The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today... December 7th

Outside my window... is snow, snow and more snow

I am thinking... that I really need to work on my homework even if I don't want to do it.

I am thankful for... my heat working.

From the kitchen... not much since I just mopped and it is wet. We just had p&j for lunch. I am making pork mole for dinner. I may make banana bread.

I am wearing... jeans and a sweater.

I am reading... a history book, a book on American Education, "Lean Mean 13" by Janet Evanovich, and the Yarn Harlot's blog.

I am hoping... that Jay will fix my leaky sink and put up the new shelf like he promised today.

I am creating... several knit dishcloths for Christmas presents.

I am hearing... Anka singing about being a super hero and spinning, and Jimmy playing cowboy.

Around the house... it is clean. I only have to fold clothes when they get out of the dryer.

One of my favorite things... knitting, new yarn and pattern books.

A few plans for the rest of the week... hopefully getting a tree, more cleaning, lots of schoolwork, and shuttling Jimmy back and forth to school.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you... My princess

I feel like I am drowning in school work. Every week I have at least one thousand word paper due plus several other projects. I also have to read around 150-200 pages a week for my classes. I cannot wait until the 21st when our 2 week break begins.

I am still working on my knitted gifts. I just finished a knit kitty dishcloth. I also got a bit of shopping done on Black Friday. I got Jay a TomTom for $59. Of course I had to give it to him right away. I also got myself a new sewing machine. It is Jay's gift to me. I got Bianca a huge Barbie. It is almost as big as she is. I got Jimmy a Madagascar racing game for the Wii. I have to get the kids some more things and I will be done with the shopping part of Christmas.

Here are the pictures of the kitty dishcloth. You can see my new sewing machine in the background. Also I haven't blocked the dishcloth yet so it is not square. It will be though when I am all done with it.
