The Simple Woman's Daybook 9/22

FOR TODAY: September 22, 2008...
Outside My Window...
There are summer toys that we need to start thinking about putting away.
I am thinking...
It feels good to begin our second week of school and a new schedule.
I am thankful for...
Children that love learning and reading as much as I do.
From the kitchen...
Not much today. There are chocolate chip muffins baking in the oven. Because of our different schedule, I'm going to rely on a meat lasagna that I made earlier this month from the freezer for dinner. I'll probably make breadsticks to go along with it.
I am wearing...
A tan skirt and a black t-shirt
I am creating...
A list of apple recipes and a library list.
I am going...
Gracie has her 18 month check-up today. We also need to go to the library either today or tomorrow.
I am reading...
Having A Mary Spirit by Joanna Weaver and At Home In Mitford by Jan Karon for the Happy To Be At Home virtual book club. I need some new library books too.
I am hoping...
Our wait is not too long at the doctor's.
I am hearing...
The older three are making their beds and Gracie is pulling plastic dishes out of the kid's drawer for breakfast.
Around the house...
Today I have laundry catch-up to get to, and some basic weekly cleaning. We also have some fun plans for school work.
One of my favorite things...
Watching all of the fall colors emerge, fall walks in crisp weather, and crunching leaves under our feet.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
We went apple picking yesterday so I have lots of apples to take care of. I'd like to make applesauce, cinnamon apples for the freezer, an apple pie, and some apple dessert fillings for the freezer.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...I'm not sure what my favorite part of this picture is. I guess it's a toss-up between the mismatched shoes, the self-drawn purple marker tattoos on his leg, the swimsuit to play in the "pretend pool", or the tough guy stance and face. Whichever one, I think one thing is clear - do not mess with my boy!

Sometimes I wonder who in the world invented markers; certainly not a mom who had a child decorate everything in sight with one! :)

Thanks for sharing your Daybook! :)

I love the picture!!! I think it's a combination of all of those things you said that make me love it!! Oh yeah...you can tell he's tough!!!! :)

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
