#24 for 2010
Hosted by Peggy @ The Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window ... it is humid and miserably hot.  This is the kind of weather that makes one incredibly thankful for an air-conditioner.

I am hearing ... LB playing with the dog.

I am going ... to Keepers this afternoon and then church tonight.

I am wearing ... black shorts and an Operation Christmas Child t-shirt.

I am noticing that ... it has been almost a month since I posted a daybook.  It has been a busy summer.

I am thinking ... about what I need to get done before one of JW's  friends comes to play tomorrow.

I am hoping ... that it cools off some soon.

I am reading ... British Literature, getting ready for co-op to start at the end of this month.

I am creating ... crocheted rags!  I am so proud that I have taught myself how to crochet a few stitches, but I still need to learn more about how to follow larger patterns before I tackle a big project.

On my mind ... school.

I am remembering ... that today is my little brother's birthday.

Counting my blessings ... air conditioning, having no reason to be outdoors today, starting school, co-op classes, friends to hang out with today.

Words that I am pondering ... some questions from our study of Philippians in Sunday School ... the last two weeks we have been talking about the godly thought life.
*How carefully do you evaluate your sources of information?
*How carefully do you choose those that you allow to teach you, or to model behavior for you?
In what areas might you make better choices?
*How do you discern what is worthy of study? Of remembering? Of forgetting?

From the learning rooms ... JW is getting ready to read to me, LB is doing math, and D is doing dot art.

From the kitchen ... anything that doesn't require turning on the oven, it heats the house up too much.

Around the house ... tons of laundry.

A few plans for the rest of the week ... the kids' back to school trip with the Wednesday Night Kids from church ... this year we are going to the Petrified Forest in Flora, MS.  I am sure that it will be lots of fun, but it is going to be HOT!

One of my favorite things ... learning new things.

A picture to share ...

Your dishcloth is beautiful! I am jealous! I haven't decided yet whether crocheting is fun. Rosana said not to decide until she shows me instead of relying on my dear 14 year old to show me! Maybe there is a trick she can show me or just possibly the crocheting gene from my grandmother skipped my generation completely and Amy got it all.

I am reading British Literature this year, too. Love it. Just finished Pride and Prejudice (for the first time!). School is definitely on my mind. Got to get back into the full homeschool groove next week. We went to the Petrified Forest in Arizona on Saturday. A huge field trip still in progress this week…

Thanks for sharing your daybook. Always interesting to read a day in the life of others.

Hi, Jennifer,

Sounds like a full week for you...but so glad you posted a daybook. I so enjoy reading them!

Hope your field trip is successful and that it cools off a little bit!

Happy Wednesday!
