The Simple Woman's Daybook for August 25, 2014


Outside my window... it's finally summer-like hot. 

I am thinking... that we need new soccer cleats for a couple of kids.

I am thankful... we had a wonderful church picnic on Saturday.
In the kitchen... we're back to strange eating and grocery schedules; soccer practices start tonight.

I am wearing... black tanktop and jeans shorts.  Comfy for at home.

I am creating... just finished assignment sheets for the week.  It will be miraculous if we finish anything if the work done this morning is any indication.

I am going... to buy more laundry detergent; I'm almost out!

I am wondering... just who N-boy's soccer coach is.  I know who is coaching the girls' teams, but don't recognize his coach's name.

I am reading... A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer.

I am hoping... to finish The Liberal Arts Tradition before next Monday.  I'm so close. I failed last week. Again. Third time's a charm?

I am looking forward to... the long Labor Day weekend.

I am learning ... about how Khan Academy works while R-girl and I take some time to slow down and refresh.

Around the house... re-instating chores and routines is painful. Still painful.

I am pondering... folding laundry.  Just pondering at the moment, though.

A favorite quote for today... 

One of my favorite things... hearing my kids play the piano.  Unfortunately, they've been playing new metronome.  
A few plans for the rest of the week ... SOCCER!

A peek into my day...

  1. Oh, I really want to read The Liberal Arts Tradition! I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say about it. :)

    1. It is so good! I really like it. Definitely worth the time, I just wish I hadn't taken a big break in the middle. Did you see this WWW from January?

      And, here, I thought I was being sneaky ;)
