My Daybook December 7

                                         My Den Wall

Outside my window... my patio is covered with leaves.

I am thinking... about jury duty Monday . I never get picked.  Once I took a copy of Runaway Jury into the auditorium.  Was that why?


I am thankful for... my husband. He makes me laugh every day.

From the kitchen... I will be making chocolate candy this week and a chicken and wild rice casserole. I will also be planning my next food treat to take to my nephew’s basketball game.  Saturday I took 2 dozen tamales and a batch of chocolate chip cookies.  He was the MVP of the tournament.  For the next game, I may take him a pot roast. I want to continue to outdo myself just to see my brother laugh. I might take the roast into the game in my red crockpot.

I am wearing... one of my crazy silk caftans.

I am creating... a red crocheted ripple afghan, once I find 10 skeins of brick red yarn in the same dye lot.  I have been to 3 Wal Marts with no luck.  How about a red baby blanket?

I am call my Aunt Mary in Phoenix to thank her for the wonderful pumpkin bread she mailed us.

I am reading... Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis and A Matter of Taste, a cookbook I bought at Goodwill in Dallas.  It is from the Junior League of New Jersey.  Taste travels.

I am hoping... that cold weather will return.

I am hearing… Christmas music.

Around the house...I am arranging and re-arranging.

One of my favorite things... being in my home.

A few plans for the rest of the week… have a health test, wrap gifts, laugh.

Sounding like you got the tiger by the tail, Miss Laura!

Oh you teachers...always so organized. Is that blossom from a real olive tree, i.e. manzanilla or arbequina? I am still waiting for my arbequina olive trees to fruit. They are now spending a long winter in the barn.

I should read that "comeback after 45" book. Sounds very interesting and probably what I need right now!

Amy said...

Reflecting...I need to do more of that. I too am intriqued "comeback after 45 book". Good luck on getting your list completed. I need to write lists. Thanks.

Laura, I love these daybooks that I see bloggers doing. It really inspires me to get busy and do some things I need to do, but first I need to reflecct on what that is.

Thanks so much for sharing, and I hope you are having a lovely day...
