The Simple Woman's Daybook for January 13, 2014

FOR TODAY the first day of school!

Outside my a wet, grey, January day.  At least it isn't as blustery.

Praising God...that He makes all things beautiful in time ... and that His mercies are new every morning.

I am thinking...I need some of those mercies for tomorrow.

I am thankful...for the ability to educate my children at home.

In the kitchen...there is some leftover party food (just a tiny amount).

I am wearing...khakis, white shirt, denim vest.

I am creating...working on that poncho occasionally.

I am the grocery store.  Yippee.

I am wondering...what we'll be eating the rest of the week ...

I am reading...Out of the Silent Planet by C S Lewis and I'm going to start The Narnian by Alan Jacobs.  It's the Year of Lewis here.

I am hoping...our Narnia study is fun and we learn a lot through it.

I am looking forward to...a double date Wednesday night!

I am learning...about Chemistry too.

Around the house...Motivated Moms.  Get it.  That is all.

I am pondering...nap time.  I've been up entirely too many hours.

A favorite quote for today..."Actually, love is ultimately not a feeling at all, but an action, a dynamic activity. "  Louis A Markos in A to Z With C. S. Lewis

One of my favorite things...being back in school.  Even when it's hard.  Routine, in the long run, is so much better.

A few plans for the rest of the, piano, date night.

A peek into my day...
We make self portraits on the first day of school every year ...
