Homemaker's Journal: Monday, November 4, 2019

Keeping a journal has always been a challenge for me, and not something I grew up doing. Posting something positive on a Monday may help me look forward to the rest of the week.

THE WEATHER THIS WEEK...

The temperature is currently 57 degrees and it's sunny outside. Tomorrow we may be getting some rain. Temperatures will be cool all week, with Thursday having a high of 72. Fall has finally arrived in eastern North Carolina!

AROUND THE HOME...

The children have been practicing piano and the baby is in the swing. My husband did more work on a home project this weekend and I'm hoping it will be finished soon. Until then, our school room continues to be a mess, as many things in there are going to be moved to the living room once the project is finished. I have been going through the children's drawings and school work, trying to organize them and throw away what we don't need to keep.

AGENDA FOR TODAY...

Clean the kitchen, do laundry, school work, and piano lessons. It's a typical Monday around here. I'll also be collecting library books that need to be returned tomorrow. If we get all those things done, then maybe we'll put up some fall decorations. 

A PEEK INTO MY DAY...

Sister love.

PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK...

My older daughter has dance class and it is parent observation week. Our church is also having a chili cook-off, though I'm undecided on whether or not I'll be attending. I love chili but because I am breastfeeding a baby who has acid reflux, chili may not be a good idea. As much as I love the fellowship, it'd be torture to go and not eat anything.

  1. Hello there ... my daughter also dances and has observation week this week and next week. Sounds like you have a full day ahead of you. Do you homeschool? I send my kids to public school but the idea of homeschool has been heavy in my heart for a long time. Maybe when they are ready for the high school years.

  4. It was SO tough to throw away some of the things from my daughter's preschool years but macaroni only stays glued on for so long! I ended up taking photos and putting them in an album.
