The Simple Woman Day Book~ October 20th, 2008




FOR TODAY October 20th, 2008...
Outside My Window...

There is a slight, and lovely chill in the air this morning. Fritz is outside supposed to be doing his business, but I think he is enjoying the change of weather as well.
I am thinking...

of how I can become more efficient in the use of the time that God has given to me, and wondering how Mrs. Dugger does it so cheerfully with 17 kids!
I am thankful for...

My husband's job that helps provide us food, and shelter
From the kitchen...
Not too sure. I may concoct something from leftover baked chicken, or make Spaghetti

In The Learning Room....
Last week Sweetie learned about leaves. This week we will be working on Apples. Last week Sweetie wrote two stories about leaves, as well as extracted chlorophyll from a leaf, did leaf rubbings. She also learned about the different parts of the leaf, as well as reviewed the names of the different shapes of leaves. We are also reading "The House at Pooh's Corner" together.
I am wearing...
What else? My pajama's. ;-)
I am creating...
A Christmas Planner notebook
I am going...
To the library to return books, and find some books about Apples. And maybe to *T*arget* to pick up some diapers for Tiny Boy, and grab a few other things that I need on my shopping list.
I am reading...
Still working on the fiction book that I am not sure that I like. I like the story line. Very Good. But there are some details in the story that bug me, and I wish the author had done something about that.
I am hoping...
That I can get some exercise in this morning, and get everything done that I need to do without stressing out. ;-)
I am hearing...
My kids. They are either supposed to be cleaning up their toys from yesterday, or "resting". I think they are arguing though. Also the hum of the computer.
Around the house...
My husband is getting ready for work, I will be dressing for exercise and walking around our yard. Then I'll start breakfast for the kids. On Saturday, I totally reorganized the girls room. It looks pretty good, if I do say so myself. ;-)
One of my favorite things...
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. It has been my favorite ice cream since I was three. There really is no other flavor in this world. I can tolerate vanilla. And maybe Butter Pecan. But mint chocolate chip. That's the *only* one that is a favorite!
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
School with Sweetie. Making a goal of exercising at least six days this week. (that way, I will actually do four days) Hopefully make some whole wheat bread. Perhaps banana bread as well. I didn't get to see my new nephew. I don't know when we will be able to do so. :(
Here is picture thought I am sharing...


This was taken a couple weeks ago on a nature walk. We found this amazing tree. Sweetie wanted to climb it, and was thrilled when I gave her permission. Does anyone know what kind it is? I am tempted to plant one in our yard.

Looking at the leaves I am thinking it is a Sweet gum? But I am not sure. Someone *please* tell me! :)

I love the pics of your girls and the tree, but sorry, I don't know what kind it is ...

I'm enjoying this beautiful weather, too! I'm afraid I'm no help when it comes to trees. :I

Have you tried a "Girl Scout Thin Mint Blizzard" at the Dairy Queen. They are Yummo!

Great pictures!

When I talked to Michelle Duggar she was so precious on the phone. She gave me so many pointers and was so helpful. I truly love that family! It was nice seeing them mentioned here.

Blessings! Cassidy
