The Simple Woman's Daybook for August 6, 2012


Outside my window... it is sunny, but cooler. 

I am thinking...
about what to accomplish today.

I am thankful...
for a lovely visit to my in-laws on Saturday.

In the kitchen...
I haven't really cooked in a few days.  I don't know what the plan is ...

I am wearing...
jammies so far, but I'll get dressed soon.

I am creating... nothing really.

I am going... to get the school notifications sent in this week.

I am wondering... what we'll do today. 

I am reading... I finished A Circle of Quiet, I don't know what I'll read next, perhaps Metaxas' Bonhoffer.

I am hoping... to make it to the library soon.

I am looking forward to... a less-scheduled month.  July turned busier than I'd expected!

I am learning... more about my children.

Around the house... things are pretty straightened, but I do need to vacuum.

I am pondering... making my bed.

A favorite quote for today... see my commonplace entry from A Circle of Quiet.

One of my favorite things... the Olympics! 

A few plans for the rest of the week...
our new piano teacher comes on Wednesday!

A peek into my day... "Olympics" at Fundamentals on First Friday ...

  1. When I saw "fundamentals" I thought maybe you had joined Classical Conversations! :) Enjoy the cooler weather- we're expecting cooler temps with lots of rain all week long. Yahoo!

  2. I can't give up that much control :)

    I don't think we're supposed to get a lot of rain, but we could use it.

    1. I'm the same way- can't give up that much control. So we're doing a lot of their memory work at home! :)

  3. I haven't been cooking much the past few days either (I don't count boiling hot dogs, ha). And now my husband is in the kitchen cooking supper. A real treat!

    I hope you do read Metaxas' Bonhoeffer. It's wonderful. I read it last year and loved it. It's thick, but worth it.

    I'm looking forward to a less-scheduled month too. The summer was too hectic for my taste, but all things were good nonetheless.

    Thanks for sharing your Daybook.
