The Simple Woman’s Daybook

Outside my window……Sun is bright but beginning it’s evening decent.

I am thankful….for a husband that works hard for us. Most of all comes to our rescue even when we are hour and 1/2 away.

I am thinking…about staying calm, not worrying about everything. I was sick for 3 weeks due to stress it was my worst attack yet.

I am wearing…purple sundress, yes we are still near 90’s here.

I am remembering….the kindness Emily and her mom showed us yesterday. As we waited for hubby to drive all the way over to fix a issue with my truck, luckily it was nothing serious.

I am creating….a rag quilt for pooh bear. It is almost done.

I am praying…for our house, not sure what is happening. We never ever get a straight answer from the mortgage servicing company.

From the kitchen…have many meals plan just no order to them

I am hoping… hubby we treat me to dinner, just the two of us for my birthday.

From the learning rooms….lots of music playing, math books and we did some LLATL

I am hearing…..cake boss on the tv. Missy losing it again over her wasp sting from last night. Poor baby’s hand and wrist is all swollen. All 4 of my boys are on lawn mowers and go carts.

Around the house….everyday living is showing in many rooms. Dishes are finally done after a couple of day since we were having trouble with the drains. Not pretty picture, dirty dishes with a family of six.

A few plans for the rest of the week…orchestra on Monday, Choir Tuesday, I just found out no orchestra this Wednesday that means 3 solid days of school ;) Then Saturday orchestra. A meeting on Sunday right after church.

Here is a picture I would like to share with you……evening drive along the beach

Thank you for stopping by and being part of our family this week

Blessing to your family.

Taking time today…

Today I took time for me and some things I wanted to do but never had time for.

For along time I have wanted to upload some of my cd’s to I tunes so I could have them on my I phone. Especially now that my I phone or Pandora is all I ever listen to in the truck. (and I am spending a lot of time in the truck again).

Well on the computer today actually doing things(more then poking in on people with blogs and facebook) I decided to quickly up date what I have been doing.

First lots of home schooling. We are doing great in math, just about caught up with LLATL. Doing more reading this year then in the past. I am feeling very good over our progress. Hopefully this year will stay calmer around the holidays. So that we are not taking as much time away from school work. The nice thing is all four of my children are working so much more independently.

Here is a picture of that special quilt (thank you honey for my wonderful sewing machine).  I have it all wrapped up to send to my mother. With special message stitched in the binding and each pink ribbon.


I am now finally working on a camouflage rag quilt for pooh bear. He has been asking for a long time. Everyone has one from mom but him, it is his turn. This is the first rag quilt so far seems to be very easy. Can’t wait until it is done and we wash it. All those cuts will fluff and they say it gets softer each time it is washed. Perfect for this winter for him.


also spent time playing with the embroidery part of the machine. My poppy loves butterflies and purple. This was the day we had company also. Aunt Arla and our four cousins came all the way up to visit us, and share in the joy of  my new machine.


The children and I did take a break and meet daddy one evening to have fun swimming.


We have had a great start to music this year. All four are very excited to be back in their orchestra’s. Makes a mothers heart swell with joy listening to them practice every evening as I cook dinner.


Hopefully I will be back this week to do my simple woman’s daybook. According to hubby this is going to be a very full week and he is needing me even more then normal. This is answered prayer, work for hubby. Thank Jesus!

Couple more thing to check off that to do list for myself.

Blessing to your week friends,
