November's Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today

Looking out my window

It is cloudy and 64°
I can see the swamp or red maple (Acer Rubrum) that sits outside my bedroom window and is bright red-orange now .

I am thinking

It has been 8 days since the ablation and I am feeling  better aside from pain from all the bruising.

I am thankful

That God saw me through it all.

One of my favorite things

Autumn. I wish it were chillier but, Autumn is always wonderful.


I am creating

Still working on a new painting but I am not much interested in it sadly, and  I don't know why.

I am wearing

Jeans and a black oversized T shirt from the Little's  school production of Cinderella.

I am reading  /watching  / listening to

  I am not reading anything lately except for things associated with my  courses.
I watch little TV, but when I do I watchTouch of Frost or Poirot.
Music is off lately.
But I am hearing CBS Mystery Radio Theater.
I love radio drama. 


I am hoping

To live a long life with better health.


I am learning

That you really cannot rely on people. They talk a good game but rarely deliever. Your only constant is God. He always delivers.


In my kitchen

Cooking nothing much as I have to take it easy.  


In my garden

Leaves need raking. It will have to wait until someone volunteers.

From my Pinterest, a pretty autumnal color:

Shared Quote

This quote applies to me.  I have loved people who didn't think I was special at all.               I wish I could get it right.
