A Simple Daybook

Outside my window,
Green and pink everywhere. Spring has come into our garden and the first pink cherry blossoms have given way to green. Soon the blue and yellow of Iris will grace our garden.

I am listening to...
My daughter sewing, finishing off a yellow summer dress.

I am thankful for...
My kids, we are in the middle of birthday season, and it is good to single each one out for a time and enjoy their gifts and uniqueness.

From the learning rooms...
We've returned to Friday's being project day. Its nice for me to be able to tidy up the loose ends and relax at the end of the week. It is also good to see the fruit of our learning at the end of the week.

From the kitchen..
Its Sunday afternoon and all of us are looking forward to hour weekly home-made pizza. It's a nice simple way to end the day, especially as now the kids help to prepare it. Meringues are on the menu as well, using up the egg whites from last nights desert.

I am reading...
I'm looking forward to enjoying the early Rome selections from Omnibus, the Aeneid and The Early History of Rome, as well as starting Kreeft's the Best Things in Life.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
Schools out for Monday - Labour weekend, for the rest of the week, I'm hoping to plant out some of the seedlings we have been growing.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

A Long Absence

It has been a while since I have posted. I would like to say a lot has happened, I've been busy and life has certainly felt like it the truth is it has been good to hide away and let the world pass by my computer screen. Sometimes it is necessary to just be.

Ballet exams have come and gone, we passed with Merit, I'm pleased and my daughter enjoyed the chocolate.

Spring has come and my garden is turning green and lush again. Weeds are growing and being pulled, seeds planted, the fishpond is even starting to look like a pond again.

But the good things of winter, the fire, the skiing remained just a little longer this year we got to enjoy the warmth of spring and the fun of winter. Sometimes it isn't hard to see that life is good.

Hopefully this sees me blogging again...
