Simple Woman's Daybook...



Adapted from Peggy's Blog, The Simple Woman
FOR TODAY... November 11, 2008
Outside my window... the sun is not yet up and it is down right cold! (I love it)
I am thinking...that each day is a gift, never guaranteed.
I am thankful for...this day (Veteran's Day) and I am thankful for my father, grandfather and great grandfather. They all served and sacrificed for this country.
From the learning rooms...the books will stay closed, because they officially have the day off. =]
From the kitchen...beef cocido (soup/stew) for dinner with squash, corn on the cob chunks, potatoes, carrots....mmmmmm....
I am wearing...my light green and pink pajamas and try to stay warm, but too lazy to get my robe.
I am creating...cards, page layouts and whatever else strikes my fancy today.
I am going...to take Taryn out today for some one on one fun. She turns 9 today!
I am reading...Written on the Wind by Judith Pella, my Bible and my last issue of Creating Keepsakes that just came in yesterday.
I am hoping...that a dear friend of mine will call me, once and for all, and we can fix some long misunderstood hurts.
I am hearing...the news from the television.
Around the house...I need to get things organized for the big church yard sale.
One of my favorite things...is sleeping with the windows open when it is chilly and waking up to a room that is too cold and then being able to snuggle into the blankets for a few minutes more.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Special day today for Taryn, church tomorrow, birthday party shopping on Friday and Birthday Party for Taryn on Saturday.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...


WWII Memorial in Washington D.C.
With a view of the reflecting pool, The Freedom Wall at the west side of the memorial, holds 4,048 gold stars, each one representing 100 dead American soldiers. About 76% of causalities were Army personnel, 21% Army Air Corps, 15% Navy, 6% Marines and 2% Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. Surprisingly, the Merchant Marines had the highest percentage of casualties, close to 4%, slightly higher than the Marines at 3.7%. Over 14,000 airmen, soldiers, sailors and marines also died as prisoners of war. (photo by Jaime Morales, Jr.)
