Simple Woman's Daybook - March 23

For Today... March 23, 2009

Outside my window... Sunshine, dead grass, bare trees, not a soul in sight.

I am thinking... about buying the movie Bolt. We adored it in the theater!

From the learning rooms... I bought James a new Explode the Code book at the book fair.

I am thankful for... a husband who prays and reads God's Word.

From the kitchen... Going to make pork chops and brown rice for dinner. I am thinking about making chocolate chip cookies, or maybe Emily will want to!

I am wearing... Jeans, black long-sleeved shirt, green flannel shirt buttoned over it and a long-sleeved pink sweatshirt over THAT. Hair up in a clip.

I am reading... Just finished Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult and just started reading Daniel Deronda by George Eliot for book club. I have quite a few other choices including one of the Horatio Hornblower novels. Also perusing a book on 100 great vacations around the world. I just read the last chapter of Soup and Me by Robert Newton Peck to the kids at lunchtime.

I am hoping... that my friend Marla's recovery goes smoothly and quickly. (She had a pacemaker put in today.)

I am creating... proposals to submit on elance.com.

I am hearing... David answering his history questions out loud as I ask them.

Around the house... David has removed all the floorboards on the back porch and Bob and David will be rebuilding it. I am trying to get up enough courage to buy some paint to repaint the dining room a pale yellow. Every room of the house needs to be repainted, as well as the EXTERIOR of the house needing another coat of "Melted Butter" as soon as it gets warm enough.

One of my favorite things... Quaker Quakes Cheddar flavor (I actually like the Meijer brand the best.) My replacement for chips. Crunchy, salty, tasty. Yum.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Lessons Mon-Thurs, querying and editing Mon-Thurs afternoon and whenever else I can find time, I have a homeschool meeting Tuesday night, Wednesday is Pioneer Club, Thursday I have a soccer coaches meeting, Friday is Fun Day and I am heading out for Sister Weekend!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

I have some Explode the Code book copies if you'd like to borrow them and make copies yourself. I think I have up to Book 5? or maybe 6.
