The Simple Woman’s Daybook for April 6, 2015

For Today… April 6, 2015

Outside my window… it is a dark and stormy night.
I am thinking… about spring activities for my kiddos.
I am thankful… that soccer was canceled tonight because two of the children are sick and I didn’t want to have to figure out how to take just one while Jason had a meeting.

I am wearing… pajamas
I am creating… a schedule for the homeschool convention! Yippee!
I am going… to send it to the ladies I’m going with.
I am wondering… what things I need to buy this year, if any.  There are a few on my list.
I am reading… Chapter One of Own Your Life for my Thursday post.  Join us? 
I am hoping… that everyone is healthy before I leave on Thursday; including me!

I am learning… more about living in a community of believers.

In my garden… grow many weeds.  I saw some daffodil and tulip shoots, but the forsythia has yet to bloom … and the old wives tale tells me there’ll be three snows following that event.

In my kitchen…  I have been quiet recently and will be quiet still this week.
In the homeschool room… we had two sick kiddos, so piano lessons and a video about the presidents was all we managed today.  I was generally impressed with the video, so that was good.
A favorite quote for today…  “The sun will come out tomorrow …” Here’s hoping.

A peek into one of my days… dressed for Resurrection Sunday.

One of my favorite things… on Easter, we have a Fellowship Pancake Breakfast in place of Sunday School and it is such a fun time.  I look forward to it every year.  It may or may not have anything to do with my not cooking that morning … 
From the board room… When I try a Pinterest idea and it works, I try to pin it to my “Hits!” board

               Follow ladydusk’s board Hits! on Pinterest.    

Post Script
I’m a little behind on my blog reading, but soon I should be posting a lot of links on my twitter feed which you can follow in my sidebar.  I hope next week I’ll have a regular post to share here.


  1. Cute kiddos!!! We also had a pancake fellowship…… our Pastor and his wife makes breakfast for the whole congregation every year. This year it was blueberry pancakes…my hubby was in heaven!! Have a great week!!

    1. Thanks, I like 'em. We had a number of volunteers who made pancakes and waffles and one man brought all of the sausages. It was great fun!

  2. Lovely daybook post . Beautiful children in their matching outfits ! I hope they are all feeling well soon. I will go check out your Pinterest board . I love knowing when something works for a real person ! Have a blessed week ! Lora in GA

    1. Thank you! I am pretty hopeful that tomorrow they'll be feeling more up to par. Hopefully I will too. I made that board for me so I could find favorites, but I like the idea that other real people might utilize it 🙂

  3. I printed the schedule yesterday. Much highlighting and discussion around the dinner table of which things are "can't miss" for us. I'm working a 4 hour shift (11-3) at the registration booths on Saturday so I'll have to miss a few things. I'm guessing that I'll probably be ready to head home after that but what a full few days it's going to be!

    1. The schedule looks great … I'm pleased with my selections 🙂 I don't think I could stand to give up time to work, though. Thank you for doing it!

  4. What a sweet picture of your children…they look so much alike. Thank you for taking part in the daybook!
