The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY April 26th....

Outside my window...Rain and cool temperatures.

I am thinking... today is a good day to curl up with a good book, cup of tea and a comfy quilt. My reality: errands and laundry. I am also thinking that we are actually going to have to start the woodstove as the house is feeling damp and chilly, and the next few days look like more of the same.

I am thankful for... My Maya wrap sling and how handy it came in this morning in running a ton of errands!

From the learning rooms... Winding down our 4th quarter for this term with book reports and tying up some loose ends.

From the kitchen... The twins are making some chocolate chip cookies.

I am wearing... black tweed skirt, white t-shirt, and a slate blue LLBean pullover sweater.

I am creating... birthday surprises. Shhhh!

I am have gone... to the dentist (Benjamin had an appointment), to Walmarts, and to Aldi's for the week's shopping. Can I have a gold star? I AM going to Fibers of Faith tonight. Yay!

I am reading... "An Old Fashioned Girl" by Louisa May Alcott, and "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.

I am hoping... to do some hand quilting this afternoon (Thanks Mel for making me feel guilty about that other quilt I have been neglecting! LOL)

I am hearing... the pitter patter of rain.

Around the house... Laundry

One of my favorite things... watching Isaac study over something or someone new in his life.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Today was the highlight as far as going out and about. The rest of this week we will be doing yard work as weather allows, and sewing, and the usual string of chores, school work, and play time activities.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
