The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY April 5th....

Outside my window... Cooler than it has been, thankfully. 80 plus degree weather is just wrong this time of year for this northerner. It is overcast, looks like rain later today.

I am thinking... I need to keep my thoughts on "the next thing". My head is full of plans of what I would like to accomplish this spring and summer.

I am thankful for... a wonderful Resurrection Sunday yesterday.

From the learning rooms... Subjects are petering out little by little. We are finishing up a Henty book for History over the next couple weeks, and starting one more science unit study, and that will be it for the year. Individual studies are going very well, and one by one, books are being put away as they are completed. I am also thinking about next year's curriculum, and what to do for Benjamin, who starts "high school" next term. ACK!

From the kitchen... I have a ham bone cooking for making split pea soup with ham for supper.

I am wearing... Autumn colored print broomstick skirt, matching t-shirt, and a sweater. For now.

I am creating... Menu and shopping lists for this week.

I am going... to have to get that batting this weekend. No doubt about it.

I am reading... "An Old Fashioned Girl" by Louisa May Alcott, on

I am hoping... I can just concentrate on what needs to be done today, and not get overwhelmed with what may need to be done tomorrow. I am hoping to slow things down a bit.

I am hearing... Not too much! Washer is running, children are off doing chores.

Around the house... Laundry, general picking up, the usual Monday routines.

One of my favorite things... a cool early morning breeze, and hearing the early song of the birds.

A few plans for the rest of the week.... Finishing the 2nd nursing top for my friend and starting in on my spring/summer sewing pile.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
