For Today... June 1, 2010
Outside my window... cloudy skies, cool damp smells from last night's rain, the last of the dogwood blossoms on the tree, and on the driveway, and stuck all over the van.
I am thinking... about Cutzi's most recent post, and how much we worry and fret, and why can't I just manage Matt. 6:33? Seeking first, not also.
I am thankful for... a mostly relaxing long weekend, the sickness that wasn't, and getting a little project done for next month's (I mean THIS month's) round of birthdays.
I am praying for... work.
I am wearing... green jeans. Blue t-shirt. White socks.
I am creating... little birthday projects.
I am going... very, very slowly this morning. Where is my energy?
I am reading... All Creatures Great and Small, still. The boys are loving it. Especially the bits about Tricky Woo. And Nugent.
I am hoping... that the boys will get back in the school groove... after four days off.
I am hearing... the boys, out in the driveway, doing something with Tate's model of the Alamo.
I am remembering... what I forgot! Oops! To get the flag up this weekend. Shame on me!
From the learning rooms... the Waitangi Treaty, squares, dividing by decimals, tessellations, permutations, Thomas Hart Benton, and thank-you notes.
From the kitchen... hmmm. Must think of something. Probably chicken.
Around the house... I cleaned and moved furniture this weekend. Love doing that. Almost feels like a new house.
On my mind... coming down the homestretch. Woo-hoo!
Noticing that... the years go by faster and faster. *sigh*
Pondering these words... Some temptations come to the industrious, but all temptations attack the idle. Charles Spurgeon
One of my favorite things... warm, undercooked brownies.
A few plans for the rest of the week... my goal for today is to remember that it is TUESDAY and not Monday.
We're going to be wrapping up most of our school-work this week. Hurray!
Here is a picture I am sharing...
An oldie, but a goodie, because it always melts my heart.
