The Simple Woman’s Daybook for April 24, 2017

For Today…

Looking out my window … the sky is crystalline with occasional puffy clouds. The windows are open. The grass is bright spring green. Lovely.

I am thinking … about all the things I learned this weekend. And laundry.

I am thankful … for the Great Homeschool Conventions, family, and friends who make it happen.

One of my favorite things … was sharing what I was learning and from whom on the @charlottemasonirl Instagram Account … I used the “Stories” feature, so they’re gone now, but it was fun.

I am wearing … sweat pants and Buckeye tshirt. We walked the dog and started some laundry.

I am creating … a blog post or three in my head. We’ll see if they make the blog.

I am reading for my current Mother’s Education:

I am hoping … that I incorporate the science and physiology readings as much as I ought to. Those are a struggle for me.

I am learning … oh, so many things.

In my kitchen … I didn’t eat a bunch of my snack-type foods at the convention. My kids aren’t unhappy about this.

In the school room … New books!

Post Script … Here’s my Word Cloud of Big Ideas I took away from the Convention.

Shared Quote … “Read good books; go outside.” Everyone, but everyone, at the Cincinnati Great Homeschool Convention

A moment from my day … we took a hike yesterday afternoon along a new trail.

Closing Notes: M-girl and N-boy had their Central Ohio Organ Guild recital yesterday. They did a great job! So proud of their hard work.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.


  1. Thanks for sharing, Dawn! I really need to start getting my thoughts down too, before they are gone! SO many good things to think about from that convention. I was blessed beyond words in ways that I didn't entirely expect. And I love that word cloud – I'm going to have to check that out!
