Simple Woman's Daybook

If you blog, you can do this, too. C'mon, you can do it! Join in the fun!

Outside my window... it is chilly but the birds are still singing. Seems like something I should pay attention to... their little lives aren't perfect but they sing nonetheless.

I am thinking... about She Speaks... Will be trying for scholarships and am so eager to be there. This will show up on the blog again. : )

I am thankful for... Yesterday. Noah's 13th birthday. So very grateful to be mom to him... he honestly just makes me smile.

From the kitchen...Planning to cook for supper swap tomorrow. Means I have to get everything ready today.

I am wearing... my jammies! It's early here.... not yet 7AM. But this will be a full day and I wanted to post before it gets away from me.

I am creating... Supper swap meals. A good day for my kids. Regular moments that add up to a pretty good day.

I am going... to go bowling with Josiah and Elizabeth's classes today. A school field trip for their gym lesson. Yesterday, I went with Benjamin's class. Friday? Noah's. That is a LOT of bowling. : )

I am reading... The Marriage Project. You will hear more about it here soon.

I am hoping... for the week to go well. For Noah to get a part in the school play. For good weather next week during Spring Break.

I am hearing... birds singing, a plane overhead, the fridge running. Can you tell my kids are still asleep? : )

Around the house... there are remnants of Noah's birthday... boxes from gifts, birthday cards, cake boxed up.

One of my favorite things... family. Mine isn't perfect, but I love them deeply and wouldn't want to be anywhere else, doing anything else right now. Even when it's hard, even when I am tired, even when the teen years scare me a bit, I CHOOSE this.

A few plans for the rest of the week... need to make 8 supper swap meals, do a lot of dropping off or picking up driving for my kids, work on the She Speaks scholarship stuff, chip away at the laundry and go visit my friend Emily and her new sweet baby.

Brave Mom to go bowling so many times in one week - your poor arm!

Have a wonderful week!

I will have a teenager in about 2 weeks, it is a bit scary! I am praying for the best, though!

Have a great week, sounds like a busy one!

I enjoyed your lovely daybook and blog. It's really pretty. I too believe no family is perfect but we love them anyway. That is how God is to us. Have a great week. Doylene
