Simple Woman's Daybook - April 20

For Today... April 20, 2009

Outside my window... Rain falling on wet pavement, but the grass is far greener than last week! And my two youngest kids walking around in the rain, wearing boots, coats, and hats.

I am thinking... that I need to redouble my efforts with exercise and eating right. Starting with Sisterweekend, I've been limping along. Today, starting again fresh!

From the learning rooms... a late start today, but five days scheduled for lessons this week.

I am thankful for... Cuddle time with my kids.

From the kitchen... Going to make the Easter ham today. Yeah, I know it's not Easter.

I am wearing... my jammies and robe. Oh, and I am wearing bright pink polish on my fingernails and toenails. And a nail jewel! (Did nails with my daughters yesterday.)

I am reading... STILL reading Daniel Deronda by George Eliot for book club. I need to finish listening to A Thousand Splendid Suns (Khaled Hosseini) on audiobook. Reading A Bear Called Paddington to the kids at lunchtime.

I am hoping... that it's rainy and cold tomorrow so I can cancel soccer practice. Oh wait, did I type that for all the world to see? Whoopsie.

I am creating... a boatload of excuses.

I am hearing... The sump pump, people eating cereal, raindrops, a car swishing by on the wet pavement, Bob talking to David and Emily

Around the house... Two vases of daffodils, the new digital converter box for our TV, paperwork for David's camp week, a to-do list

One of my favorite things... Word Twist on facebook.

A few plans for the rest of the week... Lessons and work every day. Soccer games Tues/Thurs/Sat and a practice Tuesday. A meeting Monday night and Book Club on Saturday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
These are the displays (fronts and backs) for the two co-op classes that I taught over the past year. Glass Slipper (Cinderella Stories Around the World) and Written and Illustrated By (in which each child wrote, illustrated, and bound his or her own book.)

Oh, how very impressive is the display! Love, Mom

I am loving this rainy Monday...everything is so much greener...makes me happy!

Great looking co-op table. I had no idea there were so many different Cinderella versions.

I am sure soccer will be cancelled... it's suppose to rain like this all week.

2 vases of daffodils? Nice!

Ammeding eating and exercising...I hear you there, girlfriend. Gotta get off this kid food diet and start eating more veggies! About the most exercise I get is bringing laundry up and down from the basement. Good luck. The co-op displays looked awesome.
