The Simple Woman's Daybook,Dec. 8, 2008

Outside my window... I see a cloudy, gray and cold sky. There is still a little trace of snow on the ground.

I am thinking... about Mom, It has been 1 year ago today that she left this world for a better place in Heaven, She is now free from the wrath of Alzheimers Disease.

I am thankful for... Having had the wonderful Mother that I did, she was my best friend.

From the kitchen... I see a lot of baking ahead of me for the holidays.

I am wearing... comfortable slacks and pullover top.

I am creating... 2 new blogs..1 for recipes and the other to sell my handmade items plus the stash of supplies that I will no longer need.

I am going... to go back and finish up decorating the apartment for Christmas.

I am reading... Old recipe books

I am hoping...God will help me through these next few days of remembering mom and make me as strong as she was.

I am hearing... the humm of the computer

Around the house... All is quiet right now but will be busy soon with us (dh & me) sorting through boxes of ornaments.

One of my favorite things...the smells of Christmas

A few plans for the rest of the week: to make Kevin's Christmas present and work on the 2 new blogs.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

You can create your own Daybook by visiting The Simple Woman.

God Bless,

I enjoyed your daybook, Brenda. Sounds like you're going to be a very busy gal. Love the idea of a recipe blog. Linda Parker does that, too, and its so nice!

That picture is just dreamy.

Christmas blessings,
