Simple Woman's Daybook November 23

Outside my window...gray, kind of a misty rain

I am thinking... of how many of the kids will be able to get in to see a doctor before the holiday

I am thankful for... that our doctor is just down the street. I like him alot and we see things the same way.

I am wearing... my red bathrobe still.

I am going... to be cleaning up the house today in the event that everyone feels well enough for Turkey on Thursday.

I am reading . . . email and blogs, haven't had much time for anything else the past two weeks with sickness.

I am hoping... that everyone gets better soon

On my mind... the lack of sleep has caused nothing to be on my mind right now

From the learning rooms... oh my gosh, last week was a complete bust. That's when all the sickness started. So I guess our learning will have to wait. And we were on such a good roll with our writing program and history.

Noticing that...life can be very lonely in a small town where you are not originally from plus the homeschooling. We live so far away from our homeschool support group that it is hard to make friendships easily and then friends that you can connect with often.

Pondering these words . . . God works all things for our good. I've had some doubts some days

From the kitchen... nothing

Around the house... lots of cleaning up and piles of craft things that are waiting for the churches craft and cookie sale on 12/5 - it should be fun.

One of my favorite things . . . is the crowded stores at Christmas time. I just love the listening to carols over the intercoms and the decorations.

From my picture journal...these two just had birthdays this past weekend

Stop by Peggy'sto read other daybooks. Have fun!!

A lovely Daybook, Lisa! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a kind comment. As for the steam cleaning - I used my sister's upright Bissel steam-cleaner and it took hardly any time at all to do the carpets. Much easier than the ones you rent in stores! :)

Lisa, thanks for sharing your daybook. I hope all the family starts to feel better. A house full of sick kids is mentally and physically exhausting for the parents.
I know how you feel about being lonely in a small town. Some days are worse than others...especially gray rainy days.
I enjoy your blog and will visit often.

I hope that your family gets better very soon!

I love the thought that you are pondering... I believe it with my whole heart and then have my doubts at times, too! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Lisa:) Isn't it great to know we all have the same feelings and emotions. We are only human and will always have challenges in life, some big some small. Just gotta keep the faith:) Hugs~ Carol

Hi Lisa ~ Hope you and your precious family will be feeling better soon. I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit. I don't get to visit much these days but it sure renews my spirit when I do.

I understand your heart with being away from your support group. We are transplants from the Midwest to the South. It does take a little time to assimilate into a new area, but God is so graceous to provide our needs ... and one of those needs is fellowship and support. Just keep looking to Him and will supply your every need.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Lisa,
I am so sorry for all the sickness in your home right now.
i also can relate to how you feel about small towns and no support groups. In all our years of homeschooling-13yrs we have never lived near other homeschoolers. All my associations have been over the phone and recently on the internet.

I have loved visiting. Your blog is so welcoming and hoemey. How I love my own to be. I just HAD to steal the hot chocolate and Christmas countdown.

Praying for your week to improve.
God Bless
