The Simple Woman's Daybook - December 14, 2009

FOR TODAY December 14, 2009
Outside my window...Partly Cloudy and 60 Degrees
I am thinking... about the Season of Advent. We celebrated the third week of Advent with a dinner last night with old and new friends. It was really a wonderful time of fellowship.
I am thankful for...forgiveness. It doesn’t come easy, and it sometimes comes with a cost, but it has such wonderful meaning and worth.
From the kitchen... Pumpkin Bread. I have wanted to make some for weeks now. This week I will!
I am wearing...Black and Teal-Green-yellow Top, Black slacks, and strappy heals.
I am creating... a home filled with Christmas Celebrating!
I am going... to spend the evening with Mom tonight. The boys have their bible study tonight and we girls get to eat and chat! I really love my time with her.
I am reading...The Christmas Carol. My husband and I have been reading bits of it before we go to sleep at night. It was been really wonderful.
I am see an old friend for lunch this week.
I am hearing...I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas…..I heard it on the radio last week and it hasn’t left my mind.
Around the house... there isn’t much out of place. With our weekly Advent Dinners the four Sunday’s before Christmas, and all of our other Holiday plans, there hasn’t been much time to make a mess!!
One of my favorite looking at Christmas Lights. We took a tour of our area on our date night last Friday. We found wonderful displays, some even to music on an FM channel. Its truly amazing how clever some people are.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Work, Market, Dinner with the In-Laws, Date Night to Rogers Garden’s on Friday, Caroling with my Nieces on Saturday Night, and our Forth Advent Dinner on Sunday.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
