For Today... May 24, 2010
Outside my window... cool, cloudy skies. Lows in the 40's this week. Spring?
I am thinking... I got a LOT done this weekend. Feels good :D
I am thankful for... my shiny, blue kitchen floor.
I am praying for... a couple of architecture jobs that may come Kerry's way. (When I say "job", I don't mean getting hired by a firm. I mean, getting a job from a client to design something.)
I am wearing... turquoise capris, blue t-shirt, navy cardigan. The capris were wishful thinking. I could see a bit of clear sky when I got up. I'll probably end up changing.
I am creating... clean spaces in my house, clean laundry, and an organized office.
I am going... to have Moms In Touch here today.
I am reading... All Creatures Great and Small, aloud to the boys. I'd forgotten how much there was to do with birthing in that book! All animal-related, but still a bit of an education for the boys...
I am hoping... for an uneventful week!
I am hearing... the boys hammering on something. I think they're making some kind of enormous skateboard.
I am remembering...
From the learning rooms... probability, direct and indirect objects, collages, the Alamo (!), statistics, measuring, more about acids and bases, the Mexican-American War, tints and hues, and logic puzzles.
Around the house... I'm hoping to take a room a week and do a deep cleaning. Just did the kitchen. What's next...
On my mind... as summer is coming, finding the balance between just turning the boys loose and letting them play, and providing enough structure to their day to keep them from bickering.
Pondering these words... Men and melons are hard to know. Benjamin Franklin
One of my favorite things... mmmm, the turkey taquitos we had for Saturday dinner. Adapted from this recipe.
A few plans for the rest of the week... no soccer! Okay, we have one more soccer party. No AWANA, either. I'm liking the slower pace.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
Someone has just a little bedhead going on there...
