Simple Woman’s Daybook


For Today, November 17, 2008…
Outside My Window… it’s sunny and cold.  The garden is still sadly unattended.  It needs to be tidied up for the winter.
I am thinking… about my meetings with Michaels’ math teacher and learning enrichment center staff tomorrow.  
I am thankful for…  a wonderful birthday dinner out at Terroni last night, to celebrate Z and A’s birthdays this week.
From the kitchen... I’ve got a bowl of great northern beans soaking for my first attempt at homemade baked beans.  There’s also an organic chicken ready to go into the oven for dinner tonight.
I am wearing… lack trousers, black shell, red embroidered blouse, black socks.
I am creating… a sweater in brown heather, that I started last spring.  I have half a sleeve and the front/neckline finishing left to do.
I am going…to prep my chicken and make some bread stuffing.
I am reading…  The Origin of Species by Nino Ricci.
I am hoping… that I have the courage to continue on my Couch-to-5k plan as the weather gets colder.
I am hearing… Vivaldi’s Gloria, which I will have the opportunity to sing with the Aradia Ensemble at their Christmas concert.
Around the house… the laundry seems to be overtaking me.  I need to get back on my load-a-day schedule.
One of my favorite things... is a hot bath with epsom salts and a good book. 
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Tomorrow is the first of our parish’s advent bible studies on Luke.  I also have meetings at Michael’s school in the afternoon.  Wednesday is Alex and Z’s actual birthday…must bake something.  Thurday is a free concert by the Ottawa Bach Choir at noon at Massey Hall.  On Sunday, Father Larry is taking the choir out for lunch after mass.
Here is picture thought I am sharing
My birthday boys at dinner last night.
