For today --
Outside My Window... the sun has set. Dusk is falling. Sweaty kids are laughing as they put away their bikes and toys.
I am thinking... about how dirty my happy children are. I need to run a bath.
I am thankful for... summer. Being able to take a vacation trip to see my family. And being back home again.
From the kitchen... tonight we had the left-overs of last night's amazing dinner. My brother, sister-in-law, neice & nephew, were here for two days. My husband and I worked together to prepare a japanese stir-fry.
I am wearing... jean shorts, red t-shirt, pony-tail, barefoot
I am creating... some new blog features. A list of busy activity ideas for my soon-to-be 2 yr old to do while I am homeschooling his sister this fall. Another list I just realized I need to be creating is a some ideas for my daughter's birthday...only a month away!
I am going... to re-plan and re-organize our schedule & routines this week. Begin preparing for fall - curriculum, getting up earlier, chore charts, etc...
I am reading... Rainbow's End - by Irene Hannon. A little Love Inspired book my mom gave me while I was there last week.
I am hoping...for a blessed night of rest tonight. My body has been struggling/fighting against a sinus/head cold; leaving me drained. (no pun intended)
I am hearing... the humming of a fan. My dear husband beginning to softly snore.
Around the house... we got it mostly picked up before bedtime. Dishwasher is scrubbing away. Sink is shined....thanks to the flylady :)
One of my favorite things... warm chocolate cake with french vanilla ice cream on top. (another leftover from last night. so NOT needed...but ohhh yummy)
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: voting in our primary election, library time tomorrow morning. I need to study and prepare for teaching my pre-k class at church wed night. Our homeschool group's annual picnic.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
