The Simple Womans Day Book

Outside My Window: Would you believe more rain? We actually had a beautiful sunny day yesterday afternoon. I took the kids to the park and not a soul was there. Maybe everyone has forgotten what a sunny day feels like. All hope for Spring is lost again though.

I am hearing: The pattering of the rain on the window, a kid shuffling boxes around making a race track.

I am thinking: I have really got to get back to a normal bed routine. I was up tossing and turning all night, even though I went to bed at a decent time. I then didn't help matters by laying back down after dropping off the kids. It's bad when your kid is trying to have a conversation with you and you say two words, doze off and he's yelling at you again for a response to another question. Rinse and Repeat

I am hoping: That the rain will clear off, and we will actually get some Spring before Summer hits us like a freight train.

From the kitchen:

Monday: Roast

Tuesday: Tostadas

Wednesday: Dijon Chicken

Thursday: Talapia

Friday: Unsure were going out of town more on that.

I am reading: I finished The Mysterious Benedict Society and loved it. I stopped by the library Thursday to grab another read as I can't go to long without reading something. I checked the availability of the Host, figuring it would be checked out. The computer showed their was one available. I scoured the shelf with no luck. I asked and the librarian was very hesitant that it was actually in. She scoured the back and I scoured all over for misplacement and it was not to be found. Someone's reading it at the library and has it well hidden, I'm sure of it. Anyways, I'm sure you didn't care to know this but I grabbed The Revenge of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz.

Those of you who are keeping track of my read books (of course you are) would say; but Jean you haven't read The Curse of the Spellmans yet. Right you are friend, right you are. I figured as long as I read the first I should be good. It was one of those mad dash I can't remember what's on my to be read list grabs. I love her writing style and she gives me a guilt trip through out the book- that if I didn't read Spellman 1 and 2 it's readily available in paperback. That makes me laugh and feel like I'm breaking the law. :)

I am creating: I just haven't been that creative lately

Around the house: Yeah I was going to do that experiment with the clean house last week. None was really needed as the moment I cleaned 5-10 minutes later you would have never known. At least the effort is there...sigh.

One of my favorite things: Spinach salad with raspberry vinegrette. Yum, I've been eating it like crazy. I also love getting a card for mothers day from my mom and finding a sweet little check in it. Totally unexpected and really not necessary, that's my mom for ya.

Plans for the week: Gameboy has a 4th grade perfomance, and Friday we're headed up North as my parents got us tickets for the Lion King on broadway this weekend (bet you can guess what next weeks WW A to Z will be-perfect timing) oh and also Saturday is this little thing called my anniversary, 11 years my friends...11 long interesting years.

That's a great photo of the family. I hate when books are "in" but aren't... no fun for sure.

Check out my current giveaways! A Bath Luve and a Dapper Tag! You can find them on my left sidebar. said...

Love the pic of you and your kids! I am hoping to figure out why I am having so much trouble downloading to this stupid laptop soon and get caught up on some of mine.
I lurves me some spinach salad and raspberry vinaigrette would be wonderful on it! Thanks a lot... now I have a craving! ;-)

I'm trying to remember all the events that happen in the three different Spellman books. It seems like you'd want to read them in order, but maybe? I don't know.

Mmmm I love raspberry vinaigrette! Delicious!
