For more Day Books...go on over to Peggy's @ The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today...February 16th..Presidents Day

Outside my window... Sunny skies....and cold. Not real cold..but not warm.

I am thinking... Scott is getting so tired. He has worked everyday since 1/26 except for one day. His next day off is 2/22. He is just so worn out. (Ice Storm)

From the learning rooms... singing songs. And cutting and gluing paper together. Miller likes to use his pre school scissors.

I am thankful for... friends who love me.

From the kitchen... Steaks on the grill, Chicken Divan, Sausage Potato Soup with homemade bread, Shortbread Jam Cookies, Crock Pot Lasagna

I am wearing...pajamas.

I am reading... Southern Living spring catalog.

I am hoping... for smiling faces this week.

I am creating... a door prize for a silent auction at Miller's pre school.

I am hearing...Spongebob on television.

Around the house... cleaning out sock drawers this week, dusting blinds, bathrooms, stripping sheets, dusting, vacuuming, re organizing cabinets in the kitchen.

One of my favorite things... shopping with Madison.

A few plans for the rest of the week... gymnastics, 2 bible studies, nail appointment, MOPS meeting (we are going to learn tips on cake decorating), coffee with a friend, lunch with a friend, a formal dance for Madison to go to...and church.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...Miller's first day at pre school last week. I will do a post on it this week. So stay tuned.

I am still in pjs this morning too! Looks like a good week for you Jen!

Barb said...

What's this? Southern Living has a catalog? How is it that I didn't know this? :-)

Your poor husband. But I'll bet you guys are loving the overtime! Still, that's an awful long time to go without a day off.

The preschool photo is adorable. My word, he's getting big.

I know I want to be a guest at your dinner table this week! The menu sounds good!! Miller is soooo cute! Cant wait to see more pictures. Sorry about Scott having to work so much.

I'm gonna look for that southern living catalog!

I feel for your husband (and your family) as that is very stressful to work that hard and long. I pray he can get the rest he needs to stay healthy and productive.

Hope you have a good week!

Sandra said...

Great daybook Jen, I enjoyed reading it :)

Karen said...

Aww, preschool. Wooden puzzles, learning shapes, crayons. I miss those days.

Your menus always sound so yummy. I'm sure Scott appreciates it, especially the way he's been working so hard.

Sorry that your dh has to work so much.

I'm good --- love your Monday post...busy week ahead. You wear me out! Still! :) Always so busy. I feel like I can't get my stuff done.. how DO you do it????

Becky said...

Hi Jen! Thanks for stopping by. You sound like you have a busy and rewarding week ahead.

And no ... the Butler doesn't have time to bake anymore. Rats! Those were my Valentine cookies. He is pretty good at eating them though :)

I am sorry your husband is so overworked. I hope his paycheck reflects it.

Don't you just love MOPS? I am ... of course ... a mentor. My boys are way grown up, but I love getting together with those precious mamas and their sweet babes.

Have a GREAT week!!
