Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, Monday, November 17th, 2008

Outside my window... it is a perfectly lovely day!  Sunny and 59°, very light breeze, aiming for 85° today.

I'm thinking...
I have so much to thank God for. I love my family and my church, and I am grateful for happy hearts in my home.

From the learning rooms...
Monday is our day off.  But we are learning from a great variety of resources: Landmark biographies, Usher's Annals of the World, Greg Landry's Homeschool Science Academy, Robert Krampf science videos, LFBC, foam bathtub letters, Bob Books, Rod and Staff, and our local library.

am thankful for...
not enough things.  Last week I attempted to only thank God in prayer as I took my daily (except for the days when the wind would have blown me into Mexico) two-mile walk. I succeeded for one mile, and then I was back to asking for more!    

From the kitchen...

Monday ~ Wild Rice Soup & Breadsticks
(This is not true.  This is from PlainJane's menu, and we have invited ourselves over to her place for supper.  Wild rice soup is our favorite!)

Tuesday ~  7-Bone Roast in the slow-cooker

Wednesday ~ Spaghetti?
Thursday ~ TBA

Friday ~ TBA
Saturday ~ TBA
Sunday ~ TBA

I am wearing...
western denim skirt, bright pink t-shirt, low cut socks

I am reading...
Psalms; Heidi; going to start two books by Stephanie Reed

I am hoping...
to have a smooth week! 

I am creating...
hee hee. Creating??
am hearing...
Emily jabbering, Amy and Elisabeth playing "photographer" and Tiny Dreams
Around the house ...
Already cleaned the bathroom this morning, woohoo!  Eventually will wipe up the desert that came in with our big winds last week and coated every object in the house.

One of my favorite things...
holding a small hand.   

I am going...
to try to get organized ahead of time for our Thanksgiving trip next week.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
the library, online Greg Landry classes tonight and Wednesday night, hair cut, baking.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

What is Carrotlover saying??

If you would like to join us in The Simple Woman's Daybook, please see our Hostess, Peggy for details.  You may also visit her for the Mr. Linky to many other Simple Women.


  1. She is saying---"Brandon don't pester me". LOL

  2. Hey, ya did a Daybook! Congratulations. Yes, come on over, we will be eating around 5 pm central time if that is okay with you guys - else we will just wait until you arrive. I made a double batch, but perhaps I should have made a triple batch. Fun to read your Daybook! I have no idea what Carrotlover is saying - but I love the expression on her face.

    We are having a few flurries here today, but nothing sticking, it just seems like it's all blowing around and not landing anywhere. It's almost noon and school is almost done dispite a big upstairs cleaning day - the girls are now heading downstairs to play vetenarian.

  3. Hi and thank you for your post. I would love to visit with you sometime...I am a very frequent vistor to your website...we seem to be "kindred spirits"'s so refreshing to see other's who are like minded in convictions and standards in the Christian walk.

    Thank you for being such a "light" in this dark world.

    Most Sincerely,

    Haha... not sure what she is saying, but I know I have seen that look before!


    Have a great week!



  5. What a beautiful little girl your "Carrotlover" is! In all her cuteness, I think she is saying, "Wait....there is one minute left before it's time to start."
