The Simple Woman's Daybook ~ May 19, 2007




FOR TODAY...

Outside My Window...leaves are waving, sun is shining, branches bend gently

I am thinking...it would be nice if my children would talk more quietly but I'm thankful they are happy and exuberant. I am thinking about my husband on his way to see a client in Arkansas.

I am thankful for...my children. My dog lying quietly at my feet. A new book I picked up at the library. The gentle, warm wind. Neighbors hiring my sons to mow their lawns. My son's eagerness to get his new lapbook.

From the kitchen...chocolate cake. My first from scratch.

I am wearing...grey knit pants with a violet t-shirt.

I am creating...children strong enough to withstand worldly pressures. Also a tiger lapbook.

I am going...to begin a new term with my children while preparing the materials for fall---if I can wait that long to begin it.

I am reading...Abraham: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths, by Bruce Feiler. I saw the audiobook at the library and searched for the book. It looks interesting although I know very little about it.

I am hoping...that my wrist heals quickly. It has been hurting lately, and I bought a brace to immobilize it so it gets strong again.

I am hearing...sounds of eating. My boys made Ramen for lunch (their favorite).

Around the house...beautiful green. Green lawn, green trees. Well cut lawns adjoining (remember those wonderful neighbors that hire my sons?) A brand new garden filled with lettuce and spinach with a few other things. A picturesque swing.

One of my favorite things...anticipating a new read.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: Mostly, I'm just planning to help my kids do their workbooks, launching the new term. I'm also getting ready for parents to arrive!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
