The Simple Woman Daybook 89

FOR TODAY: December 27, 2011
You can find the more daybooks at Simple Woman's Daybook.

Outside my window...the snow covered on my parents' front lawn.

I am thinking...it is a good day for a drive which is a good thing because the whole family is about ready to hop in the car for a five and a half hours drive to see the Stewart side of the family.

I am thankful for...my sister who wrote a letter to Santa asking him to wait to deliver gifts till I could be with the family.

I am wearing...jeans, a red shirt, peas in a pod earrings and a Santa hat.

I am creating...a citron (knit shawl).

I am going...to Grandma's house, first we're going to David's for Christmas dinner then to Grandma's house.

I am reading...On Writing by Steven King.

I am wondering...why if my tummy is up set or just hungry.

I am hoping...that I am not getting sick.

I am looking forward to...seeing all of the Stewart and Willson families over the next few days.

I am hearing...my sister calling for my mom, my dad asking questions about my new gps TomTom, and the clock chiming.

Around the house...I'm not going to think about it till I get home.

I am pondering...about the NaNo novel I wrote in 2008. I was talking to my Aunt last night and the story came up. I forgot how much I liked the story and how much potential it had.

One of my favorite things...boterkoek (Dutch butter cake).

A few plans for the rest of the week: driving to Hamilton today, Stewart Christmas dinner tonight, hanging with the Stewarts tomorrow, visiting a friend tomorrow night, Willson Christmas lunch Thursday, diving back to my parent's Friday and supper with Aunt Beth, and then flying back home on Saturday arriving just in time for the Van Meekeren's board games New Year's Eve party.

I hope you have a wonderful time seeing your relatives.

I am imagining peas in a pod earrings ... LOL. Perhaps you could show a picture sometime?
