The Simple Woman's Daybook {October Edition}

For Today

Looking out my window... it is beginning to look a little like fall. I have loved turning the page on this calendar my daughter gave me as a gift.

I am thinking... about the upcoming retreat I take twice a year with my girls. The week in May and the week in October are my favorite times of the entire year. A place to fully think, ponder, pray and renew.

I am thankful... for Beth Moore, her ministry and her faith.

One of my favorite things... 

spending late afternoons in the heart of my hometown

I am wearing... (from Sunday) new pair of dark wash SONOMA jeans in a size down (feels so good), black long-sleeve tee, blue/green and black scarf and sandals.

I am creating... places for autumn

I am watching... Poldark

I am reading... An Unfinished Marriage by Joan Anderson

I am listening to... You Say

I am hoping... fall lasts a loooooong time

I am learning... that if you wait long enough you can find the perfect holder for your groceries. Bought three of these beauties from Creative Green Life and they are the best. They fit perfectly in my cart and since the store has this little hand held gadget that reads every bar code on your item as you shop, it makes check out a breeze without removing your groceries. Yippee!

In the garden... all cleaned and freshly plowed over for another growing season

In the kitchen...
