The Simple Woman's Daybook: April 12th

For Today... April 12, 2010

Outside my window... Blue skies, and the buds of leaves. The tree limbs are so thick, that I imagine by next week, the sky view from this window will be all but blocked by leaves!

From the kitchen... we had a yummy italian concoction I threw together last night. chunks of Red onions, zucchini, red pepper, chicken and garlic sautéed in olive oil and Italian seasoning and tossed with spaghetti noodles... delicious!

I am wearing... green pj pants and a t shirt. My allergies are killing my motivation this morning!

From the Learning Rooms... basic reading, math, and writing this week!

I am creating... vacation plans! We announced the plans to the kids last night. They're all excited about heading to the Rockies!

I am praying... for a fruitful week and inspiration to add love and comfort to our home. I could really use some productivity and motivation!

Around the house... Laundry is hanging on the line with the bumblebees nosing around! I'm starting to get good at ignoring them. A kitchen floor begs to be mopped, and I really need to figure out what's keeping my vacuum cleaner from it's suction potential!

One of my favorite things... Yard Sale-ing! Ashley and I packed the kids into the van and headed out Friday and Saturday mornings last weekend! I forgot how much I liked digging through other people's discarded belongings!

A few plans for the rest of the week... a huge photo session this afternoon, a soccer game for big sister tonight, maybe a play date later this week!

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