The Simple Woman’s Daybook for February 20, 2017

For Today…

Looking out my window … It’s still completely dark out.

I am thinking …that people shouldn’t be up when it’s dark out.

I am thankful … that we had a successful first 6 weeks and am excited about this break week.

One of my favorite things … the smell of coffee in the morning. Too bad the coffee is in the kitchen and I’m in the loft.

I am wearing … purple pjs and my Outer Banks hooded sweatshirt that no longer zips.

I am creating … a clean basement this week. I hope.

I am reading The Living Page  with some friends. I may start that this morning, too.  Yay for break week!

I am hoping … to get a lot accomplished. Break Week is for AMBITIOUS to do lists.  Oh, and add “take down Christmas decorations” to this list:

I am learning … about joy. Between last week’s morning sermon and last night’s evening sermon, Joy in the Lord has been a theme … and the beautiful ways that peace and rest are wrapped up in that, well, it ties in with }pacify{ beautifully.

In my kitchen … Saturday night dinner: Eye of Round roast, potatoes, and green beans did not disappoint. My mom hosts Sunday dinner after church, I try to make a “fancier” meal on Saturdays. Some weeks I succeed better than others. We had five very happy people on Saturday.

In the school room … my husband built me a new – huge! – whiteboard to finish our school room. I’m very pleased. I’m even more pleased that it cost about $35 and only a couple hours of his time.

Post Script … It is our break week and I always get questions about that. Mystie posted the definitive “what do you do on break week?” post this morning. Mystie’s amazing Art of Homeschooling eCourse for $10 off with the coupon code ‘februrary. It’s good through the end of the month, and the course is worth your time.

Shared Quote … “When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.” Ps 126:1  …. it’s like a dream when God rescues and restores us isn’t it?

A moment from my day … loaning books … That’s a pretty good stack.

Closing Notes: While I’d just as soon not deal with Google Fi service for dead phones (twice! In one week!), they’ve been super helpful and quick to respond.  I’m disappointed with dead phones, but they’ve been amazinghly helpful and friendly.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.

  1. I am so envious of your homeschooling. I schooled all of our children for almost 30 years in the Scottish Highlands and I still miss it.
