Simple Woman's Daybook
I remember when I first started blogging in 2010, I enjoyed participating in this link up and it's also a wonderful way to look back at what was going on at that time in my life. Peggy's prompts help cover so many areas of our daily lives. The link up takes place each Monday. Please take a few minutes to visit her site and link up as well if you'd like.

FOR TODAY: May 4, 2015
OUTSIDE MY WINDOW: It is an absolutely gorgeous morning! Sun is shining, birds are chirping, weather is 60 plus degrees and a gentle breeze.
I AM THINKING: How blessed I am to enjoy this beautiful day and thoughts of homeschooling for the fall. Not to mention my to do list that feels like about a million things ;-)
I AM THANKFUL: To have such a beautiful property to enjoy and raise my family.
I AM WEARING: A short sleeved turquoise shirt with flowers, black yoga pants, and beaded necklace with a flower and beaded earrings. I'm in bare feet currently but will be proudly wearing flip flops today! Finally, no more snow boots!
I AM CREATING: My plan is to work on my scrapbooks for a little while today.
I AM GOING: To take Hayley into school late because she can't do the state testing due to her concussion. Also have to run to the post office :-)
I AM WONDERING: What will happen to our society with all the hate crimes and broken families... I pray often to heal their hearts.
I AM READING: Lydia's Party by Margaret Hawkins. Also several homesteading magazines.
I AM HOPING: Hayley is healed from her concussion soon and is able to enjoy some of her summer activities. That my mom recovers soon from her shoulder surgery and feels better too. :-)
I AM LEARNING: Everything I possibly can about homeschooling in our state so I can make an informed decision for the fall. My heart has truly been calling me in that direction for Kathleen.
IN MY GARDEN: Enjoying asparagus already! Plus strawberries are beginning to bloom. It's about time to plant all our seeds we grew as the weather is beginning to get better.
IN MY KITCHEN: Tonight I am preparing one of our favorite quick, easy meals.... I cook up some turkey sausage in vegetable broth, then add in frozen stir fry veggies with a little more broth. Drain when cooked and enjoy! Since I cut fresh asparagus from our garden yesterday I will be steaming them for a fresh taste this evening.
IN THE HOME SCHOOL ROOM: In my case, this is a work in progress ;-) Research in full swing to put my teaching degree to good use.
A FAVORITE QUOTE FOR TODAY: " A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity" Buddha
A PEEK INTO ONE OF MY DAYS:
Hayley has been working hard alongside Jerry to get our chicken coop built outside. She had taken a break to sit on the swings for a few minutes and I wanted to capture the candid moment... she's tired, but she's smiling.
This was in the morning with Kathleen at the bus stop. We always walk Cooper down with us, and he is just so happy to be with us. I took several shots, but I love this one and how he looks up at her.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: Sitting by the water where it's so peaceful and taking time to reflect and collect some seashells. :-) This was at a lake we went to last year where we had come out to find a new place to live in a new state ;-)
