The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ June 22

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .HOT summer weather – should be almost 100 degrees this week.
I am thinking. . .about summer camp plans – camp is now scheduled for the week of July 6th!, and next year’s school plans.
From the learning room. . .I have a new Fourth of July lapbook with red and blue folders ready to start with the kids when the moment presents itself.
I am thankful for. . .my Dad, who is a loving father to me and my Husband, who is a loving father to my children.
From the kitchen. . .dinner tonight will be Mexican Chicken, Tossed Green Salad and Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.
I am wearing. . .white t-shirt and capris.
I am creating. . .a new file system for each week of the year similar to Dawn’s system here.
I am going. . .to be implementing a new discipline system this week as consistently as I can. I hate disciplining, as I would like everything to be happy and pleasant all the time, but I know that it is necessary and things have been a bit out of balance around here lately, which means I’ve let them get away with too many bad attitudes and behaviors, so I’ve come up with a list of consequences for misdeeds ~ now I just need the discipline to stick by it!
I am reading. . .a book my Dad loaned me yesterday called “same kind of different As me” by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. I started it at bedtime last night and had to force myself to put it down after four chapters so that I could get some sleep – am looking forward to getting back to it tonight.
I am hoping. . .for a productive week with projects around the house.
I am hearing. . .computer keys, the dryer dinging at me . . . again, a dog lapping up water, music playing on the stereo, and children talking to each other as they play.
Around the house. . .the dining table is piled up with clean clothes piles and the remains of a busy weekend, Legos scattered around, craft supplies all out of place as they await their new larger cabinet home which is being moved from upstairs when Jeff gets home.
One of my favorite things. . .when my children clean up a room without being asked – a rare moment, but one that I’m being blessed with right now by Michael!
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .organizing projects at home, Keepers club meeting – our topic this month is horses and we will be meeting at a friend’s house for live hands-on ( and seats-on!) learning, dental appointments for two children, painting t-shirts for camp.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

A favorite spot in my kitchen.


Thanks to Peggy at The Simple Woman’s Daybook for this wonderful meme.

Have a lovely evening!
