The Simple Woman’s Daybook for February 19, 2018

For Today…

Looking out my window … the rain is falling hard. We’ve had some lightning and thunder. The neighbors have a moving truck as they pack to move to Texas.

I am thinking … it would be a miserable day to move.

I am thankful … that it’s break week and we have a quiet morning.

One of my favorite things … is a schedule for a rest. I’ve been reading Kevin DeYoung’s Crazy Busy off and on for a while and last night I read his chapter on Sabbath and rest and it was a great reminder of why we take this time. That and the dominos currently overtaking my foyer.

I am wearing … still in pajamas, but I need to go change to exercise gear because today’s the first day of The Balanced Life 10 Day challenge.

I am creating … AmblesideOnline Year 7 plans. Or that’s today’s plan 🙂

I am reading … Persuasion again. Wonderful.

I am hoping … to get a lot done this week. My schedule might be overfilled.

I am learning … what my children choose for their free time. One of the purposes of break week is to assess the affections being built in all of us.

In my kitchen … oatmeal with trail mix. Happy breakfast.

In the school room … cleanup and break week. The kids have already done some Scratch programming this morning.

Post Script … it’s time for another Homeschool Consistency Boot Camp Challenge. If you struggle with this area, Pam and I would love to help you out.

Shared Quote … I read Psalm 36 in my devotions this morning and it always stands out:

Your steadfast loveO LORDextends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the montains of God;
your judgments are like the great deep;
man and beast you saveO LORD.

A moment from my day … N-boy made French Toast on Saturday.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.
