The Simple Woman's Daybook for April 4, 2011

FOR TODAY April 4, 2011 ...

Outside my window... it is getting dark after a day of thunderstorms

I am thinking... "Structure brings freedom" and "Pride turns virtue into vice."

I am thankful for... a wonderful conference with good companions: Anna, Heather, and Jeanelle. Exhausting and encouraging.

From the learning rooms... catchup week after last week off; we'll be doing lessons Wednesday through Friday instead of our usual routine.

From the kitchen... the refrigerator is looking a mite bare ...

I am wearing... jeans and a red shirt. Worked on cleaning the basement today.

I am creating... nothing, really.

I am going... to watch some of the basketball game in a few minutes.

I am reading... The Essential Russel Kirk. I read an essay entitled "Why I am a Conservative" last night and was blown away.

I am hoping... that my sinuses will return to normal sooner rather than later.

I am hearing... the sump pump ... often :(

Around the house... we almost have a moat! (OK, not really, but we do have a creek in the back yard, I think.)

One of my favorite things... the sump pump ... not glamorous, but gets the job done :)

A few plans for the rest of the week: errands tomorrow instead of Thursday. Maybe we'll have a backward week with lessons too. Just for fun :)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
