March 30th Daybook

FOR TODAY -as part of The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... The Bradford pear trees will be in full bloom by the end of the day.  

I am thinking... of all the things I need to get done that I've been putting off.

I am thankful for... a stocked pantry, and a healthy family that can eat all of said pantry.

From the learning rooms... comes the sound of memorizing the multiplication tables, groaning over term papers, The Hobbit being read aloud, and me clicking around on the computer looking for a better foreign language curriculum.

From the kitchen... I can see the chicken stock that boiled all day yesterday but was forgotten and not refrigerated overnight.  Grrrr.

I am creating...
My afghan is almost finished.  I'm merely weaving in ends and then need to wash and block it.

I am going... to stay home today. It's my favorite place.

I am reading...
I am re-reading For the Children's Sake, by Susan Schaeffer McCauley.

I am hoping... to be self-disciplined today.

I am hearing... birdsong and the hum of my computer.

Around the house... is an uncommon mess.  We were too busy yesterday.

One of my favorite things... Yarn.  I'm dreaming of my next project.

Here are my "pictures for thought"...

Goodness you do have your hands full. Sounds like a house full of busyness and caring for the things that matter rather than the housework - I'm all for that!

WOW, you are a busy lady! I enjoy crocheting too and need to get a long lost project back out and finish it. I "ebb and flow" in my interest and it needs to get "flowing" again. You have inspired me! Easter blessings to you!

Our Bradford pear trees have bloomed out also. Spring is so wonderful. To bad about the chicken stock. I once put chicken in the microwave to thaw and forgot it until a few days later when the smell reminded me.

Have a great day.

Our pear tree bloomed yesterday and is so restful on the eyes. My 10-yr.-old just finished "The Hobbit" last night and is eager to begin "The Fellowship of the Ring". Even though you have a busy house life, they way you wrote about it made it sound so peaceful and cozy.

The Hobbit. That reminds me, we had second breakfast over here today. And it's raining. Very Hobbit-ish.
