Daybook for 20 April

Simple Woman’s Daybook
for
April 20, 2009



Outside my Window… the sun is setting on a chilly, rainy day.

I am thinking… about a way to get past a writing block on this particular paper on the Trinity.

From the learning rooms… The Harpist is 90% done with her big senior project on the Welsh language and is working on pre-calc. Reedy Girl is working through several Algebra problems, science and doing some reading for English (reading the “original” Beauty and the Beast.) And I am writing a paper on the Trinity!

I am thankful for… my husband, who is home brewing today.

From the kitchen…chicken in the crockpot.

I am wearing… jeans and a sweater – didn’t turn the heat on even though the house is in the 60s.

I am creating… a plan for my flower beds in my head. And maybe I will try tomatoes again…straw bale gardening?? or upside down tomato pots?

I am reading… a whole bunch of theological articles, journals and books, and trying to figure out when to read “real” books.

I am hearing… the dryer buzzing.

Around the house… 3 students, 1 brewer, 3 snoozing cats, 1 basking snake

One of my favorite things… listening to a warbler or wren senerade.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… fencing Monday and Saturday for the girls, deep water aerobics Tuesday and Thursday for me; a paper due Saturday, another one Monday… a concert Thursday (the Harpist’s final concert at high school) and maybe a haircut if I can schedule it. And sometime in the next week, an anniversary dinner (22 years!) with my best friend.

A Picture Thought I am Sharing:
Someone is glad that Reedy Girl is back from band tour…

*** For Today March 16, 2009 ***

Outside my Window… a slowly brightening day. There was fog and a damp chill in the air this morning

I am thinking… about how good that shower felt.

From the learning rooms… Beth has an essay draft due and a Pre-Calc quiz, then pit rehearsal after school. CJ is prepping for band tour; she and buddy Susan will appear here after school.

I am thankful for… a quiet space to learn and study today.

From the kitchen…left-overs for dinner – curried chicken courtesy of the Bearded Brewer.

I am wearing… jeans and a comfy shirt for studying.

I am creating… an outline for my next paper.

I am reading… a whole bunch of theological articles, journals and books.

I am hearing… the cat purring in her basket.

Around the house… there’s plenty to pick up or clean. But not today!

One of my favorite things… the mug of coffee with hazelnut creamer on my desk

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… deep water aerobics Tuesday and Thursday; a road trip to a church in Philly with my co-workers on Wednesday; many late nights for dd#1 since this is dress rehearsal week for their Beauty and the Beast production; dd#2’s oboe lesson sandwiched in between errands, studying, work and home…. I updated the family calendar and it is officially FULL!!!

A Picture Thought I am Sharing:
I am SO glad I don’t live here… (but it was fun to visit!)
