Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window... is a mildy blue spring day; I see a couple of robins flitting about in our yard.
I am thinking... about the joy of finishing my Norwegian Bunad.
I am thankful for... so much!
From the learning rooms... not much planned for today, because both kiddos have appointments with the dentist. They'll be under nitrous oxide so I am going to play it by ear.
From the kitchen... I am hoping to make a traditional Brazilian meal this evening as a culminating activity for our mini-unit on Brazil.
I am wearing...brown capri jeans, a denim sleeveless shirt, black socks and an OSU Beaver pullover.
I am creating... I'm finishing up the vest and hope to also sew the apron for my bunad today.
I am training... I hope to get an easy 3-4 miles in today.
I am going... to the dentist and hopefully the grocers thereafter.
I am reading... nothing just now.
I am hoping... the kiddos feel well enough today so that I can get my sewing done and they can enjoy a playdate.
I am hearing... the sounds of a Harry Potter movie in the other room
Around the house... I need to do some cleaning, like usual. The one area where I consistently slack.
One of my favorite things... a warm cup of coffee.
A few plans for the rest of the week... swimming, lots of schoolwork, and then it's off to coast for the weekend.


  1. You are one of the most organized, classy and giving women I know. What a great mom and family matriarch you are. I am so impressed! I will tell you I was glad to read that I'm not the only one "slacking" on the housecleaning. :-)
    I hope the kids felt better after the dentist.

  2. Just looked at the heat sheets for the master's event- I'm doing the Friday 1650 also. I'm worried about googles and contacts going off the blocks. My first swim meet.

  3. Sweet, Jeff! Heat sheets? Where are those?
