The Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY October 12th....
Outside my window...It was gray and drizzly. Now the sun is trying to peek out. That seems to be the theme this fall around these parts.
I am thinking... about the day's plans and how I can be more efficient and work in more sewing time.
I am thankful for... my crock pot! I've been using it lots since we got the new insert.
From the learning rooms... Letter of the week "Cc", studying Huck Finn, Autumn unit study, and the usual basics.
From the kitchen... nothing going on there yet, but will be setting up the crock pot with a brown rice, kielbasa, and veggie casserole for supper.
I am wearing... 3 tiered brown skirt, green tunic with embroidery along the neck.
I am creating... a lap quilt for my grandmother's birthday.
I am going... to be spending as much time at my sewing machine as possible.
I am reading... Just my Bible in the a.m, right now. No time for anything else!
I am hoping... to finish piecing the top to the afore mentioned quilt by the end of this week.
I am hearing... The washer and dryer both running.
Around the house... general picking up, and I have a ton of laundry to fold.
One of my favorite things... knowing summer and the hot humid weather is over, and loving the crisp, cool air of fall.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Make up violin lessons this afternoon, regular lessons on Friday; getting ready for the Harvest Dinner at church on Saturday; making an orthodontist appointment for Benjamin; and of course... LOTS of sewing! I'm feeling the deadline for this project for sure!
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
