The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ February 1

Happy February! Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .the sun and the clouds are playing tag, and right now the sun is winning.
I am thinking. . .about redecorating the blog – Laura and I are playing with a few possibilities, which might be ready to go up this week – we’ll see.
From the learning room. . .reading, writing, and ‘rithmatic – along with studies on the American colonies, Revolutionary War, the planet Earth, and apple trees.
I am thankful for. . .the beautiful pink flowers sitting on my piano and the sweet husband who brought them home to me the other day.
From the kitchen. . .Chicken and Dumplings for dinner tonight.
I am wearing. . .white t-shirt and blue jeans – yes, again.
I am creating. . .working on the December block of my Be-Attitudes quilt – “Be Joyful”.
I am going. . .to be working on Anna and David’s room all week – cleaning it out and organizing – I made a good start on it yesterday.
I am reading. . .The Excellent Wife.
I am hoping. . .to start participating once again in Thankful Thursday, starting this week.
I am hearing. . .a discussion about the North Pole not really being straight up on top of the world due to the Earth’s tilt, a narration of The Tortoise and the Hare, David blowing his nose, a discussion about hemispheres and seasons (my own voice included in most of these – well, except the nose blowing).
Around the house. . .coloring sheets and markers scattered over the table, laundry to put away, dishes to wash, and a new 80 gallon water heater ready and waiting to be installed later this week!
One of my favorite things. . .my red plaid quilt that I snuggle up in every evening on the couch.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .organizing the littles’ bedroom, Ladies Bible Study, cheerleading and basketball, ice skating, orthodontist apptmt., and sewing.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

Cute little mini rag balls that are for the moment living on my kitchen island in an old butter crock.

    We’ve been scrubbing and decluttering bedrooms, studying the Colonies and Revolutionary War, redecorating our blogs…AND I have a daughter named Laura, too!
    Glad to catch a glimpse of your beautiful family life!
    Peace to you!
