Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today... November 30, 2009
Outside my window... It is rainy and cool....making me want to just sit and read with a cup of tea.
I am thinking... that any day that I can use an educational video for school instead of worksheets is a wonderful thing!
I am thankful for... So, so, SOOOO many things, but today on the top of my mind is my relationship with 'Shua and Lauren. I treasure the times we spend together. They bring their triumphs, heartaches, questions, and little things to me and I am honored, humbled and OH so grateful to be such a part of their lives.
I am wearing... Ack...ugly brown capris and a worn out Curves t shirt. My cleaning clothes
I am remembering... that Dan hates clutter and I need to do a better job of keeping it contained...oops!
I am Going... for today, just work. The rest of the week...well, mostly the same...LOL! Maybe a trip to the library, some small errands and a grocery trip.
I am Reading... Robinson Crusoe, Hero Tales and Going to Green
I am Hoping... to wake up looking like Angelina Jolie someday....Muahahah! Just kidding! I'm really hoping to get the house clean this week...and I mean REALLY clean!
On my Mind... Christmas, and how unprepared we are this year. Last year at this time, we were pretty much done, and this year we haven't even started. Haven't even talked about what we are done. Haven't even figured out where the money is coming from. I'm a bit concerned, but I'm trusting that between crafting and Dan's vacation money, we will do just fine.
From the learning rooms... the boys are watching an educational geography video about the US. We are on week 4 of MFW and are starting a unit on North America. We are still playing catch up with ABeka, but are making good progress.
Noticing that... those old fogies from my youth were right...time DOES go by faster as we get older...where HAS this year gone?!? Pondering these words...
From the kitchen... there's a man in my kitchen making turkey soup...I love that! This week, the kitchen is getting a DEEP cleaning, so we are eating a less 'exciting' menu, less prep, less mess, less time spent in there so I have time to clean in...LOL
Thursday~Mac and cheese with hot dogs
Around the house... I am only halfway done with my to do list for the day, but I still have time to finish. So onto the kitchen....each day has it's own DEEP clean day this week. The bathroom is done, thanks to Dan and horrible toxic chemicals. The kitchen is today, DR is tomorrow and LR is Wednesday. Then on Thursday, a quick touch up on all public rooms, a full Home Blessing and some extra dusting. Friday, game night prep. Saturday...NOTHING! ; )
One of my favorite things... new friends to invite to game night. YEAH! And also, a cool rainy day to just sit and read.... it will happen someday!
From my picture journal... Shouldn't everyone be this happy and this relaxed at some point during their life??
