Grasshopper Days

Grasshopper Days

For today, June 25, 2012.

Outside my window...  a few clouds rolling in, but a lovely, lovely morning.

I am hearing...  only birds, and silence.  What are the boys doing?  Should I be worried???

I am pondering...  the need for projects.  We're not doing ANY schooling over the summer, so the minions are at my disposal ;D  They do better when they have work, anyway.

I am praying...  for my brother and SIL, at the hospital right now.  She's being induced today!

I am thankful...  for how well Tate is doing with his CI.  It will be interesting to see how his appointments go this week.  His Audie in Seattle will put him in the booth to see what he's really hearing, and his therapist will undoubtedly be comparing where he is this week with last week.  So much progress already!  But a long way to go.  :D

I am going...  to stay home today, Lord willing!

I am reading...  have been too tired to do much reading this week.  Crazy!  Looking forward to getting back into The Book That Made Your World...

I am learning...  my limits.

I am looking forward to...  holding my niece!

Around the house...  flowers from the yard.  Apparently the deer don't eat peonies ;D

The Mother Load...  birthday presents to find a home for, books to read, books to catalog, projects to organize, appointments to make...  the usual.

Noticing that...  when Tate turns off his HA to work with his CI he talks really quietly!  Not sure if he sounds loud to himself or if he's just being cautious/courteous because he can't tell how loud he is.  I'll have to ask him.

Something I want to remember for later...  the funny things Gunnar says.  We're growing out of so many little cute things, but he still has a few.  Like, My friends are all sleeping in so I'll just tiddly-poop around until *** can play.  I have no idea where he picked that up.

A favorite quote for today...  The truth hurts, but lies kill.

One of my favorite things...  when good friends come to lunch who don't mind that you didn't clean your bathroom.  Oops.

A few plans for the rest of the week...  Tate's mapping appointment in Seattle, Tate's therapy appointment here in town, choir practice (kind of weird, this time of year, but we're having a summer fund-raising concert in July), and.. ???

A peek into my world...

At least there's something the deer don't eat...

Lovely peonies!

And, I'm sorry, but I was smiling and chuckling through your Irony post. :D So btdt.

PS~ Praise the Lord for continued CI progress!

I am absolutely jealous of your peonies. I always seem to kill mine - though I have one that survived my planting efforts!

My favorite friends are the ones who can pop in and not mind a bit of a mess (speaking of, I need to get off the computer and go mop something, haha)!
