Simple Woman's Daybook

For today, Monday November 24, 2008 (Better late than never! I didn't get a chance to do it last night or this morning so here I am at 9 pm!)

Outside my is dark and surprisingly warm. We're expecting rain tonight and tomorrow.

I am thinking...I need to blog more often!

I am thankful for...Tucker doing so well in school, especially in reading! We had Parent-Teacher conferences today and both Tucker's teacher and the Reading teacher are very happy with him.

From the kitchen...Tucker and I had scrambled eggs for lunch (he had a 1/2 day) and I made pizza for lunch. Chicken in the crock pot tomorrow.

I am creating...Tucker and I are making Thanksgiving crafts for the family. (Can't say what because they read this!)

I am wearing...gray sweats, green sweatshirt, and sneakers.

I am reading...finished Anne's House of Dreams. Also read Songs of the Humpback Whale by Jodi Picoult and am halfway through the 4th book of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books. Michael and Tucker are still working on Revolutionary War on Wednesday; otherwise we're reading Thanksgiving/Indian-themed books.

I am hoping...Brooke wins Dancing with the Stars. (After that Freestyle, she should). Also hoping that Tucker's cold doesn't get worse.

I am hearing...the fish tanks gurgling. Dancing with the Stars on TV.

Around the house...Michael did the last load of laundry before he went to work so other than what we are wearing, everything else is clean...dishes in the sink from today...we love the new printer...the dining room table is covered with our Thanksgiving craft stuff.

One of my favorite things...listening to Tucker read.

A few plans for the rest of the week...setting up the Holiday Fair tomorrow at Tucker's school...Tucker has a 1/2 day tomorrow and then is off the rest of the week...Thanksgiving dinner at my mom's on Thursday (Yum!)...maybe a children's museum Friday to break up the week.

A picture thought...

I found this picture on one of the really cold days in the last week (pick a day, any day!) and thought it looked like a good place to be!

I'm thinking Brooke too! I started to really like Lance after last week, but Brooke's freestyle was the best ever!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I really liked Lance last week too (plus I LOVED Lacey when she was on So You Think You Can Dance) but Brooke has been so good, especially last night!
