My Daybook, Entry #33

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Tuesday, May 18, 2010...

Outside my window... It was beautiful today, but it is growing dark now and clouds have rolled in.

I am thinking... I have been awful busy trying to keep up around here and in the process, have forgotten this blog on the side table. YIKES! Back to it, I promise!!

I am thankful for... the business and hustle in my home due to having four very happy and healthy children running amok.

From the learning rooms... Our new math, "Teaching Textbooks," has arrived!! We will start up with that beginning in our summer session!!

From the kitchen... my "big meal" plans
Tues: Black Pepper Beef Stir-fry
Wed: Quesadillas
Thurs: somethin' girlie... the boys will be gone for Blue Knights
Fri: any ideas???
Sat: Breakfast
Sun: On the grill (I'd like to do kabobs! - for reals this week)
Mon: Burger
I am wearing... Black capri length pants with a bright pink top & bare feet

I am creating... not much, but I am GOING to!

I am going... to CREATE a plan for a schedule - Pops says that a schedule for the kids will help them stay on task better. I am crossing my fingers.

I am reading... I read the Sunday comics today. Does that count??

I am hoping... to get more sleep tonight than last night!

I am hearing... Tree Frogs croaking. The neighbor's noisy diesel pick-up truck revving its engine. Pops and the treekids having a before bed chat.

Around the house... I think I need to try bribes for tidiness.

One of my favorite things... Empty laundry baskets.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Baseball games tonight, Bud's Blue Knights club meeting, library time.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...


Bud has ALWAYS been full of hot air!!

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