The Simple Woman's Daybook . . .
FOR TODAY, October 20th, 2015
Outside my window ...
It's dark. Who knows what the day will bring, but yesterday was absolutely gorgeous!
I am thinking ...
More blood tests this morning. I am starting to feel like a pin cushion. I hope nothing sinister is going on.
I am thankful for ...
Modern medicine. I think I would have been dead a long time ago without it!
In the kitchen ...
Chicken Pad Thai. Oddly addictive!
On My "To Cook" List ...
Sweet Potato Banana Bites, from The Lean Green Bean.
I am creating ...
The list is slowly growing. I have made several more felt ornaments this week. I made up the Hello Kitty one myself. It wasn't hard. I love doing these things. Helps to keep my fingers and mind busy while watching mind numbing telly.
DIY Wooden Pumpkins from Creatively Homespun. These are fun looking and so simple. I love primitive things like this.
Candy Corn Wreath Tutorial from The Trendy Tree.
Spider Pops for goulish giveaways on Halloween! From House of Baby Piranha. There's a lot of cute ideas of things to do with the kids on that page. Nice little family friendly blog!
Scrap Book Paper Magnets from s.e.i.Lifestyle.
I am reading ...
Spill Simmer Falter Wither, by Sara Baume
A misfit man finds a misfit dog. Ray, aged fifty-seven, ‘too old for starting over, too young for giving up’, and One Eye, a vicious little bugger, smaller than expected, a good ratter. Both are accustomed to being alone, unloved, outcast – but they quickly find in each other a strange companionship of sorts. As spring turns to summer, their relationship grows and intensifies, until a savage act forces them to abandon the precarious life they’d established, and take to the road.
Spill Simmer Falter Wither is a wholly different kind of love story: a devastating portrait of loneliness, loss and friendship, and of the scars that are more than skin-deep. Written with tremendous empathy and insight, in lyrical language that surprises and delights, this is an extraordinary and heartbreaking debut by a major new talen.
Short listed for the Guardian First Book Award 2015.
I am hoping ...
We are having a little Halloween Party for the Missionaries this evening at the Johansens. I am hoping I can get everything I need to get done done on time! I'm also hoping my blood tests are alright today.
Makes me smile ...
Shirley Temple always makes me smile. I love the films. My oldest daughter always loved her movies as well. I have many happy memories of watching them together.
I am learning ...
The more I think I know, the less I really know. haha That never changes.
Dreaming about ...
Whole rooms just for dishes . . .
Cosy cottage kitchens . . .
Antique Mirrors . . .
Old chairs, wooden beds and rag rugs . . .
Living warm and cosy . . .
