Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY ... February 2, 2009
Outside my window...it is warm and sunny and as Karen loves to say, "We live in GOD's Country!' So warm and sunny all the time, hurray for warm weather in February!
I am thinking...that life is good! The boys are playing nicely, school is going well, Dan is working, Jodi is settling in as director of the center, Titus is napping, bread is on it's second rising already and I have worked out...phew!
I am thankful for...Dan. He is so wonderful...if you don't believe me, see my previous post...LOL!From the learning rooms...we will be working on our inventors lapbook again, reading more of Masterpiece, working independently on a few things and enjoying more! Who knew school could be enjoyable??
From the kitchen...Bread is rising, tea is brewing and dishes are soaking! BLTs for dinner tonight, one of my faves..can't wait to eat it on that yummy whole wheat bread...YUM~O!!
I am wearing...workout clothes since Billy Blanks was on the ticket this morning...he is soooo mean! (But my body will appreciate my efforts soon, I hope)
I am creating...more pages for my homemakers binder, letters for my pen pals, encouraging words for my friends that read my blog and a happy home for my family!
I am going...to work 3 nights this week, and to the Dr. tomorrow. I intend to go a few places in my reading and that's enough adventure for me, but maybe Dan and I will sneak in a short date somewhere. ::here's hopin::
I am reading...the Bible (all of the NT in 90 days) Educational Travelling on a Shoestring and The Love Dare
I am hoping...to get everything done today, I could use the encouragement!
I am hearing...boys playing and heading outside, the dryer and my brain rattling around in there...LOL!
Around the house...I'm working on the room of the week challenge for CEOs at cafemom, enjoying my super clean bedroom from last week's challenge, trying a new recipe this week, making sure the backyard gets put back together after the boys get done playing.
One of my favorite things...Dan...have I mentioned that I really like him...*sigh* I'm really reminded in these hectic past few days of how helpful he is and how blessed I am to have him. He's always helping out, suggesting a new way to do something more efficiently or folding up some laundry while I'm busy doing something else...he ROCKS!!
A few plans for the rest of the week...Making Valentine cards with the kids, planning our trip to see EK and Linda, pondering what to get Dan for his b-day and getting excited about Alec coming to visit..which means I need to practice up on Guitar Hero. ; )
Here is picture thought I am sharing...Hmm, what to share this time... ah yes, my cozy, super clean bedroom...last night I slept sooooo soundly, no mental clutter to keep me awake! *Sigh*
