Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Oct 12th

For today - Oct 12th, 2009 -

Outside my window...its a gray fall day. Neighborhood kids are out of school due to Columbus Day. So even though its chilly, lots of sweatshirts and pink cheeks running around out there, laughing and screaming...enjoying the last few moments of indian summer.

I am thinking...what am I thinking??

I am thankful for...God opening the doors for my mom to move down here. It will be such a nice blessing to have her near instead of 5 hours away.
I am wearing...jeans and a tshirt.

I am remembering...the crunch of falling leaves....smell of wood-fires burning...

I am fix a cup of hot tea.

I am reading...some homeschool blogs.

I am hoping...for a relaxing evening at home tonight. Warm and cozy.
On my mind....that baby Keira is going to wake up and need fed soon.
From the learning rooms...Ashleigh is doing very well with addition. Gets impatient though. She continues to enjoy phonics. We are using the Rod & Staff phonics curriculum. She has started reading some words and even sentences now.
Noticing phone is missing! Was wondering why my husband hadnt called on his way home yet....I must have left it around here somewhere....
Pondering these words...listening to Focus on the Family.
From the kitchen...going to cook up the wild turkey breast that my husband got this past weekend. Along with mashed potatoes, and corn.

Around the house...Logan is helping his Grandma bake biscuits to go along with the batch of pumpkin butter we made this afternoon. The kitchen smells spicy. Just right for fall :)

One of my favorite things...caramel candy corn! My sister introduced me to it last weekend. Love it even more than regular candy corn.

A few plans for the rest of the week....a quiet week at home. Catching up on school work after missing all last week due to flu. A doctor appointment. Homeschool co-op classes one afternoon.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

You might enjoy reading other ladies' daybooks or perhaps you would like to start keeping your own journal... check out Peggy's site: The Simple Woman's Daybook for a list.

What a beautiful baby. Aren't you lucky. I love babies so much. It sounds like you have a lot to do. You will love your Mom being close. Mine is 30min. away and I can run see her anytime. She is a blessing to me. Have a great week. Doylene

Indian summer? Lucky you!

I know the blessing of having my mom nearby!

Love Focus on the Family--I just can never seem to make listening to the radio work though!

I read your self-description in your sidebar to my husband, and he thought I was talking about me! Except he wondered about the "old farmhouse" love, since we LIVE in an old farmhouse...and there are definitely things I don't love :-)
