The Simple Woman's Daybook




For today ... Thursday, May 14, 2015

Outside my window ... my grass and newly planted flowers are getting a nice drink.

I am thinking ... about the gifts I need to buy for Sunday's graduates.

I am thankful ... for a rainy day with nowhere to go and nothing to do, especially since Eli and I both have contracted a cold virus. It's just a good day to rest up.

I am wearing ... black yoga pants, a Missouri Tigers long-sleeved hooded t-shirt, black Fila running shoes.

I am creating ... organized and streamlined closets and dresser drawers. I only have Brynne's left to do, and may work on it today.

I am going ... to have the craziest weekend with Brynne's softball game on Friday night, Kyndal's bachelorette party on Saturday evening, and Dawson's graduation on Sunday.

I am wondering ... who will actually show up to Dawson's graduation on Sunday.

I am reading ... Serena by Ron Rash.

I am hoping ... that Brynne's softball game doesn't get rained out on Friday because it's the only game Rick gets to go to this season.

I am learning ... that staying on top of my housework and not letting there be piles of "stuff" makes life so much easier. Just put it away when you are done with it and then you don't have to worry about it again.

In my garden ... I seriously need to get things planted, especially my tomatoes!

In my kitchen ... was the most amazing crock pot bbq pork roast last night. We shredded it into sandwiches with homemade scalloped potatoes. It was so good! And there are leftovers for bbq cheddar wraps this weekend.

In the homeschool room ... the kids should be reading, but they are on their May break and are just enjoying their time off instead.

A favorite quote for today ...

This is especially a favorite as Dawson graduates from high school this weekend and Kyndal gets married next weekend. Doing this will release them from so much pressure and eventual pain.



A peek into one of my days ...

We enjoyed a field trip to the Missouri State Capitol building last Friday while we were in Jefferson City for the state bowling tournament.





We were even able to incorporate our Prairie Primer
studies into it with a look at the bronze bust of
Laura Ingalls Wilder in the Hall of Famous
Missourians. I loved that the kids inquired of the
tour guide whether Ms. Wilder was in the hall.

One of my favorite things ... is sitting on the porch swing watching the kids all play frisbee across the street in the vacant lot. They do this almost every evening.



From the board room ... I've been on Pinterest looking at ideas for my decorations for Kyndal's bachelorette party this Saturday. I can't share it, though, cause it's a surprise!

Post Script ... I read a lot of great blog posts on MyFitnessPal. This one is about why it's a good idea to track your calories, even if you are not completely accurate. I agree with all of the stated reasons, and it's ultimately why I do it.
