The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ February 22

Good Morning! Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .gray skies and chilly.
I am thinking. . .how nice it will be to stay home most of the week.
From the learning room. . .continuing on our Olympic lapbooks (olders), and still studying nests and animal homes (youngers).
I am thankful for. . .the heater, which is being repaired as I write, and just in time for the temperature drop today. I am also thankful that so far noone has come down with Anna’s stomach virus from last week.
From the kitchen. . .I will be cooking lots of chicken today to cube and freeze. I’ll use some of it to make dinner tonight ~ but I haven’t decided yet which casserole to make.
I am wearing. . .long sleeve white t-shirt, jeans. and a navy sweater to keep warm.
I am creating. . .I’m so excited ~ I will begin sewing my blocks together this week for my Be-Attitudes quilt, and then be ready to start on the borders! Cindy, I haven’t forgotten your question about a suggestion for a quilting book – check back soon!
I am going. . .to spend more time in my Bible this week – I have let all of the busyness of life crowd out my time with Him, and I need the peace and perspective that He gives me when I stay in His Word.
I am reading. . .“The Pioneer Woman Cooks” – have loved the recipes on her blog for awhile, and now she has a printed cookbook that is wonderful!
I am hoping. . .that the house warms up really fast.
I am hearing. . .Michael chatting with me, the heater just came on as they are testing it (please work. . .please work!), kids gathering schoolbooks.
Around the house. . .still lots of projects to get to – maybe this week? Maybe I should move this to I am hoping. . .
One of my favorite things. . .my monthly stamp club meeting – food, fun, and friends.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .basketball awards night, ice skating, staying home and getting things done! (I can dream, can’t I?)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

  4. Could you please tell what a Be Attitudes Quilt is, I have not heard of it here in Australia. Thanks, hopes heater works.

  5. Hi Lynn ~ It is basically a quilt designed by Nancy Halvorsen with 12 different “Be-Attitudes” – for instance: Be Patient, Be Joyful, Be Respectful, etc. Check back – I will post pictures as soon as I can.

    Thanks for asking!
