Simple Woman's Daybook for October 5th
Outside my window…7:00 and cloudy. A cool, autumn day.
I am thinking…about this week's chores. This is my free week after 6 weeks of school, and I have a lot on the agenda!
I am thankful for…a delightful Sunday with good friends, in spite of the rain. The kids played together--ten of them, not counting the two babies--for over 5 hours without one little spat. Good food, good company. Next time maybe we can have good weather as well!
From the kitchen...Nary a clue. My focus is obviously on the next six weeks and not on this week. Maybe I'll whip up some muffins after all...
I am creating…Still plugging away on Una's sweater. I hope to finish the second half of the front and get start on the first sleeve this week.
I am reading…some things for school--Geography and stuff for our upcoming science unit on space--or is it dinosaurs? I have votes for both sides!
I am hoping...to get a lot done this week, and that Bret gets a lot done as well.
I am hearing…children playing fairly quietly. Must be because Sebastian and Dominic are still sleeping, hence fewer arguments!
A few plans for the rest of the week: today I have butter make, the 6 week plan to look at and start work on, a closet full of shoes to sort through and winter coats to take out and try on.
I am praying...For my mother, who is in Rome right now; for Marilyn's family, especially her little boy who is dealing with a tummy bug right now; for for my sister and friends Cindy and Elizabeth who are all three expecting (and for their babies, too!); and for a peaceful week.
Picture Thought: I don't recall what her brothers were doing at the time, but Una looks fairly disgusted here!Now visit Peggy for some more Simple Woman's Daybook entries, and have a great week!
