The Simple Woman's Daybook

Peggy over at The Simple Woman's Daybook is the gracious host here.

For Today... October 6, 2009

Outside my window...It is cloudy, grey and wet outside. Rainy today, looking forward to seeing the sun tomorrow around here!

I am thinking... that I feel a little"bi-polar" after watching the Packer game last night with Brett Favre having a great game... for the Vikings--- something's wrong with the universe... :/ But I am lovin' and laughing at those Sears commercials with Brett...:) I am also thinking how fun it was having our sons Nathan and Tim hear last night to munch away and watch the game with their Dad and Amanda and me:)

I am thankful for...financial aid for Amanda's and Jonathan's college. And that all six of our children have been able to get a college education-- well we're still at it:)

From the kitchen... stir-fried chicken breasts with veggies.

I am wearing... jammies and robe-- toasty:)

I am hoping...for more sunshine this fall- so many grey days in a row now--- we get so many grey days during the winter, so just hoping for a bright, sunny fall:)

I am hearing... tires hitting wet pavement and a beep beep beep as some big equipment vehicle goes backward.

I am praying... and thanking God for answered prayers.

Around the house... we got things kinda torn up around here-- in the middle of sorting and purging from the garage to the bedrooms. Look out good will!:)

One of my favorite things...a little boy in a flannel shirt and blue jeans-- those little blue jeans just make me smile:) see picture below....*

A few plans for the rest of the week...keeping on with the reorganizing and sprucing up.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...*

Such a little "happy Jack" - although his name is Sam:)

Hey Sweetie!! I'll try and send some sunshine your way!! I couldn't handle the gray days if they just kept coming!! We get one here and there, and I'm always so thankful that the sun pops back out, even if it's hot!!

I would be squeezing that little flannel and blue jean man if he was mine, that's for sure!! What a cutie!!

Have a great evening, my friend!!
Love ya,

If I could package up some of our sunshine, I would send it to you! It seems that out of all the seasons, fall is the most beautiful in this area. How great for your kids to get financial aide. That is how all of my family got a college education. My folks provided room and board and we got scholarships and financial aide. God is good! Loved the pics of little Sam. Such a sweet countanence he has! Very handsome little guy! Love, Elena

What a darling little guy!

I want to thank you for visiting my blog yesterday and for the encouraging words that you left. Some days, I just get down about the situation.

God really used you to speak to me. I posted about it here:


Thank you and be blessed!
