Outside my window... my eyes are feasting upon the most beautiful sight of exquisite pure white snow which blankets our yard. I am witnessing the handiwork of God and appreciating His works.
I am thinking...that instead of blogging I should be in decorating our Christmas Tree. However, I love to blog and this is my very first Simple Woman's Daybook Entry and I am enjoying this moment of my time.
I am thankful for... numerous blessings. My short list of blessings include that I know that I have a Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ who loves me. I have as my eternal companion the most wonderful man in my universe. I have children who I know love and follow the Lord and our Prophet. I have many grandchildren and each one of them I cherish and love with all my heart.
I have many friends that add so much to my life; including those in blogger land. I am blessed to work in the temple; which is a incredible blessing.
From the learning rooms...(if this applies) I am constantly reading good books and I especially love the scriptures. However, I love a good Christmas Novel and I need to go out and purchase a new one. If any of you have a suggestion let me know.
From the kitchen...I find that the fudge I made to send to someone; is slowly disappearing so I will need to make some more. My husband is home and we are both being drawn into the kitchen for a morsel of chocolate.
I am wearing...It is now 2:00pm and I am still in my white and pink bathrobe and black slippers. I so need to get dressed for the day.
I am creating...this blog and it is my first Daybook entry; so I am having fun with this. I also will need to create some more fudge today.
I am going...to start Christmas decorating. I love this time of year and can hardly wait to get the decorations up and then enjoy sitting in our living room in front of our fireplace and having a cup of Hot Chocolate with my hubby.
I am reading...a book called Holding Fast by Robert L. Millet. He is a favorite author of mine and I just started the book this morning.
I am hoping...to get my decorations up today and then I will tackle my cleaning projects in the next couple of day.
I am hearing...my dear husband playing with our dogs. He is working at home this morning and we have met in the hall a few times for a hug. I love it when he works at home.
Around the house...I have boxes of Christmas Decorations to put up and once up I will be so happy.
One of my favorite things...to do is read. I just completed a book by Toni Sorenson called; "Being Defined By Christ". I would highly recommend it. In fact, I know that it will be on my list of best books I have read. Just think about the title; Being Defined By Christ, it means don't let others define you. See yourself as Christ sees you; this is what it is all about.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Visit my 97 year old Aunt Della whom I love and treasure the time spent with her.
Perhaps some Christmas Shopping
Activity Day activity with my Primary Girls - We are having a Daddy Daughter Sports Night
Serving in the Temple on Saturday and of course enjoying a quiet Sabbath Day with my dear husband.
