The Simple Woman's Daybook for 11/21/2011

FOR TODAY   November 21, 2011 ...

Outside my window...
cold, grey, and rainy.

I am thinking... about pastor's sermon yesterday discussing the ordinariness in the Christian faith.

I am thankful... for a wonderful church where the gospel is preached.

From the learning rooms... nothing.  We're on break this week!

In the kitchen... that's a very very good question.  Maybe beans?

I am wearing... jammies, but soon my sweatsuit and warm socks so I can be creating

I am creating... a clean basement.  At least the kids side which is a grand disaster.

I am going... probably nowhere. 

I am wondering... how long it'll take today.

I am reading... North and South by Gaskell.  It's pretty dark and heavy.  I'm also going to start reviewing WTM as I prepare for the 2012 academic year.

I am hoping... for a wonderful week of Thanksgiving.

I am looking forward to... Thanksgiving with both our families.

I am hearing... children making beds. 

Around the house... the ironing is almost caught up.  A Thanksgiving miracle?

I am pondering... the takeover of the work of the church by the government.  Fascinating discussion from Sunday School yesterday.

One of my favorite things... history.  That Sunday School discussion was so intellectually stimulating and intriguing.  I want to know more.

A few plans for the rest of the week: errands, cooking with my Mom on Wednesday, Thanksgiving twice, the Muppet movie?, finish Yuletide planning, Advent starts!, cleaning the basement ... should be super busy!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...still no camera ...
