The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ October 18

Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .the sun is shining on this beautiful Fall morning – a breeze is blowing the trees, which are starting to show a little bit of yellow. Some leaves have started falling onto the driveway in the front yard – one of my favorite parts of Fall; and squirrels are busy scurrying around gathering nuts and acorns.
I am thinking. . .that there are way too many spiders around this year, and wondering why?
From the learning room. . .finishing up our cell study with the olders, and also finishing up “When I Was Young in the Mountains” with the littles – bar graphs, painting, and a snakey art project.
I am thankful for. . .my front porch.
From the kitchen. . .still working on this one!
I am wearing. . .pinkish purple polo shirt and dark blue capris.
I am creating. . .still working on my Christmas quilt (when I have time!) and sewing up the monthly block for my blue and white quilt – pictures coming this week of this quilt.
I am going. . .to be shopping for Reformation and Fall Festival costumes this week.
I am reading. . .mostly just school books and Fall magazines.
I am hoping. . .to get this post written and posted sometime today!
I am hearing. . .children doing schoolwork, waterfall running in the pool outside, someone playing on the keyboard in the living room.
Around the house. . .lots of toys and books on all of the flat surfaces, laundry and dishes to be worked on, windows open to let in the nice weather.
One of my favorite things. . .Patty Melt Cheeseburgers – a cheeseburger with grilled onions served on toast.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .library, ice skating, voice lesson, ballet, cleaning, sewing.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

  1. I love the sound of waterfalls…

    A front porch would be such a blessing … do you have a porch swing? That is a little goal of mine – to have a porch with a swing on it.

  2. Hi Jerri ~

    Yes! I do have a porch swing! It’s a nice place to sit and relax, but I must admit – you’re more likely to find me in my front porch rocker – it gives me a view of the kids whether they’re in the front yard or on the side driveway!
