A Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Getting Over the Yucks


For Monday, May 18, 2009,

Outside my window...
We discovered, over the weekend, that there a robin is nesting in one of our lilacs and that our groundhog has three adorable little babies.
I am thinking...
That I am so ready for a sick-free house. I've been focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel all weekend. Hopefully we have come to it this morning.
I am thankful for...
Pleasant weather and outdoor furniture. Fresh air is essential to the recovery process. While all were sick at different moments this weekend, we spent a lot of time in the out-of-doors.
From the learning rooms...
We *will* be attempting school today.

From the kitchen...
Light meals.
I am wearing...
Grey knit pants and one of J's grey sweatshirts.

I am creating...
I plan for the front yard. Garden plans, most specifically.

I am going...
Today, hopefully to the library (though possibly alone). I also have to get to the store for groceries and some school supplies.

I am reading...
The latest copies of Above Rubies and NGJ magazines (both excellent issues)
Anne of Windy Poplars
Genesis 12-50
A Christianity Worth Believing
What Is a Family?
Some gardening manual

I am hoping...
For health in my home.

I am hearing...
Kid's who must be feeling much better based on the amount of noise they are currently making.

Around the house...
Lot's of that recovery-type cleaning awaits me -- laundry and disinfecting.
One of my favorite things...
Freeze pops. We stay stocked up all summer. I know it is frozen sugar water, but they take me back. I feel they are essential to a child's summer experience. And, I found, they are great for stomach sick kiddos.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Let's see. . . Cleaning, library, trip to the story. . . T-Ball on Tuesday. . . Dinner with family near Philly for Grandma's 80th birthday on Wednesday. . . T-Ball and a Logos event at CiCi's Pizza on Thursday. . . A City Church ladies night Friday. . . Maybe a day at the park Saturday?. . .
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
No time for pics this morning. I have to go change a diaper. But you could stop by this post of mine for some videos about Logos Academy if you need some visuals.
Stop by Peggy's for more daybooks.
