A Simple Woman's Daybook ~ September 13, 2010
FOR TODAY ~~
Outside my window...the shadows of the trees on the church across the street. The American Flag waving in the wind. The sun shining brightly in a very blue fall sky.
I am thinking...that I need to work on looking directly at my son when he talks to me...even if it's about video games for the hundredth time today. I want to make sure he realizes that he is worth being looked at when he talks. That might help him in choosing a mate someday. He deserves someone who looks at him when he talks.
I am thankful for...being able to homeschool, a husband that works hard, a daughter who is a helper, healthy babies, FALL!
From the learning rooms.....learning about creation, going through Proverbs for Bible. Dealing with prepositions in grammar. Learning about axis lines and the globe lines in Geography. Math, Science and Social Studies. Equivalent, cultivate and introduce are a few of our Spelling words this week.
From the kitchen...Roasting a chicken with apples, celery, garlic and rosemary. It smells wonderful. Making a no-crust apple pie for dessert.
I am wearing...JEANS!! Thankful to be able to cover my imperfections with the cooler weather.
I am creating...I am planning on doing faux stain glass on my back door using tissue paper and modge podge.
I am going...to relax tonight and seriously think about what things on want to cook to stay on track with Weight Watchers.
I am reading...Home Comforts and The Gentle Art of Domesticity.
I am hoping...that I start to get over whatever hormone imbalance I am dealing with so I can stop being scarey mommy.
I am hearing...The sound of my phone going off, my son getting upset because he does not feel he understands his math, my little guy playing in his bedroom, the fan running, the windchimes out on the porch.
Around the house...we are looking forward to fall with the crunch of leaves, the smells of cinnamon and apples, the vibrant colors and bonfires on a cool evening.
One of my favorite things...is taking pictures. I also love to feather my nest for my family. I want them to like being here.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Hoping to get a storm door installed. Having a candle or I should say a Scentsy party. Maybe going out with a friend to deprogram.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing.......A Life Well Spent
