Outside my window... Cooler weather blowing in today and tomorrow. I am kinda excited about it. Makes me think about cozy camping and fire pits in the backyard.
I am thinking... Yep!
I am thankful... Thankful for God's word. I can find comfort for every situation and inspiration for living. It's fresh every day. This is a verse from school today . . .
Proverbs 25:11 " A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver."
From the learning rooms... It's been a rough week in our home school. Summer brain fade must have been pretty bad on our street, particularly in this yellow house of ours. Is it field trip day yet? School for Mom at Barnes and Noble with a Starbucks attached? School day at the library? I do like the fact that our new curriculum is mainly a four day curriculum with the fifth day being a test day. I've already decided Daddy isn't allowed to keep the student up past 8 p.m. on school night conquering the world at war in the computer game "RED ALERT"
It makes for BAD focus for the student the next day.
Piano practice with the new teacher, Lindsay, is going well. I like that it is a half an hour earlier this year. I'll be sure to get a picture of them this next Monday.
In the kitchen... I am PMS-ing this week. It leaves me un-inspired in the kitchen.
I went to my favorite farm stand yesterday and bought fresh white, sweet corn, heirloom and baby tomatoes. I ATE 4 pieces of corn and a half of sliced tomato for dinner last night. We were supposed to have sloppy Jo's and tater tots!
I am requesting a good bacon cheeseburger, french fries and a vanilla malt from this place for my lunch today.
I am wearing... I am wearing the same thing I wore yesterday. . .bad huh? A green top and khaki capri's.
My bangs are pulled back and my hair is curly today. I am uninspired in the hair department lately. I don't care for growing my hair out. It's hard work. I am trying to grow my bangs out to see if I like it. They are down to the end of my nose. I straightened my hair on Monday for piano lessons. It was a bit poufy and my bangs kept falling in my face.
(Poufy Bobbed hair like Betheelou's!)
(I wish my hair did things like this gals!)
I am creating... I am STILL working on camper curtain ideas.
I don't think that project will be done before the next camping trip.
((I saw this picture this morning in my pottery barn catalog and thought of my sister. I think she'd love the arrangement that is on the wall above the bed. Simple decorations with stuff that may not be too hard to find. Click on the picture to make it larger.))
I have some ideas for organizing before our move, but there is lots of time for that yet.
(This area needs paired down and cleaned.)
(I spent $10 a piece on these ferns at a local grocery in July. ((They were FREE in the forest in Pennsylvania!)) I am trying to decide if I want to put them in a flower bed or re-pot them and bring them inside. I've never done really well with live ferns in the house. What about you?
I am reading/watching... we've watched two old mysteries this week~ Detective Kitty O' Day and Adventures of Kitty O' Day
They were cute and fun shows!
I've been reading John Grisham books. I haven't read any of his recent books. He writes decently, maybe a bit racy at times. I've read The Appeal and The Broker recently.
I am hearing... Classic country playing soflty in the background. My student reading out loud. Noises from my busy neighborhood.
Around the house... I left dirty dishes in the sink yesterday. The dishes in the dishwasher need put away. I did clean the toilets since last week.
My manly man put most of the laundry away yesterday! Yippee!!
One of my favorite things... Day dreaming recently about MOVING!! I've also been craving the peace a quiet of camping. Manly man is due some comp days for all his duty. I'm hoping he'll take me camping next week OR for my anniversary the following week.
A few plans for the rest of the week: No firm plans. Maybe some time with Sharon and baby Anastasia tomorrow. Bachelor David on Sunday. I've got a shopping bug~I need to find us matching colored outfits for our family pictures.
Here is picture I am sharing...
(Banjo is always photogenic!)
