Outside My Window...
the clothesline stands empty, the trees and gardens are bare and the
swing is still. Morning is just dawning.

I am thinking...
How did the mother's of years ago get everything done, keep up
with correspondences, make delicious meals and
maintain a happy home, without going crazy!

From the kitchen...
the blueberry muffins are cooling and waiting.

I am wearing...
jeans and a soft blue, zip up hoodie over my top with wool slipper socks

I am creating...
Our Thanksgiving menu and beginning to work
on Christmas projects!

I am reading...
"The Dry Divide" by Ralph Moody and trying to read
"Raising Dragons" by Bryan Davis (at Travis's request)

I am hearing...
The rooster announce the new day, the tea kettle softly
reminding me that my tea is only minutes away, and the soft breathing
of my kids as they begin to wake up.

Around the house..
the kids are beginning to wake up, the cats are still curled up
in balls of fluff, the dog is sleeping with his paws covering his face,
the furnace just started again.

One of my favorite things...
the quiet of the morning and
the aroma of fresh baked goods.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Travis's birthday dinner
Sit down to write a letter or two
Make a few appointment phone calls
Gather craft items for a class next week
Clean, clean and clean some more!

To take a peek at more day book entries

Melanie, your blog is so heartwarming! I've been so busy for the last several months that I haven't taken time to read anybody's blogs, and I've missed so much; I have some serious catching up to do.

I really loved The Simple Woman's Daybook. Your entries beneath the titles are so descriptive, I can see them in my mind. So nice!
