SWDB 11/14/16


For Today
November 14, 2016

Looking out my window
The sun comes and goes, the few remaining leaves are hanging on for dear life, rustling branches, and rolls of hay in the pasture in front of our house.

I am thinking
How very blessed I am, I have a warm home, great friends and a healthy family.

I am thankful
For all of Gods blessings, especially hot cocoa on a chilly day.

One of my favorite things
Cuddly Kittens on crisp cool Fall Days.

I am creating
A Banner and new dress for Mountain Man Rendezvous camping (everything is pre-1840)

I am wearing
Jeans, a Thermal shirt, and a warm sweater.

I am reading 
Reading the Book of Job, in the Bible

I am hoping
That my simple post finds anyone who may read it well.

I am learning
To be a bit more gracious in my speech and action, while a bit of salt can be good, it can also burn.

In my kitchen
Not much right now, just 2-3 dishes in the sink.  But getting ready for some sloppy joe's on home made buns!

In the school room
Just me now....
Learning how to effectively and efficiently work my home based business on social media!

Closing Notes
Thank you so much for stopping by, please leave a comment, I'm trying to get back into the habit of posting on my blog now that my kids are grown and out in the world, and I would love to hear from you!!!  Blessings!


  1. Hi Valerie,
    I love this post and especially the quote from Corrie Ten Boom.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

  2. Hi Valerie,
    Thanks for visiting me at Harvest Lane Cottage.
    One of my pets—not sure if it was my cat or dog—presented a gift of a mouse on my bedroom floor today. I think I'll skip the thank you note!

  3. Cuddly kitties and hot cocoa ... you've got me there. I agree these provide a perfect addition to any cool, blustery day.

    This is my first time visit to your blog -- I'm joining with Simple Woman's Daybook.

    Thank you for sharing a slice of your life here today. Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places to add beauty and cheer to your day.

    Brenda :)

  4. You are spot-on about the little bit of salt. Love the Corrie ten Boom quote.
