Simple Woman’s Daybook:











August 22, 2011

Outside my window... It is gonna be another rainy day… I was hoping for a cool beautiful day, but guess I will have to wait until later in the week.

I am thinking... As much as I like Summer, I’m looking forward to Fall. I really enjoy the cool weather, the pretty scenery and picking apples. Smile 

I am thankful for...  Many things, all of which I don’t take the time to appreciate. Think I will make that a new goal.

From the learning rooms... We are embarking on our 4th week. Can you believe that?? 4 weeks almost done. That means 5 more to go, and we will have 2 off. I need to start preparing for our next 9 weeks of school. Photocopying and preparing lessons. So far we are doing awesome. I am just so excited with how well it is all going. As always you can read more about our Homeschool Life Here.


From the kitchen...  Not really sure. We are struggling to come up with an idea. Last night we had Sloppy Joes, and that was a hit. Maybe a new casserole tonight. Welcoming any ideas thrown my way! Winking smile

I am wearing...  Comfy pants, a t-shirt and my flip flops. (I hate sneakers)

I am creating...  New plans for our next (lacking a word to use here. We can’t call it a semester, or term, or quarter.. so what shall I call it??) 9 weeks. Going to add Art in for this time… and we will see what else.

I am going... to have a fantastic weekend with a friend, relaxing and getting ready to come back and tackle everything that needs to be done. I have a very long list of To-do items to prepare for winter. Anyone wanna help me??

I am reading... I have a stack of books from Diana Palmer, Barbara Delinsky, and Debbie MaComber. Already read 4 in the last 2 days, so I will have them done before the end of the week, I’m sure.

I am hoping... that things calm down around here.. to get some cooperation, and get things done. I’m stressing about winter, cause I’m the only one willing to “REALLY” work.

I am hearing...  Monkey Man and daddy do some math.

Around the house...   I really need to do the dishes, vacuum the floors, and fold laundry.

One of my favorite things... Days where I remember why I am doing all this… and can sit back and enjoy some of it. Don’t feel like I get many of those anymore.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  School, Library, Mowing the lawn, garden work, Movies, and a getaway!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

My newest photo… I was trying to get a good pic, but it kept flying off. This one isn’t to bad.

I'm a new follower, I found you on the blog hop! I think your picture is great too! It must be very difficult to get a butterfly not in flight, I think that one's pretty amazing! Much better than I could do!

Wow, 4 weeks! I'm starting to feel like a slacker. We're not starting until after Labor Day. :) Love the picture of the butterfly. Stopping by/following from the TOS hop.
