The Simple Woman's Daybook

Peggy hosts this meme each week. Read other Daybooks HERE.

Outside my window...sunny sky, but after last night's (much needed) rain everything is very wet.

I am thinking...of all I have to do this week & trying to organize it in my mind.

I am thankful...that the rain slowed down enough for me to drive home from work safely last night.

From the learning rooms...one last continent to study this week - Africa; math skills practice; getting the school room organized

From the kitchen...I'm thinking something w/ zucchini tonight since I picked one from our garden the other day

I am wearing...a black cotton short-sleeved top, a long denim skirt, & barefeet

I am creating...(continuing to create) a home of peace & simplicity - clean & uncluttered!

I am going...to continue working through the 31 Days to Clean - Having a Martha House the Mary Way. Primary focus for me this week (deviated a bit from the ebook) is to get the school room organized.

I am reading...The Curious Adventures of the Abandoned Toys by Julian Fellowes (reading aloud to the munchkins), Amelia Lost: The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart by Candace Fleming, Catherine of Siena by Sigrid Undset, & The Imitation of Christ.

I am hoping...relief from this heat wave.

I am hearing...the crackle of The Saint's mylar birthday balloon (it's lost its air, but the munchkins love squishing it)

Around the house...I'm still working through 31 Days to Clean - Having a Martha House the Mary Way. I love the reflections & tasks in this ebook.

One of my favorite things...listening to The Saint as he repeats the prayers he is learning

A few plans for the rest of the week...setting up physical therapy for my back, more cleaning & organizing, schoolwork, library, & "Mom Therapy" on Fri.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...This was taken for our church directory when I was about four years old. It's one of my favorites because it's one of the few times I liked my hair as a child. This was one of the photos I put on my parents' anniversary collage.
