Simple Woman’s Daybook: August 3, 2010

FOR TODAY…Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Outside my window…there’s noise from our upstairs neighbors. They can be a bit loud and heavy footed when coming down the stairs. lol!

I am thankful for…Michael finding employment! He starts tomorrow. Thank you, Lord!

From the kitchen…Simple and quick meals this week! I want to do some baking again, too – if I can find the time.

I am wearing…my usual attire: long skirt, long-sleeved blouse, snood. I am discerning the level of “plain catholic-ness” that Lord is calling me to live. That’s a whole blog post (or series!) in itself, though. 🙂

I am creating…lesson plans and schedules for home-school. We home school year-round, but now that Andrew is kind of in first grade, we are starting a more structured program.

I am reading…Mostly blog posts, home schooling material, and the bible (always the bible!).

I am hoping…Our homeschooling year goes smoothly. Especially the reading. Andrew loves when I read to him, but when it comes to him practicing his letters, he can be quite uncooperative. 😯

I am hearing…the dishwasher. How can only three people make so many dirty dishes!

Around the house…there is clutter. Clutter used to bother me; but, now, I’d rather have a cluttered home and a happy family, than a sparkling house and an unhappy family. 🙂

One of my favorite things…vanilla ice cream! There’s nothing like a scoop (or two or three!) of quality vanilla ice cream. Well, actually, almost any ice cream, really! Ice cream is definitely my downfall. lol!

A few plans for the rest of the week… Nothing exciting. Just our usual routine.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing…(“Somewhere, over the rainbow….”)

  1. How is your planning coming along? I have been trying to work through planning most of our school year. We’ll see if that helps me to feel more organized. 😉 (Either that, or it could be a miserable failure.)

  2. SimpleCatholic says

    It’s going okay. We decided to do the Catholic Heritage Curricula with some supplementation.

    Like you, I’m trying to plan ahead as far as I can so I can be more organized, too. Here’s hoping! lol!
