The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window... countless azaleas. I had forgotten how beautiful the spring is in Virginia.
I am thinking... about getting the house tidy and clean.
I am thankful for... a husband that surprises me every day with his generosity.
From the learning rooms... Zosia has completed her first "learning project"-- making matching animal cards from cutouts from National Geographic.
From the kitchen... the sound of the dishwasher and some homemade banana/chocolate chip bread in the fridge.
I am wearing... a stone necklace that was a present from my parents.
I am creating... a home for my family.
I am going... for a walk with the whole family this afternoon.
I am reading... mainly magazines and the newspaper... need to find a good book.
I am hoping... that the next days with just me and the babies will go as smoothly as the first.
I am hearing... naptime silence (although Zosia sounds like she's still whining a bit).
Around the house... I had an hour to clean up this morning and feel much better. It's amazing how a totally cluttered house sometimes makes me feel cluttered.
One of my favorite things... is having my Aunt Basia come over to play with Zosia.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Doing another "learning project" with Zosia, having some more friends come by to see Lily, a very relaxed weekend with the family.
