day in my life

Friday was the 14th and time for Jenny Wren's day in my life post.

After getting the girls off to school, I came home to start the laundry, tidy the living room, and start supper in the crock pot.

I then retreated to my office for a very busy morning. I was trying to get ready for an afternoon class, finish preparing for a teacher field trip to Lexington and Concord on Tuesday, and wrap up a power point for a presentation in New York. Lunch was a bowl of soup at my desk. Lots of emails and phone calls as well about family Thanksgiving and our upcoming school Winter Fair. Truly a multi-tasking morning.

After lunch I took a group of 8th-grade students to our local cemetery. Their task was to find a Civil War soldier and gather information about him.

Later they will be researching the soldier's life--the family and community he left behind and the battles he fought. The kids seemed to really enjoy it.

I was a little stressed because I had lost my cheat sheet of where all the gravestones were. Luckily every student found his or her soldier.

After the class I dropped off a bunch of packages at the post office--Caps to Cap Haitien, a package to a certain blogger, and other work stuff.

I went to school and sat through an after school group violin lesson. After we got home the girls settled in for "Friday afternoon at the movies" and I did some tidying. No time for housework this weekend. We're chopping wood.

Dinner from the crock pot was delicious.

We spent a quiet evening reading our books. Hels and I are both reading books about Queen Elizabeth and are quite engrossed. Hels--The Redheaded Princess and me--The Lady Elizabeth. It's been fun to compare notes.

That's a day in my life for November!

What a busy day! I love the color of your bedroom walls and the big windows. It was rainy(although very warm)here all day yesterday not a very good day for chopping wood, I hope you had a better day for it.
I like the new needle-felted header.

I love posts like this...everyday posts that really show what a family is up to.

Katie is reading The Redheaded Princess, too, thanks to your recommendation! :)

That last photo of your bedroom is so beautiful. I like that idea of picking a Civil War soldier and then researching his life.

A busy but productive and fun day. I love your idea about the research in the graveyard. I absolutely adore the oldest parts of the graveyards and love visiting different ones. My husband indulges me whenever on rides:-)
