Simple Woman's Daybook
FOR TODAY, March 19, 2012
Outside my window...the warmth this past week has all the trees and bushes budding early. I'm literally praying that my lilacs don't freeze!
I am thinking...about which project to tackle next. About how to balance my time between four little people who need me, and one big person who hasn't seen much of me lately! About food and life and how they relate to each other.
I am thankful for...our new home. We are starting to experience peace that we had hoped for. So fun to work on our own home!
From the learning rooms...working through "Teach Your Child to Read" with Hannah. She is finally highly motivated to learn to read, and for that I am grateful. Once we get a ways in, I will probably start with Audrey as well, since she's been wanting to learn for over a year by now. Also, Tessa is showing great promise for potty training practically overnight. Now, to train mommy and daddy on having a potty trainer again... ;)
From the kitchen...still going very simple in this area since baby and moving. Tonight is a naturally raised pork shoulder in the crockpot, and leftover steamed veggies.
I am wearing...cobalt blue skirt, black tee
I am creating...a new home. Again. For hopefully the last time in a looooong time.
I am going...very few places right now, though I do finally have a vehicle again, after over a month without one. I prefer to stay home and follow our routine right now. It's less stressful, and less stress is the goal for the moment!
I am reading...Revelation. Awe-inspiring as always, both weird and beautiful.
I am hoping...Josie will figure out how to go to bed sometime soon. Once she's asleep, we're good.
I am hearing...Josie's baby noises, Dora on the computer, the humidifier.
Around the house...Nick and his dad got a door installed on our bedroom this weekend, thank the Lord. Nick put up some curtains on the front window for me-they're too short, but hey, they're better than the filthy vertical blinds. Also, we have moved SO much trash SO many times... Garage sale coming!
One of my favorite things...Josie's smiles
A few plans for the rest of the week: Getting a (free!!!!) chicken coop tonight, lots more unpacking and decorating, tea with the amazing Sara, many hours of baby rocking...
A picture thought I am sharing...
