My Daybook, Entry #43

The Simple Woman's Daybook

Tuesday, Sept 28, 2010...

Outside my window... 65, cloudy, foggy, misty. Sounds just fine to me! (Although I planned to use solargraphic paper for a school project today... hope some sun comes out this afternoon!)

I am thinking... that I need to schedule this blog into my day! If it is on the schedule it just might get some attention instead of... "Oh, I really should..."

I am thankful for... my Dyson. 'nuff said, eh?

From the learning rooms... Bud & Branch are doing a Unit Study on The Chronicles of Narnia - "The Magician's Nephew." Blossom is working on her 3 R's (Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic!)

From the kitchen...

Tues: Ground Beef something or other...
Wed: Roast
Thurs: Steaks
Fri: Blossom's favorites... Mac and cheese and Chicken
Sat: More Blossom's favorites... Party bites
Sun: Even More Blossom Favorites... Noodles and peas
Mon: Chili, cornbread & maybe cinnamon rolls

I am wearing... A brown knit skirt, a coral v-neck t-shirt, hair down long and getting in my face.

I am creating... or at least helping to create responsible children... I HOPE!

I am going... to be challenged with patience this weekend. My BIG helper, Branch is leaving for the weekend with Pops and Bud and I will have Blossom and Bump... eeee gads!

I am reading... for Book Club - The Thirteenth Tale by... Diane Setterfield (STILL!!)

I am hoping... that Pops, Bud and Branch have a fun safe trip this weekend!

I am hearing... neighborhood dogs barking. We used to have a quiet neighborhood... now there are dogs barking all day and night it seems. And our dog is basically silent these days.

Around the house... we have a new reward/sticker chart system going. It has been three whole days and so far so good. I chose to be lenient with my expectations as we get into the groove and each week will become more and more strict with the interpretation of the chart until it is "just right."

One of my favorite things... banana bread (I'll be making some later this week with some bananas that are getting a little ripe!)

A few plans for the rest of the week... we will be working hard at completing all of our school work by Thursday afternoon for the big kids. Pops is taking Bud and Branch on a deer hunting trip. So, they will have a fun weekend and learn some gun safety and other hunting things! Blossom, Bump and I will be home together. I need to plan somethings that are fun for her so that she doesn't feel too left out! I need suggestions for fun stuff to either do at home or out and about... easy stuff that a baby can easily tag along with!

A picture thought I am sharing...


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