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 #2


Outside my window...it is dark and there is lots of snow.  I don't go out much if I can help it.  But I did make it to the mailbox today, a 1/3 mile walk.

I am thinking...about what to have for snack lol!

I am thankful for...Torah, a home, a family, and a pretty belly.

From the learning rooms...We have been doing a lot of changing it up in the last couple weeks.  This is why I haven't posted much on homeschooling.  We are doing copywork everyday, Hebrew lessons, and I switched math curriculums, so I'll get together a post soon.

From the kitchen...Well, I have a new island that I absolutely love.  Doug just needs to plug the holes, because it was supposed to be used for a workbench.  It has 32 holes drilled in the top, a challenge when you are chasing crumbs.

I am wearing...my purple butterfly wrap skirt, a brown tshirt, kneesocks, a purple headscarf, and okay, I admit it, an orange plaid flannel shirt.  Hey, I'm cold!

I am creating...a wool hoodie for Doug.  It has blue, green, and brown stripes, but I'm wondering if I should leave the sleeves and hood a solid color.  We'll see.

I am going...3 hours away for an ultrasound in less than a month!  I am very excited to see what's going on in there.

I am reading...Living More with Less, The Three R's, and several Torah portions at a time.

I am hoping...to finish my book before my due date.

I am hearing...The Fox and the Hound, which the kids are watching right now.

Around the house...I have been cleaning various areas of the house.  Chalk it up to nesting.

One of my favorite things...spring.

A few plans for the rest of the week:  I hope to finish three more chapters in my book.  I'd like to sew a couple diaper covers and fix Doug's snowpants.  Hey, maybe I'll even make some cookies!

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Looks like someone was having fun before mommy woke up!  Elisha took his first step this week!

Can't wait to hear your homeschooling post and the results from your ultrasound. So exciting! When are you due? How are you feeling?
Will you share pictures of Doug's new hoodie when you are finished with it?

Hello! I am 21 weeks right now. I'm due in late May or early June. I take a nap every day, but overall, I am feeling pretty good. I will definitely post a pic of Doug's hoodie. I am making it up as I go. One of the stripes was too light, which we didn't like, so Doug told me to embroider some hebrew on it lol!

I like your description of your day and clothes. That was sweet. Cute little one too!

I love your blog and it was great to talk yesterday! I think you and my cousins would love the blog ZooBorns. Its all gorgeous pictures of baby animals born into zoo, and often rare ones! It would be worth it to look through old posts. <3 Katie
