Simple Woman's Daybook
For today April 20, 2011
Outside my window...snow, snow and more snow!
I am thinking... of items to pack for our field trip tomorrow.
I am thankful for... the sun that shines at the end of a long gray day.
I am wearing... my painting pants and a fleece pullover. It's April, I should be wearing t-shirts for goodness sake!
In the learning rooms... making a "rubber egg" in Science and doing some reading comprehension exercises. Both boys are doing well in the reading department.
I am remembering... what it was like being the parent of only one child. A friend just welcomed her first baby into the world and it is stirring up memories.
I am going... on a field trip to the zoo and museum tomorrow.
I am reading... Amish grace : how forgiveness transcended tragedy
I am hoping... to persevere and continue to nurture the little seedlings that I started oh so long ago. I'm growing impatient with them in the house and would like to be able to plant them outdoors where they belong.
I am hearing... the water running as one of the children is taking a shower.
On my mind... my dad. Today was his appointment to discuss the possibility of a lung transplant. I'm anxious to know how it went.
Noticing that... I'm kneeling in front of the computer right now. The only reason I noticed was that my knees are killing me! Boy am I getting old.
From the kitchen... cupcakes (because I had a craving for them), spaghetti (because it was easy).
Around the house... children, a noisy washing machine, a chiming clock and bright rays from the setting sun streaming through the windows.
One of my favorite things... cupcakes.
Buds on our serviceberry trees are ready to pop, but received a chilly hello with our recent snow.
My handsome honey clearing the driveway so he can go to work.
