Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window...
it's still cold and slightly cloudy.  I'm hoping March comes in like a lion, 'cause I've got outside plans the last weekend of it.

I am thinking...
about the Wonderful Weekend at our church planned for this weekend.  I am praying for God-filled results and blessings on all who attend.  I'm also thinking about the thirty phone calls I have to make.

I am thankful for...
$4 prescription medicine.

From the learning rooms...
We start a new book today, Seabird, by Mr. Holling C. Holling and we will be backtracking on a little bit of math Izzy is struggling with.

From the kitchen...
Shelby and I will be experimenting with a sweet potato chip recipe, also making bread today.  He's Too Good To Me's doctor's appointment yesterday has led us to some discussion on food to help his high blood pressure.  Shelby's home today and we might be looking a few things up.  Supper is still up in the air.

I am creating...
still working on those old photos getting organized.  Izzy has begun a new quilted wall hanging of a flag.  She and I tea-dyed some fabric last night for it.

I am going...
as usual, Tuesdays are piano days.  A trip to the grocery store sometime today.

I am reading...
this I'm missing.  I haven't found any time to read. 

I am hoping...
for that $4 prescription medicine to yield us great results on his blood pressure.  Still working on that forgiveness issue.

I am hearing...
Shelby slicing sweet potatoes in the kitchen.  The dryer. 

Around the house...
there's always so much going on around here with four children.  The age ranges of twenty down to three make for a wide variety of happenings.  Right now it is quiet and surprisingly clean.  Max is still sleeping - that's why.  I love that boy.

One of my favorite things...
hearing Shelby in the kitchen.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Keeper's on Wednesday, we will be decoupaging.  It's messy, your fingers stick together, and Izzy loves it.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing:



I think he's a combination of Spiderman, the Lone Ranger, and his favorite, ScaryMan.

Lovely post! There is just something so infinitely satisfying about composing and reading daybook posts! I hope you have a REALLY good week this week! What is Keepers? It sounds fun!
