Simple Woman’s Daybook – September 17, 2012
Outside my window…it’s overcast and the grass is wet…and needs to be mowed again!
I am thinking…of fun ideas to make the “read-aloud” book I share with the girls (Little House In The Big Woods) come to life. So far, I’m thinking… Taking them to the Homestead, making paper dolls, making our own butter, and making baby dolls! They love listening each night to story time and have so much fun doing crafts!
I am thankful…for new mercies every day! I am thankful for a God who writes love stories with his people, for my husband and my children, my other family, my friends, my church, my home, my neighborhood…just, everything!
From the kitchen…Oh! That reminds me! I need to put chicken in the crockpot and start prepping for supper. I think we are having curry tonight (chicken). We are still striving to eat mostly Paleo/Whole30-ish!
From the learning rooms…L is in school and R and I are working through story books – we brought home about 30 lbs in books from the library last week!! –And, the Letter C
I am creating…a jar full of date ideas – one set for my husband and I to do together and one set for us to do with the kids. Love pulling an idea out and JUST DOING IT! We’ve got some FUN stuff planned!
I am wearing…White sweat pant-capris and a navy tshirt.
I am reading…Approval Addiction by Joyce Meyer and the Jesus I Never Knew by Phillip Yancey
I am hoping…to get our paperwork for adoption turned in really soon But, other than that… I’m hoping to get lots of cleaning accomplished today in between homeschooling and tending to my babies We shall see! (I’m also okay with just playing if that’s how it works out!)
I am hearing…Aurora explain to me how she plans to color her coloring book
Around the house… Ha… around the house is a whirlwind of books and toys! We’ve been reading ALOT lately.
One of my favorite things…quality time with my husband… and “dates” with our kids! We have so much fun together.
I am going…NOWHERE today!
A few plans for the rest of the week…Today, I scheduled us a “quiet” day to just hang out and get things done. Then, the rest of the week are a couple of meetings/bible study/play-date/and a fun little rally at L’s school for the girl scout troop I’m heading up.
A picture thought…
My sweet and goofy girls at the festival this past weekend! Lots of fun and eating of chips, apparently! La, never one to give up a photo opp and Rora would only let me take a pic while she was stuffing her mouth full of chips — and yet, this photo is TOTALLY RORA right now. Goofy, likes to make people laugh, with a little dash of stubborn! AJ was too busy charming all of the women while i was taking photos, so I didn’t get one while we were there this time (but it’s not like my phone isn’t filled with photos of him!)
