The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY November 17, 2008

Outside my is cold and black...just 12:30 a.m. I haven't been home from work long

I am thinking...I really should be in bed and not here at the computer

I am thankful residents in the nursing home who have become my extended family...I love something about all of them!

From the kitchen...We will have left over Chinese food as my husband bought too much for just one meal.

I am shorts and a grey t-shirt...what I wear to bed!

I am creating...this blog post for the moment

I am bed when I am finished here

I am reading...S is for Silence....haven't finished it yet

I am hoping...tomorrow's weather is as beautiful as today's was. It was well into the 60's here today...

I am hearing...blissful, peaceful silence

Around the house...I still have many things to do to get ready for the family coming for Thanksgiving.

One of my favorite pumpkin pie with whipped cream

A few plans for the rest of the week:off Tuesday, work Wednesday, off Thursday, work Friday and then the whole weekend off and Paige and Justin will be here.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...This was taken this summer in front of the tree where my husband and I were married 12 years ago...we call it the wedding tree...It is at Lake Isabel in Colorado


  1. I just found your blog from the Simple Woman's Daybook. Great list of simple things - and I am jealous of your warm weather. :-) It was 33 here in MI yesterday. Have a blessed day, Tammy

  2. I had to come right over and tell you how your 'avatar' caught my eye. I love that..the older lady on the swing. Thats me you know! I enjoyed reading your daybook...and am impressed with your love of your work at the nursing home. My Mom was in a nh for 4 years before she passed on to be with God. It was a bittersweet time for sure and it is heartwarming to know there are ladies like yourself who become their familes too. Thank you!

  3. Lord Have Mercy,

    The High today was 43 here!!!! I wish I had shorts and a T-Shirt on!!!


  4. Yummy...Pumpkin pie. I love the concept of a wedding tree. How romantic is that :>)

  5. It sounds like you have everything well planned Paula. I work, and I find I have to be very well organised, otherwise important things can get overlooked. I like the idea of The Simple Woman's Daybook, a great way to get down your thoughts for the day. x

  6. Thanks for stopping by! The tree photo is awesome as well as the idea! That is cool!
    I love your thankful list! I am waaaaay behind on mine...thanks for inspiring me!!!

  7. Thank you SO much for coming by to see me and for your prayres and well wishes!!! If you ever get a chance to come to Myrtle Beach, look me up!!

  8. paula,

    thanks for the award and sorry it took me so long to pick it up and thank you

    most of all, thanks for choosing to read my crazy blog filled with insane ramblings of a crazy, almost 51 y/o girl who is fighting to stay sane in an insane world!!

  9. I love pumpkin pie and Cool Whip as well. Mmmm. Ah, warm nice.
