Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Monday, May 18th. . .

Outside my window...

there is a Ruby Throated Hummingbird having his breakfast.

I am thinking...
about all we have planned this week.

I am thankful for...
Spring - the amazing rebirth of the world after the long winter always rejuvenates me. It forever reminds me of the resurrection of our savior

From the learning rooms...
we are headed to the frog pond for an adventure lead by Tin Mountain. Continuing to work on the girls science fair projects. It is time to start putting the finishing touches on them.

From the kitchen...
today, not much. My lovely daughter, Sarah, is in charge of dinner and we are packing a picnic lunch

I am wearing...
my favorite denim skirt with grey leggings, purple fleece sock, white t-shirt and purple fleece pullover, my mud boots are waiting by the door.

I am creating...
felt spring flower fairies for the nature table

I am going...
to try and be a more Godly woman. Starting with the small stuff, because if I can't do what HE has called me to everyday, how can HE call me to do something more?

I am reading...
I Love Dirt by Jennifer Ward

Clean Home, Clean Planet by Karen Logan

Charlotte Mason Companion by Karen Andreola

I am hoping...
Rebekah stays asleep just a little while longer, and that all the stuffy little noses are gone when they all wake up.

I am hearing...
the cheep-cheep of our 19 week old chickens

Around the house...

the kitchen table is covered with plants just waiting to be planted in the garden when the weather warms up a bit, the chicken coop is almost finished, and I really need to go to the dump and mop the kitchen floor!

One of my favorite things...
is sneaking out to weed my garden with a cup of coffee before anyone else is awake. I find this so relaxing and it is productive too!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Music Class and Karate on Wednesday, to the farm to pick up milk and yogurt on Thursday, Canoeing in the Bog on Saturday

**finish decluttering my desk**

***change over the girls' clothes from winter to spring/summer***

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Many hand make light work!

A Simple Woman' Daybook is hosted by Peggy. Take a peek into other Simple Women's Daybooks or join in if you like.


  1. I would love to have some chickens! I think it is a great idea...I just can't seem to convince my husband!

    Sounds like you have a great week in store, enjoy!

  2. I got my seeds and plants done at the weekend. More to go in every other week of certain things to keep us cropping through the season.

    I'd love to keep chickens too, but our whole yard is only 15 feet along each side!

  3. Thank you for sharing
    I am looking to pick up chickens, we have the coop already. I want laying hens not the babies not willing to wait 6 months, again.

  4. Oh, I'm so jealous of the hummingbird in your yard. We seem to have such a difficult time attracting them. Maybe we don't have many in our area. But they are so beautiful and interesting.

  5. I enjoyed your thoughts in your "thankful" and "going to" sections. The first one echoes my feelings of spring and the second is also my need. :0)

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. I love what you said: "I am going... to try and be a more Godly woman. Starting with the small stuff, because if I can't do what HE has called me to everyday, how can HE call me to do something more?" I couldn't agree more!


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
