Grasshopper Days

Grasshopper Days

For today, Monday, August 19, 2013.  

Outside my window...  cool and cloudy.  It's been a funny week, though.  Nearly every day starting out like this and ending sunny and beautiful.

Hearing...  lots of quiet, the boys are all testing.  (Usually do it at the end of school in June, but I'm behind relaxed this year.)

Pondering...  I am married to a FIFTY YEAR OLD.  Kerry had a birthday this weekend.  Can you believe it?  Half a century!

Praying...  work for Kerry, my mom (recovering nicely from hand surgery), and to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer vacation.  *happy sigh*

Thankful...  for a fun b'day party for Kerry with lots of friends and family.

Creating...  plans for a beach party on Saturday.

Going...  to get to work on that quilt top I started forever ago.  It's so odd... I have lots of time in the summer, but I don't feel motivated to quilt.  I guess I'd rather be outside when the sun shines :D

Looking forward to...  a few more warm sunny (beach?) days.

In the kitchen...  a gracious plenty of leftovers, hallelujah.

In the learning rooms...  getting ready...

Around the house...  I'm not ready for fall yet, but maybe some sunflower-y decorations???

The Mother Load...  we're outside so much in the summer that I kind of let things go in the house.  Time to get organized before the boybarians are busy with school work and have them help me do a deep-clean.  The kitchen floor needs scrubbing, windows need cleaning, furniture needs moving, and dressers need purging.  I think the boys must photo-synthesize, they grow so much over the summer.  None of their jeans fit anymore.

Noticing that...  they need to shave more often.  *sigh*

Something to remember for later...  we went for a walk yesterday and Gunnar still wanted to hold my hand.  How long will that last?

A favorite quote for today...  Everybody thinks of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing himself.  Tolstoy

One of my favorite things...  a big bunch of freshly sharpened yellow pencils :D

A few plans for the rest of the week...  finish the boys' testing, clean, and sew!

A peek into my world...

Happy 50th birthday, Kerry! He sure robbed the cradle when he married you, Julie ;-)
