The Simple Woman's Day Book

FOR TODAY - Monday, January 3, 2011

Outside my window... I see a beautiful blue sky! It is cold now - about 26 degrees. Should be around 46 today which is nice for January.

I am thinking... about all the cleaning that needs to get done. How quickly this small apartment seems to fall apart!

I am thankful for... the warmth in our apartment and the heater isn't even on. A positive aspect of living on the second floor.

From the learning rooms...
Today we begin our second semester of homeschooling only one. I'm hoping to add art and science. But right now my little darling is sound asleep. It's hard to get back on track after Christmas break.

From the kitchen... The plan for this evening is making cheeseburger soup. It's a family favorite!

I am wearing... Blue jeans and a blue striped shirt. Bare feet - it's that warm in here!

I am creating... A to do list for the year. I've gotten a good start on it. You can see it here.

I am going...
to the grocery store later. Must make a list first!

I am reading...
nothing besides the bible. My goal for the year is to read at least five non-fiction books. Haven't gotten started yet.

I am hoping...
to take the rest of the ornaments off the tree. It's been a slow process this year.

I am hearing...
the sound of my washing machine.

Around the house...
John and Gabriel are at work. Hannah and Holly are sound asleep. My living room is a complete wreck with Christmas boxes everywhere. I'm going to finish that right after this blog entry!

One of my favorite things...
is my new Jeopardy game that I got for the Wii. I do not play many video games but this one I enjoy!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Initiating our exercise routine - walking and Wii fit, general cleaning up of clutter and perhaps beginning a new book.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
This is Holly's self-portrait that she took with her new camera - a present from her grandparents.

  1. Thank you for your kind comment on my daybook post. I enjoyed reading your post as well. I am a homeschool beginner so it was encouraging to see a homeschool veteran with children moving on for the Lord. I hope to be back for a visit here :)

  2. Karen,
    Thank you for your recent visit to my blog and the comment. I was a homeschooler as well - my very last graduated just before the summer hit...and my very first "graduate" finished her AA degree this fall. This is my first year of no homeschooling. While part of the "internal" me yells "Freedom!" ala Mel Gibson's Braveheart...there are serious contemplations of having a child in my old age just so I can homeschool again. Weird, right?
