The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ February 21

So sorry to be away so long! Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .sunshine and clouds with temps in the upper 60’s today – a beautiful day to feed my spring fever.
I am thinking. . .about and praying for my friend who was diagnosed with cancer this past week.
From the learning room. . .“Miss Rumphius” in Five in a Row for the littles, ancient world history and finishing up the skeletal system with the olders.
I am thankful for. . .God’s sovereignty in our lives and the ability to rest in His care.
From the kitchen. . .Hot Chicken Salad Casserole, green salad, Strawberry Pretzel salad for dinner tonight.
I am wearing. . .pink t-shirt and denim capris.
I am creating. . .lots of half square triangles for a swap at my local quilt shop.
I am going. . .to try to pare things down a lot more around here – still way too much stuff!
I am reading. . .gardening books, school books mostly.
I am hoping. . .to get onion sets planted this weekend.
I am hearing. . .through my open window: many different birds singing, crows cawing, wind chimes, rooster crowing.
Around the house. . .new summer clothes for the girls (boys’ trip is next!), changing the linens on our bed from winter to the lighter spring linens, lots of cleaning out projects, open windows.
One of my favorite things. . .opening all the windows to air out the house after being closed up all winter.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .ballet, Keepers Club meeting, ice skating, cleaning out, sewing, garden prep, and our final basketball/cheerleading game of the season.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

Can you tell I am ready for Spring to arrive?

    I enjoyed stopping by your place!
