Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook

Check out The Simple Woman's Daybook and take a little look into the day plans and thoughts of those of us who are focusing on simplicity...the beauty of the everyday moments around us.

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~ Feb 23rd 2009

Outside my window. . .its a cheerful, sunny almost-spring afternoon. Ashleigh is running around the front yard...jumping rope with little friends.

I am thinking. . . about what a great weekend-getaway we had. 2 days & nights in Branson.
From the learning room. . . well, we didn't get to school today. Unpacking and catching up on laundry! Maybe tomorrow?

From the kitchen. . . meatloaf with a new seasoning mix I picked up at the Amish Country Store. Trying to decide on how to fix the potatoes....probably baked. Corn on the cob sounds good :)

I am wearing. . .volleyball t shirt and yoga pants. Stretchy & comfortable...will be needing maternity clothes soon!

I am going. . .to plan a Comedy/PJ night for next week's MOPS meeting. We'll have pajama contest, popcorn, and I'm trying to get a hold of Anita Renfroe's new dvd.

I am reading...emails, and The Simple Woman's Daybook blog

I am hoping. . .to have enough energy left this evening to get on the treadmill.

I am hearing. . .the ice cream truck coming down the street! How am I supposed to convince my kids it is TOO COLD to eat ice cream?!

Around the house. . . suitcases still need unpacked.

One of my favorite things. . .a store we discovered in Branson - Bath Junkie - where you pick from hundreds of essential oils and they mix up whatever bath-type product you your fragrance & color.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . . making a menu-plan for the rest of the week, grocery shopping, starting a new book, our church's 30-somethings get-together where we will create amazing and crazy hamburger toppings (kinda like a Fuddrucker's theme)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... while in Branson, we visited the Titanic Exhibit. The tour was about 90 minutes long and very, very, neat. Brought history to life. Was fascinating and sad at the same time. I will say, I had a very emotional time getting through the tour! sigh...pregnancy hormones :)

Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook

Check out The Simple Woman's Daybook for a list of other ladies Daybooks.

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~ Feb 16th 2009

Outside my window. . .the bright sunshine is very deceiving. It looks so spring-like, but is actually very brisk. Our yard is full of robins, back from the south.

I am thinking. . . who can I find to babysit at the last minute for tomorrow!

From the learning room. . . our 2nd semester of homeschool co-op classes have started. We now are involved in classes every Thursday, so that is something to get used to. Ashleigh loved the Art Workshop last week. I will be helping to teach a 2 hr scrapbooking class.

From the kitchen. . . homemade doughnuts! A lot of work, but so worth it. We don't get them very often.

I am wearing. . .flannel jammie pants & a tshirt

I am going. . .to figure out something for lunch. Kids have eaten, but I am hungry...while being nauseas at the same time.

I am reading... Growing Kids God's Way-Reaching the Heart of of Your Child With a God-Centered Purpose. On wednesay nights our church is watching a dvd series that goes along with the book.

I am hoping. . .for a warm spring...soon!

I am hearing. . .Ashleigh & Logan chattering & playing. Ashleigh trying to convince me we need a treehouse with a pulley system to haul stuff up & down.

Around the house. . . I need to catch up on some cleaning. I have let too many things go.

One of my favorite things. . .the smell of a clean new baby.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . . ob & ultrasound appt tomorrow, MOPS Spa night, library storytime, a late Valentine Date with my husband

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... Logan, one nice day last week.
