Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY April 13, 2009...

Outside my window...it is balmy, overcast and lovely.

I am thinking...end of the year assessments are needing to be done. This will provide the children and me with a plan and closure for this educational year.

I am thankful for...a sweet little zippered pouch that someone blessed me with yesterday!
From the learning rooms...read alouds, silent reading, school work and scrapbooking.

From the kitchen...pilau, if I can get my hands on some datil peppers. My mother in law gave me a plant yesterday and I am so excited. The pilau served yesterday was wonderful and left us wanting more.

I am wearing...jammies.

I am creating...two scrapbooks from the two biggest vacations our family has ever taken. One of Disney for a PopWarner Superbowl trip and New York city for a Carnegie Hall Concert.

I am going...someplace I'm sure, but this week is much less demanding than most, Praise the Lord!

I am reading...nothing non-fiction at the moment. I have several books I could start but other things seem more desirable.

I am hoping...we can move along with a large project we are facing at work.

I am hearing...the clock in the parlor chime.

Around the house...a few small messes need to be picked up and I would like laundry to be completely done for one day (for all 7 of us).

One of my favorite things...A few plans for the rest of the week: I am not sure. I hope this is a week of resting, playing and working together in harmony.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...April showers bring May flowers:)
Please visit Peggy to read other day books, or to create one of your very own. Come on, you know you want to.

Great picture of April showers.

What is pilau?

Enjoyed your daybook. Have a wonderful week.

I am still waiting on trying pilau. Oh and the homemade burrito.
Glad you like your zippy pouch. You may get your wish for a matching bag if I get serious on sewing instead of blogging so much. Wasting my precious time behind the machine.

I enjoyed reading your daybook - we are experiencing April showers too! I wish it were warmer, but it is chilly and damp, so we are enjoying time at home!

Pilau sounds interesting . . . I'll have to do a search on-line to see what it entails.

It was nice to visit your Daybook & blog today. :0)

I LOVE the new picture. I am so bad at keeping up these days will all our little ones home now. I still have a few things to send you too... I'll get it done I promise.

I am trying to simply life a bit more, saying no and bowing out of a few things.
Thanks again for being a sweet friend!
Blessings,
