Simple Woman's Daybook


For Today... March, 17, 2015

Outside my window... It's still dark, but I can hear a few birds singing in the tree in front of the house.

I am thinking... I really need to scrub the basement floor. I've been pushing it off for a long time already.

I am thankful... that spring seems to be arriving. Even though I love winter, it is really nice to not have to deal with the dirt our coal furnace creates.

I am wearing... A comfortable maternity top even though I'm not pregnant, and my favorite pair of jeans. They have a dollop of silver nail polish on them, but that just gives them a bit more character.

I am creating... some lapbooks for our homeschool.

I am going... grocery shopping later this week.

I am wondering... if I want to get some duck breast when I go shopping. There's a special occasion coming up and my Orange Duck recipe seems to be begging to be used then.

I am reading... Anna's Crossing by Suzanne Woods Fisher. It's an Amish historical fiction of how they came to America on the ship Charming Nancy. For Amish fiction this book is different, and quite interesting.

I am hoping... we get our tax refund soon. I'm already looking at curricula for our next school year.

I am learning... to not set unrealistic goals for myself.

In my kitchen... I have some cream cheese softening to make a layered pudding later today.

A favorite quote for today... “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”   -Emerson

One of my favorite things... Watching the moon rise.
