The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ February 8

Good Morning! Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .a rainy day is underway, with thunder rumbling overhead, and a steady rain coming down.
I am thinking. . .about the peace of knowing that God is on His throne and in control of every part of our lives.
From the learning room. . .studies on nests with the youngers; continuing the colonial period with the olders and beginning a study of the moon along with our regular daily subjects. We have really been enjoying our missionary read-aloud on Ida Scudder this year. We read a chapter each Thursday and we all look forward to it. In geography, Paddle to the Sea is finally about to reach the sea, and I believe I’ll hunt down some rainy poems to read for our Monday poetry today.
I am thankful for. . .my home and the blessing of living here.
From the kitchen. . .Ham, wild rice, and green beans with chocolate cake for dessert.
I am wearing. . .navy shirt and blue jeans, and my white sweater to keep warm.
I am creating. . .shopping lists for Valentine goodies later in the week.
I am going. . .to make some time for sewing today ~ the rain makes me want to cozy up on the couch with a good movie and my quilt basket.
I am reading. . .The Excellent Wife and my Bible.
I am hoping. . .to make Valentine sugar cookies this week with the kids.
I am hearing. . .David starting up a Teletubbies video, children gathering school books, rain and thunder.
Around the house. . .Anna and David’s room is freshly painted and reorganized. I just need to hang some shelves on the wall and finish cleaning out the toybox. I have almost finished cleaning out the upstairs hall – still some bookshelves to go through and weed out of.
One of my favorite things. . .Bath and Body Works “Kitchen Spice” room spray ~ heavenly aroma.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .Staying in, except for the regular cheer, basketball, and ice skating lessons. Some shopping next weekend and a Valentine party at our friends’ home.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

A beautiful new jelly roll of fabric strips for quilting in lovely spring yellows, greens, and blues ~ the fabric line is called “Nature’s Notebook”.
