My Daybook, Entry #20

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Monday, February 8, 2010...

Outside my window... Cloudy, even a tad bit foggy. 38F

I am thinking... The sun is up! It's a good day! - This is what Bud said nearly every morning when he was two and three years old. Precious. So, we now all say it!!

I am thankful for... books. Books for me, Books for Bud, Books for Branch, Books for Blossom, Books for you, Books, Books, Books!!

From the learning rooms... I am contemplating adding more structure to our days. Structure as in a schedule of when we'll work on Math, when they will get their independent work done, etc.

From the kitchen... I think that I made "enough" yesterday for the game. We will reheat those Manwiches today for lunch. Yum!

I am wearing... yoga type pants, tshirt, soft socks, braid down the back of my neck

I am creating... a pattern for a cutie patootie little something for my ONLY niece. I just realized that we only have ONE! We have four nephews and ONE niece. Of course, those numbers are always up for change at some point! I am also working on a birthday present for my mom!!

I am going... to try to get us out to the library this week.

I am reading... "Child of Mine; Feeding with Love and Good Sense" by Ellyn Satter - it is really good and I always forget how much great information she has to share about feeding and the division of responsibility. She has a website if you are interested: Ellyn Satter Associates

I am hoping... to get that little ditty put together for our niece early this week.

I am hearing... Snoring - Bark. She turns 9 this month. I'll give her a break on the snoring for now.

Around the house... A need to rid our home of more clutter. I am considering doing what Jessica over at Shower of Roses is doing... 40 bags in 40 days. Go check it out!

One of my favorite things... soft baby skin. Who doesn't love that?!?

A few plans for the rest of the week... sew, school, read, make a plan for more decluttering, sleep!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...


Breakfast one day last week.

To read more daybooks or to join in the fun, head over to Peggy's.

  3. Something for ME!?!?! What could it be? Hmmmmmmm! I will be something wonderful. Love, G.

  4. Now I am hungry... I love strawberries and tortillas, not necessarily together, but.... anyway, the pregnant lady is now hungry and it looks like the next one down is about food too. Now I am thinking about those cake pops you made and then just cake. I like cake. Hmmm, must be close to dinner time....

  5. Wow - Erica! I am coming to your house for breakfast.
