The Simple Woman's Daybook
I'm participating in A Simple Woman's Daybook carnival.
Outside my Window...A new umbrella over a lounge chair for shady observing of backyard shennanigans. It beckons...
Also, there are sunflowers growing under the birdfeeders!
I am thinking of...How quickly summer will pass and how I really must finish my assigned homeschool yearbook pages!
I am thankful for...My Latin Mass community, so many fun families and other friends of all ages. It's a given we'll all be crowded on the outside steps chatting it up after church, so sweet.
From the kitchen...a fresh swept floor, a necessity after snackin' on oreos.
I am creating...To-Do lists and yearbook pages, no more procrastinating, it's on my list to do today!
I am going... to "slow down on the spending". The school books and school room furniture additions are completed. Really hunny....
I am wearing....my long, denim, black skirt and a pretty bright linen tunic with sandals....maybe even some lipstick left over from Church.
I am reading... 8th grade MODG curriculum books (Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis) and other school idea books for next year.
I am hoping....that the weather stays below 90. I really dislike heat and humidity...it keeps me indoors.
I am hearing...my daughter's imaginative play conversations and want to tape it, so cute! I caught this picture of her reading.
Around the house....the lillies by the mailbox are outrageous! I seem to be the only one who likes it that way. The hydrangeas are blooming...wish they were blue. Golf is very literally being played around-the-house as the kids imagine a "course", identifying holes. Bright sunshine is streaming in the windows.
A Favorite thing...seeing things get organized, a fresh start! I did some reorganizing of the schoolroom bookshelves. I think I will have easier access to items once the rest of the books & furniture arrive. I will be set for school and won't have to think about it until September. The school book reading is another story....
Plans for the coming week... I'd like to plan a visit with my Nana and Uncle and with homeschooling friends the kids miss. The laundry room and my hubby's study are scheduled for a streamlining day. On Thursday, the charity truck comes and thankfully the excess goes out!
A Picture to share... well two, of the school room. (click on photo to enlarge)
