Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today: February 1st, 2011

::Outside my window...is the Blizzard of 2011. Literally. It is coming down so thick and fast, we can hardly see the houses across the street. Getting about 2 inches per hour. They are predicting 18 or 20. We're already at 10.

::I am thinking...how I wish I could have a "snow day" and curl up with a book or a movie. Be lazy for a day. A whole day! Sometimes the life of a stay-at-home mom is frustrating.

::I am thankful for...my beautiful little children. And that God has big plans for their lives!

:From the learning rooms...learning about dictionaries, snow crystals, engineering, and a baking class this afternoon.

::From the kitchen...Ashleigh is helping try a new recipe for Fudgy Chewy Cakey Brownies.

::I am wearing...polar fleece jamma pants with a layer of long-sleeved and short sleeved tshirts.

::I am creating...

::I am going...to fix some dumplings to dump in the pot of chicken that's boiling.

::I am reading...The Reluctant Entertainer

::I am hoping...we don't get any more ice and lose electricity.

::I am hearing...kids chattering while they eat their peanut butter & banana sandwiches.

::Around the house...two kids napping, one finishing her lessons; a fresh-made bucket of laundry soap cooling in the kitchen.

::One of my favorite things...hot bubble baths.

::A few plans for the rest of the week: shoveling out from under 16 in of snow, staying in and doing lessons, games, baking.

:: Picture thought I am sharing...

We are doing a lot of shoveling ourselves here in NY. Be blessed.

I think stay-at-home-moms all deserve a spa day following a snow day. It is certainly no vacation!
