Simple Woman's Daybook

For today... May 17th 2010
Outside my window... birds sing, the sun shines warming us to a toasty 89 degrees and the air is heavy with the scent of fresh lilacs. Mmmmmm.....
I am thinking...
that too many thought are tumbling around in my head and I need to get them on paper before they disappear altogether.
I am thankful for... boys big enough to be helpers. They are tackling Mt Washmore right now! Hurray : )
I am wearing... same ugly housecleaning outfit as every week. Gonna shower and change before hubby comes home....poor thing has to look at me all evening!
From the kitchen... the counters are full of my hard work this AM. 3 loaves of fresh bread, a loaf of pumpkin for breakfast tomorrow, and a batch of choc chip cookies waiting for snack time.
As for meal plans....I'm only planning 6 meals this week since I always get interrupted at least once...LOL!
  • Lasagna with fresh garlic bread and salad
  • Pork chops with mashed potatoes and green beans
  • Tuna casserole with salad
  • Chicken breasts with brown rice and veggie sticks
  • Tacos with chips and salsa
  • Pizza

From the learning rooms... this week in MFW, we are travelling to the Middle East and studying about Saudi Arabia. Also learning about being eco-conscious and how we can help the Earth. In Abeka, lots of reading, working on parts of speech, division and fractions, and working on literature guide.
I am creating... sadly, nothing yet this week, but probably some scrapbook pages and some new note cards.
I am reading...
Here by my Candle by Liz Higgs Curtis
Pondering these words...
I am remembering...
that I should be doing something besides sitting at the computer...LOL! Dishes, here I come!
I am hoping...that I can finally start sticking to my workout routine and drop some weight.
I am hearing..."Beverly Hills Chihuahua" in the background...I think I'll make them turn it off. So sassy! NO LIKEY
I am going...to run errands tomorrow, like the bank, library and the park. I only have to work 2 nights this week, so I will be more awake that usual, and that's always a good thing : )
Around the house...it's pretty tidy (hurray) and the boys are folding laundry while I get the dishes done.
A few plans for the rest of the week...none yet. I haven't made my plans for this week yet. That's ok, isn't it??
One of my favorite things...being home with my boys, even though some days they drive me batty...ha ha ha! That's the glory of being home, I get to experience EVERYTHING with them!
A picture thought I am sharing... another pic from my "only at MY house' file...LOL! 2 Grown men having a tickle fight! Seriously!!
