Daybook for October 18, 2010


Outside my window... it's a beautiful day of sunshine and blue skies. A bit cool, but pretty.

I am thinking...sometimes you have to take the bad with the good. I know that sounds backwards, but that just happened. I had a good thing happen, followed by a bad thing. 'Tis life.

I am thankful for...my hubby, and how much he shows he appreciates me.

From the kitchen...made the best Chicken corn chowder yesterday! Yum. Then warmed it up for lunch today - wish there was more!

I am wearing...gray pants, purple tee with sequins.

I am creating...a growing business.

I am going...crazy, want to come along??? (lol)

I am reading...Proverbs, and quotes from Stephen Covey.

I am hoping...that my children will some day live for the Lord, and be successful in what they do.

I am hearing...the ticking of our reproduction mantle clock. I love that sound.

Around the house...getting ready to redecorate our smallest bedroom.

One of my favorite things...playing sudoku, drinking a cup of tea, with my afghan snuggled around me.

A few plans for the rest of the week: working for clients, go to small group, doing the laundry.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Sometimes, it's true...big things come in small packages. This little, hole in the wall of a country store, we thought was no bigger than what you see. However, it went on, and on, and on. It was an Amish Farm supply store - and they had seed, tools, boots, tea pots (bigger than you could imagine!), local honey, local jam, flour - all kinds, baked goods, trivets, wood furniture....I can't even list how many things we found of interest. Much of it hand produced. What a treat to come upon this place!

I would love to find a store like that Amish store!

I love to curl up with hot tea, an afghan and a puzzle, too, except instead of sodoku, it would be a word find puzzle for me.

First, of all...I'm right behind you on the road to 'crazy'! lol But before we get lost...tell me where that store is!

Blessings, Kim<><

You're gonna have to drive a "fer piece" to get there, Kim - I believe it was in Logan County. I'll ask John if he remembers where exactly. What a surprise...a real hide-away. I was fascinated with their tea-kettles. I want one!! They were huge - bigger than the size of my burners - but they sure would hold a lot of water! They're probably meant for a wood stove top...but who cares?
