The Simple Woman’s Daybook for Monday, April 4, 2016

For Today… Square Root Day

Outside my window…. there is snow falling from the sky. In April. Ugh.

I am thinking… about the homeschool convention and all that I learned there.

I am thankful… for time spent with friends and family learning about my vocation.

I am wearing… black sweatpants and Buckeye hoodie. Did I mention it’s snowing?

I am creating… a couple of blog posts in my head … about convention and about Attend!

I am going… to take turns around the house to get to my step goal for the day … if I succeed, that is.

I am wondering… how the rest of the week will go.

I am reading… Awakenng Wonder … or, rather, I’m not which is why it is still showing up here.

I am hoping… my Memoria Press order comes soon. We’re going to need new grammar books sooner rather than later.

I am learning… more and more what it means to embody, seek, and aspire to truth, goodness, and beauty.

In my kitchen… the dishwasher needs to be emptied and refilled. I probably will get some steps doing that.

In my garden… did I mention it’s snowing?

In the homeschool… the children played with Greek Code Cracker and perused Hungry Planet and Material World which I brought home from Cincinnati.

A favorite quote for today…

One of my favorite things… Great Homeschool Convention! I had so much fun this weekend spending time with many of you and learning.

From the board room… I generally throw Easter ideas onto my April board, but since Easter was early this year they won’t be as applicable. There are others ideas, though, too!

Post Script… I almost never recommend things for which to pay here, but one amazing opportunity I had this weekend was because I’ve joined the Read-Aloud Revival Membership site. I don’t get anything for telling you that membership has priviledges. We had a meetup, at which I met several blog readers and enjoyed fellowship with likeminded reader-alouders. I’ve taken amazing classes like Focus and Align which were only for members and very helpful for our homeschool. The forums are picking up steam as we go. I’m glad I joined.

Linking up with The Simple Woman.


  1. Hi! Found your blog through Daybook. Love the dog-walking pic! 🙂 I love how you put up your Pinterest thingy. Could you tell me how you did that? Thanks!

    1. Welcome, so glad to have you join me! If you go to the board you wish to feature, on the upper right hand corner there will be three dots. Press that button and select "Make a Widget." Then copy and paste the code that pops up. Don't mess with it in your blog, when you publish it'll look just right 🙂

      Hope you stick around and learn with us!
