Simple Woman #57

For Today  April 12, 2010

Outside my window...  sunny, but cold.  We still have snow on some of the nearby hills.  But the grass is growing, robins are nesting, and the dandelions are blooming.

I am thinking...  how nice it was to (mostly) take a week off :D

i am thankful for...  friends, no rain on soccer Saturday, Grampa Grasshopper home safe from his hunting trip, and a TAX REFUND is coming.  Hallelujah!

I am praying for...  a friend with sick kiddos.  Not scary-sick, but no-joy-in-Mudville sick.

I am wearing...  jeans.  Well, duh.

I am creating...  I just finished a gift for a friend... but she might see this so no pics yet.

I am going...  to a baby shower this evening for two cousins - Jack and Mac.  Really.

I am reading...  lots of books about Lewis and Clark, with the boys.

I am hoping...  for warmer weather!

I am hearing...  robins, chickadees, and crows.

I am remembering...  must call bunny lady tomorrow and find out if the bunnies are big enough to leave their mama bunny.  Some very excited boys are waiting.

From the learning rooms...  trying to get back in the groove after a week of break.  Lets see, Lewis and Clark, ratios, times sevens, grammar - tenses, Rudyard Kipling, watercolor painting, and rejoicing with those who rejoice.

From the kitchen...  leftover soup. 

Around the house...  must put Easter things away.  And do something about all the dust.

On my mind...  the good time we had Sunday afternoon with our friends from church :D

Noticing that...  the days are getting longer.  If only they were getting warmer!

Pondering these words... 

One of my favorite things...  quiet.  Peace and quiet.

A few plans for the rest of the week...  school, school, and school, baby shower, homeschool meeting, Moms In Touch prayer group, AWANA, soccer, soccer, and more soccer.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

the tree in our front yard

Spring trees in bloom are always so cheering! I hope you get your bunnies soon. We have two. i hope your weather warms up soon. Despite some chilliness last week it's still quite hot here ;-)

Have fun at the shower! So sad I will have to miss it - Justin's at work and well,you know the rest. I'm finishing up gifts today though so. Baby presents are so fun!

Ahhh, I love seeing all the new life in Spring ... sounds of birds chirping, all the budding of flowers and trees - just brings a peace about me. LOVE the picture! Beautiful.
