April 13th Daybook

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

Outside my window... my virburnum flower petals are turning white

I am thinking... that today is the first day of our last 6 weeks of school.

I am thankful for... my hardworking husband.

From the learning rooms... begins the end of another year.  My senior's last year of high school.

From the kitchen... are the sounds of 3 pairs of boys feet, milling, hungry, hopeful for the promised coffee cake.

I am creating... I'm knitting the top cuff of a pair of  boot socks for myself.  

I am going... to garden today at our community plot.

I am reading... Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy.  One of my all-time favorites.

I am hoping... for health for my children.

I am hearing... children begin to argue about what time is legal wake-up time.

Around the house... is music.  Always music- I have 3 teenagers and one musician....

One of my favorite things... Coffee cake- I need to go make it.

A few plans for the rest of the week: My 15 yo's piano scholarship audition is Saturday. I'm nervous but I don't think she is.

Here is my "picture for thought". I planted this 3 years ago.  Lilacs can take a long time to bloom- especially when a late frost almost kills them.  Delicate blossoms aside, this is a valiant Lilac.

I love making coffee cake as well. I use the original Betty Crocker version with the streusel topping. Yum. Well, then I make a little vanilla glaze and drizzle it on top :-)

Must make it soon!

Lovely lilacs! Thanks for sharing your day book, I really enjoyed it today. The end of school?? I wish, we got a super late start this year due to an out of town wedding and will be schooling for most of the summer. But congrats to you!! Hope the piano audition goes well. Have a great week

Your picture is beautiful. I can never grow Spring flowers. The moles eat the bulbs. I love anything sweet. I wish I were more discriminating. I am disciplined and usually just eat a small slice. Your children sound wonderful.We are a musical family. I hope you have a great week. Doylene
