The Simple Woman's Daybook
Today..... Wednesday, January 10, 2018
Looking out my window..... I see the field across the road covered with a thin layer of snow, and a bunch of various stubborn plants peeking up through the cold weather, determined to stay seen.
I am thinking..... That gravy on waffles isn't as odd as it sounds.
I am thankful..... For pens and for people.
One of my favorite things..... Is knowing the answers to all the driving-related questions my brother asks me randomly.
I am wearing..... A floral patterned skirt and a pale purple t-shirt.
I am creating..... Aside from the obvious, I'm creating a cook book of healthy recipes, I love inventing recipes, especially challenging ones. My sister is my taste-tester and because of that she has grown to be suspicious of anything that looks too good to be true, like the time I made a gluten-free and sugar free cheesecake with strawberry sauce, she has still not forgotten the taste.
I am reading..... Well, as of today I haven't read anything, but yesterday I read "Kidnapped" by Robert Louis Stevenson, and "The Prince and the Pauper" by Mark Twain. Both were surprisingly good books.
I am hoping..... That I will survive the winter without any sicknesses. I've made it this far, only a a few months to go yet.
I am learning..... How to paper quill. It's a very fascinating process and I'm enjoying it immensely.
In the kitchen..... Is our fridge and our oven, plus a sink and a table. The whole room is perfectly adapted to cooking and baking and eating, the kitchen is a wondrous invention.
Picture thought..... Sean and I had a great time yesterday experimenting with his fizz and bubbles science kit. I'm almost certain his favorite part was when the mixtures bubbled over like volcanoes.
