Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY........
Monday, October 27, 2008
Outside my is quiet and dark, at daybreak two deer were at the pond.
I am thinking...what a busy and full week this will be.
I am thankful for...fall, which seems to have finally arrived yesterday.
From the kitchen...pilau (pronounced per low), an ethnic meal from Dad's family. Jacob is giving a speech on it this morning. He needed enough for thirty classmates to taste.
I am wearing...sweats, remember fall finally arrived.
I am creating...a fall post and pumpkin butter.
I am orchestra rehearsal (a most worthy way to spend my time).
I am reading...A Woman's Guide to Hormone Health: The Creator's Way For Managing Menopause, by Ron Eaker,MD.
I am hoping...that I can find answers and some solutions from this book I am reading.
I am hearing...the train in the cold still morning.
Around the house...things are a mess and need to be put back together.
One of my favorite things...a new day, His mercies are new also.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... cleaning, no school co-ops. Football practice, and orchestra are the only outings. The cool weather will inspire us to get busy, things are changing. A steadfastness to prayer for our great country. Eight days of constantly crying out that God will be merciful and turn the hearts of His people back to Him.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...

The girls, with cousin Libby, The 2007 Cotton Pickin' Fair, Gay, Georgia. A whole lot of fun was had by all!

Oh that cotton 'pickin' fair looks so enticing! I love the sheep & wool festivals being a new spinner. And have never seen cotton like that. By the time we get it it is a tee-shirt or something! Yes, I am ernestly praying too.~~I love pumpkin butter but rarely eat what to do?! =)
