Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY (January 19)...
Outside my window... It is evening, growing pretty dark. There is a mist of moisture beginning to fall, as they are calling for 1-3 inches of snow overnight. (Here, that's a pretty good snowfall!)

I am thinking... of my sweet husband, who is out of town on a mission trip right now. While we're waiting on snow, he's suffering in 90 degree sunshiny days. Poor baby.

I am thankful for... my 2 kids, who are a joy to talk to, to laugh with, and to be around.

From the learning rooms... We had our first day of Spring co-op today. I'm teaching a Needle Crafts class and a class on the Iliad & the Odyssey. It went well, but I'm exhausted!

From the kitchen... I have a pot of Chicken Tortilla Soup simmering on the stove. I got the recipe from Happenings @ Home. It was just the ticket on this cold night!

I am wearing... warm pj's and my red Land's End slippers I got for Christmas.

I am creating... workbooks for Unit 3 of Tapestry of Grace for my kids.

I am going... to stay inside all day tomorrow!

I am reading... nothing right now. I need to find a book to start.

I am hoping... our power won't go out with the snow tonight and tomorrow. With My Man not here, I don't want to have problems to deal with!

I am hearing... Ginger (one of our pups) going to town on her raw-hide bone. She loves those things!

Around the house... there are too many lights on! Usually it's My Man who goes behind the kids to turn off lights they leave on. But with him gone, I need to go turn a few off right quick ;-)

One of my favorite things... is the show "24", and it's on tonight.

A few plans for the rest of the week: We'll be doing our schoolwork in front of the tv tomorrow to watch the inauguration, and we have a practice speech & debate tournament on Saturday that our club is sponsoring.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Here's my favorite video montage of Pride & Prejudice. Enjoy it!

I enjoyed reading your daybook entry for today. I also live "lakeside" and have homeschooled my children for the past 8 years (well, the oldest graduated last year - so it's just a 14 y.o. girl this year). Blessings to you!

Thank you for visiting, Life at the Lake! Look forward to seeing you again.

Mrs. C said... made the tortilla soup. I hope you liked it. I love the flavor the cayenne pepper gives it.
