Simple Woman Daybook - February 23

For Today... February 23, 2009

Outside my window... Darkness and snow. Isn't that cheery? (It's just past midnight.)

I am thinking... about Howl's Moving Castle. Will be blogging at Mirkwood about it soon.

From the learning rooms... I'm redoubling efforts to make learning more relevant and hands-on, while balancing that with the need to teach four children and accomplish it before 1pm.

I am thankful for... so many things. Do I have to pick just one?

From the kitchen... Um. Clean counters?

I am wearing... TWO long-sleeved grey t-shirts, plaid flannel pants, my fleece robe, fleece socks, and black slippers. Keeping myself warm, doncha know?

I am reading... Deadly Reunion by Florence Case (Love Inspired Suspense - I won this in a blog contest!), Start Your Own Blogging Business, and Miracles by C.S. Lewis. Still in Isaiah in The Message, although I didn't read there last week.

I am hoping... that I can get Forget-Me-Not edited this week.

I am creating... a weekly menu, lesson plans for March, and a novel!

I am hearing... the weather forecast on Channel 12, since I haven't yet turned off the TV from watching the Oscars.

Around the house... Got "new" plates at the thrift store. They are Pfaltzgraff and they have a grapevine design.

One of my favorite things... Nutella!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Lessons Mon-Thurs, Fun Day planned for Friday, editing every afternoon if possible. James has soccer clinic on Tuesday night, Wednesday is Pioneer Club. Bob is going to do some painting at church on Wednesday morning. Friday night, I am going to watch North & South at a friend's house. (Wanna come?) Saturday morning is Angel Food pickup and Saturday night is my BOOK CLUB - Jane Eyre Night! David has a youth event Sat night.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
Suzy dressed up "like in China" - note the chopsticks in her hair and her hands tucked into her sleeves. I apologize for the blurriness. I have a clearer photo, but you can't see the chopsticks.

You have a lovely blog. I also have four children but mine are grown. Suzy is beautiful. God bless, Doylene

Suzy looks adorable! Let me know if you discover the secret to making lessons more hands-on, while still getting it all done by 1pm! LOL. (Even with 2 kids, it seems a difficult task).

So, let's take a peek at those new dishes! How about blogging them?
