Simple Woman’s Daybook – October 9, 2012
Outside my window…The sun is shining!! It looks deceptively warm outside!
I am thinking…of lots of things. My brain has lots going on for the past few days 1.) The kids and I are working on our Neighborhood “You’ve been Boo’ed” gifts and we are super excited! Throwing around some ideas in my head on how to decorate the frames for the gifts so they’ll be super cute. 2.) Rora is feeling better (so it seems)… so yay! And, the rest of us have gotten over the yuck (FINALLY)…so yay, again! 3.) We are still in our homestudy process but just scheduled our last meeting! YEAH! SO looking forward to having the finished thing in hand! 4.) Really wish L’s school was more open to parent-involvement… I’m really not liking this switch from homeschool to public school! (But, she LOVES it) I’m willing to give it more time, though to see how it progresses. 5.) about Halloween… and Christmas!! And little guy’s birthday! I’m starting lists for what I need for each and … well, let the Christmas shopping/crafting begin!
I am thankful…for my awesome husband, great kids, and my family. Actually, I have a HUGE list of things I’m thankful for I AM enjoying this weather though…I LOVE every different season and love how they change!
From the kitchen…We have non-paleo chocolate chip cookies and non-paleo pizza leftover from our treat last night (for lunch today). And, for tonight… I’m thinking… Butter Chicken (paleo)
From the learning rooms…L is in school (it’s picture day!) and R and I are working through her Preschool worksheets. We are practicing letters A-E and her shapes. She’s got her colors down.
I am creating…crafts with R and our Neighborhood BOO gifts
I am wearing…My “Southern Chics” lime green LS shirt and turquoise sweats. Very colorful today!
I am reading…I’m in between books right now… have any you’d recommend? (Quick reads…maybe fiction? Would love a good fiction…)
I am hoping…to hear our homestudy is FINISHED soon Other than that… just hoping for a great day for my husband at work!
I am hearing…R playing
Around the house… I’m itching to paint rooms…well, not so much to paint them, but for them to be painted so I can re-decorate
One of my favorite things…quality time with my husband… and “dates” with our kids! We have so much fun together.
I am going…to run a few errands in a bit…
A few plans for the rest of the week…Crafting, homeschooling, a visit to the corn maze, haunted ghost tour with hubby, pumpkin patch and hayrides, my brother’s bday and making halloween costumes??
A picture thought…
R is LOVING trains right now. So, we borrowed a bunch of train books from the library and read them in style!! (R takes full credit for putting her hat on herself –goofy!)
A trip to the railroad museum… they were super excited. There was an ENTIRE room dedicated to a super cool train set up for model trains… they LOVED watching the trains go in and out of tunnels and through all of the display. They could have stayed in that one room alone, I think, for HOURS.
AJ was a trooper! I really should buy some teething pad attachments for his carrier…
