The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... January 25

Outside my window... just the first hint of light as the wind swirls and blows the light bit of rain all around.

I am thinking... it looks like a good day to stay inside, but I have places to go.

I am thankful for... a husband who takes good care of me when I am not feeling well.

I am wearing... my PJ's. It's still early, I haven't even had breakfast yet.

I am remembering... how I heard Anna belting out a favorite tune from High School Musical as she was waking. I love when they wake up full of joy and song.

I am going... to our homeschool co-op. I teach several children piano lessons and I also teach a music theory class to a group of middle and high school kids. I haven't taught lessons since we left Georgia and I am enjoying it very much.

I am currently reading... Crime and Punishment along with the girls, and Introduction to the Devout Life on my own.

I am hoping... for some good news tomorrow morning.

On my mind... scholarship applications for Sophie. If she wants to go to Franciscan University, we will need help!

Noticing that...I love the sound of the rain hitting the windowpanes during night, but that love fades when I have to go out and brave the elements.

Pondering these words... "Devotion is compatible with every vocation and profession" -from Introduction to the Devout Life

From the kitchen... my favorite banana bread for breakfast this morning.

Around the house... the sounds of the little ones getting dressed by themselves.

One of my favorite things~ hugs from my kids.

From my picture journal...

  1. love your reflections. C & P one of my favorite books, and my son's too--and Dostoevsky had a seizure disorder, which you probably already know. Bad weather is a great backdrop for a cozy day indoors--so maybe you can postpone urgent matters till tomorrow...

  2. I have truly enjoyed reading your post, and you have such a lovely blog.

    I love your picture you've included. It is so peaceful.

    I'll be praying, for your daughter's desire to attend Franciscan University to become a reality, and for their Catholic high school experience to be wonderful.
