The Simple Woman's Daybook for August 15, 2011

FOR TODAY   August 15, 2011...

Outside my window...
cloudy, grey, cool ... opened all the windows :)

I am thinking... about prairies and the travel pioneers had to do to get through them.

I am thankful... to have finished the Preservation Parks Letterbox adventure for the first time this summer!

From the learning rooms... project day ... trace human bodies to start that science project and start paper mache Egyptian burial mask (maybe ... pray for us!)

In the kitchen... quiet after a busy weekend. [ah] "Good" hot dogs I think.

I am wearing... shorts and Buckeye t-shirt ... 'tis almost that wonderful time of year!

I am creating... still working on those Christmas presents ... and probably will be for a while!

I am going... to the Library today :)

I am wondering... why someone awoke on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

I am reading... about the same ... which means not much.

I am hoping... to read some more this week.

I am looking forward to... wedding shower at church. I need to make certain to get what I need for that.

I am hearing... children coloring. Finally calm.

Around the house... laundry is going, ironing ... oh that ironing ...

I am pondering... science and history

One of my favorite things... open windows in August :)

A few plans for the rest of the week: library, wedding shower, piano, housewarming for new family at church, ... a lot of fun :)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing... later, from our letterboxing yesterday.

Hosted by The Simple Woman's Daybook


  1. Good job on the letterboxing! :) Are you using the AiG for human body?

  2. Yes, we're using AiG for anatomy and this book: My Body which I wish I had bought as a download from CurrClick instead :(

  3. What is that book- I'm assuming work pages to color & fill in? Can you reproduce the printed book?

  4. Yes, it is reproducible (which I'd rather do from PDF, personally).

    You outline trace your child on paper, then as you go through your study copy, color, cut and paste the parts where they go on your tracing. We did the skeletal system today and will read about muscles later this week so did muscles today too.

    The AiG has a {small} skeleton that you cut out and brad together, adding other parts later, and we did it too, but I really wanted to try the big bodies :)

  5. My mom had the My Body book, and it is one of the things I still remember from those early years of homeschooling. :) I did it with A several years ago, and hope to do it again soon with D and E.

  6. I love it when you can have the windows open, too. Today, the air feels great where I live.

    Don't you hate it when someone wakes up on the wrong side of the bed? But I hate it more when I do!
