Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Jan. 25, 2010

Outside my window... The sun is shining! Boy-oh-boy, was it cloudy earlier, though. Very murky.

I am thinking... of where my cat might have gotten to. He’s been AWOL for a couple hours.

I am thankful for... The sunshine. (Do you notice a theme?)

From the learning rooms... typical Monday~science, writing, math, music, spelling, etc.

From the kitchen... Poor Man’s Chicken Fried Steak for dinner

I am wearing... jeans, pink top, silver earrings

I am creating... except for working on the everlasting dishcloths, nothing at the moment. I hope to begin work on my daughter’s pillows soon.

I am going... grocery shopping.

I am reading... the Jan./Feb. issue of Touchstone magazine (a Christmas present from dh).

I am hoping... that dh goes a loooooong time without another migraine.

I am hearing... the scratch of my dd’s pencil as she does her schoolwork and the sound of dh’s voice drifting down the stairs as he teaches an on-line class.

Around the house... Nothing in particular. Everything’s under control today housework-wise.

One of my favorite things... hard boiled eggs!

A few plans for the rest of the week: the haircut I didn’t manage to fit in last week, schoolwork (as usual), spending more time reading

Here is picture for thought I am sharing... Evidence that spring will get here eventually:

Thanks, Peggy!
