THE SIMPLE WOMAN'S DAYBOOK

The Simple Woman's Daybook for December 9th....
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW: Pitch dark, security light shining down on the snow and ice!
FROM THE LEARNING ROOM: Horizons Math workbook, Prince and the Pauper, kleenex box and notebook. Rite-Aid sale flyer. (Our learning room is the kitchen table, kitchen counters and couch).
I AM THANKFUL FOR: I had another melanoma scare, went to the doctors...all is fine. I'm also thankful for these wool socks I have on, good friends, a happy child, instant coffee and the free hot chocolate coupons at McDonalds that were in the Sunday paper.
FROM THE KITCHEN: A half eaten gingerbread cookie, red gloves laying on the counter and a vanilla candle.
I AM WEARING: (remember it's just 6:30 am as I type this)... black wool socks, two thermal underwear shirts-layered, polar fleece sweatshirt, reindeer thermal longjohns, bed head, no makeup. I AM A REAL WORK OF ART.
I AM READING: The Virgin Blue and will start on Victoria Olsteen's book, very soon.
I AM HOPING: We get a lot of good, meaty homeschooling done today! And, the lady I'm selling a book to off of Craigslist shows up tonight, before a tea I am attending.
I AM CREATING: Tons of those recycled characters in the previous post! I just love them and really, really enjoy making them!
I AM HEARING: My fingers clicking away on the keyboard, the frightening hum of this laptop and the clock tick-tocking.
AROUND THE HOUSE: A few craft supplies from Joann Fabrics, my winter coat hanging on the back of the kitchen chair and it's pretty dark still..so I can't see much more.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: Getting comments on this blog...so, c'mon... say hello and let me know you're here and link me to your blog, if you blog.
A FEW PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK: A tea at a local church with friends, honkering down with homeschooling, grocery shopping, maybe a homeschool Christmas swimming party...it depends how social I am feeling, a friend of Tommie's on Thursday afternoon, scouts and I think that's it.
HERE'S A PICTURE THOUGHT I'M SHARING: This is what I have on my desktop for a background... what's on your background? Now, don't be shy...leave a comment! smile-wink-nod.

I love getting comments too. Few people seem to leave them though. I've had you linked from our blog for a while now Ivy. ;-)

Ok, since you asked, I'll leave a comment: I enjoy your spunky blog! My blog (Grumpy doesn't live here) is two days old and has a link to you on it. We just started unschooling and I've gotten some great ideas from you. I also love reading about your thrifting and couponing adventures! Wishing you happy holidays! And glad you're melanoma scare turned out all fine.
Sincerely,
Michelle Cowden

My desktop background is a picture of Catherine Moreland and Henry Tilney, the heroine and hero of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey (2007 movie version).

I have two pair of Smartwool socks that I adore and they are wearing out. I need new ones!

I bet you looked cute in your thermal layers and bed head! lol

You sound very cozy! I'm in layers this morning too, with fleece pants instead of flannel.

HI Ivy (Michele) not sure which it is. I love your blog. I am on the FAIR board. How do you decide what to study? I am loving this Charlotte mason approach that you are using. Did you read the manual? Was it helpful? Thanks,
