A Simple Woman's Daybook for 3/9/09

FOR TODAY...March 9, 2009

Outside my window...The sun is shining. The sky is blue and cloudless. There is beautiful layer of frost covering our deck. And snow is in the forecast for tomorrow.

I am thinking...about everything that needs to be accomplished in the next couple of weeks, and wondering what surprises are still in store for us (Funny how we like to plan for those surprises!)

I am thankful for...Lily. She turned eleven yesterday.

From the learning rooms...We are in the final stretch of our school year. A couple of the kids have already finished up with some of their books, and so their school days will be getting shorter and shorter, allowing for more time to play outside once spring decides to actually stick around.

From the kitchen...Not sure yet. Maybe soup with homemade breadsticks for supper.

I am wearing...Even though it's nine-twenty, I am still in my pajamas! I keep trying to make it to the shower, but someone always seems to need something!

I am creating...a day of memories for my five kids

I am the doctor this afternoon in order to get my medications refilled. We will go to BSF tonight, and I am looking forward to going.

I am reading...The book of Numbers for BSF, and want to read Ecclesiastes for our Sunday School class. I am also reading a Christian romance novel on my Kindle.

I am hoping...that Lily will not need surgery again, but at this point, things aren't looking too promising

I am hearing...Super Why on the TV, the dog snoring, Lily coughing while she reads a book, pages turning from school books, a package crinkling as Monkey has a snack, and his voice asking me if I "Want one?"

Around the house...shelves filled with books waiting to be read, origami boxes and creations from the kids' time with Sae

One of my favorite always, curling up with my Kindle to read!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Hopefully, getting a good solid week of school in.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...This is what happens when you give a four year old free reign over dressing himself, and when he just LOVES the cowboy shirt Grandma bought him! Doesn't he look proud?

Don't you just love Super Why? I love PBS Kids! We are watching more and more PBS Kids than Disney channel. I never thought that day would come, but I am not thrilled with Disney's line-up anymore. :)

Hooray for school almost being over; we have 9 more weeks here. I can hardly wait to have the full summer with my THREE kids! :)
