The Simple Woman's Daybook

Yesterday I was over at The Ranch Wife Chronicles and Robyn had done something called "The Simple Woman's Daybook". It's a blog hop where you get a set of questions and answer them. You then go back to their page and post your name and a link to your blog so others can check it out. It sounded kind of fun so I thought I would give it a shot.
The questions for December are:

Outside my window...SNOW!!!! We haven't had snow in 310 days according to the weather man. But it is nasty and blowing!!

I am thinking...that this is enough winter for this year. Sure we might end up with a White Christmas but I'm ready for spring and summer :)

I am thankful... That I made it home from work safely! I stayed an extra hour and waited until It was bright enough to see out.

In the kitchen...Christmas cookies galore!! I have been baking up a storm. I plan on taking cookies around to my friends and neighbors tomorrow.

I am wearing... My scrubs still. But I will definitely be putting on something warm soon.

I am creating... Cookies!!! That’s all I’ve made the past few days it seems like around 17 dozen!!

I am going...To my great aunts house this Sunday for Christmas with my dad’s family and am really excited to see my cousins!!

I am wondering... When the snow is going to stop blowing!!!

I am reading...The Diary of A Farmer's Wife a diary of a woman written from 1796-1797. I highly recommend it. It is about the day to day life of her and her husband’s farm in England.

I am hoping...That I pass all of my college classes next semester since they are all online!!

I am looking forward to...Christmas Eve service at church being surrounded by our friends and lots of singing!!!

I am learning....Nothing!! I am on Christmas break from college so I am giving my brain a break!

Around the house...It will soon be filled with the wonderful aroma of cookies baking.

I am pondering...what tomorrow is going to bring. Can't wait to see how some people react to the "end" of the world :) I have a feeling everything will be ok and we will

A favorite quote for today... "Be what you want to be not what others want to see."

One of my favorite things...Blogging, I have enjoyed making my blog even if not many people read it. But mostly I enjoy reading other peoples blogs. I love learning about them and their unique ways of life.

A few plans for the rest of the week.....Christmas on Sunday with part of my family then Christmas Eve service and work.

A peek into my day... I worked last night but didn't get home until 7:30 am, pretty soon I will try and venture outside because I need to go out and do chores and make sure the cows have water, then I'm going to be baking some more cookies, then if it's even safe to leave i have a work meeting to go to. Luckily I have the night off so I plan on sleeping until I can’t sleep no more!!

This is the view from my kitchen. Nice and snowy!
