The Simple Woman’s Daybook ~ January 9, 2012

Good Evening! Here is my Daybook entry for today ~

Outside my window. . .nighttime, cold and wet. It has been raining most of the day, although it is not raining right now.
I am thinking. . .that I need to do my grocery shopping over the weekend from now on – it’s too hard to try to fit it in on Mondays.
From the learning room. . .started back our lessons today. David and I enjoyed reading “The Snowy Day” and Michael and Anna and I read “Katy’s Big Snow” for our Five in a Row studies. Laura is beginning a book on the Civil War, and Tommy and Sarah read about the Zhou Dynasty. All of this along with our regular reading, writing, spelling, math, Bible, and grammar lessons.
I am thankful for. . .Cookie starting to perk up again, and seeming to be on the mend. I will update you all on her in a few days.
From the kitchen. . .dinner tonight was Pigs in a Blanket and chips.
I am wearing. . .navy t-shirt, sweats, and sweater – oh, and my comfy red plaid quilt that I am tucked into on the couch – my nightly winter companion.
I am creating. . .not much right now, although I keep looking longingly at my sewing desk, and wishing for time to get back to my quilts.
I am going. . .to need to take the rest of the Christmas decorations down soon!
I am reading. . .Philippians and school books.
I am hoping. . .the rain won’t last too long and we’ll get the sunshine back.
I am hearing. . .Anna talking, me telling Anna to go to sleep (again), the heater running, a dog barking outdoors.
Around the house. . .books, toys, shoes, Christmas storage boxes, laundry, dishes, children going to bed – ah, the beauty of ordinary days.
One of my favorite things. . .my son Matthew, who is turning 21 years old tomorrow! So proud of him and thankful for him.
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .library, vet, ice skating, basketball, watching old slides from my childhood with my family, and celebrating Mattie’s birthday.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

Look at that beautiful blue and white fabric on the cover of Connecting Threads’ newest catalog!
