The Simple Woman's Daybook


For Today...Monday April 20, 2009
Outside my window...the sun is shining the children are playing with laughter. The wind is blowing perfect for a laundry day.
I am thinking...of all the things I have gotten down and all the things I still would like to get done. My mind is squirrel caging over many things. One in particular that deals with later today I need to make a decision on what I am going to do.
From the learning rooms.....Monday's are life skills and strings practice. We also do get some reading in. Today would be a nice outside relaxing reading day.
I am thankful for....my husband who says I can stay home. That he knows what I need even when I have no clue. He tries his best to give me all I want and need. I really need to thank him more.
From the kitchen.....manicotti with a salad for dinner. Egg salad sandwich for lunch.
I am wearing...my gypsy skirt. I call it that since it is long and full with a tank top and my good old flip flops.
I am reading...nothing, time is spent in other ways.
I am hoping...my garden grows as beautifully as I dream about. Eventually I hope I will be able to get a annoying aggressive weed out of the one part of my garden.
I am creating....a quilt and apron out of scraps (lot of work, hope it is as good as I picture). I am using the pinwheel quilt idea to make it. I love roses and the pink victorian look so that is the fabrics. We will see how it goes. I love putting on my apron in the morning and proceeding with the day. My favorite apron is wearing out so a replacement is much needed.
I am praying.....for God to guide my husband, to provide work for him. I am pondering something the pastor said yesterday, about worshiping our God. I am one of them and I know God is speaking to me about what He wants of me. Not sure if I am ready to let go, I am afraid if I let go.
Around the house....things are beginning to tidy up so the rest of the week may be spent in school books.
One of my favorite things.....I always come back to my sewing, classroom and laundry combo room my husband built this room for me. It is my do all room. Thank you honey!
A few plans for the rest of the week...not real sure about my week, it changes daily. I need to transplant the collard green that where over planted. I may get the children involved, would be good for them.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you....

Hi Tara! Here's the URL for a muffin tin lunch. I just did a quick search and it came up with this page . . .http://kristencheney.blogspot.com/2008/07/muffin-tin-lunch.html. There's someone who hosts a muffin tin lunch meme but I can't recall where they're located.
