Daybook for Monday 19th January

Peggy over at the Simple Woman's Daybook hosts these daybooks, run on over for a look :)

Outside my window...
it's cold and overcast. They are predicting actual snow for the first time in over a year!!

I am thinking...
that I can't wait for spring. The garden centres are beginning to stock up on seeds and I have catalogues to browse through.

I am thankful for...
a slight warming up of the weather. We had to have the rabbit inside for a few days because it kept getting down into the single digits at night. The kids tormented the poor thing with too much loving, we put him back outside as soon as the weather warmed slightly and he was ecstatic.

From the learning rooms... Completely loving the new schedule. I am sticking to the plans like glue this time- no continuing a lesson even if the work didn't get done. Inconvenient, but so much less hassle.

From the kitchen...
roast chicken. I will use the bones to make stock for soup later in the week. Any leftover meat will be used in lunch menus :)

I am wearing...
dark grey skirt, green v-neck. Bare legs until I find my tights (or what they call pantyhose here). Hair up in a twist.

I am creating...
art again. Working my way through a drawing book. Might make a few Artist Trading Cards this week for someone who wants to swap :)

I am going... to the grocery store. Maybe outside into the yard. Not much planned here :)

I am reading...
STILL have my Victoria and Food Matters by Mark Bittman (but only the recipes right now) and my art book :)

I am hoping...
to do some more of my drawing book PLUS adding a page to my journal...

I am hearing...
Rebel talking, the water running and the heat-pump pumping.

Around the house...
Cleaning. I want to make M'Lady a cardigan too.

One of my favorite things...
grocery stores that think outside the box (see my photo).

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Make M'Lady's cardigan, organise a homeschooler gathering, take M'Lady to a birthday party (which means buy a present for her friend).

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Picking up extra groceries became easier this weekend- M'Lady gets to do the pushing ;)


  1. Your picture is too cute! I'm also longing for Spring to arrive. I can't wait to see my tulips popping out of the ground.

    Have a blessed day!

  2. Good Morning and thank you for posting your daybook entry. I enjoyed reading it. I used to just LOVE stores that have the mini-carts. Now my own DD is too big to use anything except the regular carts, but they're still so cute! Have a great day!

  3. Those miniature shopping carts are awesome! Although, my daughter liked to run over the backs of my heels while following me with one!

    Adorable picture of M'Lady!

  4. What an adorable picture! I enjoyed reading your Daybook.

  5. I've often thought a rabbit would be a good pet, but we just do NOT have the room to bring one inside when the weather is bad.


I always enjoy your comments, so please feel free to leave them or message me if you cannot!
