The Simple Woman's Daybook for August 11, 2014


Outside my window... it's been a drizzly day.

I am thinking... about blogging, purposes, and what I'm doing.

I am thankful... for friends who kicked me into gear.

In the kitchen... the children are getting lunch together.

I am wearing... shorts and a flowery purple top. 

I am creating... assignment sheets for my kids during our Weekly Meetings.  Well the Weekly Meetings I hope to reinstate. Ours are generally just on Fridays.

I am going... to mail our Intent to Homeschool and pick up dog food this afternoon.

I am wondering... if the children will accomplish the shorter lessons I assigned today.  M-girl will, but the other two are putting up resistance.

I am reading... Bridget Jones' Diary. I don't like it very much, I liked the movie better.  [shocked silence from the crowd]

I am hoping... to finish The Liberal Arts Tradition before next Monday.  I'm so close.

I am looking forward to... Main Street Delaware Fine Art, Food & Wine date with my husband :)

I am learning ...

Around the house... we worked hard on the main rooms over the weekend.  The school room needs attention now.

I am pondering... how belief and unbelief look.  Last night's sermon on Jesus healing the paralytic from Mark 2 was great.

A favorite quote for today... "All that's left now for those redeemed by the Savior's blood is to celebrate the canceling of the "record of debt that stood against us" -- our monstrous slate of sin that He has "set aside, nailing it to the cross" (Col. 2.14)" --Nancy Leigh DeMoss in The Quiet Place

One of my favorite things... I got a smart phone this spring and a tablet. I love that so syncs between the two platforms. If I used Chrome as my browser, even my laptop would sync.

A few plans for the rest of the week ... Art with Friends, errands, date night, my niece's second birthday party.  It's all good.

A peek into my day... butterflies!
