For Today...Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Outside my window...beautiful, sunny spring weather.
I am thinking...about how to structure this day and make it a productive one.


I am thankful for...creative ideas that God bestows upon me. I can never come up with anything creative and successful until I seek the Lord's guidance. But, once I do seek His help, the ideas come flowing!


I am wearing...denim capris (yay!), ¾ sleeved pink and white flowered top, sandals.

I am creating...Easter skirts for myself and the girls, and trying to mentally process an adaptation to a shoe pouch pattern – trying to rework it to fit into the girls' closet.

I am remembering...to rejoice.


I am going...to fill out an application for seminary soon – hopefully this week.

I am reading...nothing new this week – must finish Here Burns My Candle this week and start a biography of Isaac Newton.

I am hoping...that it does work out financially and time-wise for me to pursue my Masters alongside Doug while still being diligent to teach my children.

I am hearing...Olivia moving chairs in the dining room so she can sweep; Steven playing the keyboard behind me, creating a cacophony of music as it clashes with the music I have going in iTunes. I just might have to turn off iTunes for a bit! :-)

On my mind...adoption.
From the learning rooms...preparing for our newest growing experiments with corn and beans, now that the weather is warming up; biographies of Eli Whitney and Martha Washington; the Crow Indians; the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe; about to start a bigger memorization challenge – Olivia has chosen excerpts from “The Song of Hiawatha” and Angela has chosen “Paul Revere's Ride.”
From the kitchen...quiche at the request of my lovely princesses – planning to have them make it today – and the need to plan out the menu for the rest of the week.

Around the house...lots of laundry to be caught up on.
One of my favorite things...a love for learning.

A few plans for the rest of the week...a visit from my sister today, church tomorrow, a couple of days to just be home, and then a Saturday trip to Monroe.

A picture worth sharing...it’s not quite as loving as it looks – Steven’s intention was to squish his sister, not snuggle with her!  And you can tell how much she minded!
