A Simple Womans Daybook - Regrouping and Organising
A Simple Woman's Daybook 26th October~
Here is the link to Peggy's who is our Hostess for A Simple Womans Daybook. Hop on over and see what some others are doing this week.
Outside My Window ...
Overcast day with out much breeze so not a good drying day for the clothes.
I am listening to...
Children packing up lunch and getting organised to go shopping. Others are doing cleaning ready for tomorrow.
I am Praying about...
That the tact we have taken with the house,ie ~that we drastically reduce the price will lead to the sale of the house.
Please God allow this to happen soon, we all desperately want this.
A homeschooling mother of 9 who I only know slightly but who Father John asked me to visit as she is dying of Advanced Cervical Cancer.
Another mother of 9 who is very ill also.
That I can concentrate on reading and learning about Moran's various issues and start to make a difference with her.
I am thinking about...
How tiring it is to constantly get the house ready for NON buying people to look at.
How excited the children were to be starting the new Mini unit studies from now to Advent.
Planning our Advent learning for this year.
Planning for Christmas presents on a depleted budget.
I am thankful for...
A God I know who cares even as I doubt the waiting for things to happen.
Loving and industrious children who can be relied on to pull together when needed.
From the Kitchen...
Breakfast is cold cereal and tea/coffee.
Lunch is sandwiches
Dinner sizzle steak on the BBQ (no stove again) jacket potatoes in the microwave and green salad.
Morning tea - none, again no stove.
I am Reading...
The Out of Sync Child and The Kings of Clonmel in preparation for the NEW book due out on the 2nd of November, only in Australia.
Not much time for reading this week.
I am wearing..
Navy Blue straight skirt and lilac jumper(sweater) and tights and brown boots.
Looking to the Liturgical Year....
All Hallows Eve and All Saints Day Plans for this to come. (Yes I had this last week, I completely missed a week somewhere)
Prepare for Sunday Mass with the reading.
Make a concerted effort with our Prayer pegs this week
In our learning spaces...
Finish up our Assigned Reading for the Month and Maths
Start the new mini unit studies that the children have chosen. (Plans soon)
Learn 3 Christmas carols in preparation for Christmas.
Geography around Australia. (Plans soon)
Do "D" week for the The Alphabet Path with Moran, Myffwyn especially and Corbyn if he wants too.
Work through some of the crafts in the October Lesson Plans
Making Christmas presents
Start Monthly Outlines for Month of November
Around the house...
To get the house in "show room" condition and try to keep it like that.
I will claim a moment for myself...
Do some creative sewing
Go on an exercise walk three times this week, the girls are going to babysit in the afternoon for me. I just can't get up early enough to avoid carrying a small one with me.
My favourite thing at the moment...
Singing Christmas Carols. I love singing, I don't know how good I am but I have always sung to our children and we sing together still.
Great memories.A few extra plans for the week... YES THIS IS THE LIST FOR THIS WEEK, not last week.
Remember I lost last week.
Moran's Baptism Anniversary
Braedon's 18th Birthday. I am not sure if he actually wants to celebrate now or when we move so he can have a "celebratory" birthday.
On Friday Stephen is coming home so travel to Burnie to pick him up after taking Moran to Burnie at 12 noon for her appointment with the Occupational Therapist. Lots of travel this day.
Visit to the lady Father has asked me to. Hopefully Wednesday.
Start to organise the All Hallows Eve party, All Saints and All Souls day activities and food.
Start to plan for Advent and ChristmasA Goal for Myself...
To organise a Prayer, Exercise, Nature Rambles and Crafting and Sewing plan that allows me time to do each of these each day.
How on earth will I fit this in?
Picture thoughts I am sharing:
Jesus caring for the children in his care. I must remember he does want our best interests and things will happen in His time not ours.
So easy to say much harder to do, now more than ever as time marches on towards 4 years of separation.
I pray your own week will be full of Blessings.
