The Simple Woman's Daybook for March 19, 2012


Outside my [*OPEN*] window... is a stunningly beautiful day.  Crystal clear blue skies. 80 degrees. Birds tweeting.  It is March, isn't it?

I am thinking...
about the wonderful visit we had with Jason's parents yesterday.  Thanks for driving up again!

I am thankful...
for our church intern's new licensed status and excellent preaching. 

In the kitchen...
the vase full of the brightest yellow forsythia is cheerfully exploding joy.

I am wearing...
denim skirt and black square-necked t-shirt.  The children are all in shorts and t-shirts.  It's going to be hard to go back to bad weather when it comes.

I am creating... ironed clothing (soon).  I did laundry this morning and if I get it ironed this afternoon, I will feel completely accomplished.

I am going... to the library and grocery store this afternoon.  I hope Jason can meet us at the grocery and that the start of testing is going very, very smoothly.

I am wondering... how testing is going so far.

I am reading... well, I should be reading Peter Pan and finishing it for book club tonight (in case testing goes well enough for me to attend).  Secondarily, I should be reading The Roots of American Order for Cindy's book club which as of tomorrow I'll be two chapters behind. What I really am reading is Stanley Fish's How to Write a Sentence.  Because it isn't required by anyone.  I have issues.

I am hoping...  to do some more listening while I iron.

I am looking forward to... a couple of play dates this week.

I am learning... and considering more about Classical Education and how I want it to look in our house from this interesting post on the WTM Forum.

Around the house... I finally managed to get all the Christmas decorations down.  Mid March on a 75 degree day.  Yay me!

I am pondering... going back to Norms & Nobility or Abolition of Man or starting Tending the Heart of Virtue.

A favorite quote for today... “All studies, philosophy, rhetoric are followed for this one object, that we may know Christ and honor him.  This is the end of all learning and eloquence.”- Desiderius Erasmus

One of my favorite things... all three kids able to swing and pump their legs by themselves :)  And the giggling that I hear from the swingset.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
play dates, art with friends, Newcomer's Brunch at church (a favorite event)

A peek into my day...

He's getting water to take outside.
