Daybook October 30

October 30, 2009

Outside my window... the rain is gently falling.

I am hoping... it moves more quickly here than it did on other parts of the US

I am thinking... about going to bed. It's been a long day

I am thankful for... a husband who takes charge of supper on Fridays

I am wearing... Black and white. White shoes, black knit comfy pants and black/white "silky" blouse. I just took my black and white earrings off.

I am creating... absolutely nothing tonight. But, it's late. I did win a set of patterns off eBay, so I will be creating soon.

I am going... to post this, then go to bed.

I am reading... "The Unbreakable Child" by Kim Michele Richardson

I am hearing... my Beloved talking to the television. A welcome sound since I rarely get to hear it.

On my mind... I'm wondering how much I'll get accomplished tomorrow. An early night should mean an early morning.

From the kitchen... I found two excellent chuck roasts on sale today. Can't wait to cook them!

One of my favorite things... small, fluffy kittens

Daybook October 29

October 29, 2009

Outside my window... again, it's dark. It seems I get to these in the evenings rather than in the mornings.

I am thinking... I have too much to do and not enough time.

I am thankful for... warmer weather today.

I am wearing... Jeans and a blouse. Nothing spectacular.

I am remembering... the first time I laid eyes on my 12 year old puppy.

I am going... to work a full day tomorrow.

I am reading... blogs on prim decor

I am hoping... I can find time to do some sewing this weekend.

Noticing that... the dishes aren't getting done without me.

From the kitchen... thinking about throwing some chili together,

One of my favorite things~ A fresh, crisp, Granny Smith apple.

Daybook - October 28, 2009

October 28, 2009

Outside my window... It's cloudy, but I can see "sunshine" in the leaves that are changing from green to yellow

I am thinking... that's it's already the middle of the week and I've not accomplished very much. I hate to be in bed already when my Beloved comes home, but I don't get up early enough the next morning and that's my day off. I really need to figure something out.. soon. Well, that didn't go as planned. I just spent a delightful 1 1/2 hours chatting on the phone with a friend.

I am thankful for... good friends

From the kitchen... going to try drying bananas today.

I am wearing... jeans, running shoes and a YW camp tee

I am creating... a box of stuff for goodwill

I am reading... still looking for something good. So far, the books I've picked up are not meeting minimum requirements this week.

I am hoping... for more sun tomorrow, even if I have to work.

I am hearing... afternoon traffic. My home stays pretty quiet.

One of my favorite things...Water Globes! I'm replacing all my other collections with them. Of course, they can "house" my other collections within their globes.

Daybook Day - October 27, 2009

October 27, 2009...
Outside my window... Lots of rain and drizzle.
It's been this way all day

I am thinking... I better go put a load of laundry in the washer.

I am thankful for... my Beloved putting gas in the car yesterday
so I wouldn't have to do it today.

I am wearing... a too-light weight blouse and soft, warm, knit pants

I am going... to start the wood stove in a few minutes

I am reading... lots of blogs on prim decor.

I am hoping... I can accomplish some of what I want
to get done tonight.

I am hearing... rain dripping down the window.

One of my favorite things... good instrumental piano music.

A few plans for the rest of the week: fill several boxes of clutter
to go to GW, turn a dresser around in a doorway so the drawers
are accessible to the room they are actually needed in.
Still working on this... I'm hoping to get it started tonight

Daybook Day 1 - October 26, 2009

October 26, 2009...
Outside my window... It's night, so it's dark. There is traffic breaking the peacefulness.
I am thinking... about how much I love my Beloved and how
much he does to care for me.
I am thankful for... the wood stove and
the heat emitting from it. It's certainly taking the chill off.
I am wearing... the inaugural local Bluegrass Festival T-Shirt
and soft, warm, knit pants
I am creating... dish towels
I am going... to bed soon
I am reading... nothing at the moment.
I finished the latest books just yesterday.
I am hoping... my Beloved gets the run he wants
when they bid next Monday.
I am hearing... my dog panting
One of my favorite things... Real Hot Chocolate.
Not that fake kind where all you have to do is add water.
A few plans for the rest of the week: fill several boxes of clutter
to go to GW, turn a dresser around in a doorway so the drawers
are accessible to the room they are actually needed in.

Hot Chocolate - The Childhood Way

OK, so I've been drinking Hot Chocolate using Swiss Miss Instant for years and years.

A couple of weeks ago, the Save-A-Lot in Radcliff had a sale on Nesquik. Nice little packages that have lots of chocolate in them. They were $.25 each. I bought 4 and now wish I had been greedy and taken all they had left.

The other night I was freezing and didn't want herbal tea or other hot beverage (I don't drink coffee or regular tea). My tubs of Nesquik just happened to be in my line of site and the light bulb went on. Hot Chocolate with real milk! Now, I did take a modern short cut and heated it in the Microwave, but man-oh-man! I thought I had gone back in time about 35 years.

The hot chocolate mix in the little envelopes are now delegated to when I am totally out of milk, unless I'm at my mom's where Swiss Miss moved in.
