Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY Tuesday, May 4th

Outside my window... The snow is finally gone and the sun is shining. The garden is waiting to be planted. The tulips are just starting to bloom and join the daffodils. The birds are busy building courting and building nests. I love to watch their dances.

I am thinking...How glad and at the same time sad that Perform It is over for the season. The kids put on a great show!

I am thankful for... A little down time this week. We have been running crazy with the play and all.

From the learning rooms...some math, some science, reading of course

From the kitchen...Tortillas for our tacos tonight and a bath of chocolate peanut butter chip cookies to share with friends tomorrow. A thank you for moving some furniture.

I am wearing...A khaki skirt and a purpler short sleeve t-shirt

I am creating...Still knitting the lace baktus have a crayon roll to make for Bekah. I would like to order a sundress pattern and fabric for Bekah too. And Hannah wants to sew some small projects still yet to be determined. I think we thumb through the book, One Yard Wonders.

I am going... To stay home as much as possible this week. We have been out way too much and it is starting to show. The girls are tired and snippy.

I am reading...Animal Farm

I am hoping...Doug's doing well at his second week of school!

I am hearing...Nothing but the songs of the birds outside. Beautiful, peaceful quiet!

Around the house...Today a hulling out of the girls rooms. Tomorrow we move furniture and Bekah into Hannah's room and Sarah into her own room.

One of my favorite things... Watching my girls grow up in to delightful, intelligent, caring, compassionate young woman. It is an honor to be their mother. They make me so proud.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Hannah's last sewing class, a trip to the bog to see the birds, book club, and a college graduation this weekend.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
