The Simple Woman's Daybook


For Today...
October 6, 2008

Outside my window...
We woke up to much needed rain this morning! The rain has stopped but it's still cloudy with more rain expected later. I looked out my window a few minutes ago and found this little chipmunk at my flower bed. They are so cute but I don't like it when they burrow in the flower bed!!


I am thinking...
about what needs to be accomplished today, like catching up on laundry and paying bills

From the learning rooms...
writing lessons, a pretty regular day

I am thankful for...
the time I got to spend with my husband yesterday!! (I think I will give yesterday it's own blog post later today)

From the kitchen...
breakfast was French toast.
The menu for the rest of the week:
Monday - Chicken & Dumplings
Tuesday - Beef tips & Noodles
Wednesday - Spaghetti & meatballs
Thursday - Blackened flounder
Friday - Spicy Chicken Spaghetti
Saturday - Homemade Pizza
Sunday - Rob's Jambalaya

I am wearing...
jeans, Cinderella ballet t-shirt, tennis shoes

I am reading...
Hope to get back to "The Excellent Wife" and complete it

I am hoping...
to complete the baby gifts I have been working on

I am creating...
Those baby gifts referred to above. Finished the "minky" blankey Saturday!!

I am hearing...
the dryer just stopped meaning I need to finish my post and reboot the laundry

Around the house...
I finally got the fall decorations out Saturday!!

One of my favorite things...
being gone, then returning home to a nice clean house, thanks to my kiddos who did it without being asked. It made yesterday and even better day than it had already been.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
home school co-op classes, Mom's Renew, Paint the Park Pink

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



This is the chapel at the Boy Scout Camp ORR. I spent some quiet time alone here yesterday. What a beautiful site for a chapel, overlooking God's beautiful creation.

I enjoyed reading your daybook. Thanks for sharing it.

That's a stunning view from the chapel, absolutely beautiful. I love being alone with God in the open country.

Once, years ago, my parents went away without me and I cleaned the house while they were driving home - my mother seemed to be very pleased.
