Daybook November 23


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.

Visit the Simple Woman’s Daybook for more entries.

Beautiful rose, it sounds wonderful with the sights and sounds of your family around you! Oh and I forgot the smell of the roasted chicken:) Have a blessed day and enjoy the game!

Oh that little bee all nestled in his rose. How precious is that thought. Have a wonderful day, Laura, Yes I know, red is calling me too!

Your rose is so beautiful, Laura. I wonder if it has one of the "rose-y" smells, or if it's one that is just lovely to look at.
Red, huh. Hmmmm.... interesting. I guess that is where that undercurrent of tremendous energy that is always flowing from you comes from. Red just can make one feel so happy!
Enjoy that #3 daughter... And #2 when she is around. Would I ever like to be a fly on the wall when you girls start talking home decor and cooking!!
