The Simple Woman's Daybook {December Edition}

For Today

Looking out my window... after a lovely night's sleep with the full super moon shining down through the skylight onto my pillow...it is a beautiful day

I am thinking... another cool coffee shop and in my own backyard at that!

I am thankful... for those big answers to prayer that could have only come from a God who is watching and listening.

One of my favorite things... trying out new hot drinks

I am wearing... navy knit pants, navy and white comfy top and long navy sweater vest

I am creating... pretty Christmas spaces now that all of the shopping is finished. Always the same-always different

I am watching...

Year by the Sea and squealing with joy!! 

I am reading... this...just as soon as it arrives. Just listed, just ordered!

I am listening to... lots of Strait

I am hoping... for snow flurries very soon

I am learning... how special it is to have your own studio/work space

In the kitchen... a new Keurig and coffee/tea bar is set up

Board Room

entering the serious stage of getting one of these...this is the year---> 2018
