My Daybook-Feb 9, 2009

Well, this is my first daybook so here goes!


Outside my window...all the snow is gone and the sun is shining.

I am thankful for...time with my family this past weekend in the mountains. My parents rented a house for our family and my brother's. We had fun just hanging out, roasting marshmellows in the fireplace, playing games, dancing with the singing deer, movies when the kids went to bed... The guys went skiing Saturday; the girls went shopping Sunday!

Towards a Real Education...we'll be learning about A-A-APPLES! Learning how they grow and their uses, doing a taste test, lots of baking, reading some great picture books and focus on the Fruits of the Spirit. We'll also use Van Gogh's The Pink Orchard for our artist study. But since it's the wrong time of year for this unit, I'm not quite sure what we'll do for our Outdoor Nature Study time.

To Live the Liturgy...we'll learn about Saint Valentine and find ways to express love and affection to one another. I hope to post about this more later!

From the kitchen...we're making apple sauce today. How have I never made this before? It seems so easy-peasy!

I am wearing...a new stripped Old Navy shirt I got on the sale rack for $2.24!

I am creating...I'm still working on knitting my very first scarf, but I can't decide if I should sign up for another round of knitting classes. I desperately need the help...

I am take my daughter to dance class tonight! She had to miss last week because of her cold so she will be so excited.

I am reading...Real Food for Healthy Kids by Tracey Seaman and Tanya Steel because I seem to be in such a rut for breakfasts and lunches. How many days in a row can you have oatmeal for b'fast and PBJ for lunch?

I am hoping...we are finally over our colds. This has been the longest bout of colds my little ones have had. I can't wait for them to be their usual perky selves.

I am hearing...much-needed coffee brewing.

One of my favorite things secret stash of Chocolate Tastycakes! Thanks, mom!!

Around the house...things are getting back into order after a trip away. I'm always amazed how long it takes, especially since we were only gone 2 nights!

Bringing beauty to my home ...I've printed a copy of Van Gogh's The Pink Orchard. I hope it will inspire good discussion and the hope of Spring.

A few plans for the rest of the week: It looks like a quiet week. Looking forward to our Valentine's Day Feast!

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Love the photo thought.
