Simple Woman's Daybook--March 23, 2010

FOR TODAY~~March 23, 2010

Outside my window...It is cold and rainy after several days of beautiful weather, but at least my flowers are blooming!

I am thinking...how sweet the daffodils on my table smell.

I am thankful for...a kitchen crammed with food after grocery shopping yesterday. It is truly a blessing to have so much food available!

From the learning rooms...Act IV of Hamlet, adding fractions with different denominators, the music of George Frideric Handel, voice lesson later this week for Girl of the House

From the kitchen...hamburger stroganoff for supper tonight

I am wearing... jeans and a black cable knit sweater

I am creating...I hope to begin a springy skirt for Girl of the House soon as well as continue with Girl Out of the House’s pillows.

I am going...Nowhere today. Grocery shopping yesterday, Lenten service at church tomorrow. I love days where I don’t have to go anywhere.

I am reading... the March/April issue of Touchstone magazine and this book Man of the House got me for helping him administer the National Latin Exam to his students a couple weeks ago. There are some rooms in this book that I’d love to live in!

I am hoping...that the healthcare reform bill that just passed won’t be as bad as I fear.

On my mind…I’ve been wondering what our country will be like for my children, one of whom is still at home and one of whom is recently married and just starting out.

Noticing that…Girl of the House is improving in math. Math is not her favorite subject (and that’s an understatement!), but I can see her putting forth more effort and gaining ground.:-)

Pondering these words…”The King’s heart is a stream of water in the hands of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will.”~~Proverbs 21:1

I am hearing... The house is quiet except for the sound of the dishwasher.

Around the house...Sweeping floors and touching up the bathroom. I often wish we had a second bathroom, but then I'd have to clean it! There’s always a bright side . . .

One of my favorite things...The dappled shadows of the leaves on the grass on a sunny day. I’m looking forward to seeing that in a few weeks when the leaves come out.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Schoolwork, some sewing, hopefully some gardening if the weather cooperates

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

You can see more daybooks at Peggy's!

  1. love the daffodils, beautiful! I'm hoping the bill won't be that bad, or somehow get fixed, trying not to think too much about it...makes me anxious, sigh.
