A Simple Woman's Daybook

(Link back to Peggy's daybook entries through A Simple Woman's Daybook picture on right column)

For today....

Outside my window...a bright and sunny day with temperatures hovering around 35 degrees. It's great to see the sun and have it heat the house a bit.

I am thinking...we have a busy 3 days of school along with lots of Thanksgiving prep

From the learning rooms....still getting going this morning, but a full Monday as usual. Piano lessons this afternoon to round out our day.

From the kitchen...need to get a plan going for supper - I think spaghetti tonight. A 20 lb turkey and 6 lb turkey breast are busy thawing in the fridge!

I am wearing...the usual uniform! :) Slippers, socks, black work out pants, white shirt, comfy gray sweatshirt, and a quilted flannel thrown on the top until the house warms up a bit

I am reading...A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann (inspirational fiction)

I am hoping...that I can keep my focus on the big picture this week - family, thankfulness, fun, and fellowship

I am creating...my menu for the "big" dinner, some ideas for Thanksgiving crafts to have the kids do Thursday am while we're cooking

Around the house...wash machine going with the first load today, TJ is still sleeping, but everything cleaning wise is under control for the week

One of my favorite things...waking up to a clean bedroom with everything in its place - evidence of a good weekend project

A few plans for the rest of the week...finish cleaning, get Operation Christmas Child boxes done (they're due today!), shopping for groceries, and enjoying time with my mom when she comes

Have a blessed day!

Loved your daybook. I'm like you, I need to keep my focus on the big picture this week, and not all the little details pulling at me. And some craft projects for Thursday morning sound like a great idea. Thanks for the tip. Have a great Thanksgiving!
