The Simple Woman's Daybook

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

For Today... October 26, 2009 Good morning!

Outside my window...we are still having gray skies with rain in the forecast. By the way, when I was in grade school, we were taught to spell it "g r e y ". I looked it up and found that the American spelling is g r a y- and the English (England) way in g r e y. So both are correct spellings.
One of the questions regarding this online was written: " I heard it can be grey or gray witch one is it,or is it both?" (Did you catch the misspelled word in this sentence?:)

I am thinking... that I function better when the sun is shining...

I am thankful for... healthy and happy grandchildren.

From the kitchen...making tacos for dinner and baking some apple pies today- gotta use up those apples.

I am wearing...still in my jammies and robe:)

I am hoping...that we have a mild winter like I read that we should have this year due to
El Niño.

I am hearing... a garbage truck gathering its load on our street. Our city now has these new-fangled trucks with a big hydralic arm that picks up our special garbage cans. The driver stays in the truck and and guides the arm to pick up the garbage can, bring it high up over the truck, and dump it into the back. Then it sets the can back down on our yard- really a pretty slick operation. It's actually pretty fun to watch:) And I'm sure it saves a lot of back problems for the employees!

I am remembering... when we were growing up--how much fun my dad used to have getting his kids to taste a persimmon that he had just plucked from our tree. We older kids ( who had already been through this mouth-puckering experience ) would stand quietly by to see their reaction. Have you ever tasted a persimmon? Some people like them- my dad did--not me:)

I am praying
... for family and friends...

Around the house... working in the downstairs family room- the computer area needs major organizing.

On my mind...that I need to do more reading...

One of my favorite things... learning new things about my hubby's childhood:)

A few plans for the rest of the week...making more applesauce- lots more apples.

Pondering these this song always inspires me and make me tear up when I think that several of our children (including DsIL) have been a witness for the Word on five continents and that the seed of the Gospel has been sown there through their witness of Christ's love.

He Reigns- sung by the Newsboys:
It's the song of the redeemed
Rising from the African plain
It's the song of the forgiven
Drowning out the Amazon rain
The song of Asian believers
Filled with God's holy fire
It's every tribe, every tongue, every nation
A love song born of a grateful choir

It's all God's children singin'
Glory, glory, hallelujah
He reigns,He reigns...

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