My Simple Woman's Daybook for October 11, 2010....Columbus Day!
Outside my window...it is simply a GORGEOUS day in sunny California. Maybe a little warmer than I might like (upper 80’s today) but it’s clear, pretty and perfect in my book.
I am thinking....A LOT of different things really. But mainly about the day I spent this week-end at my mom’s going through soo many of her treasured items with my sisters. She wants to have everything “handled” suddenly and everything either already going to who she wants to have it, or at least knowing that it’s decided and taken care of; how many feelings this whole process stirred up. We didn’t finish or really even come close, but we at least made a start. I am thrilled to know that the cedar chest that once belonged to my great grandmother is to be mine. More on that later.
I am thankful....for the day we got to spend yesterday down in San Diego. My son did both of the Sun morning services, and the Sunday evening as well. What a blessing this was. His messages touched my heart and spirit like I can’t begin to tell you, and made me think about things I need to change; again, more on that later. But I am also thankful for the time I got to spend with my precious grandkids.
I am wearing.....white Capri pants and a multi colored comfy top. It is all in rusts and browns. Quite “fallish” looking haha
I am remembering....soo many things about my past and childhood. I’m sure going through old treasures, photos and memories this week-end put my heart in this place.
I am going...to get my hair done tomorrow….YAY!! My roots are long and needing done soo badly, AND I am feeling another small change is about to happen, haha…
I am reading....just finished actually. Karen Kingsbury “Take four”. I love her writing style and books and can’t seem to get enough of them. She has another new one due this month that I am looking forward to. Also just grabbed Good Housekeeping magazine which I used to buy ALL THE TIME and haven’t for several months. I am looking forward to it.
I am hoping...sooo many things. That I stay on my diet better this week. That my mother continues to improve every day. That my knees would somehow not be soo bad…I am having SUCH a hard time. That we work out all the details and are able to go to Melody’s for Thanksgiving. We haven’t been to her house in almost 2 years. It is soo time. I want to SEE what she has done in her home. I could go on and on but I will stop here. I have given THIS list to my Lord, and I know He will take care of it all. = )
On my mind....again, soo much…But I guess yesterday’s message is standing out right now. I need to make some changes and today’s the day to begin.
From the kitchen....my plan this week is to FINALLY make those apple muffins that you can find HERE that my friend Kris makes that I am just hearing wonderful things about. Only 2 points on Weight Watchers. Now if I can just stick to one will be the question.
Around the house...I am feeling quite content. All my Fall decorations are up and I am enjoying them so.
Plans for the week....hair appointment, lunch with my friend Cindy, and dinner with old friends on Friday.
One of my favorite things.....has got to be blogging recently. I am FORCED to sit it seems much more than I would like with these knees, and I love to visit and chat and pray and cry and laugh with all of you. Hope you all have a wonderful week. I did it Jennifer!
