Not Quite Ordinary Observations

For Today...Monday, July 25, 2011

Outside my window...droopy bushes and brown grass; a scattering of clouds just teasing us with the possibility of rain.

I am thinking...about writing.

I am thankful for...homeschool; enough food that we actually got to choose which leftovers to eat today; vehicles that are still amazingly faithful despite their age and mileage.

I am wearing...coral skirt and sea green top, bare feet, hair in a clip.

I am creating...a new weekly chore schedule and plan. It’s just time to revamp.

I am remembering...winter and hot chocolate. Mmmmmm…

I am going...to be very productive over the next hour and a half. I’m determined.

I am reading...just finished Stealing Jake by Pam Hillman, and I’m not sure what’s coming next. Gotta check my book review list.

I am praying...for rain. Lots and lots of rain.

I am hearing...the ceiling fan. Otherwise, it’s mostly quiet in the house.

From the learning rooms...learning about the making books & ball point pens; electricity in the body; magnetism; skyscrapers; the Statue of Liberty; George Washington Carver; the original Ferris Wheel; division, division, and more division.

Noticing that...my mind isn’t getting in gear today.

Pondering these words...I had something I really wanted to share. It was awesome. It’s gone now, though. Not a clue. Maybe it will come back before next week!

From the kitchen...aforementioned leftovers.

Around the house...clutter – hence the need to revamp the chore schedule.

One of my favorite things...rain.

A few plans for the rest of the week...finishing our ladies book study with a potluck tonight; a night in LR with just my hubby!; joining a pastor’s wives panel at a ladies conference on Saturday.

A picture worth sharing...what happens when Daddy tries to lie down on the couch for a Sunday afternoon nap. (What you don’t see is Olivia’s bunny tucked up under him, inviting the “rescue the bunny” attack.)100_9580
