The Simple Womans Day Book

Outside my window... it's actually been kind of a overcast day. Now it's dark and so very quiet. Our old house was near a busy highway and it constantly was streaming with cars whizzing by.

I am thinking... That I still have a lot of un packing to do. I'm also trying to decide if I should break open the knick knack stuff for the living room and that this mauve color on the walls is actually growing on me.

I am thankful for... our new home and hubs awesome new job and the blessing of being home for a change with my boys.

From the kitchen... I made Barb's meatloaf with scalloped potatoes and green beans. The boys loved the meatloaf which was shocking as they always make random jokes about meatloaf and never really eat it. The kitchen for the most part is clean except for a dish or two soaking.

I am wearing... My pajamas finally, it's been a busy day even for just being home. I'm constantly trying to keep the house under control.

I am creating... We made haunted trees today as part of a little "preschool" project about fall. I'm kind of flying by the seat of my pants at this point. Tomorrow I will get more time with Bossyboy as the big boys officially start their new school tomorrow.

I am reading... "was" reading Anne of Avonlea. I meant to add the series to the Fall Reading Challenge and forgot. I grabbed the abridged version that has Gables, Avonlea, and House of Dreams. Big Mistake. I forgot how much they mess up the whole story. I stopped after finishing Avonlea. Pfft on abridged books. I will start up on Twilight very soon now.

I am hoping... the boys do ok on their first day.

I am hearing... a dog barking in the distance, hubs and I clicking and typing on the 'puter, other than that dead silence. No T.V. still.

Around the house... I'm slowly getting things put away here and there. I'm the most ADD person there is when it comes to un packing and doing things around the house. I literally start into something and have to go into the next room and dive into something else. I then come back 15, 30, 45 minutes later to finish up whatever else it was I was doing. I may have done ten other things in that time frame.

One of my favorite things... finding new little things I enjoy about the new house. Like discovering the little gnome among our shrubs in the front yard.

A few plans for the rest of the week... More preschool activities. A trip to check out the new library for early readers day. Maybe making some home made applesauce in the crock pot.

Here is a picture I am sharing:How about a sneak peek of my kitchen? You'll get to see the full thing very soon. Promise!

Great post!! I may steal it.

I'm always so jealous of people that move..since I've only been in 2 houses my whole life. I can't WAIT for a new house.

Boys look happy, that's a good start. I can't wait to see it. And how in the world do you make applesauce in a crockpot. Seriously, I have nothing planned for today & wouldn't go to that trouble. You are in the middle of a move & doing it. I am such a slacker.

Hey, come over and get your reward. It's not even in a box for you to unpack. Isn't that great?
