daybook 4-7-15

For Today...
April 7, 2015
Outside my window…
The sun is peeking through the clouds,
and I'm looking at grass that needs to be cut.
I am thinking…
about the fact that it is already April!
How did we get here so quickly?
I am thankful…
for the blessing of friendship. I have been reminded over the last few days
that I am incredibly blessed with wonderful friends.
I am wearing…
blue jeans and one of my favorite shirts
~ black with silver, coral, and white polka dots ~ a coral tank top and
the necklace that Lora gave me for my birthday.
I am creating…
a sample page for a poetry notebook that I have assigned to my literature class … at least, I have purchased the necessary items and will be creating it later this week
I am going…
to take the older kids to their
second drama practice of the day.
I am wondering…
if we are biting off more than we can
chew with two plays at one time.
I am reading…
ummm…….
I am hoping…
that the rest of this week will be more productive – school-wise that is.
I am learning…
the ins and outs of putting on a drama.
In my kitchen…
my wonderful husband cooked pork-chops,
lima beans, green beans and garlic bread for supper tonight … super yummy!
In the homeschool room…
we haven't done much “sit down” school this week.  Tomorrow should be back to routine.
A favorite quote for today…
But let it be the hidden man of the heart,
in that which is not corruptible,
even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great price.”
1 Peter 3:4
A peek into one of my days…


My two birthday cakes .... first an ice cream cake from my sweet husband and kids (after taking me to Cracker Barrel for dinner) and then another surprise this afternoon … 20 drama kids singing happy birthday” and a yummy birthday cake! (Thank you, Marie, even if you did mutilate my cake!!)
One of my favorite things…
visiting with some of our “oldest” friends!

Happy belated birthday! Those cakes look wonderful! We homeschool as well, and my son has been sick with a bad cold all week, we have not done official school, but chugged along doing other things which I count as school. I am feeling a bit burned out right now, so maybe the extra break was good.
