Simple Woman's Daybook--Feb. 1, 2010
FOR TODAY~~Feb. 1, 2010
Outside my window... The sun is shining even though it was a chilly 14 degrees when I woke up this morning!
I am thinking... about my daughter’s upcoming 13th birthday and how 13 years ago today was her due date.
I am thankful for... Any and all sunshine we see at this time of year!
From the learning rooms... We are four lectures away from finishing our Viking study using The Teaching Co.’s The Vikings.
From the kitchen... Spaghetti
I am wearing... Jeans and a brown sweater, slippers (just like a couple Mondays ago! lol)
I am creating... Dare I say it? More dishcloths. lol It takes me a long time to finish one because I only have a few minutes to knit each day (if that).
I am going... On Mondays we take my daughter to confirmation class, and then my dh and I hit Wal-Mart or the grocery stores. Today is a Wal-mart day. I also need to make a quick stop at the post office.
I am reading... The Jan./Feb. issue of Touchstone magazine. I’m almost finished. (Not much reading time this past week.)
I am hoping... For an early spring.
On my mind ... Our upcoming move
Noticing that... I like the idea of winter more than I like winter itself!
Pondering these words... by Theodore Roosevelt: "Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are."
I am hearing... The birds chirping at the bird feeder.
Around the house... I’m hoping to give the mud room a good cleaning this week.
One of my favorite things... Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
A few plans for the rest of the week: Finish up our homeschool support group newsletter, prepare a guest lecture on the history of classical music for next week
(1000 years of music history in 90 minutes. Yikes!)
Here is picture for thought I am sharing... This is a picture of my two daughters taken a couple years ago. The younger turns 13 this week.
