The Simple Woman's Daybook

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

Outside my window...it's quite windy this evening & it looks like storms are possible tomorrow.

I am thinking...of how well the older three munchkins did today after Mass. The PSR classes put on a presentation to explain the new parts of the Mass coming up later this month. They did quite well.

I am thankful...for relaxing Sunday afternoons, esp. when you can throw a nap into the day!

From the learning rooms...helping The Princess learn to read while The Prophet & The Archangel study the United States; verbs w/ the boys & nouns w/ The Princess

From the kitchen...we had frozen pizza for dinner! Yes, I know...great creativity, isn't it?

I am wearing...light blue cotton PJ top w/ my blue, purple, & white plaid bottoms

I am creating...a menu plan for Thanksgiving, as we are having it here this year

I am going...to start cutting back on my computer time! I spend WAY too much time on here.

I am reading...Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis (read aloud for the munchkins & one of my favorites from the series), Homeschooling with Gentleness by Suzie Andres, Homegrown Faith by Heidi Bratton (my newest review book for The Catholic Company), & I Surrender by my dear friend Judy Dudich.

I am hoping...that our All Saints' Day / Mom Therapy session doesn't get cancelled tomorrow. We've had to cancel numerous times already due to illnesses.

I am hearing...my tubular wind chimes blowing in the wind

Around the house...we are enjoying our fall decorations

One of my favorite things...going to check on The Archangel & The Saint shortly after they've gone to bed & finding them both asleep in The Archangel's bed, w/ The Archangel's arm around The Saint

A few plans for the rest of the week...school, "Mom Therapy" & a belated All Saints' Day party (we've had to cancel the past couple times due to illnesses), cleaning/organizing, spending time w/ family

Here is a picture or two I am sharing...
I was going to make a tree out of construction paper to put on our kitchen so that we could add leaves of thanksgiving on it. That is, I was going to do that until I read what Judy's family makes, a Tree of Thanks. Here is our tree, just put together today w/ fresh branches from outside. Within 15 minutes, we already had all these leaves of thanksgiving on it.
