Monday daybook

My friend's little surprise gift
and her stylish shoes
outside my window..... The first week of December and I'm wearing short sleeves to work. Yuck. This whole week wont be good for me. Temps in the high 70s. Yuck again.

I am thinking.... I might be superwoman. This morning before work I did both Bible studies (this one and this one), filled the bird feeder outside, cleaned an ice chest for storage in the garage, straightened my hair and stopped and got gas. I  impressed myself with my productivity this morning.

I am doing.... a little too much holiday house-walking (over here)
working lunch
I am looking forward to.... the weekend again. I know I just had one, but I am in need of another one and sooner rather than later.

I am reading.... almost finished with this book. Its over 600 pages so its quite an accomplishment.

Quote for the day:  "Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God." I John 4:7

I am wearing.... blue pin striped suit (very old from Ann Taylor) and my new (short sleeve!) blouse from black Friday 50% off sale at Ann Taylor.

In the kitchen.... the three Christmas lambs have found their way to the kitchen window.

I am planning....  Christmas dinner. Thus far the menu is: Honey baked ham and fried turkey, corn bread stuffing from Zeeland Street Market, and corn casserole and whatever my mother in law feels like cooking.  Menu will grow as time goes on.

I am thankful.... rain forecasted this week. The poor azaleas are looking thirsty. I have every intention to visit them with the waterhose.  I blame the day light savings time.  Its pitch black when I get home and the azaleas get the short end of the stick.

A peek into my day.... participated in my favorite activity today,  spreading a little  encouragement among my wonderful friends. One friend received two cookies (these cookies) and a note with a Bible verse (this one) and the other received lip gloss, two cookies and candy.  No reason. Just to make them smile.

I am linked up with the Simple Woman's Daybook here.

Hey, I love the Christmas lambs!

What a neat way to spread encouragement amongst your friends. I usually do cards, but I like the idea of lip gloss and cookies better!

Kudos to you on finishing your 600 page book. I started on a biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, which is 600 pages, but stopped in the middle. I'm going to have to pick it back up.

All that food talk is making me hungry. :) And a 600 page book is definitely an accomplishment.
