Simple Woman's Daybook - October 20


For Today - October 20, 2014

Outside my window...it's a beautiful autumn day. It's a little warm but a bit of a breeze, and I can see leaves falling from the trees.

I am thinking...that Indiana is really beautiful in the autumn. Our weather may be bipolar at times and I might not always like it, but I think autumn makes up for it.

I am thankful...for my home. I've been cleaning today and instead of wishing for something else or something new, I'm learning to work with what I've got and make it the best it can be.

In the kitchen...the crockpot is cooking spicy chicken tacos! (The crockpot is a magnificent invention!)

I am wearing...cleaning clothes. Not glamorous but practical. Black yoga pants, a black & grey long sleeve shirt, stretchy socks, and tennis shoes.

I am creating...organization out of chaos! :)

I am going...nowhere at the moment! (Since it's evening.) But earlier I went to the dollar store to get some things to organize my bathroom closet.

I am wondering...if this little baby is going to flip soon. During our last midwife visit, baby was feet first and that's still where I'm feeling most of my kicks!

I am reading...I just finished "Finding God at the Kitchen Sink - Search for Glory in the Everyday Grime" by Maggie Paulus. (And I'm going to be posting my review of it later this week here on the blog!)

I am hoping...to try some new recipes this week.

I am looking forward to...my husband's birthday tomorrow. He's not big on birthdays but the kids love celebrating.

I am learning...constantly! The kids have so many questions and I feel like through homeschooling I am picking up on so many things too. (Or remembering things I learned!)

Around the house...I completely deep cleaned our master bathroom today. Minus a few places I couldn't reach on the ladder. Yes, I had a ladder out and everything. :D Pregnancy nesting begins! I reorganized and rearranged the closet, scrubbed everything, swept, did a quick mop, and wiped down all the surfaces.

I am pondering...winter maternity photos. I've been looking at them on Pinterest and have found so many pretty examples of things to try.

A favorite quote for today..."So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." - 1st Corinthians 10:31

One of my favorite things...from today was Ellie singing a song about "the most beauitful-est mommy in the world" who is apparently, me! I don't believe it but I'll take the compliment!

A few plans for the rest of the week...more cleaning and more schooling. :) Those are my general plans every week. But since this nesting has kicked in I will use it to my advantage while I'm still able to get around pretty well! Stepdaughter is coming for a visit this weekend and the boys (my cousins & my Dad) are coming one day over the weekend to play D&D!

A peek into my day...
