The Simple Woman Daybook 86

FOR TODAY: December 6, 2011
You can find the more daybooks at Simple Woman's Daybook.

Outside my window...the blinds are closed to stop the glare off the computer.

I am thinking...about writing group, Christmas schedules, the up coming children's Christmas musical, and "safe" places I could have put the things I am missing.

I am thankful for...my writing group.

From the kitchen...is a mess that must be dealt with tonight. I can no longer push "editing" issues off till December because December is here...and the pile of dishes is too high.

I am wearing...A black t-shirt with a formal black skirt (which I normally reserve for Sundays) laundry is another important life element that must be taken care of tonight.

I am creating...since I'm letting the novel "breath" (I actually found that term in an article on how to edit your novel) I'm back to knitting a shawl and debating finishing the baby blanket. There are also Christmas cards to make at some point.

I am going...for lunch

I am reading...The Soprano Sorceress by L. E. Modesitt

I am wondering...what the difference between thinking, wondering, and pondering is and why all three are in the daybook. I realized today that I was missing a few simple woman categorizes wondering and pondering were two of them (I added all the "new" ones).

I am hoping...to be productive.

I am looking forward to...the church's Christmas banquet.

I am hearing...the distant murmur of people talking.

Around the house...much to do.

I am pondering...world construction for my novel.

One of my favorite things...the Golden Apple.

A few plans for the rest of the week: cleaning the apartment, open mic, youth group, play practices, church banquet, church, Christmas card making craft day, a celebrating a friends birthday, and the last writing group meeting of 2011.

A picture to share...

I lose things in those "safe" places too. ha.

I haven't noticed the category changes in the Daybook format--guess I need to be more observant. ha. (I substitute in my own anyway....)

You've got a busy December. I guess that's the norm nowadays. Ours is that way too.

Thanks for sharing your Daybook. Love the picture. :-)

Congratulations my girl - on winning the Golden Apple Award. That IS a great picture.

Have a question for you - to be answered as soon as possible - how do I contact Emily? At least that's what I think her name is.
She wanted a Jayne Cobb hat knit before mid-December when she leaves for ... maybe for out West somewhere?

Please can you e-mail me an answer asap?

Thanks, Jane(y)
