The Simple Woman's Daybook for June 29, 2015

For Today... Monday, June 29, 2015 ... whoa, it's been two months!

Outside my is grey, rainy, and cold at 59* F.  I'd complain, but I see what those in the PNW are dealing with ... I'll take cold over too hot any day.

I am thinking... about returning to regularly scheduled blogging *and* a 31 Days series in October.  

I am thankful... that last week's VBS at our church was a huge success.  The children learned so much and had so much fun.  My friend Meg did a great job with it!

I am wearing... long sleeved, long legged, pajamas.  It's not warm here at night.

I am creating... a set of meditations on "I am, I can, I ought, I will" for upper elementary students.  I'm to the I wills ... I shouldn't say for upper elementary 'cause it's convicting me, too.

I am going... grocery shopping tonight. I should make a menu ...

I am wondering... what we want to eat this week.  

I am reading... garbage. I need to get back to my book bag and read better things.  You can tell my blogging takes a hit when I'm ensconced in Flufferton Abbey.

I am hoping... in that promise that all things will be made new.  Even so, come Lord Jesus.

I am learning... 

In my kitchen... meals have been spotty and irregular and off the cuff.  I really want them to get back to normal.

In my garden... Jason and the children weeded (for VBS money) and planted the free tomatoes plants from a friend.  They're surviving better than they were.

In the homeschool... we are finishing up Term 2 Week 4 and 5.  So behind.

A favorite quote for today... "Hear O Israel, the LORD your God, the LORD is one."

A peek into one of my days... last week I had a full van going to VBS.  

One of my favorite things... I love VBS, then I love it to be over.  I'm glad it is only one week a year.

From the board room... I've started a board for ideas I think can be used during Sports Seasons:

Post Script... Mystie's school planning series, if you aren't following it already, is one you ought to follow! So much detail and clarity as to why she makes the choices she makes and the plans.  Love it.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.


  1. Good to see you back - I miss it when you don't blog.

    1. Hi Anna, it is good to be back. I miss it when I don't blog too ... it has been just one more thing, you know?

  2. Oooh, a 31 dsy series! I'm impressed. I made a commitment to blog every day during the month of April. It wasn't as hard as I had anticipated but I blogged about anything and everything; I didn't have a theme. I would think that would make it trickier. I will be cheering you on if you decide to carry this out.

    1. Thanks! I'm excited about the idea; it's always the execution though ...

  3. I always like reading your daybook entries. I'm sorry I've slacked off on Wednesday Words, I just can't seem to keep up every week. I do try to read what you and others share, but many times I only have time to actually read the books and not write about reading them. :)

    1. Thanks, Heather, I've been slacking and hit-or-miss this summer. I would very much like to return to cosistency. Join when you can, I love your posts when you join us but believe in life before blogging :)
