Simple Woman’s Daybook {5}

Outside my Window …
There are piles and piles of snow from snow drifts.  But every where else it is melted.  After our 50-60 degree January, we are having a snowy February, and expecting more this week.  The kids played in the snow the first day; it was the first time Mister really had fun in the snow (he always tries, but gets too cold).  I had so much fun watching him!

I am thinking…
About so much!  I didn’t cross off anything on my to-do list today.  My planner is currently disassembled and it is making my life chaotic.  I feel like I can’t do anything because it isn’t useable.

I am thankful…
That my ARC hole punch should be here TOMORROW so I can finally get my planner put back together.
I am also thankful for my husband; oh how I miss him when he is gone.

In the kitchen…
the dish washer is loaded, a roasted chicken and veggies are sitting on the stove erady for me to put away for leftovers.

I am wearing…
My glasses; because I am getting wrinkles from squinting.

I am creating…
Goodies to send to my planner buddies.

I am going…
To Omaha later in the week; and possibly Memphis to see family later in the month.

I am wondering…
If the weather will be nice enough for the Omaha Zoo this weekend.

I am reading…
Honey for a Child’s Heart, Flipping back through The Well Trained Mind, and revisiting The Strong Willed Child (for Lexie, who is suddenly arguing like a lawyer again).

I am hoping…
Things go smoothly this weekend, and we are able to get to Omaha, my hole punch gets here tomorrow, because I am lost and confused without my planner, praying that punching my planner goes well and isn’t disastrous, and that Ila feels better tomorrow because she had gas today (which is unusual for her, and may be to blame on the cabbage I ate).

I am looking forward to…
This weekend, the end of the month, and a trip with our big family in May.

I am learning…
How to strengthen my pelvic floor and heal my DR.  It is slow progress, but it is progress.

Around the house…
Things are a wreck- tomorrow is cleaning day!  Woo Hoo!

I am pondering…
Not much …

A favorite quote for today…
Max was jumping on the bed today before we left for violin.  As I was helping Lexie get dressed he fell into the headboard and bumped his cheek (he is going to have a heck of a shiner!).  Lexie says …”Aw, mama.  Bless his little baby heart.  Now tell him all the ways he can get hurt jumping on th bed so he won’t want to do it anymore!”

One of my favorite things…
My children’s smiles.  My silly little Mister bear that can quote the entire AA Milne Winnie the Pooh because we listen to it in the car over. and over. and over again.  My type A tom boy and her new found love of dolls (yay!).  And my sweet Little Miss who just loves to snuggle and watch her crazy siblings.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Oh my…:  clean house, finish our schooling that we slacked off on today, get my planner put back together, decorate and journal in my “new” planner, get goodie boxes for buddies in the mail, get packed for our trip to Omaha, make plans for our trip to Memphis, love on my babies.  =)

A peek into my day…
No picture today.  Just imagine us at the library with friends, gymnastics with more friends, and violin!  (she is learning to play twinkle twinkle!)
