A Simple Woman's Daybook Oct. 26

Surfing the web over the weekend and stumbled over this blog. The Simple Woman's Daybook is done each Monday. Check it out......

FOR TODAY October 26, 2009 from Karen's Daybook...

Outside my window...God's beautiful fall colors at it's best! The trees are at it's peak in yellows, reds, greens

I am thinking...how nice it is to be a 'Nana' to 5 beautiful grandkids

I am thankful for...my hubby's safe return from his trip to China

From the learning rooms...I am thinking that this is for the homeschoolers..but hey, I'm STILL learning! Now am trying to learn how to make my own blog button.
From the kitchen...a new recipe for Peanut Butter Bran Choc. Chip muffins that do NOT make my sugar soar!!

I am wearing...my old pj's, a scraggly old sweater and big socks..I may look scruffy, but I'm warm!

I am creating...a new quilt for our bed in blacks and tans and am loving it (Shakespeare in the Park)

I am going...to Las Vegas at the end of the week with my hubby
I am reading..."Don't Waste Your Life" by John Piper (for my Bible Study)

I am hoping...for great weather on Friday for Sheleah's BD party

I am listening to.... "Glorius" by Chris Tomlin....a new song for us at church and I love it!

Around the house...White pumpkins and fall flowers. I don't do Halloween stuff, just pretty fall things and quilts!

One of my favorite things... bonfires on chilly fall nights
A few plans for the rest of the week: shopping for Sheleah's birthday, teaching 5 quilt classes, decide on what to make for my Christmas cards and get started!

Here is picture I am sharing...........a fall quilt..........

That's a neat idea. It's good to take stock from time to time.

Wow! Beautiful quilt creation! And 34 years of marriage..congratulations! I enjoy visiting your homepage today. I used to live in China so having known that your husband has been to that country recently is quite interesting to me :) Blessings from my home to yours.
