The Simple Woman's Daybook for February 15, 2016

For Today...

Outside my window.... is a snowy ground and a white sky. Everything looks monotone.

I am thinking... that walking the dog in snow & ice sounds miserable. I'm going to have to walk the house for steps today.

I am thankful... for modern medicine - antibiotics - and The Little Clinic at Kroger which got M-girl in on a Sunday morning so she could get a scrip for strep throat. Poor baby.

I am wearing... black sweatsuit and Buckeye tshirt. It's cold here and I'm not going anywhere.

I am creating... lots of underlines in Awakening Wonder. How shall I every choose what to think about more deeply?

I am going... to part two of Sarah Mackenzie's Focus and Align class in Read Aloud Revival membership. The first half was amazing and brought out such thinking for me.

I am wondering... what new thinks she'll cause me to think this week!

I am reading... the same things: When You Pray and Awakening Wonder and CM stuff.

I am hoping... to advance in several of those books.

I am learning...a fuller-orbed concept oof how wonder and leisure and rest and work and joy all piece together via Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.

In my kitchen... I never went to the store last week, so we've been limping along a bit. Tonight: frozen ravioli.

In my garden... ice. snow. I think I saw deer tracks yesterday.

In the homeschool... we had our best Monday ever. We looked up video of Masada, Mount Blanc, and the Marianas Trench. We "acted out" the reading from This Country of Ours about Howe, Clinton, and Washington. The children drew maps of the house because of their reading in Long's geography. And nobody complained about Madam How and Lady Why, but interacted with the ideas. I think we might be getting somewhere.

A favorite quote for today... “When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” C.S. Lewis.

A peek into one of my days...

One of my favorite things...We love our Art with Friends group! We have so much fun together, especially at the holidays ... we made heart animals on Friday. It's awesome :)

From the board room... The moms in our Art with Friends group keeps a shared book for ideas of projects we might like to try. I love that we can all pin to it.

Post Script... Are you signed up for Mystie's webinar about homeschool checklists? It's sure to be helpful and fun!
