I was considering writing a post without pictures, since I don't seem to be taking many lately, and then I was reminded of this nice idea, and so decided to take part for the first time...
From The Simple Woman's Daybook. I wrote my answers quickly, first things to come to my mind...
Outside my window... It is dark, because I am actually writing this "daybook" entry late at night.
I am thinking... About homeschooling and lesson work which we will return to in the morning after our holiday break.
I am thankful... that we are all here together.
In the kitchen... Garbanzo beans soaking. I don't making them as often as other beans because they seem to take so much longer to cook. A large batch will simmer all day in the crock pot tomorrow. An extra jar full will go into the freezer.
I am wearing...Green linen skirt and a green plaid top. Both handmade.
I am creating... an embroidered piece, most likely to become a wall hanging for our home.
I am going... to town on Tuesday. Rarely more than once a week. Sometimes less often.
I am wondering... if my eldest child is asleep yet, or if she is still laying in bed reading.
I am reading... Ancient Mythologies is on the desk in front of me. Our new main lesson that we are beginning tomorrow. Waldorf 5th grade...
I am hoping... for a peaceful week.
I am looking forward to... Snow! Really. It is winter. Please snow.
I am learning... Why is this the first one I am pausing on?
Around the house... Nice and tidy. Tree undecorated and all Christmas ornaments put away. New winter nature table arranged earlier this evening.
I am pondering... the week ahead.
A favorite quote for today... I read a good one earlier, but can't at all remember what it may have been...
One of my favorite things... the sweet little notes my girls write to me, and to suddenly find one, and a smile comes to my face.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I feel like I mentioned them all already. A town day. Homeschool days. Embroidery. And I need to start a new knitting project. (And need to finish another small one started over the holiday.) And can't forget to get started on the girls winter dresses soon. And maybe another nice walk like the one we went on last week.
A peek into my day...
So many times a day I stop to admire this little basket of wool wonderfulness. So many embroidery thoughts filling my mind!
Wishing you all many lovely days this week!
