For Today...Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Outside my window...Fall! Cool temperatures (only up to 71 today!) and the beginnings of falling leaves. Still very, very dry, though. Praying for rain!
I am thinking...about how to make independent work time work for Olivia. I need to not have to do it all with her, but it’s not working for me to leave it all up to her. Praying for a solution.
I am thankful for...a preschooler! It makes teaching the older two so much easier!
I am wearing...jeans, black short-sleeve top, hair down, feet bare.
I am creating...photo organization in preparation for creating photo calendars.
I am remembering...
I am going...to get fall clothes out soon. Hopefully before it really gets cold!
I am reading...still just the kids’ school stuff. Still need to remedy that.
I am hoping...for exciting news about a perfect offer on our house. Soon.
I am hearing...a ticking clock; the faint whir of the ceiling fan; the distant sound of Angie and Steven playing together on the other side of the house; the scratching of Olivia pencil against her paper.
On my mind...friends who also need their houses to sell.
From the learning rooms...South America; the Gold Rush; inventions; introduction to electricity.
Noticing that...Olivia and I frequently tend to be scatterbrained on the same days. Wondering what the common factor is – does one cause the other, or are both of us influenced by something else? Something to pray about.
From the kitchen...today was Parmesan Chicken Cordon Bleu, and it was a HUGE hit! Even picky, slow-eating Steven had his plate cleared and was asking for seconds before I was half-way done!
Around the house...fall decor, no AC running, sheepskin house shoes making their appearance.
One of my favorite things...fall!! (I’m sure I’ve never mentioned that before!)
A few plans for the rest of the week...fun free activities coming up! Friday night is opening night of a model train display at the Historic Arkansas Museum. Then Saturday morning is the air show at Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville. Anyone want to join us?
A picture worth sharing...one of the best ways to tease the kids is to take their stuffies and do funny things with them. Here’s Angela’s Cowabella ready for a BBQ!
