Not Quite Ordinary Observations

For Today...Monday, March 19, 2012

Outside my window...clouds, but not gloom. Although I prefer sunshine when it’s not raining, the clouds are much easier to handle when it’s still bright!

I am thinking...that it can’t be possible that March is two-thirds gone! I have two more weeks of break. Making steady progress on the list, but still much to do.

I am thankful for...plenty of clothes for the kids, yet again.

I am wearing...black knit capris and a maroon top. Yep, the Monday color’s back. Although this one is short-sleeved, so it’s at least a different shirt!

I am creating...nothing. Just tackling The Big March List. When things get back to normal, I’ll hopefully get back to creating.

I am remembering...last year when it was still chilly right about now and there was no real hurry about getting summer clothes out.

I am going...to finally get to open the Sonlight box that came last week! It’s part of the March list, but other things were higher on the list. But a whole week?!?! I’ve never waited anywhere near that long! Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever waited more than a couple of hours. That’s what I call self-control, folks. But I think tomorrow will have to be the day.

I am reading...just finished Beauty for Ashes by Dorothy Love for review. Next week’s review book is a children’s Easter book, so I think I’ll take this week to read another “just for me” book – Chasing Mona Lisa by Tricia Goyer.

I am hoping...for a productive week.

I am hearing...the quiet hums of electricity and a few dishes clinking as the girls empty the dishwasher for me.

On my mind...my next blog post for the Home Educating Family blog, due tomorrow. There are some great posts going up over there! Click on over and check them out. Even if you don’t homeschool, there are still some encouraging posts.

From the learning rooms...it seems that Latin is the only thing we’ve kept up with over the past few weeks. This month has been much choppier and less routine than I expected, so it’s been harder to keep up with the other things like Polish, piano, and typing. What a blessing that we took the month off. Think God might have had something to do with that? Smile

Noticing that...it’s warm in here. I think the fan is going to have to come back out.

From the kitchen...broccoli, chicken, and rice casserole, made mostly by the kids.

Around the house...projects coming together.

A favorite thing from last week...the projects that were accomplished on Saturday. I think that deserves its own post, though, so be looking for it over the next couple of days.

A few plans for the rest of the week...lunch with the Gleaners Sunday school class tomorrow, a birthday party on Saturday, and just plugging away at that list!

You held off opening the box for a week? Wow. That is impressive [smile]. Happy Box (opening) Day!

It's been quite the challenge, Luke! The kids are going nuts, too!
