The Simple Womans Daybook

FOR TODAY... March 15, 2010

Outside my window...it's dark. It's only 8:30 but I'm ready for bed! This time change is throwing me off.

I am thinking...that I need a haircut and color. I see some gray peeking out.

I am thankful for....my house in Texas. Something to look forward to.

I am wearing...blue plaid flannel pj pants & a t-shirt.

I am remembering...MOPS times.

I am going...to try to get serious about my eating healthy & exercising regularly. I think that's what I was going to do last week, too.

Some plans for the rest of the week...Conman's gymnastics tomorrow and stop by his eye Dr. to pick up his repaired glasses. Another library stop. Getting a pedicure with my daughter, sisters, niece, aunt & mom on Saturday, having lunch & doing whatever Miss Delaney Grace wants to! Then church Saturday night.

I am currently reading... Laying Down the Rails by Sonya Shafer, The Bible, The Original Homeschooling Series, Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont. I'm going to make myself finish at least the two easiest of these before I pick up another Jodi Picoult book.

I am hoping... that my fluffy kitty Dallas turns up. He's been missing since Friday morning.

On my mind...sleep.

From the learning room....started timing shorter lessons today with Conman. It appeared to be his idea, so it went well. Set the timer for 15 minutes, he worked on a box, if there was time left when he completed it, he got to play. Going to start implementing it with the other two also, following Charlotte Mason's short lesson recommendations. More attention is paid to the lesson at hand and less dawdling if they know it's either earn a few minutes break or have to continue the lesson later while everyone else plays. Brilliant!

Noticing that...the pictures I scrapbooked this weekend showed a much thinner me.

Pondering these words...Proverbs 31 Woman.

I am creating...scrapbooking pages. Yay!!

I am hearing...Absolutely nothing. Kiddos are tucked in for the night.

From the kitchen...Balsamic chicken, big green salad with tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers, feta cheese & toasted pine nuts, and cute little slices of Tuscan bread dipped in olive oil. Yum. Tomorrow is taco soup and cornbread casserole.

Around the house... Husband sprayed the weeds so they are dying. Plants and trees are blooming. Silvy, the inside cat, has become obsessed with the crickets hopping around in the lizard's aquarium. She sits and stares at it for long periods of time.

One of my favorite things...the t.v. show Hoarders.

From my picture journal... our Cherry-Plum tree in bloom.

Til tomorrow~
