The Simple Woman's Daybook . . .
FOR TODAY, November 15, 2015
Outside my window ...
It's cold and dark, but I did get to see the Super Moon early last evening. Yay! I did not think we were going to be able to see it as the weather has been so poor and the skies so overcast, so that was a real bonus!
I am thinking ...
My heart broke a tiny bit last night. I was talking to my eldest daughter on FB and wanted to share a really nice video with her that I had watched. It was one of the Mormon Messages, but it wasn't a proselyting one. Just a nice one about the Saviour. She refused to watch it. It hurts my feelings that I can't share even something which is simply nice with my children without them thinking I have an ulterior motive.
In the kitchen ...

I am reading ...
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
Alaska, the 1920s. Jack and Mabel have staked everything on a fresh start in a remote homestead, but the wilderness is a stark place, and Mabel is haunted by the baby she lost many years before. When a little girl appears mysteriously on their land, each is filled with wonder, but also foreboding: is she what she seems, and can they find room in their hearts for her?
Written with the clarity and vividness of the Russian fairy tale from which it takes its inspiration, The Snow Child is an instant classic.
You are right in thinking this is a re-read. I love this book. I loved it the first time I read it and I am loving it again.
