The Simple Woman’s Daybook for January 9, 2017

For Today… Monday, January 9, 2017

Looking out my window … between the sky and ground, it’s grey and white. And frigid.

I am thinking … that my husband is smarter than I am (no surprise there). He chose to hire movers for the hand-me-down sectional from my parents and that was so smart. They moved it in a third of the time we could have thought about moving it.

I am thankful … he convinced me.

One of my favorite things … my new, red sofa with the comfy corner. Yay!

I am wearing … jeans and a long sleeved amoeba tee shirt in purples, blues, and pinks.

I am creating … I made geography notebooks for the children and me. I put in a blank political map of each continent and a blank physical geography map, too.  The front has a whole earth map.  Now, we can look up and mark locations from our reading. I’m pretty excited about them.

I am reading Kevin DeYoung’s book Crazy Busy. Tweeted this quote last night:

I am hoping … our first day of school portends well for the year.  We had a pretty good day!

I am learning … about how preparation made narrations better. Since I had pre-read the sections, I could discuss and help my kids after their narrations were finished. Now to keep it up!

In my kitchen … sloppy joes with cornbread topping tonight. A family favorite.

In the school room … first day tradition: Self portraits 🙂

Post Script … Jennifer Mackintosh from Wildflowers and Marbles offered these free checklists for weekly planning and review. Both of us were inspired by Celeste Cruz at Joyous Lessons – I posted pictures of my checklists here.

A moment from my day … N-boy finishing his math.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.
