Simple Woman's Daybook & Monday's Mention!

Outside my window... the sun is trying to come out. It is mostly cloudy though. This weekend we hit 80!

I am thinking... how fun to check my blogger dashboard this morning and see my name and blog listed twice! I won a giveaway over at A Steady Rain and Sharon at A Few of My Favorite Things featured me for her Monday Mention!

I am thankful for... the celebration of Mother's Day.

From the learning rooms... we are plugging away at our lessons. Next week I will administer the California Achievement Test for our standardized test. In NY we only have to use a standardized test every other year, with a narrative on the alternate years, but I prefer to test every year.

From the kitchen... baked chicken, leftover macaroni salad and veggies. Pear blueberry crumb pie for dessert :)

I am wearing... my pajamas still. I did some cleaning this morning and don't want to get dressed until I workout and I am still hoping.

I am going... to acupuncture, the dentist, soccer and church this week.

I am reading... the Bible, "Lies Women Believe and The Truth That Sets Them Free" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, which is our new book for the ladies book study.

I am hearing... the fan blowing.

One of my favorite things: Silk Soy Vanilla Creamer. Still giving up cow's milk I finally found something that is thick and creamy.

  1. I love the spring layout!

    In WI we don't have to administer standardized tests... could you tell me where to look for one, though? I'd like to test my 10 year old and I've only been able to find an assessment for reading so far.

    Have a nice day!

  2. I just got done reading that book! Enjoy your study. Loved reading your daybook. Blessings.

  3. How exciting you won a giveaway!!! It is hard to give up dairy, but there are just takes some trial and error to find what products you like. I gave up cream and sugar in my coffee several years ago and at first it was NOT enjoyable to drink it, but after a few weeks I became accustomed to it and now I can't stand the taste of cream or sugar in coffee. HA! I like using the regular almond milk in my cereal. They have vanilla flavor too.

  4. Thanks for visting my blog! :) I really miss homeschooling. My son is in 4th grade and afterChristmas break he decided he wanted to give public school a try...and he loves it, sniff sniff. ;) I LOVE PAJAMAS! Congrats on your giveaway win!

  5. Hi Theresa, Thanks for visiting! So happy to meet you. I'm listening to your playlist and enjoying the music I hear. I really enjoy the SWD entries I read. So grateful to Peggy for hosting my favorite Monday activity. Hugz!

  6. Your menu sounds delicious!

    Congratulations on winning a giveaway. It's always fun to win something.

    I haven't read that particular book but Nancy Leigh DeMoss is a great author so I'm sure you'll get a lot out of it.

  7. Lies Women Believe is a great book. We did that as a small group study many years ago at my church. Hope you get a lot out of it!

  8. Well congratulations on your wins
    Have fun testing...we don't have to do them here in Texas, but I did for a couple of years for my kids until I realized I knew exactly where they were in subjects and the test only told me what I already knew

    Have an awesome week!!!
