The Simple Woman's Daybook: March 29th

For Today... March 29, 2010

Outside my window... Blue, sunny skies! The forecast promises a simply beautiful spring break and Holy Week.

From the kitchen... My poor kitchen has been in a state of disarray. The dishes may be done and the floor clean, but I've become embarrassingly disorganized when it comes to my shopping and meal planning. I really should get it together!

I am wearing... grey yoga pants, black tank, bare feet.

From the Learning Rooms... Uncle L is home this week! That means Little Mister will be learning more about model rocketry and finally launching his new rocket! We'll mix the usual reading and math lessons in along the way, but no formal lessons this week!

I am creating... a clothes line. Hubby and I installed the line using a few trees outside the laundry room. In the midst of clearing leaves and drilling holes into the tree trunks, we discovered my grandma's clothes line laying discarded from years ago around the same trees. Apparently we picked a good spot!

I am praying... my way through Holy Week. For a deeper understanding of the most holy sacrifice, for the strength to make my own tiny sacrifices...

Around the house... We had our house sprayed for wasps last week. It's been too cold and rainy too tell if they're gone. I'm hoping that, as the weather warms this week, we're able to enjoy being outside our house without the company of dozens of stinging critters!

One of my favorite things... dreaming of vacations- even if we decide not to go or know that we'll never. I just love researching all the exotic and magical places in the world.

A few plans for the rest of the week... a soccer game for big sister tonight, an egg hunt later this week, and hopefully a chance to visit with friends that have been swamped with their own lives lately!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
