The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window... a foggy and deary night

I am thinking...  how nice a sunshiny day would be

I am thankful... for sisters and the relationship they share

I am wearing... favorite jean skirt, comfy blue and gray stripped top and wooly socks

I am creating... my Christmas list

I am going... to put my juicer to use in the new year...if only I can get my produce past my salad bowl which I am highly doubting. ...like asking a rabbit if he would rather chew his lettuce or drink it!

I am wondering... what I can add or take away from my current cooking/baking habits, always open to learning new things, to better what I create in the kitchen

I am reading... in bits and pieces, but the book is so good and this is the second time through. A book with paragraphs that I have to go back and re-read because she is living and writing about my feelings, wantings and longings.

I am hoping... that my entire family can be gathered together on Christmas eve, which will be the first time in a number of years

I am learning... that what might have worked in the past, might not work in the future

Around the house... making merry



In the kitchen... making the list of goodies my daughter and I want to bake

I am pondering... words and short phrases for the next simple woman's bingo game planned for January

A favorite quote for today... 

"The trees were tall, but I was taller, standing above them on a steep mountain slope in northern California. Moments before, I'd removed my hiking boots and the left one had fallen into those trees, first catapulting into the air when my enormous backpack toppled onto it, then skittering across the gravelly trail and flying over the edge."

*the book I placed on hold and just picked up from the library*

One of my favorite things... my little kitchen tree that sits on the bar...keeping me company as I spend time there (you can see it here)


A few plans for this week: finally getting to a favorite store for cookie baking supplies, last Christmas shopping trip and an evening out to celebrate my daughters' birthdays, December 20th and December 22nd!

A peek into one of my days from last week...
