The Simple Woman's Daybook-6/15/10

For Today, June 15th, 2010

Outside my window~ It had apparently rained last night, because the window is wet, and so is the ground, but the sky leaves no lingering signs of such activity. The sun is shining beautifully in a clear blue sky. I'm sure that means a hot and muggy day for us once again.

I am thinking~ my thinker hasn't started working yet!

From the learning rooms~ We are done! Hooray! However, my oldest son showed us clearly yesterday, that he can't go a whole summer with nothing to do. So, he will be doing Florida State History paces from A.C.E. and several A Beka readers. I'm going to pick out a few stories for him to do book reports on as well. He's excited about it though, because it's different from what he's done this year, and he thinks it will be "fun learning!"

I am going~ to take two of my kids to the doctor. My poor two who are always sick it seems. That's the worse part of being a mom of little one's, is having to watch your dear sweet children suffer and having little you can do to fix it.

I am currently reading~ Disciplines of a Godly Woman & a study on the letters of Paul to the churches.

Looking forward to~ our trip in August, if the Lord allows! Still not sure if it will be Kansas and Colorado, or just Kansas.

From the kitchen~ focusing on keeping it sparkling clean! Since we are on summer break, keeping up with the dishes after each meal, is pretty easy!

I am thankful for~ my husband. I really truly am. For more reasons than I could list here.
I am hoping~ that the doctor can help my son, especially.

I am wearing~ a dark blue jean skirt from CATO Fashions, and haven't decided on the shirt yet...I'm still wearing my pj shirt.

I am praying~ for healing for my son's allergies and cough. Salvation for several family members of friends, so many things. I'm glad I serve a God who is able!

Around the house~ a lot of sorting to get things ready for a garage sale. Lot's of organizing and de-cluttering!

From my picture journal~

I'm already wanting another trip to the Georgia Aquarium!


  1. Very nice post, I would love to go to Colorodo! Nice picture of those little cute penguins. (Blue jean skirt goes well with PJ tops)Good combo :)

  2. Aquarium's are fun!

    I love your "outside my window" description. I can just imagine what it is like.

    I am so happy that God blessed you with a wonderful husband!

    I hope that your sweet kids feel better SOON! :(

  3. It really is hard to see our children sick - I'd rather be miserable and not see them suffer a single sneeze! God must feel the same way about us, otherwise why would Jesus give His life for a bunch of sinners? We are blessed to be mommys, even if the job isn't always easy.

    I'll pray for your trips so you all can go to both Kansas and Colorado if it's the Lord's will. Have a blessed week.

  4. Kris, Thank You for the link. I have not had time to comment or look at the pics. I'll try and do that later today. Are yall going to see family on your vacation (Sorry I forgot).

    Hope your babies are well soon. Mine rarely ever get sick since we homeschool. I love the pic.

    I am so excited over my new bassinet since it's only the 2nd one we have ever bought. My other one was worn out lol. Have a great day. Blessings my friend, Audrey

  5. You would think with my children being homeschooled as well, that they wouldn't get sick often either, but we have A TON of kids at church (who are all homeschooled) and things get passed around. The doctor said the kids can pick it up at the grocery store too. In this case, with these two kids, the doctor thinks it's from their allergies...it makes them succeptable to more viruses and croop.

  6. Colds and allergies in the summer seem especially frustrating! Hope everyone is well soon
