Simple Woman's Daybook

A little late... but it's still Monday where I live!

Please visit The Simple Woman's Daybook on Mondays, to learn more and find links to other ladies who are participating.

FOR TODAY December 22, 2008...

Outside my window... it's dark now but we had some sun shining through the clouds today!

I am thinking... of my brother Bruce, my friend Julie and my cousin Skyla that are celebrating birhtday today!

I am thankful for... my best friend Shelley who lets me sob on her shoulder whenever I need to! :o) (Repeat from last week... still holds true!)

From the learning rooms... We have been learning God's story through the Jesse tree devotionals.

From the kitchen... turkey leftovers.

I am wearing... blue knit pants and matching top.

I am creating... scrapbook pages at Faith Sisters

I am going... to my SIL's tomorrow

I am reading... Reimagining the Church by Frank Viola and Right-Brained Children in a Left-Brained World by Jeffrey Freed and Laurie Parsons. (still)

I am hoping... that God will miraculously heal Jack's cancer and (selfishly) that I will win the Nikon 2X that Pioneer Woman is giving away!

I am hearing... Daddy reading to my children (melts my heart!)

Around the house... We have Pixie, a wonderful Sheltie, "hoovering" up the carpet. (Doggy sitting for a friend)

One of my favorite things... the comfort of old friends that you don't have to explain yourself too.
A few plans for the rest of the week: visiting SIL/BIL, having a lone guest over for Christmas day.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

This is one of my favorite layouts so far. It is made using photos and writing from my great, great, Grandpa, Sedgewick Hopkins of Michigan. I used Silvia Romeo's Old Time Shoppe kit from Heritage Scrap.

So good to hear from you. I've been thinking of you and hoping things are well. That layout is outstanding! As always you inspire me so much. We have a document handwritten my hubby's great-grandfather and I'm already thinking of ideas for a page. I'll have lots of time to scrapbook - we're snowed in! We have two cars stuck in our driveway and we're not going anywhere. I'll try to get pictures up on my blog later.
