Daybook for September 26th


Outside my window… it looks like fall, but feels like summer.

I am thinking… about Camo’s birthday coming up in about six weeks. I’m pondering what sort of cake to make for him. I know that I still have time to decide, but I like to plan ahead.

I am thankful for… the spark of creativity in my children. (Even if the expression is at times messy!)

From the learning rooms… my kids seem to have inherited my penmanship. I’m doing my best to change this. I found some really nice copywork pages for Munchkin, and it seems to be helping her to slow down and write as neatly as she can.

From the kitchen… I just finished off the last Twix bar in the package… Do you think Aaron will notice?

I am wearing… jeans, my “Got Yarn?” t-shirt and the LL Bean mocs that my feet spend the colder months living in.

I am creating… the sweetest princess sweater for Munchkin. My plan is to knit it for Christmas. I’m trying to alter the pattern slightly though, so we will see how successful that is!

I am going… to be taking part in the Bloom Book Club over at (in)courage. It may be just what I need right now.

I am reading… still reading One Thousand Gifts.

I am hoping… that fall doesn’t pass by too quickly.

I am hearing… John William’s march from “1941”. I’ve never seen the movie, but the music is fantastic! I’m a sucker for a good march!

Pondering these words… “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” – Isaiah 41:10

Around the house… this may not be exactly “around the house” but I want to wallpaper my living room with this photo!

One of my favorite things… the kids taking an empty cereal box and making a parking lot out of it for their cars.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Lots of learning, laughing and laundry!

  1. Hi, Teish,
    I was checking to make sure your blog link worked correctly for the HEDUA review site, and came upon this lovely post. I don’t have time to read a lot, as I’m trying to get some work done, but this was a really fun post. Do you do it every week?

    I started 1000 Gifts, and stopped for a while. I’ve been thinking about getting back into it. I have so much reading to do. *sigh* Do you have a favorite part?

    Nice looking blog. I’ll be back!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Jenny!

    Yes, I usually do a Daybook post every Monday. I first saw it on a friend’s website and just fell in love with the idea!

    I don’t think I can pick a favorite part of Ann’s book. So much of it seems to be speaking directly to me! It’s definitely one of those books that I have to read a little bit at a time and then ponder what I’ve read before continuing on. 🙂
