The Simple Woman's Daybook for March 10, 2014

Outside my's dark.  Maybe a bit warmer, though.

Praising God...for a fun trip to the zoo with my children.

I am thinking... about books on India.  Do you have any suggestions for narratives set in India for a strong 9 year old reader who is interested in the country because of reading Amy Carmichael biographies? She wants to learn more about the culture, people, and land.

I am thankful... for my wonderful husband.  He works so hard and does so much for our family.
In the kitchen... the groceries are unpacked and coffee is ready for the morning.

I am wearing...jeans and a new print top.

I am creating... plans for craft night with my sisters-in-law on Saturday.  Need to come up with some tapas and wine ...

I am bed soon.  It's late and I should get up early.

I am wondering... how tomorrow is going to go.  We did a slightly lighter day today - all work together - after a big weekend with late nights and the time change.  Still had some melt-downs, but the zoo was good.

I am reading...Till We Have Faces and should work on some of those other ones on my list ...

I am hoping... tomorrow goes well.

I am looking forward to... my nephew's birthday party.  He's going to be 7!

I am learning... about first declension nouns in Latin. Fun.
Around the family would appreciate some clean laundry. I need to figure out how to accomplish that while doing school.  I struggle.

I am pondering... well, now, laundry.

A favorite quote for today..."Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children." Ephesians 5:1

One of my favorite things... visits to my in-laws'. They are so wonderful and welcoming and we have so much fun there.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Titus 2 meeting, school, piano. Craft night!
A peek into my day...

  1. The only book set in India that comes immediately to mind is Gloria Whelan's Homeless Bird. I read it in library school 10+ years ago now, so my memory is sketchy. I'm not sure it's appropriate for a 9 year old, so definitely preview it. Whelan's is really a wonderful writer.

    1. One of the Book a Week people recommended it, too. I had already put it on hold at the library and am just getting ready to pre-read. I hope it isn't too much because I'm having a hard time finding anything She's reading the YWAM Amy Carmichael book now ...
