Outside my window...the sun is just beginning to rise over the Blue Ridge Mountains this chilly morning in the Valley--a beautiful sight! The temperature tonight will be down to 12 degrees and tomorrow night even lower down to 7!
I am thinking...about what we'll do today with Tom home from work for the holiday. I absolutely love days that he's around the house!
I am thankful...for the new internet server we just installed--now I can watch sewing tutorials with no limits on band-width!! Last week was spent on the computer changing everything over...I'm sure you noticed it was quiet on the blog! It was a lot of work!
In the kitchen...the plan for tonight's dinner is leftover spaghetti with salad, homemade bread, and the remaining brownies for dessert from Sunday's potluck. Sarah experimented with two new brownie recipes for Market and brought them for the church families to sample.
I am wearing...navy skirt, purple turtleneck, light blue sweater, and knitted scarf of blues/purples/aquas, navy stockings...and navy crocs.
I am creating...next month's Block-of-the-Month for sewing class--this is the last block for this year's session, and it will be wonderful to get it finished!
I am going...out to lunch today with Tom. Where? No clue yet--doesn't matter--I'm looking forward to it.
I am reading...With Fabric and Thread by Joanna Figueroa that's listed under What We're Reading over on the left sidebar. There's a beautiful Blossom quilt pattern in the book, and I already have the fabric kit...maybe something to start after the BOM is all done.
I am looking forward to...The Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA, in February. It's possible I might be able to go--not sure yet.
I am learning..."in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." Philippians 4:12
Around the house...at the moment, there's a bed in my living room! Tom brought his wood-working inside and laid out the headboard and footboard that he's building for Sarah. It's looking good!
A few plans for the rest of the week...it's Love Your Local Quilt Shop Day coming up on Thursday. I'll be visiting mine!
A picture to share..a cross-stitch Sarah recently finished for Hannah's birthday. It still needs to be stretched, matted, and framed which Hannah will do--in fact, she has a stack of past completed needleworks to frame this winter before the busyness of Farmers' Market resumes.
It's been awhile since I wrote a Simple Woman's Daybook post, so I hope this helped catch you up on what's happening in our neck of the woods. To see other Daybook entries, visit here.
