Not Quite Ordinary Observations
For Today...Monday, June 29, 2015
In the great outdoors...a rather hazy day, with temps rising again after a slightly less hot weekend.
Within our four walls...a little taste of routine as chores have been reestablished.
Yet, also as much rest as possible today. The past two months have been utterly exhausting. We are ready for rest!
A heart of thanksgiving...for air conditioning; for a less busy week; for the chance to begin to reintroduce routine and cement the settling-in process.
A heart of prayer...for a precious family leaving the only home their children have ever known. Since it’s a move from overseas back to the US, it will be a much more permanent goodbye than ours was. My heart aches for them, especially as today is a homesick day for my kids. So, I feel the mama tug of what my friends are dealing with on a much larger scale. But I’m also excited to see where God leads them next!
Random observations...I’m not a big fan of summer. Praying for a cool spell so we can work in the garage and the yard.
My fantastic children...are rolling right back into the chore schedule without a word of complaint. So thankful for them!
Thoughts from the kitchen...leftovers, probably.
On my bookshelf...stacks reminding me of the need to reestablish a reading schedule.
Projects...this week the primary project is school stuff, I do believe. And a little preparation for joining a local AHG troop.
Sounds of the moment...a lawn mower outside; music wafting in from the living room.
From Hibbard Academy...planning and prep
A favorite thing from last week...Saturday night date night after a full week without much hubby time.
The planner...a couple of lunch dates/get togethers; a bit more progress toward routine.
Because visuals are fun...the dining room floor. Why? I have no idea. The picture was on my phone for some crazy reason. So, I thought I’d share it with you. Because that’s about where I am mentally today!
