Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY November 17th...

Outside my window...It is clear and chilly. I had to help Mike move cars around when he left this morning and there was actual ice on my windshield. It's weird though because there wasn't frost anywhere else.

I am thinking...UGH Monday morning! I usually like Mondays, but I'm tired and slow this morning because the weekend was so full...and the week will be too!

I am thankful for...the amazing community of friends that we have.

From the learning rooms...Busy week ahead,Catholic book study/ Saint study today, Nature center field trip Wednesday, I'm not sure how this will affect our actual "curriculum schoolwork", but there is sure to be a lot of learning going on.

From the kitchen...When I'm done here I need to quickly make "pumpkin stuff" for two different events today, I already made brownies last night (if you'll be at either of those events you're in for these yummy treats). As far meals go, I'm not so sure. We do have lots of food in the house, just not much time home to prepare it. (we saved $85 at Publix on Saturday...spending $117...Mike is the KING of grocery shopping!)

I am wearing...jammies, socks and my bathrobe.

I am creating...desserts.

I am going...crazy...wanna come?

I am reading...Bridge to Terabithia...Madi will be MayBelle in a one night only performance of it on Saturday.

I am hoping...the week is not as crazy busy as it is shaping up to be.

I am hearing...from Madi's room--I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas which she will be singing at the big light up event in two weeks. From Jonathan's room--zradio, yet Jonathan is in my room watching TV. Jake's still asleep.

Around the house...we weren't here much this weekend, might not be home much all week.

One of my favorite things...the Christmas Season which is fast approaching and new peppermint chocolate chip milkshakes from Chick-fil-a.

A few plans for the rest of the week: I'm just going to take each day as it comes...they are all going to be very full days. Mike is going to be out of town for a few days which I hate, but so many husbands lately are going (or living) much farther away for much longer periods of time, so I'm not going to complain (not to those Moms anyway!)

Here is picture thought I am sharing...Math with M and Ms!

You, too, can participate in the Simple Woman's daybook by going here.

You and I both had calm weeks last week and crazy weeks this week. I am thankful for the calm from last week and bracing myself for the craziness this week.
I haven't tried the Peppermint Chocolate Chip milkshake but it sounds good!

You can be sad when Mike is away...I understand. It is normal to miss your hubby.

that does sound good!

I don't know how much counting I'd be doing with m&ms!

I am so excited to hear that Maddy will be singing at the Light Up festival. That is one of our favorite things about the season (and about living here in this town).
Book Club was GREAT!
