June Daybook

For Today

Looking out my's cold-ish and windy. Feels almost autumn-like.

I am thinking....I am so blessed! This life is good.

I am thankful....for my many friends

One of my favorite things....sitting out in the sun in my backyard

I am jeans, a striped shirt, and an Old Navy hoodie

I am creating....homemade coasters from rope and strips of fabric

I am reading....The Sound of Gravel a memoir by Ruth Wariner. 

I am watching....nothing right now. I started watching the series "The 100" and it was addicting, but depressing. I ended up deleting Netflix from my Kindle! 

I am listening to....Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace CD's again. Good stuff!

I am sell some things on ebay

I am take care of myself. And that it's ok to slow down, and to do things for my enjoyment and growth.

In my kitchen....I am eating meat again, after being a vegetarian for years!

In the school room....I have been very proud of my kids. They have been doing really well with their schoolwork, and we are close to finishing for the summer!

  1. Hello and thank you for posting your daybook! I have made homemade coasters and they turn out nice. Are you braiding them? I made a tight braid and then circled them on a stiff piece of cardboard and then trimmed it out. They have lasted for years.

  2. Hi Peggy, I used to post daybooks years ago! I'm glad you're still doing them! I made my coasters by winding strips of fabric around medium sized rope, then coiling the rope using a hot glue gun to keep it in place.

  3. Hi, Tracey, I'm visiting from the Daybook. My homeschool days finished in 2010, with my son's graduation from high school. Those days remain a cherished part of my life.

    Yes, it really is okay to slow down and to say "no" to too much busyness. Of course, it's hard to do so, as it is quite counter-culture, since we seem to thrive on and even worship busyness nowadays.
