The Simple Woman

FOR TODAY, November 17, 2008

Outside my window...there is a slight breeze. It is a clear day, I can see the local mountains. Leaves are in the driveway. So are the newpapers that I forgot to get this morning.

I am thinking...that I wish my headache would go away. I am not getting anything done today.

I am thankful for...birthdays. They are always happy times.

From the learning rooms...nothing yet today. Like I said, I have a headache and I am having a hard time being motivated today.

From the kitchen...a batch of quick rise honey-wheat bread is cooking in the bread machine.

I am wearing...jeans and a print shirt. No shoes.

I am creating...lists of things that need to get done today.

I am eat a light lunch and then go lay down to see if that will help my headache.

I am reading...Where Are You Now, by Mary Higgins Clark. I just finished Like Water for Chocolate. Watching the movie a couple of weekends ago made me want to read the book. The movie follows the book pretty closely, but I gained more insight into the movie after reading the book.

I am hoping...that my headache goes away soon. I think it might be time for more Excedrin.

I am hearing...A and G talk about the newspapers they are bringing in for me.

Around the house...I hear D playing the piano. She is getting Christmas songs ready.

One of my favorite niece, Erin. She is so sweet.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Dance classes as always, a 60th birthday party for my sister-in-law's father at Lake Arrowhead, the Feast of Christ the King.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...My son and godson/nephew playing Guitar Hero at my daughter's birthday party. A look into something that might be in their future? My brother can play seven musical instruments that I can think of. Our kids are musically inclined as well.
