The Simple Woman's Daybook

For today...
October 13, 2008

Outside my window...
early morning clouds have broken and left us with a mostly sunny, cool morning. A breeze is blowing through my open windows.

I am thinking...
about phone calls that need to be made today, errands that need to be run this week, and school planning that I need to work on

From the learning room...
we need to choose a new book for literature study; press pattern pieces and cut fabric for a pair of sleep pants; hopefully get those pants completed this week

I am thankful for...
the chance to participate in Paint the Park Pink on Saturday with my friends from the young women's cancer support group I am a part of. There were eight of us from the group who attended the survivor breakfast and did the one mile walk. I am also thankful that my girlie decided to walk with us this year! It was a fun morning.

From the kitchen...
hmmm...that area needs some help this week ; ) Let's see, when I looked at the menu yesterday to see what's ahead for the week, I noticed some empty spots. That's not a good thing! (well, it might be for me - I could stand to miss a few meals) My family might really like having meals this week though. I'm not sure what happened when I menu planned, maybe I just left some blank because we have a busy week and I wasn't sure how it was going to go. I think this will be my plan:
Monday - baked fish, salad, baked potatoes
Tuesday - still not sure here (it might have to be eat out because of our schedule)
Wednesday - leftover jambalaya
Thursday - from the freezer - Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, and a veggie
Friday - Sunday - those days are up to the guys - the girls will be gone!!!!

I am wearing...
denim shorts, sunflower tee, tennis shoes

I am reading...
nothing particular at the moment. I have forgotten to order the book I need for this month's book day so maybe I can get that and get started reading.

I am hoping...
to stay on task this week. Lots to do before a weekend trip.

I am creating...
working on Rachel's sewing project with her this week. Baby gifts are DONE!

I am hearing...
the washer and dryer, barking dogs, the breeze blowing my blinds

Around the house...
The kids and I worked on cleaning over the weekend so not much to do except keep it clean! I did some closet cleaning this morning.

One of my favorite things...
visits with family

A few plans for the rest of the week...
homeschool support group officer's meeting, quarterly oncologist appointment, homeschool co-op classes, Rachel and I are driving to Dallas to visit my brother and s-i-l. We'll be there for her baby shower as well as my Mom, two sisters, and three nieces - fun times.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
These beautiful girls are cousins. They are two of the nieces I can't wait to see this weekend!

This sounds like such a pleasant plan for the week! (And I love the picture in the background of your blog.)
