What is my blog about? It's about Torah family living. It's about letting Torah affect our daily lives, from mealtime to bedtime, homeschooling to farm chores.

My Simple Woman's Daybook


Outside my window...it is very dark.  The goats are asleep under the bathroom window.

I am thinking...how fun this post is to put together.  I have been focusing on school alot lately and this has been a nice change of pace.

I am thankful for...YHVH seeing fit to bless us with another little person to raise for Him.  My precious little person, I do not know your name yet, or what you look like, but please know that you are most welcome here.  Daddy and I love you already and we hope you are enjoying being fashioned by your Creator.  He loves you so much.

From the learning rooms...Wow!  We learned about the Johnstown Flood today.  I have learned that my children are creative, easily distracted, remember things well, and are very fond of scissors.  I have also learned that white school glue needs to be re-engineered.

From the kitchen...I can see Gramma doing most of the work.  Bless her heart, she is so good to me and does things before I even get a chance.  I do plan to make a loaf of bread in the morning, however.

I am wearing...a black top, red handkerchief on my head, denim skirt with an elastic waistband I added to accomodate my soon to be bigger belly, purple kneesocks and slippers.  Oh and the key to my office on a string around my neck.  Do you really think I'm going to let the kids in my newly organized office?

I am creating...lists of ideas for Torah School.  I'm trying to keep ahead of the current torah portion by a few weeks if I can.

I am going...to town next week to pick up my food co op order.  I don't get out much, so I'm very excited.  I'll be going to the dollar store to buy some pink and purple bandannas and I'll go to the thrift shop to peruse their children's bookshelf.  Hey, maybe I'll even find some new maternity tops!

I am reading...All New Square Foot Gardening

I am hoping...to make it through the next 2 months with minimal discomfort.  I'm also hoping my vitamin order will get here quickly so I can start taking milk thistle to relieve my tummy.

I am hearing...the refrigerator hum and the dog snore.  Everyone else is sleeping.

Around the house...grows lots of grass.  Inside, grows lots of messes.  I work more diligently on the inside, sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.  I think today might be a draw.

One of my favorite things...hand knit knee socks.  Why do I only have one pair?

A few plans for the rest of the week:  Install a phone line for Gramma, finish some more Torah School posts, get the house ready for Sabbath, build block towers for school, and begin work on my final writing assignment for my college class.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

How's that for a smile inducer?
