Daybook 1

I forgot my daybook yesterday.  Last week on this post I said I would start it this week.  See, I wasn't kidding when I said I'm usually a little off track.  I may do it on Tuesdays instead of Mondays, anyway. 

Those of you who know me know I hate Mondays.  He's Too Good To Me goes back to work and that's a bummer.  The house is always a mess from the weekend.  I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a Monday.  I really need to work on that.  But, until I've improved my attitude, you would not want to know how I'd answer some of these questions.

Note to self:  Monday attitude adjustment.

So, daybook on Tuesdays.  My site is meant to be upbeat - so Tuesdays it is.  Here is the first one.  Thanks again to Peggy at The Simple Woman's Daybook, here, for this wonderful idea.

Later this week I'm gonna blog about how I lost my bankcard and this kind samaritan who found it and went to all the trouble to - wait, that didn't happen.  Later this week I'm gonna blog about how I lost my bankcard, and . . .  well, you'll see.


Outside my window...
slightly cloudy.  Come out sun, wherever you are.

I am thinking...
how glad I am I cleaned house yesterday.  Didn't want to do it, but so relieved it's done. Thank you, Izzy-B, for all your help.

I am thankful for...
beautiful weather.

From the learning rooms...
We are now offically behind in math.  We will need to do extra in it this week, along with extra reading for our co-op class Friday.

From the kitchen...
He's Too Good To Me has a men's Bible study on Tuesday night and they do potluck.  Because he's not here and it's just us girls we usually eat something he doesn't like.  I'm not sure what it will be yet but it will involve chicken -cause he dislikes chicken dishes.

I am creating...
A slideshow to celebrate Max's third birthday.  Better late than never.

I am going...
Isabela has piano today and I have a homeschooling meeting tonight. Really need to squeeze in the grocery store.

I am reading...
all of the paperwork for Shelby's mission trip and each of Donna's Hondours posts all over again.

I am hoping...
for a good report at the endocrinologist appointment for Delia Thursday.  A safe trip to Atlanta and then Hondorus for Shelby and the others traveling Thursday and Friday. Comfort for Haiti.

I am hearing...
Dodge baaaing in the backyard.

Around the house...
laundry, as usual.  Delia and Shelby both home, neither have classes on Tuesdays.  Nice.

One of my favorite things...
going to Mom and Dad's house to celebrate my children's birthdays.  Thank you, Mom, for another great party Saturday night.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
My oldest has a doctor's appointment Thursday and I will be tagging along this time. Praying for a good A1C. We have a deacon/wife banquet this week along with co-op on Friday. Wow, I don't usually get out this much.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...




Shelby at the wax museum in Gatlinburg.  What was she thinking?

Love it, Marie! I'll be looking forward to this every week ... on Tuesday.

I hope Delia's appt goes well and I'll be praying for Shelby and the group going to Honduras.

I enjoyed your blog. Great picture! I love to go to Gatlinburg. I didn't know about the wax museum. I'll be going again soon and will remember to get a cute picture like yours. Doylene
