The Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window... It is a beautiful fall day.
Cool, crisp and semi sunny,
leaves are changing into a splendid display of colors.

I am thinking...
What could we make to help offset the cost of reenacting?

I am thankful...
For life.

From the learning rooms...
Dissecting bean seeds this week.

In the kitchen...
Water is on for dinner.

I am wearing...
Black t-shirt hoodie, Blue windpants and tennis shoes.

I am creating...
Mental lists of projects to do.
Mittens, purses, lip balm, scarves....
would love to learn how to do socks.....

I am going...
To be more caring?
In Weaver we've been talking about being good stewards with what God has given us.
Which also means that what we have - isn't ours.
And we need to give to others.
So while I'm not sure 'caring' is exactly the right word,
it's what I need to be.
Do I care enough about others to notice their needs?
How can I help?

I am wondering...
How we will survive winter's bills?

I am reading...
Angel of the Outback - its a really good book and I AM reading daily, but it seems to be taking me FOREVER!
Little House in the Big Woods - school
The Wedding Dress - Lit with Sis

I am hoping...
God provides Good Ole Boy with a better job.

I am looking forward to...
Going back to the Amish store!

I am hearing...Bug bawling because she found her outside cat - Copper - that has been AWOL for about 3 months (or more).

Around the house...
I've gone through the sock pile on the dryer and matched many pairs. I've swapped Hunny's summer clothes for winter ones and put anything that won't fit her next year into a box to get rid of. I've been working on packing civil war items into a tote so they are handy and in one place.

I am pondering...
Garfields new desire to constantly escape?
I'd leave him outside, but he attacks our outside cats.
Sis worries that he will hurt her Lucky, 
who is old and declawed.

One of my favorite things...
A snuggly kitty.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Soccer practice, School, Work, Alpaca Farm day (* I hope*), Church, and Soccer games.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...



  1. I think Alpaca Farm Day was last weekend?

  2. When I pull up the flyer it actually lists every weekend in October. I'm not sure why exactly I have this weekend marked on my calendar? Will have to look more....thanks :)
