My Daybook, Entry #27

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Tuesday, March 30, 2010...

Outside my window... A mix of sunshine, clouds, rain, rainbows, snow... what a strange day! It is 53 degrees, so the snow line is creeping back up the mountain.

I am thinking... of a story to share with Branch. That can be harder than it sounds, you know.

I am thankful for... having all of our basic needs met. We have food, clothes, shelter and love for and from each other. The sun shines, the clouds pour out rain, the plants grow, the cycle continues!

From the learning rooms... we had a nice spring break last week with the rest of our county... it was a nice breather and we are back at it, now, and ready to finish up with 1st and 2nd grade!! Wooo Hoooo!

From the kitchen... my "big meal" plans

Tues: BBQ Chicken, steamed broccoli,
Wed: Manwich Sandwiches, potatoes,
Thurs: Chili!!
Fri: Grilled Salmon (if Pops brings some home from the coast, today!) OR Veggie Stir-Fry
Sat: We'll have to figure this one out with our company here!!
Sun: Smoked Turkey Breast, Mashed Spuds, Corn Casserole, Sweet Potato deliciousness,
Mon: Something EASY like a crockpot roast or grilled something or other, or breakfast! (or, maybe left over Easter dinner!)

I am wearing... A knit top that is a pretty shade of green - but I haven't a clue what to call it to explain it. There is some blue-cast to it but not turquoise... hmmm. It is soft and has a BIG wet drool spot on my shoulder. Someone is DEFINITELY teething these days - there is drool everywhere!

I am creating... a "book" with Branch. More on that some other time...

I am going... to be "company cleaning" this week

I am reading... back to "Child of Mine" by Ellyn Satter

I am hoping... our very special neighbor has a full and speedy recovery. He has been in the hospital for just over a week after having a heart attack. Would you please join me in praying for a FULL and speedy recovery for our beloved neighbor? Thanks!

I am hearing... Bark! Bark! Bark! - someone is ready to come in the house!!

Around the house... In the words of a strange purple dinosaur:
Clean Up, Clean Up, Everybody everywhere,
Clean Up, Clean Up, Everybody do their share!
OR how about the snappy from a strange furry bear who lives in a big and blue house:
Come on everybody, let's clean up the house, let's go!
Come on everybody, let's clean up the house!
Clean up the house! Clean up the house! Everybody clean up the house.
Come on, you too!
Clean up the house. Tidy it up. Tidy it up.
Clean up the house. Tidy it up. Tidy it up.
Everybody clean up the house.
Let's take it upstairs!! Wooooooaaaahhhhh
Clean up the house.
You've got to clean it up. Clean it up.
That's right now clean it up.
Everybody clean up the house.
You tell 'em, Ojo!
Clean up the house. Tidy it up, Tidy it up.
{Giggle Sounds} Tidy it up, Tidy it up.
Everybody clean up the house. Oh, baby, baby!
Everybody clean up the house. Let's clean up the house!!

One of my favorite things... baking spontaneous treats!

A few plans for the rest of the week... school work, house work, library, groceries, POST OFFICE, Grandma & Grandpa are coming from Nebraska on April Fool's Day and staying through for Easter dinner, etc...

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...
