Simple Woman's Daybook


FOR TODAY (October 21, 2009)

Outside my window...a peaceful snowstorm
I am thinking...about if and how to carve my pumpkin
I am thankful for...my mother.
From the kitchen...tonight....brown rice and a big wok full of veggies: bell peppers, broccoli, crimini mushrooms, carrots, and edamame
I am wearing...felted handknit slippers from my mom
I am creating...really beautiful socks...but suffering from single-sock-syndrome
I am reading...Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, a bit behind the group for last month's bookclub selection, but thoroughly enjoying it!
I am hoping...for a peaceful night...won't even allow myself to wish for Sadie to sleep all night...but hoping for peace, whatever that may mean for us tonight.
I am hearing...the Food Network, late night TV indulgence

Around the house...lots to read...books, magazines, newspapers
One of my favorite things...those pumpkin scented candles that I can get away with burning this time of year.
A few plans for the weekend: relaxing Friday night with the family, date night on Saturday night (dinner in downtown Denver and Steve Martin with the Steep Canyon Rangers at the Paramount Theater), and movies with my brother and Mari on Sunday (we're revisiting our two favorite movies from when we were kids and Mari's making her specialty hot beef sandwiches!) Yeah!!
Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Hi Rachel! I saw your hubby and baby at the mailbox the other day. Sadie is adorable! Didn't say anything but hi to him, didn't want him to think I was a weirdo knowing your little ones name and all! That always gets me when someone I don't know knows my kids name.... just wanted to stop by and say hi! By the way love your positive thinking on your blog. It's been hard for me lately to be positive so it's nice to read your blog and hopefully it will inspire me.
