The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today...

Outside my window... the sun is shining and my newly planted flowers are actually growing!

I am thinking... today marks the beginning of a very busy week!

From the learning rooms... Clay is already downstairs working on his school assignments! Today begins our last push of school until summer break. I think we have 6-7 weeks left. In history, we are studying the southwest states of the U.S. this week.

I am thankful loving husband and children.

From the kitchen... I will put a roast and vegetables in the crock pot. We are having chocolate chip and blueberry muffins for breakfast. Lunch will be leftovers or sandwiches.

I am wearing... khaki pants, orange and pink t shirts

I am reading... Just Around the Corner Part 2 by Teri Maxwell. I will begin a new read aloud with the children in a few minutes, the last book in The Indian in the Cupboard series.

I am hoping...that I find time this week to finish organizing and storing my loose photos.

I am creating...a plan for putting a computer in our storage/project room. I have to clean out and reorganize this room, and then pick a good place for the computer and its desk.

I am hearing...Sam talking to me while he is climbing all over me while I type this post!

Around the house...we will resume our regular chores and housekeeping schedule after a week off from our routine due to spring break.

One of my favorite things...hugs from my children

A few plans for the rest of the lessons for the children, monthly Walmart shopping; art lessons for the children on Wednesday and Thursday; Wednesday--church; Friday--visiting with friends. We will also be running 4 days this week, and I will run 11 miles with Olivia on Saturday. I also plan to finish going through all of my stored clothes to see what Leah can wear this spring/summer.

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

  1. Your week does sound busy! You only go to Wal-Mart once a month! That's awesome. I don't want to say how often I go ...

    Blueberry muffins sound yummy!

    I enjoyed your daybook and hope you week goes well.

  2. I want to swap out my winter clothes for summer this week, too! Happy Monday!
