Simple Woman's Daybook

I realized that I haven't done a day book in awhile and missed it.  I thought today would be a good day to do one again.  If you'd like to participate, you can go to Peggy's page to get the prompts and to link up.  Enjoy!

FOR TODAY, November 15, 2010

Outside my's overcast and I think the sun is trying to break through.  I'm in MA and most of the trees are bare and a little sad looking.  It's not too cold out-I was comfortable in a sweater with no coat.

I am some things change and others stay the same.  I'm in my hometown where I spent my childhood and worked for a few years in my 20's.  I went to the grocery store over the weekend and ran into 2 former coworkers and saw several former students.  I was expecting it but was still a little surprised that it happened after being away for more than a year.  The town still looks the same for the most part.  I still know my way around.

I am thankful & friends.  I had an Open House at my parent's last night and it was wonderful to see the people who came.  I felt very loved!

From the kitchen...I'm not cooking today!  At my request, my dad is making baked Mac & Cheese.  I love my dad's Mac & Cheese.  I'm going to enjoy every bite since I don't get to eat it often.  The Man doesn't like it so I don't make it at home.

I am wearing...jeans, a blue sweater and brown flats.

I am creating...I'm going to be helping my mom do some crafty projects for her walls while I'm here.  I just need her to decide what pictures she wants to use!

I am meet my mom for lunch.  I think we're going to Panera...I haven't been there in a while and I'm looking forward to it.

I am reading...I'm reading Harry Potter again.  I can't wait for Friday!

I am hoping...for good fellowship with family & friends while I'm in MA.

I am talking.  I'm in a bookstore using the free Wi-fi!

Around the house...I think The Man is doing some stuff to surprise me when I get home.  I'm looking forward to seeing what he's done!

One of my favorite things...crisp fall New England days.

A few plans for the rest of the week: seeing as many people as I can!  I'm having lunch with my former roommate, dinner with my director, dinner & bible study with mom & her 3 best friends, doing a party and having tea with a good friend.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

I love the beauty of creation!


  1. I'm excited for HP too! Since you're in the Seattle area (though not right now) are you going to the HP Exhibit at the Pacific Science Center? My hubby and I are thinking about getting tickets for when we're home for Christmas.

  2. I would LOVE to meet for coffee when I'm in town. Sadly Cafe Revista by the recruiting offices in Silverdale is closed. That used to be my favorite place to go... so if you have a fav place or just wanna meet on the base or something let me know.
