The Simple Woman's Daybook

OK, so it's not Monday
And it's not morning

But I want to do this so I shall

FOR TODAY Thursday 23rd October...

Outside My Window...
Dusk is falling and it will be dark soon. From my chair at the computer desk, all I can really see is the upstairs of the house on the other side of the road, a few trees and the sky.

I am thinking...
That I feel as if I might be coming down with something. I am feeling dizzy and slightly light headed. Good excuse to get the boys to do dinner though.

From the Learning Rooms...
Just got back from Parent teacher Consultation for youngest (14). We joke about these. He loves school, he's bright, he's gifted in fact, and so we joke about how awful these things are and how we come away in such a bad mood. But really we don't! He's doing well in most of his subjects. And now he wants to do Latin! A local school started a basic Latin course just two weeks ago as an after school optional thing. We're going to see if they would let him on that since he doesn't go to their school. If not we're looking at a home school option and my good friend Dana is looking into that for me.

I am thankful for...
So many things and so many people. This week in particular I am thankful for my husbands job even if it does keep him busy more than we would like. At least he still has one. I am thankful for nice nurses who took their time with my blood test and tried not to dig for a vein. I am oh so thankful for comments from total strangers (well more or less, I have spent perhaps 30 minutes in interaction with this lady and only 2 hours total in her presence) which I just know were straight from God.

I am Excited about...
Sorry, I just HAD to add this one in here. I am Sooo excited for my friend Cheryl who is starting school this week. AND for my friends Dan and Sophie who are "getting married AGAIN" God has done such an amazing turn around in their lives in the last 6 months that they are almsot unrecognisable from the couple they were before!

From the kitchen...
in the oven right now a chicken, roasting and a tray of small potatoes drizzled with olive oil and tossed in that and sea salt and herbs de provence. I'll get one of the boys to make a salad to go with that, which will probably jsut involve opening a bag of salad leaves.

I am wearing...
My school assembly trousers! And a brown and orange top.

I am creating...
not a lot other than masses of Twitter posts.

I am going...
to be going away for a night with my husband over the weekend. Oh it's wonderful. Out of his overtime money he is treating me to dinner with live Jazz music and a night at the Mytton and mermaid hotel and restaurant. If you've been around me online for a while you will have seen photos of it on my Flickr.

I am reading...
Disciple, lots of Twitter posts the job section of the paper and little else really.

I am hoping...
That if I am coming down with somethign that it get itself over and done with quickly before that night away. Also that the boys won't argue too much while we're away.

I am hearing...
The ktichen timer clicking away, the low hum of the fan oven and vague noises from the TV in the other room.

Around the house...
I have been baking quite a bit this week and with the odd spill here and the odd sprinkle of that there, the cooker top is looking a bit grungy. Need to clean that up tomorrow.

One of my favourite things...
One of my favourite things right now is a big fluffy jumper. There's only me here during the day and I really don't want to heat the whole house for just little ole me until I absolutely have to, so big jumpers it is. I just need some big fluffy slippers to match.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:
Well, tomorrow I have to help youngest take a Wii game back to the game swap shop, cuz it was scratched. I also need to make some phone calls about that Latin course. I need to print some sign up lists for Church, stay caught up with Disciple and that's about it really.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...
