Simple Woman's Daybook

(maybe this will help me feel a little less complicated today...Ha!)

For today...

Outside my window...a baby pool has been transformed into a makeshift terrapin habitat for Noah's new friend.

I am thinking...about cake.

I am thankful for...dear, sweet friends who are always so willing to help.

From the learning rooms...we are playing "Tens Go Fish" (must make pairs of number cards that equal 10) and making a treasure box for a birthday present.

From the kitchen...I am making butter and boiling a chicken to put away in the freezer.

I am wearing...sweats and a tee shirt. (Y'all should be used to that by now.)

I am creating...a mess outside my bedroom door, because I got a wild hair to get rid of a bunch of books and put the rest on shelves in our closet so that we can sell these hideous, commercial-looking bookshelves.

I am going...to
Family Camp this weekend!!

I am reading...through an issue of
Real Simple (my FAVORITE magazine)...and Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore...and curriculum (told you).

I am hoping...our house will be clean by Friday, but there's really nothing to base that hope on.

I am hearing...silence at nap time. Ah...

Around the house...you'd be surprised to find a turtle walking around IN. my. house. with no kid nearby. Hmm...

One of my favorite things...Cream Soda. SUCH a guilty pleasure. And shopping at Wal-Mart with all four kiddos sometimes drives me to it.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Post about baby wipe solution. Cook and put away some more baby food. Pack. Clean?

Here is a picture thought I am sharing:

Buttery, Homemade Chicken Pot Pie:
The Dish of Love

Definitely NOT the same dish you used to eat in the school cafeteria or frozen TV dinner, which ever was worse! No cans of Veg-All here!!! Praise God!

Please excuse the ever-so-lovely paper towel underneath my heart-shaped Emile Henry casserole...I was too busy stuffing my face to worry with removing it for a photo. Thanks for the yummy meal, Julie!

  1. I love chicken pot pie!!! it is one of my favs, however my family is not so crazy about it....I think THEY are crazy!!!

  2. Love the dish!

    BTW, JI adores the treasure box. Seriously. Big time points with him. He's carried it around all morning. Please tell Noah that JI felt so loved last night.

  3. Ahhh....the silence of nap time! Nothing sweeter! (not even when they all are gone to school!) They're still young enough to really like you and need you, safe in your own home, yet quiet and peaceful as you tiptoe around the house. All is at peace with the world.....I DO miss those days!

  4. P.S. You need to update my blog address in your blogroll to kittinoskarousel2.blogspot.com. I don't want people to think that I'm so lazy that I haven't blogged in 3 months. I AM lazy, but ppplllleeeaassseee!!!!

  5. I LOVE that you had a turtle walking around your house. And can't wait to see your family camp pics; sounds fun!
