Simple Woman's Daybook ~ November 3rd

For Today...

Outside my is brighter than it normally is at this time and there is actually cool air spilling in. In feels and smells like fall. Finally.

I am thinking...that I am blessed beyond measure and am glad I started the Gratitude Challenge because it is helping me to find the "little things" that I should be thankful for daily.

From the learning rooms...we will be going over voter registration, voting procedures and will go over my voter pamphlets. One more day...

I am thankful many things. I am thankful for some old friends that I was able to see. I am thankful for forgiveness. I am thankful for a loving, hard-working husband. I am thankful to several families in our church that go out of their way to take care of us and show their love for us.
From the kitchen...I will be looking up recipes to figure out what best to do with all of these little pumpkins.

I am wearing...very cozy, flannel, penguin pajama top and bottoms. No socks or slippers, just cold toes. =]

I am still reading...The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society, the Bible daily and my voter pamphlets more than I want to be reading them.

I am find some time to create. Not for a wedding, not for items to sale, not for gifts...just to create.

I am creating...a small chipboard album that will be my Gratitude album for all the things I post this month and I will also create whatever pops into my head once I get my stuff out. I have been aching to just "do".

I am two little dogs in the rustling leaves outside. They are both fighting for my attention at the open window.

Around the house...there is lots to do. Laundry to be folded and put away, a water heater that needs to be fixed, general cleaning and picking up that got put to the side because of our crazy busy weekend...but did you read the earlier post? I want to create...not clean. LOL I will see if I can do a little of both. =]

One of my favorite having a friend close by who understands me, who is always there to help, who wants to spend time with me and my family and who loves me as I am. I especially love the kind that leave nice things on my door step to surprise me when I come home. ;]

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...CREATE, vote tomorrow, plan something for my little brown bear's birthday that's coming up in a couple of weeks, do some lawn work, try to plan a yard sale...

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Here are my kiddos dressed up for the Harvest Party. Hannah as a nurse, Marco as a little monkey, Naomi as Snow White (a princess, of course) and Taryn as Bath time. So fun!
These are the centerpieces I made for the wedding of Juan and Denisse. Love hydrangeas! I made 18 of these, but only did the double hearts with the grass for the head table.

The kids are darling in their costumes! And I love the centerpieces. I've only recently really discovered hydrangaes and love them!
