The Simple Women's Daybook

For Today...April 20, 2009

Outside my window...Where is the sun?? It is cloudy and dark.

I am thinking...It is time to get the kids ready to walk out the door. School starts in 25 minutes.

From the learning rooms... Being self employed takes a lot of time.

I am thankful for... the trust of a friend who gave me their house keys this weekend to watch their dog.

From the kitchen... The Teach made some great grilled chicken this weekend.

I am wearing... Jeans and a black sweater.

I am reading... Twilight (again) and The Side Yard Superhero by Rick Niece.

I am hoping... To check tons more off my to-do list today.

I am creating... Tons of drafted posts because my blog has lost some of it's personality.

I am praying... For the next 30 days to be uneventful. More on that at a later time.

Around the house... Time to start getting the deck ready for more time outdoors. Three more rooms need spring cleaning.

One of my favorite things... Taking pictures. Now I need to the time to look through them.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Learn everything I can about making money.

Here is a picture I would like to share with you...
This was taken on Saturday (a beautiful day), at my girlfriend's annual Spring Hunt.
It used to be called Easter Egg Hunt but since we were past Easter....
I had just taken a bunch of pictures of her family when I asked someone to please
take one of me and my kids. It is time to do that more, I am never in any photos
and as I get older I find I have less and less of me. I used to worry more about how I looked, now, it is just about documenting those moments for my children's future.


  1. Hi--I enjoyed your daybook, I hope you have a productive week!
    I am also always behind the camera. I have a friend who is a great photographer and I've asked her to do a photo shoot of just me so my kids will have some photos to remember me by. Good ones I hope!

  2. Tiffany,

    We mom's behind the camera needs to step out. I used to do a lot of self timer pics with my kids. I think it is time to revisit that.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I always enjoy reading everyone's daybooks. What a beautiful family picture.

    Thanks for coming by my blog and hope to see you often.
