The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside My Window...The sun is peeking out from behind the clouds. Sun rays are hitting the wall in front of me. We are having summer like weather on this fall day. It is very warm. Around here they call this time "Indian Summer."

I am thinking...about Justus being sick, what I need to do to help him, and about all that needs to be done around the house.

I am thankful for...being able to stay at home with my children this year instead of teaching, so that I can take care of them when they are sick and not have to be concerned with my classes being taken care of.

From the kitchen...the dishwasher needs to be unloaded and reloaded with this morning's breakfast dishes. Breakfast: oatmeal Lunch: left over pizza Dinner: parmesian chicken. I am pajamas still.

I am's creations include: a blog entry for another blog, a grocery list, brownies, piles and piles of folded laundry, Christmas lists for the kids to give to grandparents (It has already been asked for. Yes, I know what they want. They tell me all of the time.), and plans for our church's Ladies' Christmas party.

I am the grocery store, to pick up the girls and Asher from school, and possibly to the doctor with Justus.

I am reading... KJV Bible- I Thessalonians, How to Raise a Gentleman by Kay West, Boys and Girls Who Became Great Missionaries by John Mueller

I am hoping...that I can keep Justus' fever down so that he does not need to go to the doctor

I am hearing...quiet. Justus went back to sleep while sitting on my lap. He really doesn't feel well, he never goes back to sleep two hours after getting up. Around the and laundry.

One of my favorite things... mommy alone time. I rarely get it, but when I do I love it. I don't want Justus to be sick, but I am enjoying the time alone while he sleeps.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Tues- Chloe's piano lessons, Wed- mid-week service at church, Wed thru Fri- the kids are on fall break from school, I may paint the back entrance area (that depends on a few other things), Sat-bus visitation, greet Bro. Hayes who will be coming in to preach our fall revival, Sun- fall revival at church

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

You buy kids toys, but it is the simple things that always make them happy. All of my kids want their turn in the boat/laundry basket.

Cute Picture=) Have a great day. I am not sorting in my cap today--but soon I shall begin sorting--cap or no cap!

Have a great day. I hope Justus feels better. We just got on the mend. I hope they stay well!

I'm in Indiana too! I can't believe we've had 80 degree days in mid-October!

Wishing you a peaceful week!

My kids love to ride in the laundry basket, too! I'll be praying for Justus. Hope he feels better soon!
