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.)
