The Simple Woman's Daybook



FOR TODAY February 8th....

Outside my window... Some snow in the air, some sunshine... take your pick!

I am thinking... winter is beautiful!

I am thankful for... a very patient husband.

From the learning rooms... Continuing in our lap book studies on Beric the Briton and Ancient Rome, Horses, and hoping that our new read aloud book will get here before we finish the current book!

From the kitchen... Peeking in the cupboards and making up the weekly menu and shopping list.

I am wearing... navy blue corduroy jumper, red turtleneck with little blue flowers, leggings, sweater and slippers.

I am creating... a healthier "me".

I am going... unfortunately to a memorial service for a dear old gentleman in our church who passed away Saturday.

I am reading... John Adams by David McCullough.

I am hoping... to finish the "Just Because" quilt this week.

I am hearing... a general, soft chitter chatter from the children who are on lunch break at the moment.

Around the house... general picking up, a mountain of laundry, organizational tasks for the week, and cleaning out some ashes from the wood stove.

One of my favorite things... A cup of coffee with my Bible reading in the morning.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Finishing the Just Because quilt, and cutting out some slip on blouses for the girls.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Great list, Lisa! You are SOOOO fast with quilts! I guess by actually working on a project a little each day, it gets DONE, huh?! :) ;) What a novel idea! :)

Blessings!

Amy, indeed! Just snatches of time here and there works wonders.
