Outside my window... Mid morning traffic sounds. A crisp fresh day!
I am thinking... I am thinking about far away family today.
From the learning rooms... vowel sounds, color review, counting review.
(new charts hanging in the schoolroom.)
I am thankful for...A wise and wonderful husband.
From the kitchen... Not following the menu this week at all. Last night we had black bean and ham soup with hot cornbread. I think my oven has been on everyday this week! The cooler weather is nice for cooking!
I am wearing... Still in my pj's, clutching my hot cup of black coffee!
I am reading...
Ann Tatlock's Every Secret Thing
I am hoping... Not sure what my hopes are for today.
I am creating... Working on filling out lesson plans now that I have my parent kits. I am trying to combine Kindergarten and First grades. The first few months will be a lot of double lesson days trying to learn phonics so we can read!
I am praying... That everything goes smoothly at home while we are gone for our anniversary. Aahhh so much to worry pray about. Especially letting #1 son drive around all this traffic with a vehicle...and no curfew or mileage limits or...(?) Yikes!
Around the house... Windows are open house is getting fresh air. It's needed. Some kind of sickness has been going through at church. We always catch it, whether we want it or not! My manly man has had it since Monday. Coughing, sneezing and general misery for the last three days! He is a LOUD sick person too! Makes us all realize that yes, he doesn't feel good. Now I must strip my bed and wash linens. Maybe spray some LYSOL.
One of my favorite things... The sound of my windchime...just outside ...right behind where my desk is.
A few plans for the rest of the week... The men from church are going camping tomorrow night. I will be home mainly alone until #1 son returns home from work at 12:30 a.m. I am thinking about having pizza for my dinner and watching a couple really good, girly-girl, cry fest, chick flicks! (Aww...bummer. I am not even done with my post and my manly man just called and said he is not going camping after being so sick. Bummer. I hate watching girl movies with so much testosterone in the room. They always check to see what my reactions are going to be!)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
(This is a picture of my maternal grandparents who were married September 9, 1943. My Mom thinks I resemble her. Do you think so?)
