Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside My Window. . . the darkness is thick and cold. I can hear the neighbor's car idling and car doors slamming, yet I can see nothing.

I am thinking... about the up-coming election. This election will definitely affect the future of America. I pray that every voter casts a ballot based not on party or personalities but on research and qualifications.

I am thankful... that the "bug" I had last week has finally run its course.

In the kitchen... the dishwasher has finished its cycle and needs emptying.

I am wearing... a blue and black dress.

I am creating... a twined rug that my sister requested for Christmas. I didn't do much work on it this past week.

I am going... to cast-on a cardigan sweater for my great-niece's American Girl Doll. She requested one for Christmas.

I am reading... nothing at the moment. I need to go to the library.

I am hoping... to finish the twined rug this week and to start a sweater for my great-niece's American Girl doll.

I am hearing... country music from the clock radio in my bedroom. Often, it does not wake me. Sub-consciously, I hear the music, and I am lulled back to sleep. The radio plays for two hours and then shuts itself off.

One of my favorite things... my computer and the internet. I love to research topics that pop into my mind. The internet gives me access to the largest library imaginable.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: a) meet with PH support group co-leader and prepare display boards for November, b) lunch with two friends, c) prepare PH items for weekend health fair booth.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Sisters are friends that God picks for us. He did a wonderful job picking my two sisters: Evelyn is my oldest (10 years older) sister, and Marilyn is 8 years older than me. Even though we live hundreds of miles apart, we manage to get together at least once a year. Both Evelyn (everyone in the family calls her Sis) and Marilyn love to quilt. I dabble at quilting because it gives me something to share with them, but I prefer knitting.

  1. It's hard to get up in the morning when it's still dark outside.

  2. Lately I've been seeing the pre-dawn hours more than I care to, as the cat has been waking me early. In the summer, she's left outside at night, but as the temps start dropping at night, I make her come indoors. I just wish she liked to sleep in a little. ;-)

    I also love the internet. I know there's a lot that is bad on it, but there is a wealth of good as well, such as meeting interesting people like you! :-)

    I love the picture of you and your sisters. I have always envied women who have sisters. It's the one thing in life that I always really wanted but didn't get. You are blessed! ;-)

  3. Nancy,
    Glad that bug is gone...

    I love the pics of you girls..I am the middle of 3 girls as well..

    Have a great week..I do not know how you can get out of bed and it is dark and sure it is cold there as well...LOL..I would just cover up and snooze a little longer...

    Take care


  4. I love the picture of you with your sisters and I agree. Sisters are the friend God picks. I tell my girls that God gave them three sisters each so they would always have friends. They love each other and my sisters and I love each other. I don't know what I'd do without them.
