For Today ~ 12 November 2008 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

Yes…I know it’s not Monday, but it’s MY Monday (had a four-day weekend).

FOR TODAY … 12 November 2008

Outside My Window… Partly cloudy day. The sun is peeking out between them, low on the southeastern horizon. Not quite so chilly this morning, only had condensation on the windows, not frost.

I am thinking… I worked my arse off on my two days off! What’s up with that?! No naps even! I made 230 lip balms on Monday…and over 120 1-oz solid lotions on Tuesday. Now I have to make labels for them…and labels for the 5 batches of soap I made at the end of July, they’re nice and hard now…ready to be sold here at work.

I am thankful for… Once again, my family.

From the kitchen… Chicken is defrosting with a Chipotle marinade. Will get the BBQ ready when I get home from work. I made up Pesole last night…just leftover chicken broth that I had in the freezer, cut up a pork roast that my MIL sent me home with on Sunday night, added a bag of roasted green chiles (I froze a lot of them) that came from the garden and a can of hominy. Grilled some tortillas to go along with it. Yummie. Have some for lunch today.

I am wearing… blue jeans, tennies and a black mock turtleneck.

I am creating… just finished making lip balms and solid lotions, will get back into my quilting soon.

I am going… go balance the checkbook after I post this.

I am reading… I have four books next to my bed and I’m not reading any of them. I’m too tired when I crawl into bed.

I am hoping… that a job is out there for my husband, this is his last week at the temp job.

I am hearing… me typing. It’s quiet.

Around the house… it’s clean. Clean, Clean, Clean. Well…as clean as I get it, which probably isn’t as clean as other people’s clean. 🙂

One of my favorite things… used to be helping my dad hang Christmas lights the day after Thanksgiving. I still do that, but on my own now.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… probably quilting and labeling lip balms, lotions, and soap.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…melting shea butter, olive oil, and waxes 1/3 cup at a time ~


The Simple Woman is the original home of The Simple Woman's Daybook.

The Simple Woman’s Daybook will take place each Monday.

Here’s how to take part:

1. Write up and publish your journal page using the questions/picture ideasI have listed below onto your blog. Be as descriptive as you can! This makes it more interesting to your readers. (You may cut and paste them for the purpose to participate in The Simple Woman’s Daybook.)

2. Copy the “permalink” from your “The Simple Woman’s Daybook” post, not the link to the front page of your blog. This will make it much easier for others to find instead of looking through the entire list of entries at your blog for your “daybook”. This will save time for all of us.

3. Come back here and add your permalink to Mister Linky.

  1. Are you going to a show? Did you get a big order? Are you putting the lip balms up so you can sell them at a shop?

    Those lip balms look like little soldiers ready to go to battle with those frantic Christmas shoppers. 😉

  2. No show nor a big order…just wanted to be finished with them.

    I’ve made the last of the cold processed soaps to sell…will only make them for myself and for gifts. Same with the lip balms and solid lotions.

    I may put some up on Etsy ~ but will mainly sell here at work.
