The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY May 17th...

Outside my window... cloudy, sunny,cloudy, sunny.. you get the idea.

I am thinking... about many things: the new law against homebirthing in NY, a friend who is going thru a very hard time right now, and the schedule for the week.

I am thankful for... a day where I can plant!

From the learning rooms... on break.. finally!

From the kitchen... menu planning, shopping list making, and some tidying up before we head outside.

I am wearing... long denim skirt, t-shirt, and a light sweater.

I am creating... birthday surprises!

I am going... no where this week, but concentrating on trying to get yard work done between rain showers.

I am reading... An Old Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott thru

I am hoping... to have the garden completely done by this weekend, if not sooner.

I am hearing... the littles playing, gentle noises from the kitchen of breakfast dishes, and some quite chit chat going on, oh,and of course, the washer going!

Around the house... Oh, there's always lots to do around here, but we will be outside a lot today. Tomorrow they are saying "rain" for the forecast, so we'll be working inside then.

One of my favorite things... Those moments of clarity when I can say "it is, what it is" and be perfectly content with that.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Other than getting the garden planted, we'll be finishing the mowing, working up the memorial garden and weeding the walkway at church, putting together the new picnic table and sling swing for outside. Whew! Then, during the "inside" times, working like crazy to finish my secret project!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
So, pie or sauce? They both sound good to me!

Law against homebirthing?? Drat!! I was going to ask you about having your mid-wife on back-up if we get to come up late-September... just in case!! ;-)

Sounds like a good rant is coming, no burning AND no home-birthing??
