The Simple Woman's Daybook for September 22, 2014


Outside my window... it is cloudy and cool.  Feels like fall.

I am thinking... about today's lessons.  We're having a 15 minute break right now.

I am thankful... for a busy, yet productive weekend.

In the kitchen... a favorite fall meal: Acorn Squash with Sausage meatballs. Yum.

I am wearing... sweat pants with Buckeye t-shirt.  It's nice to have a home day.

I am creating... plans for future blog posts.  

I am going... to soccer practice. The two oldest practice on Monday night.

I am wondering... if return from break will go well. 

I am reading... Cotillion by Georgette Heyer. It seems to be one of Heyer fans' favorites, but I've not read it.

I am hoping... to get back to reading The Narnian by Alan Jacobs.

I am looking forward to... N-boy's first lesson on the organ.

I am going to be learning ... about Simplified Organization.  I need to start going through Mystie's eCourse of which I have heard so many wonderful things.

Around the house... vacuum.  Seriously. 

I am pondering... Crazy and Normal from the book Get Real: Sharing Your Everyday Faith Every Day,  our Sunday School book for this quarter. 

A favorite quote for today... " hard at being like [your] neighbors in the nonessentials, so that people can imagine that they too can be followers of Christ in the essentials." (pg 47 of Get Real) I'm not sure this is a favorite, but it's what I'm pondering.  And I'm not certain I agree.

One of my favorite things... is seeing how my children's diverse interests become manifested.  Each is doing their own interesting thing this year: M-girl is programming with First Lego League, N-boy is taking Organ, R-girl is taking a Drawing class.  So fun to see!
A few plans for the rest of the week ... SOCCER! Art, Choir, First Lego League, oh and I have to teach Bible Study ...

A peek into my day...
First time playing the organ. Love.

  1. I'm visiting from the Simple Woman's Blog....I am going to check out that eCourse. Boy do I need it. Have a great week

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting! I need that course too, I've just been too busy and mentally disorganized to start it.

  2. Enjoyed reading your Daybook entry. I think it's neat that your son is taking organ lessons. Not too many children are learning how to play it these days.

    1. He has been enamored by the organ since he was 3 or 4 years old. He is so excited to get to start learning.
