Simple Woman's Daybook~ Evening Edition



For Today...September 21, 2010
Outside my window...it is dark and the temp is finally falling into the comfortable range for sleeping. The stars are twinkling brightly around the glowing moon....the frogs are croaking, the birds are quiet and the air is still.
I am thinking...that I really should be in bed, but I just HAD to post a blog today~ LOL : )
I am thankful...that Dan arrived safe and sound in Washington. And that the Lord provided a job at just the right time.
From the learning rooms...math is still being finished up and tomorrow we are enjoying some homeschool gaming fun.
From the kitchen...Stuffed peppers was the star of tonight meal as requested by Dan and Patrick this week. Nothing else stellar coming out of the kitchen this week, just too hectic without another adult in the house to help keep a lid on things.
I am wearing...a navy knit jumper with a teal t-shirt. Bare feet, of course and my hair is in a bun after doing tonight's dinner dishes.
I am creating...this blog post, and then I'm going to create some dreams...hee hee
I am going...nowhere tomorrow, and I'm super happy about that!
I am reading...Psalms, the gospel of John, and "When Breaks the Dawn' by Janette Oke
I am hoping...that Dan enjoys his time in Washington, that I can handle everything while he's away and that he comes home safe and sound.
I am hearing...almost nothing, and it's glorious! I can hear cars passing on the distant freeway, Shadow breathing beside me and the clicking of the keyboard...that's IT
Around the house...the LR is tidy-ish, but I'm discovering more and more each day that in the same way as the mama sets the tone for the family, the kitchen sets the tone for the house. After being without hot water for 4 days, there were dishes piled everywhere and the whole house seemed cluttered and dirty. I washed those dishes and all of a sudden the rest of the house seemed just fine...isn't that strange?
A few plans for the rest of the week...running the Taxi Mama run on Thursday, homeschooling and cleaning each day, Game Night on Friday, the gym on Saturday and church on Sunday, sounds like a good week to me!
One of my favorite things...having a family to share my life. It's goooooooood!
A picture thought I am sharing with you...well, as always....so many choices. Let's see if I can narrow it down to just one...LOL! This is the sunrise from yesterday morning as we were taking Dan to the airport. I just LOVE the way the clouds look like cotton candy!
