Simple Woman's Daybook~~Feb. 16, 2010

The daybook has moved to Tuesday, so I didn’t miss it after all! Hurray!

FOR TODAY Feb. 16, 2010...

Outside my window...is snow, snow, and more snow!

I am thinking...how grateful I am that we got home safely from our three-day trip to Indiana where . . . guess what? . . . it was snowing most of the way home. Toward the end we could hardly see the road, and it was dark on top of that. But my husband and the Lord saw us safely home.

I am thankful for...my son-in-law, who is making my daughter very, very happy.

From the learning rooms...We are taking a much-needed break this week, though we will probably do some science experiments later in the week.

From the kitchen...oven fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, mashed potatoes, and peas.

I am wearing...my jeans that are too old to wear outside of the house (lol), purple sweater, my tried and true gold hoop earrings, and slippers.

I am creating...pillows for my daughter’s (Girl 1’s) couch. I haven’t made much headway on them, but at least they are started! I finished knitting another dishcloth.

I am going...nowhere today. It’s too snowy to drive, and I maintain the privilege of not driving on snowy roads. Tomorrow, my daughter (Girl 2) and I plan to hit the end-of-winter sales in search of a new coat for her . . . if my husband will take us, that is!

I am reading...Green Dolphin Street by Elizabeth Goudge. I bought this at the library sale for $2. I’ve heard so much about this author and am excited to try her out. So far, so good!

I am hoping...that interest in our house picks up. It’s been on the market for nearly two months, but we haven’t seen much activity yet. Could it be the weather?
On my mind…how glad I am to be home.

Noticing that…the flowers my husband gave me for Valentine’s Day (a bit early because we were out-of-town of Valentine’s Day proper) are beginning to fade.

Pondering these words… http://www.aei.org/article/23397 It encourages me to redouble my efforts at educating my own child and the students in my classes!

I am hearing...not a thing. The house is unusually silent.

Around the house...My main housekeeping days are Thursday and Friday, so I rarely have anything to say regarding this category. Laundry tomorrow.

One of my favorite things...my own bed. Hotel beds are just not the same.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Take daughter shopping, housework, school planning, reading maybe some sewing. This week is pretty low key because it’s a break week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...The snowy Indiana landscape (courtesy of Girl 2)

  1. I enjoyed reading your daybook, but your comments about you much more! I so appreciate people who can be honest and willing to change or at least change course trying to reconcile what they say and do with what they believe; that is one of my current challenges. Are you British?

  2. Thank you for visiting! No, I'm not British, but I am enamored with so many British things! lol

    Life is a journey in so many ways, is it not? I am not the same person I was when I was 20, 30, or even 40. But that's part of what keeps life interesting!

    I'm off to visit your blog now. :-)
