Can you believe I haven't don't one of these blogs since the 24th of July? I guess it is time for one, yeah?
Simple Woman's Daybook: 20NOV11
Outside my window...I am outside my window. Pop and I are sitting outside on the carport, waiting for our dinner to finish grilling. We're having barbecue ham, corn on the cob and brussells sprouts. When I bring it all in--and while I'm getting Pop dressed for bed--I'll pop a few rolls in the oven and we'll have a nice colorful meal! But for now, he and I are enjoying the air getting a bit crisper and cooler, a few lingering crickets chirping, and the very, very end of the sunset. By the way, the clouds are moving very swiftly over our heads. Sometimes, it is just so amazing how nature works, yeah?
I am thinking..that I am really enjoying the approach of Autumn/Winter. I'm hoping that next year by this time, I will be living somewhere that has Four Seasons! But we'll see. I'm staying here until Pop doesn't need me anymore, as far as I know.
I am thankful for...the many people who have been praying for me during this ovary/cyst scare I've been going through the past two months.
From the learning rooms...I'm learning how to use my new computer. Every single brand is different.
From the kitchen...I'll be making the Ford family Thankgiving tradition 'Cranberry Salad' on Wednesday.
I am wearing...capris and a green blouse.
I am creating...knitted caps.
I am going...to try to be less selfish. What a challenge, yeah?
I am reading...a book about some English lady who moves to the American West.
I am hoping...that I don't let myself down and spend the Four Seasons money on things that aren't either a) an emergency and b) moving someplace with Four Season.
I am hearing...crickets and the sound of highway traffic.
Around the house...nothing much!
One of my favorite things...playing my guitar.
A few plans for the rest of the week: preparing for my Thanksgiving/One Year Vacation weekend in Galveston this weekend. Oh, and Thanksgiving Dinner with Rachel Wright and her familia.
A photograph for your consideration:
I took this picture last Saturday at the end of my work day. This kind of light is what I call 'otherworldly.' I imagine that this is what the sky looks like if you live in Brigadoon.
