Daybook for Monday 10th November

To get the rest of the daybook entries, don't forget to visit Peggy over at the Simple Woman (she has a new DAYBOOK blog ;))

For Today...

Outside my Window
... the ground is covered with a multicoloured layer of leaves. They look like confetti!

I am thinking... that this weeks is shaping up to be hectic! I hope Nature Study Monday can be calm.

I am thankful for... family time- it makes Mondays easier to bear.

From the learning rooms... trying to make sure the basics get done- so nothing special this week :)

From the kitchen... trying to eat more healthy- DH and I put on too much weight recently and I want to nip it in the bud!

I am wearing... denim skirt with a green v-neck top. Hair up on back of my head.

I am creating... some Jesse tree crafts- I have 3 this week, 2 next and I have to make 5 kits of each!

I am reading... Real Education, some mediterranean diet food books and my usual magazines :)

I am hoping... that the kids actually get something done today and that I can get the Jesse Tree craft sorted out by Thursday!

I am hearing... music on the radio and my computer.

Around the house... laundry- as ever- and some judicial tidying up!

One of my favorite things... is seeing blue skies- we've had a lot of rain recently!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week... Jesse Tree crafts, homeschool meeting, school, reading...;)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you

Handmade costumes are fun :) Yes... I knitted the chainmail!


  1. ADORABLE! I cannot believe you knitted that, very well done! :0)

  2. I love those! You made some great costumes!

    Peace and Laughter,

  3. I've missed your frequent EDM posts.
    I thought as a home schooler you might find this interesting and useful. Please pass it on too!

    P.S. Love the chainmail!

  4. Thanks everyone!

    Barbara- I am working on an autumn accordian right now... so I am still doing :)

  5. Great costumes - I once knitted chainmail, but I was a lot less ambitious than you. I think I just did a hood and sleeves.

    Thank you for your nice comment about my tutorial. How long have you lived in the States for?

  6. Thanks Lil D... I've been over here for almost 10 years now!
