May 18th Daybook

May 18, 2010 by Rieshy

FOR TODAY as part of The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... is a gray sky and birds doing their nervous pre-rain flittering from quiet tree to quiet tree.  It reminds me of junior high girls getting into position before an event begins.

I am thinking... that my husband works hard.

I am thankful for... coffee.

From the learning rooms... comes the sound of frantic catalog searching for ideas for next year's course of study.  Surely I can find some curriculum that is absolutely free, amazingly fun, and completely self-teaching. In addition I'd like a curriculum to be able to simultaneously clean my bathrooms whilst turning my children into overachieving geniuses.  Know of anything?

From the kitchen... comes the sound and smell of nothing.  With 4 less children to cook for this week I've been barely cooking.  So far no one's complained, especially since I bought hummus dip.

I am creating... I'm not, instead I'm day dreaming and starting too many projects.  

I am going...
to get my van registered before our rabid codes inspector comes back.  7 days out of registration and I get a letter!  This is the second time our registration has expired while our son was in the hospital.  Last time I had to pay $150.  Trying not to be bitter.... not very successfully.

I am reading...

I am hoping... that my children are having fun and being helpful/delightful to their grandparents.

I am hearing... the morning commute begin.

Around the house... is a lot less paper.  I stayed up until 1:00 a.m. filing and tossing.

One of my favorite things... chocolate.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
I plan to continue enjoying being with just my littlest two children.

Here is my "picture for thought" ... 

He never did figure out how I knew he had been playing in my purse.

It's a lot of fun to be with just the two littlest isn't it? I hope you have some fun together. Enjoy looking for a curriculum - I would LOVE to be able to go to the USA to look for some homeschool materials - we have such a limited choice here in SA.

Love your header and your photo in your daybook. Precious! I'd like to know if you find that curriculum, too :) Enjoying my coffee as I read these daybooks.

I absolutely adore boys. I love this post so much that I can hardly stand it.

What curriculum are you reading?
