November 23, 2009...
Outside my window... my iceberg rose bush is blooming.
I am thinking... about the food preparation I need to complete ( I am already drying several slices of bread to add to my cornbread for the dressing.)
I am thankful for... so much : Daughter #3 is visiting , she is contacting SMU’s athletic office to find information on her grandfather- my husband’s father- who was a collegiate athlete there , and we are going to my nephew’s varsity basketball game this evening.
From the learning rooms...I have contacted my teacher interns to wish them a wonderful Thanksgiving week.
From the kitchen... I can smell my husband’s roasted chicken baking. We are having that with salad before the game (to avoid concession stand temptations).
I am wearing... my yard clothes- what else is new?
I am creating... a few simple vignettes for my nativity collection. This year I am only setting out a few.
I am going... back to the grocery store for acorn squash.
I am reading...cookbooks and wishing Kaye Gibbons (author of Charms for the Easy Life; Ellen Foster) had a new book.
I am hoping... my precious grandsons and my oldest daughter and son-in-law have a wonderful Thanksgiving at his parents. They are such fine people.
I am hearing... Daughter #3’s favorite soap opera in the background.
Around the house... the color red is smiling.
One of my favorite things...the color red.
A few plans for the rest of the week: cooking and planting tomato plants , if I can find some.
