FOR TODAY Monday August 1, 2011...
Outside my window... sunny and temperate. For now.
I am thinking... about funny things kids say. I was talking with M-girl yesterday while she was getting ready for church. I suggested to her that she could wear the necklace that Grammy sent her, and she asked to wear the pin too. I said, "Sometimes, M-girl, less is more." She looked at me strangely and said, "That's a
I am thankful... Jason's brother is back safely after a month in the Congo.
From the learning rooms... back to Ancient Egypt this week ... the Middle Kingdoms. I also think we're going to move on to our study of the human body.
In the kitchen... there really isn't much going on. I may try Mystie's Intense Coffee Ice Cream.
I am wearing... Buckeye jammies.
I am creating... kitchen habits. Or trying.
I am going... to another Clippers game!
I am wondering... how late the children will rest.
I am reading... oh, all the same things ... and all the book club books I failed to complete ... I really should try to finish *something*
I am hoping... the children sleep in this morning. No Quiet Time yesterday, late night tonight, and zoo tomorrow doesn't bode well if they don't sleep in some.
I am looking forward to... a mostly quiet week at home.
I am hearing... dogs banging on the door to come in. But I want them to stay out.
Around the house... I should fold and iron some laundry.
I am pondering... read aloud choices to follow The Phantom Tollbooth. I was considering The Wind in the Willows, but am wondering if that might be better in a year or two, and now am considering The Cricket in Times Square. Any recommendations?
One of my favorite things... the Lebanon Blues & Ribs fest and meandering through a bunch of antique shops and the downtown every year.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Clippers, kids at the zoo with my parents, Lebanon. That's about it ... doesn't it sound nice :)
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
