daybook ... I haven't done this in awhile

FOR TODAY:
July 26, 2011

Outside my window...
It is gray and cloudy, not to mention HOT and humid

I am thinking...
that today is my oldest brother's birthday

I am thankful...
to have Ronnie home from Alaska and the family back together

From the learning rooms...
we are easing back into a full school routine ... today we will work on our science notebooks (we just started Apologia Zoology 1 ~ Flying Creatures of the 5th Day) and continue with math lessons and reading Around the World in 80 Days

In the kitchen...
I need to clean out the refrigerator ... if there is anything edible we may have leftovers for supper tonight ... if not, well then we'll just have to wait and see what mood strikes me today.

I am wearing...
black shorts and an old t-shirt of Ronnie's

I am creating...
lists of what I need to buy for school this year ... fortunately it is a pretty short list :o)
On the crafty side, I have a decoupage project that I want to find time to work on ... covering a wooden tissue box.  Not to mention that I am trying to finish a crocheted bag for Mama to use as a Bible case.

I am going...
nowhere this morning since Ronnie is using the van ... hopefully his truck will be fixed today and we will return to a 2 car family.

I am wondering...
if Ronnie is going to keep the beard he came home from Alaska sporting

I am reading...
Around the World in 80 Days with all the kids
and Little Women with just LB

I am hoping...
to find time to take the kids to the library

I am looking forward to...
a mom's only meeting of our homeschool group's leadership

I am hearing...
the kids playing fairly quietly in their rooms, waiting on me to get started with school

Around the house...
While Ronnie was in Alaska, I started working on cleaning out the clutter in our bedroom ... I would really like to finish this project in the next few days, but all the normal chores still have to be done, so we'll see if I get to it.

I am pondering...
the power of words and how they are used

One of my favorite things...
mowing the yard

A few plans for the rest of the week:
just normal, everyday life ... ain't it grand!

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...
flowers in Alaska

Nice to read a daybook from you again!! You must be really glad to have Ronnie back. Your moms-only homeschool group meeting sounds interesting - I wish we had more groups like that here.
Have a good week!
