A Simple Woman's Daybook, October 12th


Outside my window... a brilliant sun shines down on our first real chilly morning. There was ice on the windshield when I went outside, but my tomato plants are okay.

I am thinking... ~ about my long list of chores and hoping that I will have the time and ability to complete them all.

I am thankful for... ~the strength and ability to work. The older that I get and the more health problems that plague me, the more that I marvel at the blessing of being able to stand up and balance on my legs and hips. It is a blessing to be able to work.

I am wearing... ~a gray, wrap top, long black pants, black boots and a scarf that ties in the colors and brightens things up a bit.

I am remembering... ~what I need to do..who I need to be.

I am going... ~outside right this moment and put food in the bird feeders. My little feathered friends are stopping by, finding nothing and casting accusing glances at the house (well, maybe not).

From the kitchen... ~Taco Soup for tonight, simmering tomatoes from the garden, much chopping of garden veggies for the freezer.

Around the house... ~I am creating order out of disorder, sense out of chaos, beauty in places and enjoying the quiet
From my camera...

What a great idea for a post.
It is still quite warm here...it will top 90 today...I am wearing shorts and a peasant top and no shoes...far cry from all your clothes, but there are days when I long to put on cute sweaters and long pants!
Have a great day!!

It has finally become cold here as well. Friday was the first really fall day we've had. I like it - more energy in the cooler weather. :)
