The Simple Woman's Daybook, Monday, December 28, 2015, and Quorn Turk'y Roast

For today...Monday, December 28, 2015

Outside my window... the sky is getting lighter as dawn nears.

I am thinking... that I'm glad I remembered to do this Daybook! I like writing them and reading other people's Daybooks.

I am thankful... for God's mercy. He loves us more than I could ever imagine, and I'm grateful.

From the kitchen... leftover Christmas pies. :)

I am wearing... a pink shirt and denim shorts.

I am creating... this blog post. :)

I am going to... get some rest this week before our trip on Friday to see our oldest daughter and our four beautiful grandchildren! We haven't seen them for a long time, and we're very, very excited!

I am wondering... what kind of new job my husband will get. He's working now but wants to find something else.

I am hoping... we continue to recover from this 'bug' that's been going around.

I am hearing...
the morning network news program.

I am looking forward to... seeing those precious grandchildren this weekend!

Around the house... it's very quiet. I like quiet. :)

A favorite quote for today... "Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife." -- Franz Schubert

One of my favorite things... is having something very easy for lunch or dinner. I don't like to cook, so an easy meal is great, like leftover pie for breakfast! :)

A few plans for the rest of the week... washing the dishes, making an important phone call, going to a follow-up doctor's appointment, doing laundry, and getting things together for the trip. Thanking God even now that the weather forecasts for here and there look great - no snow, ice, or freezing rain!

A picture thought I am sharing...

Our family tried a Quorn Turk'y Roast for Thanksgiving this year
and really liked it, so we had it again for Christmas!
It's meat-free and gluten-free. Easy to cook and
paired well with stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, and potatoes.
You can learn more about Quorn products here.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
