Simple Woman's Daybook for August 17th

Outside my window…6:24 and 75 degrees. Humid. The promise of an unpleasantly hot day.

I am thinking…about school beginning next week. I always feel so unprepared, and with a new baby slowing things down, I feel less prepared than ever. I am praying to Our Lady of Good Counsel for assistance!

I am thankful for…the fact that I can teach my kids at home. In my present mood, with all the mothers who are suffering right now (see my Assumption post below), I am feeling especially clingy, and would hate to be separated from my kids each day (I will try to remember that when they drive me insane later on today!).

From the kitchen...Berries with yogurt and bran muffins.

I am creating…I have started a sweater for Una. I don't find much time to knit except in the van, and the sweater is big, so I don't know if it will get done in time for the cold weather, but I am hopeful...

I am reading… just looking at books for the kids right now. No time to read except for scripture in the morning.

I am hoping...that I can get all the things done that I need to before next week! I think Gemma will be spending a lot of time in the Moby-wrap!

I am hearing…kids quietly occupied. Are they feeling alright? Oh, that's it: Dominic isn't up yet, hence the quiet.

A few plans for the rest of the week: pesto (didn't get done last week), a cheesecake for Bret's birthday tomorrow, get the kids to make a special card, lesson plans to finish, a trip to the library...

I am praying...for Bret, that he and I may journey into old age together and see our children's children, and for all those mom's who are dealing with such heartbreak right now. God grant them solace.

A Picture Thought:
Sorry--no new photos again this Monday! But I commend you all to the protection of your Guardian Angels. Have a blessed week!
