The Simple Woman's Daybook ::: February 2

Outside my Window ... Drizzly and rainy. Supposedly there will be snow later today and tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous. We even broke out a few spring-like dresses for little girls for a change.

I am thinking
... on 1 Peter 1.6-7. I'm adding some scripture memory to my days, joining in on Joanne's Memory Monday. I was actually wanted to memorize v. 8-9 of chapter 1, but when I realized the sentence didn't start there, I had to go back a few verses. :)

I am thankful for
... Sunshine in the midst of a cold day. Lotion for rough and dry hands that wash lots and lots of dishes. A little bit more space in my closet after some much needed purging.

In the learning room
... a little this and that. No themes happening right now. We're just working through our books as we have time and interest. (That will change when kindergarten begins in earnest this fall). Lots and lots of make-believe has been happening here lately, along with some life-skills of sharing and taking turns. Sometimes that is more important.

From the kitchen
... this week's menu:

: Upside Down Pizza, salad
Tuesday: leftovers
Wednesday: Quesadillas (cheese for the girls; chicken and spinach for the adults)
Thursday: Pioneer Woman's Chicken Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread
Friday: pizza night
Saturday: probably more leftovers :) I'm planning two big meals on Monday and Thursday because I'm making dinner for a friend with a new baby (tonight) and we're going to possibly have some company for dinner on Thursday. Either way, there will be PLENTY of leftovers this week.

I am creating
... updating pages in my 365 album. I need to catch up the journaling on a few days, but otherwise, I'm staying on track. Made several cards yesterday and they have actually already been written in and placed in the mailbox. Yea! (Have you written and mailed a note to someone this month? If so, leave a comment on this post celebrating National Handwriting Day for a chance at some notecards). :) Also have a painting project that I'm mulling over, once I get over my fear of painting on the wall ... not my strong suit at all!

I am going
... to take a meal to a friend today who recently had a bouncing baby boy. I am eager to meet the little man.

I am wearing
... black yoga-ish pants and a long sleeved gray and pink t-shirts. I should have socks on - my feet are cold.

I am reading
... Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. Living Simply by Joanne Heim.

I am hoping ... for good news and needed improvement for a freind this week that is in the hospital.

I am hearing
... silence. It is rest time. :)

Around the house
... it looks like something exploded under our dining table so that was dealt with first thing. :) Also, it's laundry day and I try to get 3-4 loads done on Monday. Makes the rest of the week's laundry much easier if I can get a jump start on our stay-at-home-day.

One of my favorite things
... Sharpie pens.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week ...
very little is organized. I have a tiny munchkin that is running a fever today and that may mean we stay close to home. Thankfully, we haven't had any colds or flu this winter and I'd like to keep this little bug confined to the one child. :)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you ...

One of my goals this year has been to diversify my reading. As I've spent the last 17 years homeschooling anywhere from 1-4 kids, I woul...
