Simple Woman's Daybook - March 23rd


Outside my window...it's dark. Sun has set, kids and hubby are peacefully sleeping. I think the wind has died down a bit after a breezy but nice and sunny day.

I am thinking...that I should be in bed. I have been edgy this evening simply from tiredness and clingy babyness. Lord willing I will sleep better tonight but I should have turned in an hour ago.....slow learner.

I am thankful for...the days end, lol. Food on the table, husband's job, healthy children. There is much to be thankful for in my life.

From the learning rooms...scattered right now. Keeping it going but trying to get better organized. I should have waited to start using a work box/file method until after the term ends.

From the kitchen...had a profitable day. Made 5 double batches of Many Muffins Mix, cleaned the chest freezer, made a batch of Artisan Bread and mostly kept up with the dishes thanks to my hard-working children.

I am wearing...blue pants, blue shirt, shoes on sore feet.

I am creating...a ChorePack system.

I am going...to town tomorrow, maybe. Hopefully it won't rain and we will be able to meet another family at the park to play!

I am reading...various articles, nothing much specific at this time just snatches here and there.

I am hoping...for clear weather tomorrow.

I am hearing...my hubby snoring on the couch. Poor man is waiting up for me.

Around the house...we have hermit crabs from Louisiana thanks to a neighbor boy but I don't think they are going to make. There hasn't been any movement for a looooong time so they are probably dead. Only 1 moved since bringing them home and we simply are not prepared to keep and care for them at this time, but it's been neat for the kids to get a hands on lesson with them since we've been reading about hermit crabs in our Natural History lessons.

One of my favorite things...kisses from my kids. Ali likes to kiss lips for bedtime, Emi isn't much of a kisser, Tom gives sloppy kisses, Wes kisses cheeks, Will gives silly kisses and Sadie is still learning:) So sweet. Must collect more before they're gone.

A few plans for the rest of the week: more cleaning , more organizing. Taxes are at the CPA's so that's a load off and we should get them filed this week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

  1. Hermit crabs are losers. We got some to ease the kids' grief over losing their dog. They never did wake up and move around. We eventually told the kids they died and got rid of them. And they didn't even care.

  2. I think I'm on my 3rd batch of the artisan bread in a week. Admittedly the 3rd batch and hasn't been used yet, just made and the 2nd batch was the brioche dough which we still have some left of, but boy are we getting through it this week. And we don't even use it for sandwiches, still buy sliced bread for that.
