The Simple Woman’s Daybook: October 23, 2016

For Today…

Simple Woman's Daybook

Looking out my window… dark. It was in the 60’s today with some clouds moving in a little bit ago and a short shower. My joints are feeling better now that the BIG weather systems have rolled on through.

I am thinking… about my week and what is on my plate in terms of school, Daniel, church and everything else.

I am thankful… I’m doing better in terms of this stupid virus than I was last Wednesday afternoon and evening.

One of my favorite things… when all my numbers balance on my Accounting homework. πŸ™‚

I am wearing… jammies. Church clothes were my turquoise/black/white bokeh Easter dress with a black camisole underneath (Kohl’s), my black cardigan (Kohl’s), black tights (Target back from when we lived in Montana), and my black flats (Naturalizer). A couple people commented on how pretty I looked in my dress. (I usually dress up for church but my outfit today was apparently a big deal?) After church, I changed into my blue-green shirt from Old Navy and jeans from Kohl’s.

I am creating… formulas for my Excel submission assignment that is due tomorrow at 11:55 p.m.

I am listening to… “Cops: Reloaded” on TV. I’ll probably switch to various musical pieces in a bit.

I am hoping… to be over this stupid respiratory thing soon.

I am learning… about adjusting entries in Accounting.

In my kitchen… steak, potatoes, bacon caesar salad, and cookies with ice cream for dessert.

In the school room… Daniel’s “fall family meeting” went super well. He’s making progress and his teachers/aides/therapists are smitten with him. πŸ™‚

Post Script… You know you have the respect of your LGBTQ friends when ones that are very anti-religious send you an article from a religious publication you like and ask for your honest thoughts on it. πŸ™‚

Shared Quote… I have two for you today. The one on courage is from my friend Laura.

A lovely RFK quotation.
Laura's quotation on courage.

A moment from my day…

Closing Notes: When I was writing my piece on Friday, a piece of code that was supposed to bold something got inserted in a weird place and I didn’t find it until last night when I was reading over something. It ended up putting the last part of the second C. Everett Koop in bold type… a part that I think *ALL* of us need to read and re-read endlessly in this election cycle.

Well-played, WordPress. Good move, God.
