The Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY March 16, 2009...
Outside my window...bitter cold. I had thought that spring would soon be here. It's a teeth-chattering negative 20 degrees out right now and the snow shows no signs of melting.
I am thinking...that I should buy some seeds to start in the garage. I plan to have a full greenhouse this year.
I am thankful for... a full night's rest!
From the learning rooms...Ancient Rome in history, weather in science, teaching Kate her multiplication tables, adding and subtracting mixed numbers with Ellie
From the kitchen...cheesy puffy pancakes, OJ and canned peaches for breakfast
I am wearing...PJs. I will eventually change though, because I have to leave the house today.
I am creating...lesson plans so that I can be more organized than I have been in the past few weeks.
I am going...to Sam's Club to fill our fridge and pantry.
I am reading...I just finished Breaking Dawn and I'm going to find something new today.
I am hoping...that I can actually get some things done this week!!
I am hearing...Van Morrison on the stereo. The sounds of my happy baby munching on cheerios.
Around the house...I desperately need to clean my bedroom. I'm hoping I get to that this week.
One of my favorite things...break up in Alaska. The sound of all of the snow and ice melting. It makes my heart leap with joy!! I can't wait for it to actually happen - probably another month.
A few plans for the rest of the week:to visit Ice Alaska at night (if it's warm enough). I want to see the ice sculptures lit up in the dark.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
Here are the kids on the ice train at Ice Alaska. You can see that Nick (to the left) is sliding down the attached slide. This one was one of his favorites (of course he loves anything trains!)

I enjoyed reading your daybook, and I appreciate your husband's service to our country and your family's sacrifices while he's away serving in the military. Thanks & God Bless!

You're daybook is such a pleasure to read. I bet the ice breaking up where you are is quite unique. I've never heard ice breaking up. Do take pictures of the sculptures if you make there one of these nights. I bet that would be really awesome to see.
