The Simple Womans Daybook


Outside my window...
It's dark.

I am thinking...
Why do we have to get up so early? Or at least, why can't it be daybreak when we do?

I am thankful...
For my daughters.

In the kitchen...
Coffee. A few things left to prepare for the freezer. Beans.

I am wearing...
PJs and a blanket. 
Waiting for the shower to be available...

I am creating...
Still working on school planning.
Now, I am prepared for this week, actually mostly prepared for this month, but I'd really like to try and plan out the whole year more or less. I've never done that before.

I am going...
To try and keep us on track. Including start times (seeing as I'd rather be heading back to bed right now!), this year.

I am wondering...
If there is anything I can sell to help out financially.

I am reading...
Mine is the Night - Ch. 31
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - Ch. 7

I am hoping...That we have beautiful weather today, I want to take a nature walk down to the Mill Pond and take pictures of the girls there.

I am looking forward to...
Our next Civil War Event!

I am learning
...More about the Victorian Era. I'm loving learning about women of the Civil War era!

Around the house...
Girls are moving getting ready for school.

I am pondering...

A favorite quote for today...

One of my favorite things...
As naughty as they are, my cats.
Mystic was in visiting early this morning with her deep 'merow' and kneading of the quilt, Rebel stood guard during my shower.....

A few plans for the rest of the week:
School, Trip to University for Einstein, Homeschool group Kickoff, Church.

A peek into my day...
 My camera broke so this is from our last CW event by Sis.
