goodly things

   ♥  ♥  ♥

an hour and a half of exercise
(in a still-sleeping house)
and a half-hour meditation.

sunrise to a blue sky and fresh snow

making waffles

Magic School Bus
 (someone woke up)

smoothie (yogurt, carrots, blueberrries, oj, strawberries, apple)

making a book
(an animal encyclopedia that she calls a field journal)


The Beatles in the kitchen


bike rides
with Dad

homemade chicken noodle soup

a quick visit with friends

a cleeeeeeean kitchen

and maybe another freshly-cleaned room or two

coming up with a supper idea without too much fuss

hot cocoa with whipped cream

  1. I love how you can exercise in the house and still have sleeping babes. Whenever I try mine wake up to see what I am doing.

  2. Rosemarie -
    It's in our rumpus room, which is in the basement, so there's no impact on the floor, and we all sleep upstairs. Also - this is usually at around 6am, and the earliest Maddie gets up is around 8:30. (Trev 10:30). :) So I have morning time! (I just wish there was about six hours of it, so's I could clean house before they get up, too!)

  3. I just wanted to let you know that when searching for information about unschooling, I looked for blogs and yours popped up. You have now become the model for how I document my day. I love to be able to put it into blog format (but only occasionally get that far), and tend to over-do it. I love the simplicity, yet depth that can often be found in your posts. It reminds me that I really DON'T have to impress anybody...just document for myself.

    Keep up the good work and thanks for the inspiration!


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
