Spring 2017 {Simple Woman’s Daybook 32}

Outside my Window …
It is beautiful outside!  Warm, sunny, but windy

I am thinking…
About the mess that is my basement.  The kids and I have a ton of work to do this afternoon!

I am thankful…
that my husband is headed home, the sun is out, and OH MY GOSH the trees are blooming!  Seriously, full bloom.

In the kitchen…
dishes are still in the sink, we haven’t unloaded the dishwasher, and the counters need clearing off.  I have no idea what is for dinner tonight.

I am wearing…
jeans and a shirt

I am creating…
nothing, just haven’t had time to create anything.

I am going…
to Memphis later this week!

I am wondering…
how we are going to fit all our people in my van for a 12 hour trip. *sigh* That Suburban fund can’t grow fast enough!

I am reading…
My The Old Schoolhouse magazine, and overloading my brain online with curriculum ideas for next year!

I am hoping…
this afternoon goes smoothly
I am looking forward to…
Memphis

I am learning…
There are never enough hours in the day.  I have never felt like we had rushed days until recently, and I HATE it.  It isn’t good for me, my kids, or our brains and emotions.  I am ready for a slowdown.

Around the house…
blocks.  books.  pillows.  clothes.

Everywhere.

A favorite quote for today…
Not a quote, but how I feel, surrounded by loads upon loads of laundry. Every. Day.

Last week I resorted to telling my children they had to wear their overalls every time they go outside, leave them in the garage when they come inside, and can only change their shirt once a day.  Every time they go outside, they get dirty, dusty, or muddy. AAAAAH the laundry!

One of my favorite things…
SPRING!

A few plans for the rest of the week:
pack and homeschool

A peek into my day…

Turkeys crossing the road on our way home from my oldest’s well child visit.  oh- she is 63 pounds and in the 98% for height… just like when she was a baby!
