daybook

#25 for 2010
Hosted by Peggy at the Simple Woman's Daybook

Outside my window ...
the sun is shining and it is going to be another hot day ...
I think the forecasted high is 99 degrees.

I am hearing ...
LB and JW talking ... D is still asleep.

I am wearing ...
a navy and yellow knit set that Mama gave me years ago. 
I'm not one to give up on a garment just because it has a little age on it!

I am going ...
to take JW to his first speech class of the year and to the fruit stand while he's there.
We'll all be going to my Daddy's birthday dinner tonight.

I am hoping ...
that our local fruit stand has some really good peaches for a reasonable price!

I am noticing that ...
I am not as organized as I would like to be for the beginning of the school year.

I am thinking ...
about our school year and all the things I want to accomplish.

I am reading ...
the book of Romans and lots of school books.

I am creating ...
I have begun crocheting my first scarf.  I am finding the whole process of crochet very relaxing.  My goal is to learn how to make a doll blanket for a shoebox I am working on.

On my mind ...
plans for the kick-off we are working on for the Operation Christmas Child collection season.

I am remembering ...
the fun time we had with friends from church this weekend and how much we appreciate those friends.

Counting my blessings ...
I'll say it again ... AIR CONDITIONING!
and ... friends willing to lend a helping hand, new adventures, speech classes, hand-me-down furniture

Words that I am pondering ...
"In order to lead, we must first learn to follow."

From the learning rooms ...
new adventures and some new plans for organizing all the "stuff" that comes with homeschooling.

From the kitchen ...
sandwiches for lunch and spaghetti for supper at my parents' house. 
I am also working on a plan for LB to contribute more to both the menu planning and the cooking and cleaning in the kitchen.

Around the house ...
the new-to-us chest of drawers is in the boys' room and almost full.  Today, I'll tackle getting LB's room ready for her "new" grown up dresser - complete with a mirror!

A few plans for the rest of the week ...
hanging out with my family tonight, Keepers tomorrow, the first meeting of our new homeschool group Thursday evening, and, what I hope is a quiet and uneventful Saturday!

One of my favorite things ...
Ronnie helping me make plans and set goals for school.

A couple of pictures to share ...
D showing off the carrot he drew all by himself!
LB with the first rag she has completed ... so proud!

Great job on the carrot D! And Lb's dishcloth is beautiful! But, oh, her little sunburned cheeks and arms! Tomorrow is an inside day!

Tell D. I love his carrot. He'll have to teach Max how to draw one.

Tell LB her dishrag is great! Get her to bring it tomorrow, maybe it will inspire Izzy.
