Daybook for Monday 15th September

To get the rest of the daybook entries, don't forget to visit Peggy over at the Simple Woman.

For Today...

Outside my Window
... HOT and humid. The last couple of days have been in the 90s and today is supposed to be that way too!

I am thinking... that next time we plan to be outside on a 90+ degree day, I really should wear sunblock. I hate being sunburned!

I am thankful for... miniature golf! Jacobite's cousin took us to a miniature golf course run by his nephew. The kids had a great time!

From the learning rooms... The new tweaks worked! The plan is looking really good now :) Rebel loves the poetry, M'Lady loves the fine arts :) You can read about those on the learning notes :)

From the kitchen... baked chicken for dinner :)

I am wearing... white skirt and turquoise t-shirt. My hair is drying in a base of the neck ponytail.

I am reading... A Yearbook of Feasts and Seasons, Men of Mathematics. I finished Haystack and will post a review later!

I am hoping... the kids finish with the rabbit SOON!

I am hearing... Music on the radio (we keep the classical station on) and the dryer squeaking. The kids are outside.

Around the house... LOTS of laundry (I have an extra load because I bought a new set of napkins and placemats on sale).

One of my favorite things... is candlelight evening with DH. OK so it wasn't planned (the power went out) BUT I also love love love battery operated DVD players (the mini ones). It meant we finished out show while the power was out ;)

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... I still want to start regular before school walks! I have to add in two extra drawings (I took off two days because my hand was hurting) and I need to get M'Lady some new paints too :)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

Milkweed pods are beginning to burst!


  1. Lovely photo! I'm trying not to be jealous of your hot weather. At the moment I could even live with humid just to get some warmth!

  2. Hi, Spinaretta! I want to hear more about the Yearbook of Feasts and Seasons. Have you talked about it on the blog? (I know, I should just do a blog search.) It sounds interesting. If you haven't done a review or blogged about it, I hope you'll consider it! Have a lovely week!

  3. Kerry- I haven't reviewed it yet, but I plan on doing so :) It's actually rather nice :) My aim is to finish it this week and review it here then :D

  4. Bookworm- I don't mind it in the 80's, but the 90's are pretty hard to deal with!! The humidity has been really horrendous here, 92 degrees felt like 102 degrees! That being said, I am sure many Virginians feel like they'd rather have autumnal weather :)
    Mum says you've been having horrible weather (I am originally from Bedfordshire ;)), so I sympathise. I'll try to share a little heat with you :D

  5. Our weather is unusually cool for Texas..funny that you should be that warm!

  6. I love the photo :) Thanks for sharing your daybook I enjoyed reading it.
