The Simple Woman's Daybook, October 6, 2010

Join the Simple Woman's Daybook here.

Outside my window...~ it is very dark still, we're heading toward the shortest day of the year, and it feels it.

I am thinking... ~about how fortunate I am to be able to just stay home today.

I am thankful for... ~ the happy smile on my husband's face as he walked out the door.

I am wearing... ~pj's, sweatshirt, slippers.

In the learning room... ~how to pull together our IHIP (Independent Home Instruction Plan)

I am remembering... ~ that time for rest and play is as important as getting it all done.

I am going... ~to be home on a delicious, rainy, cool day with my sweet little girl.

I am currently reading... ~regulations of the commissioner of education...more IHIP stuff

I am hoping... ~that this path we've chosen, to home school, will support Helena's ability to learn and thrive.

On my mind... ~the pile on my desk...time to get to it!

Noticing that... ~quiet does me good.

From the kitchen... ~simple, easy food today...just H and I all day and evening, and more time to play that way.

Around the house... ~contained chaos...more organizing and purging needed, but it's time for a break to breath and just enjoy the day.

One of my favorite things ~the flowers on my desk H picked for me.
