The Simple Woman’s Daybook for March 5, 2018

For Today… 

Looking out my window … it’s dark out. I has been a long day and I’m glad to be sitting down to my laptop to write a post.

I am thinking … friends who homeschool in very difficult circumstances. My heroes.

I am thankful … for my cuppa tea.

One of my favorite things … Voltron on Netflix when Daddy has an evening meeting. So much smoother.

I am wearing … torn jeans (laundry day) and my orange with white flowers shirt. I like this one! When I walked the dog earlier I wore my new winter coat. It’s bright orange LOL

I am creating … not much time for creating right now but I saw some knit creations downtown on my walk

I am reading Norms and Nobility as soon I I hit Publish. I just finished listening to The Classical Homeschool Podcast on Isocrates … walking the dog and then cleaning the kitchen.

I am hoping … I don’t fall asleep reading.

I am learning … to get up on time in the morning. It’s such a struggle.

In my kitchen … we made a copious amount of waffles. I like the Cook’s Illustrated waffle recipe (although I do half whole wheat flour). I’ll freeze what we didn’t eat tonight for another meal because waffles are no joke, y’all.

In the school room … we had a pretty good Whatchamacallit and a good school day over all. Piano lessons and choir rounded it out.

Post Script … last week I hosted a discussion on Break Weeks for @CharlotteMasonIRL It was a good discussion thinking about assessing our homeschool based on Atmosphere, Discipline, and Life.

Shared Quote … WCF Chapter 5 Section 5: “The most wise, righteous, and gracious God does oftentimes leave, for a season, His own children to manifold temptations, and the corruption of their own hearts, to chastise them for their former sins, or to discover unto them the hidden strength of corruption and deceitfulness of their hearts, that they may be humbled; and, to raise them to a more close and constant dependence for their support upon Himself, and to make them more watchful against all future occasions of sin, and for sundry other just and holy ends.”

A moment from my day … First Friday with my people at Barley Hopsters. Fun.

Closing Notes: It’s such a busy time of year! Entering into Convention Season; Boot Camp ramping up; Pam’s new book release, and many other things.  I heard from a soccer coach tonight, too. Fun all around!

Linking up with The Simple Woman.
