Simple Woman



Outside my window...


I am thinking...
about my birthday this week, and also Rosie's 9th birthday.  She wants a "Frozen" birthday - sigh... in June.  I'm thinking light blue table cloth, some lighting, and need to hit Pinterest for some more ideas!


Follow Soson Defofon's board Party theme: Frozen on Pinterest.




I am thankful...
that sis is recovering from her concussion, that soccer season is over (and I'm not in charge of it!), Noah has no more pain in his leg and Izzy doesn't even mention her foot any more

In the kitchen...
Some more recipes from this gem!!



I am wearing...
black sports skirt and blue T from Mother's Day.

I am going...
  • to workout Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and possibly even walk in the afternoon. .
  • to record one of my workouts.  My 55th birthday is coming up and I've been blogging about the workouts I've done for the last few years.  So just as something a little special, I'll be videoing myself doing one of those workouts, adding some of my own dance touches, and if I'm not totally mortified by it - posting it here just for fun. 
  • To lay off of potatoes.  There seems to be a lot of discussion over whether they are considered paleo or not.  They certainly are not allowed on the SCD diet.  I always eat them with the skins, but maybe I should try a week without them and see how it goes. 
  • To pay off medical bills for Izzy's foot. 
  • Paying a legal retainer  (grumble, grumble, insert expletive here!) 

I am pondering...
the reality that my life truly is half over - and that's if you consider the possibility of making it to 110!

I am reading...










From the Learning Rooms...
Taking it easy this week since I have standardized tests on Monday and Friday, a funeral on Wednesday and driver's ed starting this week too - as well as a birthday party to plan!

One of my favorite things...
Yard sales!
I found this crate last year and bought it.  I wasn't sure what I would do with it, but I figured I could eventually store something in it.

Then this weekend I found these great parfait glasses for only $8 - for all of them!

I am hoping...
  • To work walking back into my exercise program now that it's nice out.  Walked last Sunday about two miles and my hips actually hurt the next day.  You don't think about walking as being much exercise, but it truly is!
  • Get some flute practice done.
  • Start pondering my curriculum choices for next year. 
  • That Noah will be ready for the CLEP in American History 2 within the next few weeks. 


I am looking forward to...
Rosie and Noah's piano recital - which will also be on my birthday this year - just like it was last year!

Some pictures I am sharing...
