For Today, February 21, 2011
Outside my window... cold and sunny.
I am thinking... about yesterday - a good day :D
I am thankful for... friends that came to lunch yesterday, elk in the crockpot, and the way all the kids (from 1 to 14) got along just fine.
I am praying for... work for Kerry, wisdom for parenting and schooling, growing boys into men.
I am wearing... jeans, sweater, the usual.
I am going... to sing with friends tonight - rehearsals starting up again.
I am reading... The Friendly Persuasion and Except For Me and Thee, by Jessamyn West.
I am hoping... for the phone to ring for Kerry...
I am hearing... tappety, tappety, tappety. Duh.
I am remembering... recently dreamed we were still living in our first house. Small, but I miss the yard. Well, I miss the dirt. It was good dirt. Things grew like crazy. Unlike here. Ugh.
From the learning rooms... civil war in Spain and the rise of Franco, money math, creative writing using Chris Van Allsburg, converting decimals to fractions to percents, drawing regions of North America, handwriting practice, and working on memorizing Philippians 2.
From the kitchen... leftovers, probably. Kerry will be cooking because I'll be at rehearsal. :D
Around the house... I moved the furniture again. Just because I like to.
My valentine flowers are barely hanging on.
On my mind... getting back into a better routine of praying for the boys. Might share more about this. Want to join me on a little adventure?
Noticing that... the days are a little bit longer.
Pondering these words...
Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
One of my favorite things... sunlight.
A few plans for the rest of the week... routine, routine, routine.
Here is a picture I am sharing...
National Geographic, under the wave.
