I am going... to be working in the cookbook binder this week
I am wondering... how it is that women can be so mesmerized with things, that in the end only leave us cold and empty. This makes me sad and I wonder what could I say to help them turn their eyes away, just long enough to know and to feel the hope that I have come to personally know and that has never left me cold, empty or looking for more. Although there was that time...
I am reading... The Lost Art of Practicing His Presence by James W. Goll
I am hoping... to replenish my crock of pinecones that I use in the cookstove to begin fires.
I am learning... to put first things first and the rest will fall in place
Around the house... cleaning up the chicken house, putting in new sawdust and putting the window frames back on for cold weather
A favorite quote for today..."There it was back a lane...I did not know the store was open as I saw no horse and buggies there, but the door had an "open" sign hanging from it! I figured later we were just early as you could hear the clip clop of hooves carrying patrons up the lane.
Inside were the typical goodies, bolts of solid cloth, pretty glassware, kitchen gadgets like food mills and utensils, homemade toys and to my interest, books! Towards the front of the store was their coal stove, warm and inviting for the chilly morning. I made my rounds spying some deep dish pie plates for 2 dollars each and I put two very needed ones in my basket. I gathered up a new dishcloth with blue trim, 3 sheets of stickers for keeping correspondences, two books in the "My First Little House Books" series, Going West and Sugar Snow and Henner's Lydia by Marguerite de Angeli. We paid for our purchases and were on our way which by now brought horses and Amishmen to their fields.
We saw a father and his children gleaning the corn that was left behind with each having a bucket for gathering...right down to the smallest one of no more than 3 years with her very own, little blue pail."

One of my favorite things... writing down the now to read later in the future
A few plans for this week: a day date with my daughters to pantry stock even more, an outing with my dear husband to just enjoy the season, ladies mini-church, and a movie night.
