For Today... June 7, 2001
Outside my window... Gunnar holding Podger (the rabbit), Wyatt skateboarding, and Tate is probably looking for more creatures.
I am thinking... obsessing about a quilt design, planning out the rest of the week - testing.
I am thankful for... the slower pace this week, a nice time with our company yesterday, and healthy boys.
I am praying for... eyes to see and ears to hear.
I am wearing... oh stop. Jeans. A t-shirt.
I am creating... a Christmas quilt. Once I get through the obsessing.
I am going... our last Moms In Touch today, errands tomorrow, and not much on the horizon this week.
I am reading... quilt pattern books.
I am hoping... I'm so not worried about our testing, and hoping Gunnar picks up that attitude. It's his first time and I really don't want him to stress about it.
I am hearing... Wyatt's skateboard rolling around the driveway and up and down, up and down the little ramp he's built.
I am remembering... our first house. Three boys in a bedroom that was 9'4" x 9'8". No kidding.
From the learning rooms... not much going on this week. Just testing and some history - the '49ers. Enjoying the bare walls and general tidiness :D
From the kitchen... lots of weekend leftovers to enjoy tonight.
Around the house... stacks of library books about China, the '49ers, New Zealand and the Waitangi Treaty, nerf darts from a big battle this morning, wet shoes drying from yesterday's walk in the rain, plastic soldiers, to-do lists, and Gramma Grasshopper just dropped by with candy bars for the boys, because it's testing week!
On my mind... turning over and over and over the different possibilities for some special Christmas fabric I have, waiting to be cut and sewn.
Noticing that... when I think I have a great idea at 1am... it's usually not looking so great the next morning. I'm such a genius. *sigh*
Pondering these words... "Believe boldly", from yesterday's sermon, thinking of Bartimaeus. (spelling?)
One of my favorite things... cookie dough. Oh yeah.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
Well! I guess they got everyone in the picture!
P.S. Not my kids. Not my duct tape.
