The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY...September 14, 2009

Outside my window...another dreary, overcast day makes me realize that autumn is just around the corner.

I am's nice to be creating a Daybook Entry again after a break for summer.

I am thankful for...the blessing of friends in my life: homeschooling friends, church friends, ballet mom friends, longtime friends, and probably best of all - sister friends!

I am wearing...jeans and last year's Paint the Park Pink tee shirt.

I am remembering...what a great summer I had! I enjoyed having so much time with my sisters, brother and their families.

I am creating...this blog post for the second time - it disappeared last night when I uploaded a pictures so I'm doing my best to re-create it.

I am drive Rachel to ballet tonight and run a couple of errands while she is in class.

I am reading...I've been reading Karen Kingsbury's Redemption series, followed by her Firstborn series. I have two books left in the Firstborn series and I can't wait to read them. I checked out the previous two on Thursday and had them both finished by Sunday evening : ) This week, Rachel and I will start reading "Know Who You Believe", "Know What You Believe", and Know Why You Believe" by Paul Little as part of her schooling.

I am hoping...Allan will get his car fixed this weekend so I don't have to share a car with him another week! I'm really not trying to be selfish : ) It just makes an already crazy schedule even crazier!!

On my mind...the phone call I have to make to my health insurance company. Asking the Lord for favor : )

From the learning rooms...finally getting back in the routine. On the schedule this year: English, American Lit., American History, Biology, Spanish, Algebra I (almost completed) and then Geometry, Fine Arts/Photography Class, and Home Ec.

Noticing that...there are birds singing in my backyard this morning. They've been quiet lately. Saw a cardinal for the first time in a while.

Pondering these words...from Sunday's sermon: "Faith that works, is Faith that works"

From the kitchen...
Monday - St. Mary's Stew
Tuesday - Crockpot Layered Steak and Potatoes (thanks Kelli!)
Wednesday - Turkey Club Pizza
Thursday - Crockpot Saucy Pork Chops
Friday - work dinner @ Shogun

Around the house...a little lingering laundry and a little ironing

One of my favorite things...laughter and silliness of teenage girls

A few plans for the rest of the week: the usual driving Rachel to ballet and photography class this week, dinner with a couple of ballet mom friends Wednesday night, a nice quiet weekend at home

From my picture journal...
Ballet Company swim party - they wouldn't let the rain stop them from having a blast!
