Simple Woman's Daybook




FOR TODAY Monday, February 23, 2009...


Outside my window...The sun is blazing and the wind is blowing so that my screen rattles in it’s frame. I see little sticks on the ground that we will have to gather up to add to the “stick pile”. I see a board the children left on the ground after playing some sort of make-believe game.



I am thinking...that the sunshine feels good on my neck as it shines on me.



I am thankful for...the news that I will be a Grandmother late in the year.



From the learning rooms...a tour of Europe and a look at the Church in the year 1000 before we head into the Norman Invasion next week. I love my Truthquest!



From the kitchen...Whole Wheat Cinnamon-Raisin bread rising & yellow split pea & sausage soup for lunch.



I am wearing... blue jeans and a bright pink blouse with ruffles, socks and my ancient black slides.



I am creating...still working on that quilt for Crista, must finish it!!!



I am going...nowhere outside of my domain today except to pick up hubby from work.





I am hoping...to get the house ready for company tonight.



I am hearing...Isaac putting away dishes and singing and Shayna working on memory verses.
Around the house...typical Monday things, cleaning up after Sunday, backlog of laundry, just trying to get things ship-shape for the week. On top of that, a visitor or three for dinner expected.



One of my favorite things...my transferware bowls (Friendly Village), for our morning oatmeal.



A few plans for the rest of the week: Getting on a new schedule, back to early rising and a new thing-breakfast & devotions with Papa before he is off to work.



On Friday & Saturday I’m going to the quiltshow. I’m so looking forward to it (have been all year)!



Here is picture thought I am sharing... My favorite from last year’s show:



Thanks again to Peggy at Simple Woman for the DayBook project.

Congrats on the grandbaby! I'm sure Mama's going to turn a very pretty shade of green when she hears. <3
