The Simple Woman's Daybook: October 19, 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 of the 'everyday moments'."

FOR TODAY ~ October 19th from Lorie's Daybook

Outside my window ~ dark and cold for this time of year, we had record cold last night

I am thinking ~ that I have such very special blogger friends who have said such wonderful things about me on Jennifer's blog (
Eighty MPH Mom) since she featured me.

I am thankful for ~ the support The Hubs gives me in everything I do

I am wearing ~ capri jeans and a t-shirt, I actually have socks on tonight :-) because the temperature has dropped so low

I am remembering ~ picking out pumpkins with the boys {it was Alex's job to find 4 pumpkins that represented each of us}; and buying apples from Bishop's Orchard to make apple pie and apple crisp, plus the delicious warm apple cider donuts that they had... mmmmm

I am going ~ physical therapy (or as I prefer to call it "physical torture") twice a week now

I am reading ~ (still) The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Anne Shaffer and Annie Barrows

I am hoping ~ it warms back up, a bit... I don't like the cold - I know we complained about the oppressive heat, but it dropped 40 degrees overnight... that's just WAY too much. It needs to go back up about 20 degrees, somewhere around 80 is great!!

On my mind ~ what we are going to do about selling our current house, to try and buy a new house in the Active Adult Community we toured over the weekend

From the learning rooms ~ trying to learn more & more on how to increase traffic to promote my blog, and learn how to write better (my son and my husband think I'm a wonderful writer, but they really don't count!).

Noticing that ~ the holidays seem to come faster each year - I can't believe there are so many Christmas decorations out already and Halloween hasn't even passed yet

Pondering these words ~ from The Hubs after my first physical therapy appointment and I could barely move the next day: "So you're all better now, wanna take the dog on a run around the block?"

From the kitchen ~ delicious spaghetti with tomato sauce with sausage and fresh basil from my window sill and a wonderful red wine from Italy

Around the house ~ LOTS of Halloween decorations

One of my favorite things ~ being greeted by Nano (my Yorkie) when I come back from my P.T. appointment - he jumps up and down and gives me lots of kisses, and makes these little sounds that lets me know that he missed me, it is so cute and feels really good

From my picture journal ~ The Love of My Life.....

Don't forget to head on over to Peggy's blog so you can blog-hop to the other participants and to leave a link to your post.

Until next time..... Lorie
