The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside My Window… It is obvious that fall is here and winter is on it’s way as it is darker and darker when I get up in the mornings. It’s supposed to be cooler here today and there is a light rain falling.
I am thinking… I want to finish organizing and get ahead of the clutter for a change.
From the learning room… I will use this are for myself since I don’t home school. I am learning a new software program.
I am thankful for… hubby still continuing to heal and getting the fall chores done before the city’s pick up deadline.
From the kitchen… I’m developing more new recipes to finish the next cookbook.
I am wearing… faded blue jeans and polo shirt, my normal Monday bowling team attire.
I am creating…a mess in the family room sorting out a few boxes that have been still packed since we moved in here. They never got unpacked because of the mold problem. I am STILL doing this – what a long process. This answer I hope will change in the next couple of weeks.
I am going… bowling, running errands and watching Monday night football with hubby.
I am STILL reading… multiple cook books this week.
I am STILL hoping… to clear a few more problems from my desk this week.
I am hearing… the hum of the dishwasher I forgot to run last night, the soft purr of the washing machine and the brewmaster on its last gurgles so I can have my coffee.
Around the house… I realize I have a TON of trim molding to still do.
One of my favorite things… fall / winter recipes for stews and soups.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Paring down the bookcases and cleaning closets for charity.

Here are the picture thoughts I am sharing a couple of the fall pictures I took this weekend.

Hi, Tamy,

I love this post!
Are you putting together a cook book? If so, how exciting! I read cook books for fun. 😛

Thanks for commenting on my Give Me 5 Monday post. 🙂


I wish we had fall weather here too, but unfortunately it’s just the same ol’ heat LOL

Good luck with the organizing, hope you get everything done 🙂

ACK! Paring down the bookcases is a hard job for me. I take a book down and then open it up and then decide I can’t part with this one. Back it goes…and then the cycle continues. LOL!

Love the autumn leaves!
