For Today...Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Outside my window...a sky almost white with haze and dust from the lack of rain and the burning of fields; another upper-nineties heat wave – hopefully the last gasp of intense summer.
I am thinking...about life and how quickly it passes. How greatly I need to enjoy each moment.
I am thankful for...a hubby who is comfortable as a daddy and has no qualms about being either at home or out and about with his three munchkins, even when I’m not there.
I am wearing...yellow summer dress covered with orange flowers, hair braided, feet bare.
I am creating...ideas for homemade Christmas presents.
I am remembering...Jacob – a little boy (well, at least he was little five years ago!!) in Memphis who Olivia was determined she was going to marry one day. His father has been battling cancer for years. Today a local father with a son about Jacob’s age passed away after his battle with cancer, and it made me think of Jacob and his family.
I am going...to do school planning today. I can’t keep putting it off!
I am reading...I’m actually between books right now. Trying to decide where to go next – so many books, so little time!
I am hoping...for fall to arrive soon. I’m so ready!
I am hearing...the quiet of rest time – few sounds other than music playing.
From the learning rooms...the beginnings of school – math, Bible, read-aloud, etc. We will officially start Core 4 on Monday, whether I’m ready or not!
Noticing that...the weeks are flying by.
From the kitchen...a new menu planning approach that I’m hoping will help smooth out the process.
Around the house...kids playing quietly or napping; small pockets of clutter that still needs to find a home; freshly folded laundry; the last few wall-hangings and curtains waiting to be hung.
One of my favorite things...fall – will it ever come?
A few plans for the rest of the week...school planning, menu planning, grocery shopping, a cooking day (either this week or Monday), a wedding
A picture worth sharing...wonderful helpers.
