For Today...Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Outside my window...sunshine and an unbelievable amount of pine pollen. There are piles of yellow everywhere. Everything is yellow – everything!

I am thinking...about how to structure the rest of the day.

I am thankful for...a healthy family, especially as I pray for friends who have children battling various health issues.

I am wearing...khaki capris, a blue knit short-sleeved top, sandals.

I am remembering...that last week at this time we were still comfortable in pants and long sleeves. What a change a week can bring!

I am going...to get Easter pictures downloaded and posted tomorrow! I am determined!

I am reading...Isaac Newton by Mitch Stokes – hoping to get it finished very quickly so I can get and read Lisa Whelchel's new book to review.

I am hoping...the rest of the week is productive.

I am hearing...Steven crawling on the floor playing with the cats; fans running throughout the house in an attempt to delay the use of the air conditioner just a little while longer.

On my mind...the aforementioned friends and their children and the many health issues being battled.

From the learning rooms...finally starting our planting project – working on the “equipment” this week. The first seeds will be exposed to water on Friday. Reading about Eli Whitney and Nat Bowditch.

Noticing that...I didn't do the Daybook last week. It was a busy Tuesday, if I remember correctly.

Pondering these words...”I was a little nervous about my test. Then I had my quiet time and prayed that Jesus would help me with the test. Now I'm hardly nervous at all.” Olivia yesterday before taking her first standardized test. Oh, how I love to see signs of spiritual growth in my children! That is one of the greatest gifts a mother's heart can receive!

From the kitchen...lots of leftovers this week. And the need to bake bread, make granola bars, and cook up several other things we're running low on.

Around the house...piles of laundry – I'm behind!
One of my favorite things...the knowledge that my family likes being around me.

A few plans for the rest of the week...hopefully settling back into the “routine” we are accustomed to after having appointments the first two days.

A picture worth sharing...nothing today...but the Easter pictures will come tomorrow. Yes, they will! Again, I am determined!

I enjoyed reading your daybook. Love Nathaniel Bowditch ~ Are you reading the JLLatham book? =)

Thank you so much! Yes, that's the book - and we are enjoying it so much! Right now we're trying to get the Astrea out of the Sunda Strait.

Oh good for Olivia! However the testing came out, (and I bet, well), she's learned something even more important :D
