My Simple Woman's Daybook

September 26th, 2010

Outside my window...a beautiful, sunny day. Cool with a strong hint of fall.

I am thinking... how sometimes you just have to step up to the plate and bat, even if you don't think you're good at it.

I am thankful for... food on my table, something many in this area do not have.

I am wearing... my old, purple, floral tee with black pants

In the office - notes for work, and a bamboo plant that needs some TLC.

I am remembering...good times with my family as we spent time at our cottage in Michigan with extended family. One event had us doing a "fashion" show on a rainy day. Never forget my cousin Daryl in my Aunt Barb's swimsuit. Absolutely hysterical.

I am spend time with our small group, and learning more about being a Good Samaritan.

I am currently reading... Proverbs.

I am hoping... that when Pastor says we'll feed 1000 OR MORE for Thanksgiving, heavy emphasis will be put on the OR MORE.

On my mind... MY CHILDREN, as they continue to walk apart from the Lord, and my nieces and brother as they've encountered a very difficult time in their lives - again.

Noticing that... I need to dust.

Pondering these words... "I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do." ~Edward Everett Hale

From the kitchen... these amazingly good German Chocolate bars that taste like homemade German Chocolate Cake...the small group gets them...I'm having crackers & cheese!

Around the house... picking things up, and straightening things out for company.

One of my favorite things - a trip to the country for lots of apple varieties.

From my camera...~
The season has begun...I love the colors of fall.

Oh how I loved Fall in Ohio! We don't get to experience much fall in Florida, so I try to pretend it's getting cooler and I decorate for fall anyway. Looking forward to cooler weather sometime late in October here. Thank you for sharing the view from your window!!

I enjoyed your answers very much, I felt like I could relate to so many of them.

Love your fall picture!

Proverbs is one of my favorite books to read ...
