The Simple Woman's Daybook on a not so Simple Monday

I enjoy taking a few minutes on Monday's to join Peggy, of The Simple Woman, in her Daybook entries. Many Monday's I pass because I run short of time but today I am setting aside this moment to share my day with you.  You can find links to other's daybooks on Peggy's page.

Outside my window:  The skies are blue, there is a gentle breeze and not a hint of snow.  We may not be enjoying a white Christmas this year.

I am thinking: that every year I worry about getting everything done and every year everything gets done.

I am thankful: for family and friends as I look forward to spending the Holidays with them.

I am wearing jeans, a long sleeved top and a little snowman pin that I received as a gift in the 12 Days of Christmas swap this year.

I am creating: A welcome and inviting home for our Choir Party tonight.

I am going: to finish my grocery list for Christmas day and hit the stores early in the morning tomorrow in an attempt to beat the crowds.

I am wondering: If I have forgotten anything.  It seems like after all that stress and turmoil, I shouldn't have 2 free days before Christmas LOL.

I am reading: 2 books right now.   A novel by Ken Follet that I am enjoying very much and I just picked up Sustenance and Desire for our Cook the Books club.

I am hoping: for a White Christmas

I am learning: that worrying never resolves anything.

Around the house: getting ready for the party tonight and wrapping more gifts.

In the kitchen: The turkey and dressing are in the oven.  That is my contribution for tonight.  Frank's contribution is the beverages as he is the bartendar extraordinaire and everyone else will bring something for potluck.

I am pondering: how to incorporate my many, many cookbooks into next years meal planning.

A favorite quote for today:

One of my favorite things:  Sitting with Frank after the hustle and bustle of the next few days and relaxing in our house that will continue to celebrate Christmas until January 6th.

A few plans for this week: choir party tonight, grocery shopping tomorrow, celebrating with Frank's family on Christmas Eve prior to singing at Midnight Mass, hosting open house on Christmas Day and having a get together for our son, Chuck, who is in from VA on Friday with all the family and friends that he did not get to see on Christmas Eve or Day.  Saturday, Amy and Chuck are taking me on a surprise outing and then Doug and Frank are meeting us for dinner afterwards.  Stop by my Cast Page so you are not at a complete loss here.


  1. I'm tired just reading about your week ahead....I hope it is all very Merry for you guys. And a white Christmas is my wish for you!

    1. Thanks Paula. I will be thinking of you and your family and sending up extra prayers. Merry Christmas.
