Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~ January 19th, 2009

Outside my window. . .it was sunny and warmer today. Ashleigh enjoyed being allowed to ride her bike, even for a short bit.

I am thinking. . . about by Mom's birthday tomorrow...wishing I could be there. Hoping she has a blessed day :)
From the learning room. . . we have stayed consistent with our lessons this week. I have noticed such improvment in Ashleigh's attitude. The one-on-one attention has been good for her. We started reading "Betsy Tacy" together at bedtime this week. This is her first real chapter book and she loves it...doesnt want to stop with just one chapter.

From the kitchen. . .I just cleaned-up supper dishes. Grilled chicken salad.

I am wearing. . .jeans, black hoodie sweatshirt, socks & slippers I am creating. . .a comforter for Ashleigh's bedroom makeover. I am going. . . to catch up some email and go to bed early tonight.
I am reading... Daring Chloe by Laura Jensen Walker
I am hoping. . . that God will guide our nation's new leader. That tomorrow will be a peaceful day.
I am hearing. . .the furnace running, again.
Around the house. . . the kids bedrooms are undone. We are sorting and rearranging so that they can have room to play and enjoy their rooms better.
One of my favorite things. . .a glass of cold milk and m&ms.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .teaching our MOPS group how to make an eye-spy bag tomorrow night; registering Ashleigh for the new semester of our homeschool co-op;

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... Ashleigh being wild & goofy!

Check out The Simple Woman's Daybook where you can read about the lives of many more interesting women.

What should have been yesterday's Daybook :)

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~ January 13th, 2009

Outside my window. . .it looks decievingly warm. We actually had a skiff of snow on the grass this morning.

I am thinking. . . about my day, and how I need to get busy!

From the learning room. . .Ashleigh is really enjoying phonics. She informed me yesterday how much she LOVES school.

From the kitchen. . .we are getting ready to bake a batch of banana bread.

I am wearing. . .sweatshirt & jeans & fuzzy slippers.

I am creating. . .a menu plan for the next week.

I am going. . .to work on updating my blog soon.

I am reading...The Stand-In Groom by Kay Dacus, I think.

I am hoping. . .to get to springfield this week. Need to trade a bunch of books at the used christian bookstore.

I am hearing. . .Logan singing and Ashleigh playing with her magnetic dress-up doll.

Around the house. . .I have laundry to finish...and more laundry to start. Vacuuming to do.

One of my favorite things. . .hearing my children laughing.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .finish cleaning the house. Finish shopping for MOPS creative activity night thats coming up. Write my part in a round robin story for a writing group.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... Logan & Ashleigh's first time at a japanese hibachi grill! They were facinated with the chef's show...and the chopsticks.

Fallen Behind

Wow, so I opened up my blog this morning planning on catching up my Simple Woman's Daybook, when discovered how far I have fallen behind in my blogging. When I first started my blog, I wondered if & how I would ever have time to blog very often. But to my amazment, I enjoyed it so much, that I found a way to work it in to my day (or night!) somehow.

Since my Dad passed away in September, I am dissapointed to say, I have let much of my life fall behind. Even homeschooling. Its been hard to get interested in anything. My mom was here over the holidays, and stayed until last week. Through prayer and determination, we both knew we needed to start fresh this the start of this new year.

So here I am. Armed with a planners & schedules (which won't directly keep me on task, but will at least motivate me). I know that God has given me peace & strength. And as long as I keep my trust and focus on Him, He will see me through this.

So here is to a new year. 2009

Expect some gradual changes & updates on my blog. New music. And more frequent posting :)
