The Simple Womans Daybook

FOR TODAY... April 20, 2010

Outside my window...dusk. Breeze is picking up. Hummingbirds are at the feeder.

I am thinking...that I'm glad I'm feeling somewhat better.

I am thankful....for the flexibility that homeschooling has to offer.

I am wearing...black workout pants, tennies and a green t-shirt that says "One Tough Cookie"

I am remembering...when I was more full of joy.

I am going...to stay home for most of this week again. Try and get my energy back. This sinus infection has knocked me for a loop!

Some plans for the rest of the week...not much. Since we didn't make our field trips last week, I'd like to plan something for this Friday if all goes well. I'm thinking of a rock and mineral museum about 40 minutes from our house that will tie in nicely with our California gold rush study.

I am currently reading... Laying Down the Rails by Sonya Shafer, The Bible, The Original Homeschooling Series, Setting Limits With Your Stong-Willed Child.

I am hoping... that my cough will go completely away-soon!

On my mind...some lists I need to put down on paper. School planning for next year, packing items, new items to buy, giveaway items....

From the learning room...."How Doth the Little Crocodile" for our weekly poem. Fairly smooth day today. Doing away with workboxes. They took way too much time for me to fill and plan. Goes along with my simplifying.

Noticing that...I lost a blog follower. I wonder what happened to her?

Pondering these words...Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Psalms 68:19.

I am creating...a clean house. A simple homeschool. A more peaceful environment for us.

I am hearing...the boys laughing and splashing in the bathtub.

From the kitchen...homemade lasagna, french bread and salad.


Around the house...cleaning. Laundry. Need to keep evaluating stuff for our move. (Which we have set a date for.)

One of my favorite things...my James Avery ring.

From my picture journal... I snapped this photo yesterday as I was getting ready to throw some laundry in the basket....




Have a wonderful day!
