Simple Woman's Daybook ~ November 23

FOR TODAY... from Katherine's Daybook

Outside my window... Beautiful sunshine

I am thinking...
That it is so nice to have a break from school!

I am thankful for...
Salvation by Jesus Christ!

I am wearing... jeans and a t- shirt

I am remembering... The Sooners' terrible loss to Texas Tech on Saturday. Oh, this is not to be borne!

I am going... To work on my mom's scarf for her birthday.

I am reading... "Joseph: A Man of Integrity and Forgiveness" by Chuck Swindoll

I am praying...
for the Dutcher family who lost their precious baby girl, Anne Marie, on Saturday night. God, please comfort them during this terrible time.

I am hoping...
That we have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas.

On my mind... Things I need to get done during Thanksgiving break: Piano practice, catch up on some leisurely reading, and plan Christmas activities.

Plans for the week...

Pondering these words...
"Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Psalm 100:3

From the kitchen...
Homemade Bread

Around the hou
se... An intense game of Dutch Blitz is going on in the next room.

One of my favorite things...
Knitting and Crocheting!

From my picture journal... My cute little poodle! My younger sister made this hat for him to wear at our Thanksgiving party. I don't think he enjoys wearing it!:)

Thanks Peggy for this idea.

Latest Projects and Happenings

Ever since the summer, I have been working on crocheting a Christmas afghan. I just finished it a couple of weeks ago. I have found that Granny Squares are quite easy to crochet. This was my biggest project ever, and I can't wait to have it out this Christmas season! Now, I am working on a scarf for Mom's birthday.

Today we went bowling, for the bowling alley in our town was offering a discount for homeschoolers. It was alot of fun! All the kids had a great time! This was Samuel's first time to bowl, and he had a great time. He loves to watch the Curious George show on PBS kids, and in one episode The Man with the Yellow Hat takes him bowling. So you can imagine how excited Sam was to go bowling like Curious George!

Now, I am going to watch Pride and Prejudice with Bethany and Mom!
