The Simple Woman's Daybook

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs

and thought I would give it a try, makes Monday Morning blogging easy!

FOR TODAY (April 20, 2009)...

Outside My Window...I see the sun FINALLY shining. Maybe this week it will finally stay dry enough to plant our little garden!

I am thinking...that I need to go wake the rest of my children up and start school. But I have enjoyed a rare, relaxed morning and I am not ready for it to end!

I am thankful INCREDIBLE weekend that began with Tigerfan taking a surprise 1/2 day off on Friday and taking ALL the children to guitar practice and giving me 2 1/2 hours of total peace! It ended by going to a Martin's concert last night that was absolutely incredible and worshipful!

From the learning rooms...we are doing projects galore for Dancer's tutorial class (I am not bitter...really!), and beginning to wind things up at home! It is so exciting to finish a book and lower the stress level around here a bit. We are reading aloud "The Borrowers" mainly because I am reliving my own childhood and just trying to get through schooling three with an out of control 15 month old on the loose!

From the kitchen...let's just say we are in DESPERATE need of groceries so mostly from the kitchen there is just a box of Fruit Loops...but they were on sale, don't judge me! I plan on a BIG shopping excursion this evening that will hopefully find us well stocked in natural, healthy foods.

I am wearing...athletic shorts and a T-shirt because I overslept but am still holding out hope that between school, a VBS meeting and grocery shopping, I might actually get my exercise in!

I am creating...chaos (or maybe that is what my children are creating...there is a lot of it around, however!) Seriously, I found a pattern for reuseable grocery bags made from old sheets. If I can manage to find some sewing time...I may give 'em the ole college try!


I am reading...Crazy Love by Francis Chan. It is an AMAZING book that will change the entire way you think about your christian walk. Don't read it if you don't want to be convicted!

I am hoping...that someday I will be an organized woman who actually does have a more simple life.

I am hearing...the sounds of laughter as my 9 year old entertains my 15 month old. It is a BEAUTIFUL sound!

Around the house...I need to vacuum and clean the kitchen but our sheets are fresh and clean!

One of my favorite things...Seeing the sun shining out the window and knowing that spring really is on its way...I hope!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:Grocery shopping, teacher appreciation breakfast at the tutorial, baseball games, kindergarten projects, working on Dancer's scrapbook

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Welcome Spring!!!

I hate those days when you put your exercise gear on and time just keeps slipping away from you to get it done. Hope you managed to fit it in eventually.
