Simple Woman's Daybook
Would you like to linger on the simple things...then join me and many others in taking a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those who are focusing on simplicity...beauty of everyday moments. 'Simple Woman' For Today... November 16, 2009
Outside my window... the calm cool day awaits
I am thinking... that blogging is one of the best inventions EVER...and that being able to make it into a 'real' book is a delightful option.
I am thankful for... time spent with family, just being together, whether hiking, playing board games or just lounging around...family time is happy time
I am wearing... my pjs since I just got up...but as soon as I wrap this up, I'll be changing into my 'let's clean this house' clothes...LOL
I am remembering... a well spent day yesterday hiking and climbing at City of Rocks State Park
I am going... to the library, and to work, that's all for today.
I am reading...Mad Mary by Liz Higgs Curtis (a re-read, but decidedly worth it) Kingdom Tales and Life Made From Scratch
I am hoping... to squeeze in some more reading time before working tonight, I have been missing time to read
On my mind... many things, but finance/housing issues and trusting God are at the top of the list. My goodness, trusting is HARD sometimes!
From the learning rooms... looking forward to another great week like last week! We are really getting into our MFW curriculum, and the ABeka 'core' subjects are humming along nicely, too! Time to start hunting for new book basket books
I am noticing that... a few minutes of tidying each evening makes waking up a much nicer thing.
I am pondering... what growing older in spirit while growing younger in body must feel like (watched 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons' last night) Hmmm...
Around the kitchen... dishes are waiting to be washed, dried and used again, bread has already been baked for the week, including a fancy braided loaf (mmmm) and it's time to head to the grocery store again, glad it's not my turn..LOL~ Here are the meal plans for the week...
Monday~ Chicken and pepper skillet
Tuesday~ Spaghetti and Garlic bread with Salad
Wednesday~ BLT's with carrot sticks and dip
Thursday~ Pork Chops, stuffing and Salad
Sunday~ Stuffed peppers
Around the house... boys are playing nicely together right now, laundry is caught up, a stinky project awaits in my room (sigh) and it's time to get to DOING instead of sitting here thinking...LOL
One of my favorite things... Oh the choices! A sleepy Sunday evening spent after a day of much activity.
A picture thought I am sharing with you... Here is my oldest with the youngest. 'Shua is holding Derek and had the puppy on the other side of his lap. Derek just clibed up there and went to sleep on Fiday night. 'Shua is going to be such a great day someday!
