A Simple Woman's Daybook - September 21st Edition and a GIVE-A-WAY!

For Today...

Outside my window... finally! A cool, breezy morning! The sun is out for now... but I hear rain is on the way!
I am thankful... for a quiet, restful weekend.
From the kitchen... leftover chai buttermilk pancakes for breakfast. As for the rest of the week, I'm not sure yet... Any suggestions?
I am wearing... my black sweatpants (with a hole in the knee) and a comfy natural-colored henley top. In other words, lounge wear.
I am creating... my plan for the busy week ahead.
I am going... to see my sister and her family in just a couple of days! So fun!
I am reading... "So You Want to be a Innkeeper" and "The Scandalous Gospel of Jesus Christ." Oh! And I finally finished my Dean Koontz book...
I am hoping... for the WI Badgers Football team to win this weekend (the hubby and I will be at the game!). Oh - and for good weather (it's supposed to rain...).
I am hearing... The Ellen Show, hammering, and puppy snores.
Some plans for the week... meetings; book group; time with the Bilchuks (my sister's family); open sanctuary; going to Janesville, WI to see the hubby's sister's family; Badgers game; church and paintball with some of our youth group kids... Phew. Busy week.
One of my favorite things... getting packages in the mail...
A picture thought I am sharing: A Give-a-way!!!!
Leave a comment on this post by Friday at 5pm, and you'll be entered into a random drawing for this flip calendar of fun quotes about living simply - and gratefully! I love these things... Sometimes, it's that little quote that makes me smile and keeps me going! (If you post about my give-a-way on your blog, you'll get a second entry!) Good luck!

Things I am thankful for today:

1. A day to work from home. Nice.
2. Playing with the dog and her ball. So silly.
3. Getting our church Facebook site up and running - and inviting "friends"!
4. Pastor Penny's funny "oops" on Facebook.
5. Overhearing the hubby giving relationship advice on the phone... He's good at it!
6. More reading about starting up a B&B.
7. The hubby ordering me shoes that I like! Yeah!
8. Butterscotch cookies and coffee for an afternoon snack.
9. An easy, quick grocery trip - and a burger and tator tots for dinner!
10. "House" season premiere!
11. A phone call from Kelsey!

Whenever I read you Monday blog I get energized to plan my week! Sometimes when I put it all on the calendar I get freaked out!

I have a cool recipe for apple pancakes that we are going to try... I can't wait!

Paintball on Sunday? That sounds like a BLAST!

I'll see you Tuesday! I'm looking forward to the new "format."

I still think Mike could give classes to other guys on how to be a good husband!

Hi Meg,

I agree with your Mom. Mike should give classes on how to be a wonderful husband. He is truly a sweetie!

Love and Peace,
Cheryl

Dang, I'm a little late. 5:20. But I had good intentions.

Oh, well...
