The Simple Woman's Day Book

Outside my window... It's dark. It's nighttime and clouds are gathering for a storm.

I am thinking... about how to pay for Gabriel and Hannah's tuition this semester.

I am thankful for... a stocked pantry. We are ready for snow.

From the learning rooms...
We got clarinet practice done today. Getting back on track hasn't happened yet.

From the kitchen... Just made a red velvet cake. Gabriel says it's his favorite. (That's news to me! I've never even made one before.) It's a boxed mix. I hope he likes it. One of these days I'll try it from scratch.

I am wearing... Blue jeans, black shirt and a sweat shirt, socks, sweatshirt and I'm covered up with a blanket.

I am creating... absolutely nothing.

I am going...
to stay home tomorrow!

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. Same as last week. Not making much process here.

I am hoping...
to get into a better routine.

I am hearing...
John talking on the phone. Quiet otherwise.

Around the house...
Hannah is at work. Gabriel has gone to his old drama class to see his teacher and friends. Holly is making a gift for a friend.

One of my favorite things...
my kids being home for Christmas break. Good days!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Probably going to be snowed in tomorrow. Wednesday is Holly's band class and Thursday is her Christmas concert that was postponed last December due to snow.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

This is Holly rock climbing. She really enjoys it. Wish she could do it more.

  1. I am hoping for a nice cozy snow day tomorrow. We just got back from the store getting our supplies for a big pot of soup. The forecasters have not been the best this year so far. I'm still hoping :)

  2. Very neat photography with the climbing wall!

  3. We did not get much snow here...sigh :( I would like to have at least one this winter. Thanks for the anniversary wishes!!

  4. I'm not where I should be on any of my reading commitments, either. Loved the shot of the climbing wall.
