The Simple Woman's Daybook for March 13, 2017

For Today...



Looking out my window ... it's dark.  Not a hint of the coming sunrise.

I am thinking ... about all the things I have to do today.  Often on Mondays the list is long because I rest on the Lord's Day and don't work.

I am thankful ... for that day of rest and the time I get to spend worshipping or being with friends and family.

One of my favorite things ... is my extended family.  I got to spend time with them celebrating my nephew's tenth birthday. These cousins love each other and the adults and it's a loud, raucous time. Lovely.

I am wearing pajamas and sweatshirt. I dragged myself out of bed.

I am creating ... a series of blog posts interviewing homeschool moms on their hobbies. Some of these women are so amazing and I can't wait to introduce them - of their hobby if you know them already.

I am listening to ... the shower running downstairs. Well, it just turned off.

I am hoping ... that R-girl's ortho appointment goes well this morning. I hope the expander has done its work.

I am learning ... about resting in today and not planning too hard for the future. Individual steps ahead.

In my kitchen ... Mondays are leftover days, so we're going to have breakfast leftovers and dinner leftovers. It makes for an easier transition back into the work week.

In the school room ... I got my prereading done this weekend. This helps me to prepare assignments in the best way.


Post Script ... Every week I look forward to Karen's "Weekend Web Wandering" posts. She always finds fascinating articles that I hadn't seen and leads me some trails. If you aren't reading Living, Unabridged, you're missing out! I can't wait to catch up with her in person at GHC in Cincinnati :)


Shared Quote ... I 've decided to highlight one poster from WwW here each week. I appreciated this post from Aria on love and it's nature. And I very much appreciate that she was influenced by our pastor - may I so be influenced to partake in daily devotions.


A moment from my day ... so this lasted about 10 minutes. Bliss. (and unusual!)



Closing Notes: I'm hoping to get some posts extra up this week. One about }pacify{ and things I'm considering about that. One about pre-reading and keeping and how that currently looks in my home.  Besides Wednesdays with Words and Our Weekly Amble. It might be a busy posting week.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.
