Outside my window... It's very cold. Other parts of the country are colder.
(our giant icicle- over 4 feet long!)
I am thinking... I am thinking I am envious of you more southern ladies who have had a chance to do yard work (April Jo .) I am remembering it's strawberry season in California. . . big sigh. I am remembering the moderate 70 degree southern California days. I am thinking that a lot of things will be happening this year, oh my!
From the learning rooms... Clock review, measuring review, -ed- ing, Looking at finishing up our school year April 30th, I am going to start looking at other curriculum for next year. Do any of you have any good curriculum recommendations for me?
I am thankful for... That God continually meets our needs over and above what we need, BEFORE we even ask for anything. I am thankful for the love of my husband. I am rejoicing that I enjoy the company of my children and am thankful for #2 son keeping me company as our nest has grown smaller.
From the kitchen... We enjoyed more leftovers from the kitchen last night. #1 son sure was good at keeping the leftovers eaten for me. And I am trying to cook smaller meals Tonight- Cornish Game Hen dinner. I am going to make chocolate peanut butter cookies after school this morning as well.
I am wearing... It's late in the morning. I am still motivating myself to get going. I am in my fuzzy purple robe with my wild morning hair.
I am reading... I ordered the Sean and Leanne Touhy book, "In A Heartbeat" it should arrive today. I loved their story, and the movie. I believe the Lord has really blessed their lives because of how they give of themselves.
I am hoping and praying... Hoping and praying for so many things. Family, safety, desires of my heart, my husband, church searching, my children, spiritual growth, that I may be a blessing to others.
I am creating... Still working on that picture project, I really just need to place an order then pay for them, then get to work on photo albums. I did a tiny bit of decorating in Aaron's room. All the decor, bedding and furniture I have given to him so that room may be empty in the next few months anyway. I am not sure how I will replace what he takes with him.
Around the house... Everything is fairly clean! All the Christmas decorations have been put in the attic. I had been short one storage box. Still an unfinished car (or two) and car parts laying around. Aaron's Mazda is coming back together. More parts are on their way for that as well.I am getting spring fever. I want to re-arrange furniture but not sure how I could do that. I want to go work in my yard. I wonder how my 'garden' will do this year?
One of my favorite things... Missing the west coast and everything about it. To me, it is one of my favorite things.
(palm trees, eucalyptus, pepper trees, mountains, lakes, logging roads, rainy winters, the coast, the valley, eastern Oregon, Deschutes river, lava flow, old friends, good churches)
A few plans for the rest of the week... School at the library tomorrow, we need the change in routine. Medieval Times with friends on Saturday. A new church to try on Sunday.
Something to share...
I am wishing it was warm enough outside for this...
Have a great weekend!!
