My Day Book


Outside my window... It is dark and quiet because it is 3:51 AM.  Great time of the day to get things done.  The air is a lot cooler.   

I am thinking... about my new trade show, She Made It!  I can't wait for all these talented women to get together and show the world what they are made of!

I am thankful for...a smooth operation yesterday.  I was nervous about this because their is always risk no matter how routine.  My kids were well taken care of by their grandma and the doctors were awesome.

From the learning rooms...We are still working on the number 5 at Home Sweet School.  On Monday we went to the library and the gym.  Exercise is so good for our son.  He really needs it!  When we got back we sat down to do some science (watching our avocado see grow), he was very focussed.  We have had some bumpy bits in the last week but I pray that he will settle down and I will learn to sit with his inability to sit.

From the kitchen...On Saturday our Kitchen Club met at church for the first time.  We made about 42 meals for under 360.00 dollars!  We worked really well together and got a lot done.   I was so grateful for this time.  Even though I didn't plan it, the cooking session came in handy because I was able to use one of the meals for dinner after the surgery.    

I am creating...a new vision for our Christmas Breakfast.  I love planning stuff like this.  My inspiration is Elizabeth and Mary (and Jesus of course!) and fruit.  Can't wait for all the ideas to start flowing.

I am hoping...that  I can seriously pray for change in my heart.  I really want God to help me breath and live the lessons I am trying to teach our children.  (I posted this last time... and I am still there.  Please pray for me.)

A few plans for the rest of the week: Tomorrow is my favourite day because we have MOPS. A great time where mothers meet and share.  My two sons also have AWANA in the evening.  On Friday we meet up with our homeschool group.

Here is a picture for sharing:


Weird Fact About Us:  Our children know that Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy aren't real.  My 5 year old son has had some interesting debates.  He has been instructed to respect differing opinions. 

Join in the fun!  Share your day with The Simple Woman's Day Book.

Neat vision for Christmas dinner. I hope you share when you know what you want to do.
I like what you shared about learning the lessons you are teaching your kids. Parenting is a huge growing process.

Wonderful post. I wish that our daughter didn't believe in Santa. My husband and I differed strongly about this and so I let it go, making sure that Jesus was brought into the conversation and that Santa does what he does to celebrate Jesus' birthday. Unfortunately, when we asked her a month ago what was special about Christmas, she said Santa. We kept prompting for Jesus' birthday but it never came. You can probably imagine how I glared at my husband. I've told him when she discovered the truth, he gets to explain why he lied.

Anyhow, kudos to you for truth and keeping Jesus first in all things like you are.

This is my first time visiting from my Wordless Wednesday. We had AWANA last night. If my 7yo could, he'd blaze thru his book. My 11yo struggles to get one page done. I would love to get together and do that many meals! Amazing. Love that photo of the kids sleeping! And you're not the only one in the same place as where you've prayed about before.
