

I am reading...I'm re-reading Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts.

I am hoping...That I'll feel better soon. I don't have time to be sick! I have a ton to do....

I am hearing...I'm starting early this year. I'm listening to Diana Krall's Christmas album.

Around the house...Just the usual... Cleaning. Laundry and cooking.

One of my favorite things...Ginger Spice Cookies. You can get the recipe here.

A few plans for the rest of the week: I have Secret Santa package to mail out, also got to get the Christmas cards ready.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Come and join the fun! You can find more The Simple Woman's Daybook here!
