The Simple Woman's Daybook - October 26, 2009



Peggy began this meme The Simple Woman's Daybook in her words:

"Would you like to linger on the simple things...then join me and many others in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those who are focusing on simplicity...beauty of the 'everyday moments'."



FOR TODAY...October 26th from Lorie's Daybook

Outside my window ~ hot, hazy, humid... you would think it was July or August and not October.

I am thinking ~ it is getting so close to Halloween, I better get my baggies made for the 200 or so kiddies that will be coming to the house.

I am thankful for ~ the fact that it is only 39 days until Alexander come down for his visit to see us - Yippee!!

I am wearing ~ denim skirt, Halloween scrub top (left over from my working days) they are SO comfy and 100% cotton, and of course - barefoot!

I am remembering ~ it is ONLY 20 days before Nikolaus is deployed.

I am going ~ to a Halloween party on Wednesday, Bill is going as Uncle Sam and I am going as Auntie Samantha.

I am reading ~ Reader's Digest.

I am hoping ~ this physical therapy will stop giving me migraines and start helping my neck and back.

On my mind ~ every time I turn on the news, I hear news of soldiers killed in Afghanistan and my heart stops for those poor families left behind, and then for my poor little boy.

From the learning rooms ~ how to stretch our social security checks even more and more, and what we are going to do next year now that there will be no Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for 2010.

Noticing that ~ there are not as many people decorating for Halloween in our community this year - I think the economy has caught up to everyone in every way.

Pondering these words ~ Spoken by my youngest son, Alexander: "I have the best birthday present for you... Rachel and I will be coming down for a visit the first week in December to see you and Pop." I responded that if he could see me, he would see that I was doing The Happy Dance!!

From the kitchen ~ grilled chicken from KFC, because you can get a free piece today - that's one of my favorite four-letter words: FREE.

Around the house ~ gotta start getting things organized if we are really planning on moving at the beginning of the year... it's still up in the air, but we can't wait until the last minute.

One of my favorite things ~ CHOCOLATE... so I love Halloween time.

From my picture journal ~ This is the entrance to my front door... There are other decorations on our front porch, but you'll just have to wait until Halloween to see them all - as they look better in the dark {and I don't want the little hoodlums to steel them, we have had a bit of vandalism in town, boo!!}






Make sure when you are done....

Until next time..... Lorie

Love the ghost on the doorstep, so cute. I'm so happy your son will be visiting you. My prayers and thoughts go out to both of your boys for their safety. Being a mother myself, I don't know how you do it but my prayers are with you too!!

200 kids? Holly Molly Girlie! You'll have to share what you put in those baggies! I so miss the days when you could pass out popcorn balls. Loved making them with my mom!

The door looks so welcoming. I think the ghost is cute but I love the mouse jack o lantern. Cute!!!!

Free is also one of my favorite four letter words along with love, and oh that other f word just a tad more colorfull.

I am excited for your son's visits and the posts and photos that are sure to follow.
